Qubo is also an entire channel, and piggybacks off Ion Television to appear in most areas. They'll be fine.

TV by the Numbers has posted a press release by NBC announcing a new Saturday morning preschool block called "NBC kids" produced by PBS Kids Sprout (which NBC/Comcast owns part of) beginning July 7th.
From the press release:
I wonder what this means for Qubo.UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – March 28, 2012 -- NBC will launch NBC Kids, a new Saturday morning programming block designed specifically to address the developmental needs of preschool-aged children, premiering on Saturday, July 7. Programmed by the kids experts at Sprout, the nation's first 24-hour preschool television channel, this new three-hour block will feature educational series that promote active, healthy lifestyles for younger children.
NBC Kids will include the U.S. broadcast premieres of quality, preschool series “The Wiggles," Sprout’s “Noodle & Doodle,” Jim Henson's “Pajanimals,” “Poppy Cat," “Justin Time,” as well as the popular “LazyTown,” designed to encourage healthy eating and exercise.
What would "Justin Time" be like?
Probably the adventures of some kid named Justin.
And yeah, I like qubo too...when my antenna can pick it up, that is!

College football, basketball, the NFL, the NBA, and MLB. I may not be an expert, but these sports always keep me fascinated if the game is good!

Easily achieved with The Hub's library. And it would have given a lot more kids the opportunity to see My Little Pony if nothing else.Originally Posted by bigddan11
Strawberry Short Cake, an hour of My Little Pony, an hour of Pound Puppies and Transformers Recsue Bots. They all count as e/i. Plus they have Carebears coming soon and that's bound to be e/i as well.
I'm not sure why NBC Universal would go through all of the trouble to lease the block to the Hub when they have programming readily available already. They're part owner of PBS Kids Sprout, which is why the new block makes sense. Comcast owned a piece of PBS Sprout prior to acquiring NBC Universal while Qubo was partly owned by NBC Universal. It appears that parent company Comcast has decided to focus on its own branding (it helped launch PBS Sprout) rather than a brand that they acquired.
I'm currently piecing together complete scheduling archives of programming blocks. I am in need of info for: Fox Kids, CBS Kidshow, Toonami, One Saturday Morning, DIC Kids Network, Disney Afternoon, JETIX on ABC Family, JETIX on Toon Disney, SNICK, and Adult Swim. Please send me a PM if you can provide airdates for shows or have large video collections from these lineups.
I'm surprised that NBC is getting 'Lazytown'. That will mean that the network will be full of nothing but reruns. As for the other shows, they better have new episodes or this block will be a bigger dud than the corpse that still lives among us with Qubo.
I don't need a signature. I'm too cool for one. LOL
Look for me on deviantART, Newgrounds (MutterMoron666), and YouTube!

Wait, isn't the 2004 LazyTown series owned by Nick/Paramount?
