    The Hub can't die Friendship is Magic is on there!!!!

    I'm pretty sure the Hub just needs time to grow.

    I don't see anything in there about ratings being low. Give the Hub time - it will perform better as it goes along. It's a pretty popular channel in my house, aside from
    Transformers.

    Meh, I doubt it will be missed. A network based on selling toys? I'm surprised it lasted this long.

    Seems like because of these constant breaks (no offence Hasbro/Hub) for TFP are making The Hub a bit unpopular for some of the fans. Not that I blame them though. I can understand that they are still working on the series, though I wished they should've saved themselves the effort and not air it right now and continue working on it for the next year or so just to save the fans the pain of rage.

    I highly doubt the breaks inbetween runs of Transformers Prime is the only reason they're having problems....

    Eagc7, I thought you didn't care about the Hub. Had a change of heart about it after all? Hence why you're caring for it with your post? :) 

    We'll pull back eventually.

    Seeing as The Hub has gone to some level above the basic cable package on my service(Comcast). I definitely am not contributing to ratings anymore because I can't watch any shows. It doesn't make sense to me to have a new channel unavailable to the largest customer base, but what do I know?

    If the channel was more accessible to people like nick and Cartoon Network are, I could see it drawing in more folks.

    As of now I do all my watching online because I can't get the Hub without some dumb cable service package that my college won't provide. It's a pain in the rear to find on my home cable since the channel numbers don't make sense anymore.

    Hopefully this next movie dumps more cash Hasbro's way and they can pour more into it if things start going south.

    Hub ratings are low, but according to numbers, they are still four times bigger than Discovery Kids ratings. Which means Discovery is actualy very pleased at the numbers, so I doubt we'll have any problems soon.

    The Hub getting the axe is the one thing that makes me concerned about the future of Transformers Prime.

    Why? Hub is the Hasbro/Discovery venture, sure.

    But who produces TF: Prime is HASBRO STUDIOS, owned solely by Hasbro as far as I can tell. It would be just a matter of finding new network if it goes down, and considering the show got nominated for 6 emmy awards, it would be very hard.

    I'm surprised they're not doing a special event thing that ties in with the movie in the next two weeks.
