NEW YORK – A new streaming service aimed at kids will have episodes of classic cartoons like “Scooby Doo,” “The Flintstones” and “The Jetsons” as well as original series.
Time Warner’s Boomerang service joins a crowded market of kid-aimed online subscription video. Netflix and Amazon Prime have kids sections, Nickelodeon’s Noggin streaming app is aimed at preschoolers and “Sesame Street” is available from HBO.
The Boomerang service initially will work only on Apple and Android phones and tablets and on computers. The cost is $5 a month. It’ll eventually be available for TVs through streaming gadgets such as Apple TV and Roku. The service launches in a few months.
