I called up my cable provider cox, and the only way to get Boomerang is to get it in spanish WHICH PISSES ME OFF DEARLY!!! But they said something about if your TV has the option of SAP or something you might be able to get it in english, does anyone know anything about it... Also is satelite anygood?

I just found out that Boomerang has a page on their website that will fax an "I want Boomerang" doc straight to your cable company.

If it's any consolation, Boomerang is only in 9 million US homes, so most everyone has this void in their life.

I get BOOMERANG (channel 175)on DISH NETWORK. With Cartoon Network (on channel 176), it's the perfect 2 channel cartoon punch! Have to admit to being partial to the Tom & Jerry marathons!!! And since I don't have kids to share it with, I AM IN HEAVEN!!! I'm 47 and enjoy the programming.:)

Ran across your thread while Googling something. Looks like you never got a real answer. Know it's been a long time (April, duh!), but thought this might be useful if others wind up here.

SAP is an acronym for Second Audio Program.

As its' name implies, SAP is an secondary audio setting for TV (or VCR) -- This is a feature that allows audio for the blind, weather reports, traffic reports, or a foreign language to be heard instead of the normal sound from the TV (or VCR). By normal sound I mean that newer TVs have a setting, and you select the type: Stereo, Mono, etc. If your TV support SAP, then that will be one of the selections. So, look for a key/button on the TV/VCR/Remote, or, an on-screen menu, which has some label that it is for changing audio settings.

To tie this back to your original problem, the SAP function is often used by English language channels to broadcast the audio in Spanish (i.e., a Spanish-language soundtrack). The suggestion you received regarding Boomerang (SAP), which is broadcast in Spanish, is that MAYBE it simulcasts in English using the SAP function.

Now, I’m going to make a SWAG* here. I’m guessing that, instead of using the SAP simulcast function, Boomerang broadcasts its Spanish language programming on a completely separate channel. So, I doubt that they would turn around and simulcast it in English on Boomerang (SAP). It isn't included in my current cable package, so I can't test it. This opens an appeal to someone who does to check it out and post the results.

*Stupid, wild-ass guess!

Eric,

Someone above (Kenny H) mentioned Dish; we get Boomerang on Direct TV (channel 298). Tom and Jerry, The Batman, The Herculoids, and Scooby Doo, Where Are You! are just some of the shows that we watch on that channel. The channel comes with our 150 pack. It might be something to consider getting one day, if you can swing it.
