Boomerang is a subscription streaming service which provides animated content from Warner Bros. (Bugs Bunny, Looney Toons, etc) and Hanna-Barbera (The Flintstones, The Jetsons, etc) among others.
Originally created as a cartoon block for the Cartoon Network, Boomerang launched their over-the-top subscription service in 2017 with a focus on classic cartoons.
This page will focus on the subscription streaming service accessible through the Boomerang website and apps. This service is only available to subscribers in the United States.
Apps for iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV and Roku are available for mobile users while you can also stream content from the website.
To get started with Boomerang, you can sign up and get a 7 day free trial before paying a subscription fee of $4.99/month or an annual fee of $39.99.
On this page, you’ll see how to start a Boomerang free trial on the website or with Amazon Prime Video channels – two popular options for streaming Boomerang.
How To Start A Boomerang Free Trial
You can start a Boomerang free trial by downloading the app for any of your devices.
Two commons ways to get a Boomerang free trial without the app are to sign up via the official website or to add the Boomerang channel on Amazon for Prime subscribers.
You can do both trials back to back and get up to 2 weeks of free Boomerang streaming.
Here’s how easy it is to start both free trials.
Start Your Boomerang Free Trial Directly
Starting your Boomerang free trial directly from the website has a few benefits.
First of all, you would only be doing one free trial as opposed to doing a free trial for any service that carries Boomerang. For example, if you’re not a Prime member and you decide to try Boomerang through Prime Video channels, you’ll have to take the Prime free trial first.
Also, when you sign up directly from the website, you can use your login credentials for the apps. You can also stream the videos in your browser.
It is easy to start a Boomerang free trial as outlined below. Here are the steps.
1. Choose from a monthly or annual plan
When you click the “Start Trial” link or button, the first thing you’ll be asked to do is to choose a plan. You can choose to pay on a monthly basis or save up to 33% by choosing the annual billing option.
Boomerang provides all the information you need to know about your free trial on that screen. You’ll be able to see when you free trial expires so you will know when to cancel if you need to.
2. Create your account with email & password
After choosing a plan, Boomerang will ask you to confirm your age by typing it into a box. Then you’ll be able to create your account by entering your email address and choosing a password.
3. Checkout with credit card or PayPal
Boomerang lets you choose from either credit/debit card or PayPal for checkout.
You’ll need to read the billing agreement and check the box to indicate that you understand the terms before clicking the checkout button.
If you choose PayPal, you’ll be forwarded to PayPal to authorize payment.
4. You’re done. Start watching.
When your payment method has been successfully authorized, you’re done and can start watching all the content you can over the next 7 days.
You can use your credentials to log into the app and watch on your tablet, phone or smart TV.
Add Boomerang on Prime Video Channels
If you’re not a Prime subscriber, you’re missing out on access to one of the biggest streaming video libraries online.
With Prime Video, you can watch 1000s of shows and movies as well as add premium subscription channels like Paramount+, PBS Kids and Boomerang, all of which offer a 7 day free trial.
To add Boomerang, you’ll need to have an active free trial or subscription. Once logged in follow the instructions to start your free trial.
- Visit the Boomerang channel page in Prime Video.
- Click on the “Learn more” banner at the top to get started or mouse over any video and click “watch with a free 7 day trial”.
- Click on the “Start Your 7-day free trial” button.
- Confirm your details on the next page.
- Click on the “Start Your Free Trial” button to start watching.
Amazon wouldn’t charge you until after the free trial period is over. You can visit your settings page in your account to cancel to avoid getting charged if you decide you don’t want to keep the channel.
Pricing After Boomerang Free Trial
Boomerang charges you either a monthly or yearly subscription fee only after you’ve completed the 7 day free trial period.
Your pricing will depend on which option you chose during the sign up process. If you started your free trial on Prime Video, you will only have the monthly option.
Regardless of where you started your free trial, the monthly subscription fee for Boomerang is $4.99.
You can save up to 33% by choosing the annual billing option which costs $39.99/year.
What To Watch On Boomerang
Fans of classic cartoons like Looney Toons, The Flintstones, Scooby Doo and Jonny Quest will love Boomerang as all their favorite cartoons are available to watch on demand and without ads.
Boomerang does offer a preview by letting you watch a good bit of shows for free without you having to sign up. Their “Saturday Morning” playlist is completely free.
With a Boomerang account though, you can watch all of your favorite characters from Bugs Bunny to Scooby Doo in TV shows and in feature length movies.
There’s a decent collection of movies which were previously made for television or released directly to video. Titles such as Tom and Jerry: A Nutcracker Tale, Scooby Doo in Where’s My Mummy? and The Man Called Flintstone are all available to watch.
Finally, there are playlists which feature collections of episodes with a theme such as Mother’s Day or Baby Mania or ‘best of’ playlists with your favorite characters. These are specially curated collections so you can enjoy everything Boomerang has to offer.
Get Your Boomerang Free Trial
Boomerang is a completely separate service from the one your TV provider carries and is meant to be a subscription service for cord-cutters.
They offer a 7 day free trial which you can get by signing up through their website or through Prime Video channels as well as downloading the app for your preferred device.
You can catch all your favorite cartoon characters like Scooby Doo, Looney Toons and The Flintstones on Boomerang and it only costs $4.99/month if you decide to continue your subscription.
