    I noticed the highlights said who to contact for questions, so I sent him and e-mail and he wrote back saying that they're still determining a premiere date and that he'll let me know when that decision has been made. The schedule is still showing it, but I'm beginning to think it just hasn't been updated.

    So, to be clear, they do have it, they're just not sure when to premiere it? Well okay then. At least we have KidsClick.

    Oh I just want to let you know that Angry Birds Toons did used to air on Teletoon back in 2013 here, both English and French feeds. But nowadays since January 2017, they air them on Radio-Canada.

    On one hand, it's good to see them change the promo. On the other hand, it's going to last less than a month lol. Were RoboCop's ratings that bad (not like they helped with the constant repeats) they couldn't wait another month to swap it out? lol

    I think they could've waited until all the schedule changes were done, as we do have "Winx Club" coming on 09 October. That's the most recent schedule change, so the date of this promo will show quite quickly.

    So it looks like Sinclair is going old school with local promotion. Some of the affiliates will have KidsClick branded hubs at events where kids can enter drawing/colouring contests to have their stuff wind up on the air, win prizes and take photos with mascots.




    FWIW, I actually think that's really cool of them to do that. The bigger markets get local tour events from the cable channels, but for the smaller cities this is a neat way of doing community outreach. Very height of SATAM-esque.

    And yes, it looks like this local news cast just yanked images from Toonbarn lol.

    Apparently Zak Storm didn't air on Discovery Family this weekend? lol

    They're testing out their streaming capabilities: https://beta.kidsclicktv.com/

    There seems to be a anti-adblock that isn't circumvented, yet. Also, the interface for the site still looks slightly off.

    Just tested it in Waterfox with the adblock disabled, but the videos have DRM, as it did give me a dialog box about playing DRM-ridden videos being disabled on my Waterfox build.

    Based on ThisTV's schedule, tomorrow will be a repeat of today ... and so will next weekend. New episodes on the 14th with the 15th looking like another rerun. Seems like the weekend lineup is doing 1 day of premieres, followed by three consecutive re-runs ...

    Oh yeah, Winx Club is also listed as starting at episode 1 with 4Kids dub titles. I don't know how accurate that'll be, but I guess we'll have to see.

    Also, this is like the fifth (and presumably the sixth tomorrow) time they've run the first part of Team Hot Wheels: The Skills to Thrill lol.

    Sounds like someone at Sinclair Broadcasting only programs the Weekend shows for Saturday, and has the Saturday schedule repeat Sunday. I think it might have to do with their shows having too little episodes to run over those two days and have new episodes without blowing through a show quickly.

    From the promos, it sounds like they are going to air the 4Kids dub of Winx Club lol.

    Now the question remains how'd they get the 4kids dub of "Winx Club"?
