    The folks over at Entertainment Rights, the company with the distribution rights to Transformers Animated, are having a hard time getting UK free-to-air company GMTV to agree to a deal between the two companies which would see Transformers Animated shown on that channel.

    You can read more about the Transformers Animated deal, which GMTV are currently stalling on, and then sign the petition which we have set up, on behald of Entertainment Rights, at PetitionOnline

    You don't have to be in the UK to sign the petition, although we strongly ask every TF fan in the UK to do so. Entertainment Rights what to show GMTV that the show has a great following, and that it would be in their interests to agree the deal as quickly as possible.

    Currently, if the deal does go through, GMTV would not be showing the cartoon until mid 2009. Entertain Rights wants the station to start showing the series this year.

    We are asking all fellow Transformers fans to help Entertainment Rights by signing the petiton at PetitionOnline.

    Thanks

    Because online petitions have a long and robust history of working.

    /You know someone had to say it.

    I'll sign the petition, but I imagine it'll do sod all to GMTV wanting the rights. But I'm open to being totally wrong...

    Yeah, pretty much what I'd have said, so QFT all round. I don't put much stock in online petitions, and don't usually waste my time with them. In this case, however, I've made an exception.
    You never know, I might even get myself up to watch it... :p

    Online petitions might not have a good history but since GMTV are already at the negotiations table the idea of the petition is to help show the interest in getting the show onto a free UK channel. So its not like they are not interest in the show, just dragging their feet

    Precisely my reasoning. If it doesn't work, no skin off my nose. If it does, more power to it. #157

    I've had e-stalkers from another fandom for quite a few years now - they've followed me all over the Internet. It's true, and it's extremely embarrassing. Just ignore them.

    What good does it do for those of us who aren't in the viewing area of said network to sign the petition? Other than falsely inflate the numbers, I mean...
