    I Was Doing a Little Search on the Wikipedia and Google, And i Discovered that the UK And Canada Ver of Discovery Kids are Gone and Re-branded

    Canada Version was Re-branded Into Nickelodeon
    and The UK Version Was Re-branded into Discovery Turbo

    So it Makes me Wonder That the UK And canadians TF Fans Will Not get to See The Hub.

    What ya think?

    I think it would be surprising if Hasbro ignored large markets like Canada and the UK, though with differences in broadcast laws it could take a long time for them to adapt the Hub for broadcast in those countries.

    We/They might not get the Hub, though some shows like GI Joe and TF: Prime didn't find their way onto YTV or something.

    No word on the Hub coming to the UK yet - hopefully Prime will be licensed out to a different UK channel in the way Animated was.

    well hasbro seem to ignore the UK transformers fan base with the toys so I don't see why they'd change now

    It was on Nicktoons, they way they aired it we got most of season 3 before anywhere else in the world

    I only have Virgin Media, not Sky. Can I still get Nicktoons? More to the point, can I get any channel that will be showing TF: Prime?

    Haha! That's how I felt too. I gave up in the end and just watched the bulk of it on Youtube. Probably end up doing the same with Prime. I really can't imagine Hasbro giving any of it a big push over here. It's not like they tried much with Animated in, well, any of the media for that line in the UK.
