In Australia, Turner operates the news brand CNN International, the kids’ channels Boomerang and Cartoon Network and the entertainment channel TCM Turner Classic Movies. It also manages local Internet-based services such as College Humor, and oversees partnerships for TNT, TBS, truTV and Adult Swim-branded content. Turner teams with Warner Bros. and HBO to leverage Time Warner’s global reach.
