    So far, here's what I noticed while watching KidsClick:
    • After a week is played, an encore of the same week with the same shows/episode from that week is played. After the encore, a week with different episodes is played, and then an encore with that week.
    • Shows are aired in the wrong framerate. The correct framerate is only seen on their commercials/promos. Compared airings of Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, Super 4, and Miraculous Ladybug, with the promos of these shows. They play smoothly unlike the actual airings, where they're slightly choppy.

    Because the sign-on promo features Sonic X, a show they're not airing ...

    Man, from the sound of things, it looks like this block is having serious problems really early. Someone said it's obligated to run for several months, but I doubt it'll last more than that.

    That's good. I'll likely be able to catch it on Discovery Family instead of Kidsclick, which last time I checked, isn't even available in my area.

    Specifically, what I said was that it's required by the FCC to run for at least 13 weeks, just like any new syndicated show. I also mentioned that once September 30th comes around, we may know what will happen then, but that's just how I see it.

    Let's just hope before the 30th or after they decide to step up their game to try and keep the block around.

    On the facebook page they replied to someone's comment with this:

    So it looks like the app will launch on September 1st and the block will really start to get going on September 11th.

    The way the message was written is somewhat unofficial.

    This doesn't confirm anything, really. It's just one Twitter user asking if they're still going to air it. No offense.

    It's Facebook. And they say it in the comments. You need to open the post to see it.

    Plus, their Twitter page has never been updated as of late or yet.
    You really need to open that post.

    I tried to link their response but it embedded that automatically. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I've noticed the official website now has a listing for Winx Club. It seems they're swapping out Max Steel with it.

    Geez, Winx Club sure has hopped around a lot of different stations/blocks in the US.

    1. Fox (FoxBox/4KidsTV)
    2. Cartoon Network (Miguzi)
    3. The CW (The CW4Kids)
    4. Nickelodeon
    5. Nicktoons
    6. TeenNick
    7. Nick Jr.

    I feel bad when I badmouth the block, because they're obviously trying, and with Winx Club + Ladybug, you can't say that they aren't trying to also reach a female audience.

    But their scheduling errors are such a deal-killer.

    Also, I'm pretty sure it once aired on Nicktoons back in 2012 for one day.
