Cartoon Network Russia and Southeastern Europe is a pay-television kids channel that was launched on 1 October 2009, replacing the Pan-European feed of Cartoon Network. It is available in Russian, Bulgarian and English. Both feeds are the same, except for local advertisements. The Russian website launched in October 2010. Cartoon Network doesn't have its own English site, but uses the Pan-European Cartoon Network's site. On 26 November 2010 the channel changed its look and logo. In March 2011 the CIS feed was 24 hours. On 1 January 2014 all feeds of the channels became 24 hours.
