Boomerang UK HD officially launched on Sky HD today (24/06/2015), the channel is now available on channel 603, the standard definition version of the channel has moved to channel 636. Sky standard definition customers haven’t been affected by the channel changes. Virgin Media and other TV providers currently don’t have any plans to include the channel. Boomerang UK has increasingly been airing new content which means there is now a need to broadcast in high definition. The channel has been experimenting with letterbox widescreen since 1st June and with a HD test feed since the 10th June.
