White Ark Channel is a television network owned and operated by PCast Broadcasting, a subsidiary of Pyro Enterprises. Inspired by the likes of Cartoon Network and Disney XD, White Ark is designed primarily as an entertainment channel, specializing in cartoons developed by various writers.
White Ark was first conceived by Pyrostar (t∣b∣c) during a discussion about the current state of the cartoon industry, and its reliance on reboots of older shows as well as low quality original ones (most notably live-action shows for the latter). This lead to the idea of creating an original TV network, built around avoiding those disliked concepts in modern cartoons and allowing writers to broadcast shows of their own.
The channel first went on the air on September 12th, 2016, announcing its first show, Cat's Meow. On the same day, Lone Planet Productions announced that they would be making shows for the channel to tie into their various projects.

- The name White Ark comes from Japanese mythology, where it is said that a white ship will come to save certain members of the human race from the apocalypse.
- This is likely a jab at the cartoon industry and promotes the message that it is trying to "save" it.
