Doraemon heads to morning slot for kids on British TV

Andy has been writing for UK Anime since 2006, and was the site's editor-in-chief until August 2017.  Contrary to popular belief, Andy is not actually a robot.


We hear a lot of complaints about the lack of anime on TV (however relevant or not that argument might be in 2015), but the Asahi Shimbun newspaper's English language web site reports that at least one massive anime franchise will be reaching UK TV very soon, albeit one aimed at a younger audience.

In short, the classic series Doraemon will be hitting the UK from August 17th (next Monday at the time of writing) between 7:30 and 8AM, and airing every weekday on cable and satellite channel Boomerang:

A Japanese robot cat from the 22nd century is flying over to Britain.

The immensely popular anime "Doraemon" will make its debut in the morning on British TV on Aug. 17.

The English-dubbed version of "Doraemon" will air on weekdays between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. so children can watch it over breakfast before heading off to school.

It will be shown on Boomerang, a cable and satellite channel operated by Turner Broadcasting System Europe Ltd., according to TV Asahi Corp.

You can find out more on the official Boomerang web site. The channel is available on Sky channel 603 (with a +1 service on 618) and Virgin Media channel 730 (with a +1 service on 731).
