    I just saw a commercial on TV about new shows for September and Transformers Prime is one of them and these shows will start on September 5th. I'll try to find more proof and maybe record the ad when it comes back up.

    EDIT: Judging from CN's history with new shows it will mostly likely be on around 4:00PM-5:00PM

    Nice, hopefully some decent exposure will prompt Hasbro to actually release all the toys over here.

    And so another TF franchise stands to fall foul
    of CNs relationship with Bandai.

    I'll still watch online (don't have many tv channels) but good news, I hope, for exposure and toy stocks.

    (Hmmm, actually, will popularity make it harder to score the toys I desire? Ah, the joys of TFA not catching on with children...)

    CN are considered a major factor in the early end of Animated.

    Hooray! I'll definitely re-watch the episodes. Y'know, to help up the views. And at least that should give kids a reason to buy the toys.

    Same week as Thundercats starts.

    CN have stated that TC will air on Saturdays only from September 10th until "late October," then move to "A prime-time slot" which now makes sense to me: I'd hazard a guess at TF: Prime occupying that slot from now until "late October," and they'll rush through the series in a couple of months, as it's about to conclude in Canada. Then, they'll drop TC into the slot and run that there through until early 2012.

    Because I like making delusional jumps to conclusions, I'm going to assume this means all is well between Hasbro and CN and that Animated Season 3 will finally be able to see a DVD release as well as be picked up and brought back for a 4th season.

    AND DON'T ANYONE TELL ME OTHERWISE!

    :p

    I wonder if CITV will strip it sometime after it's been first run on Cartoon Network.

    However at least it's easier & cheaper to download the HD eps than it is recording HD eps of Thundercats & Transformers Prime of TV - heck the Downloads might even be clearer than the DVD and it might not even get a Blu Ray releases at all..

    Great if you've got the kit but i'm hardly going to rush out and buy an HD box just to see Strictly Come Dancing or Torchwood. as I know I'm not really that interested and you need a TV over 40" to even see much difference between ED and either HD anyway.

    Since I can't be bothered to buy a big TV until I can find one that makes games & Text & normal TV all look super good relatively close up - The one I've got is fine as all text is legible it's 1080i so it's perfectly fine for games but also low enough res than normal TV looks good ad it does not use up energy like a Jumbo jet like a big plasma might..

    So I'll probably not even bother with HD until I can get a cheap and decent OLED or I buy a PS3 (now only £199.99)

    All I know is that come the 5th the only new shows will be:

    Transformers Prime

    The Amazing World of Gumball

    Battle Force 5

    Bakugan Gundalian Invaders

    Though at least they're showing new Generator Rex?
