Girls-targeted on-demand network Kabillion Girls Rule announced it will carry the original 52-episode My Little Pony animated series from Hasbro, effective immediately. Additionally, the Kabillion network has secured on-demand rights to the first 26 episodes of Transformers Animated, which will begin airing later this month.
The new content arrives on the heels of a recently finalized agreement with Cox Communications — the third-largest cable company in the US — to add Kabillion and Kabillion Girls Rule VOD networks to all Cox Advanced TV subscriber offerings nationwide. The Cox deal, already in action, brings Kabillion’s US reach to over 57 million homes.
Kabillion is currently the only independently-owned company ranked among the US Top 10 Kids Free On Demand TV Networks. President David Di Lorenzo announced the Hasbro show deals in LA on Monday.
My Little Pony follows the adventures of Clover Bloom, Posey, Surprise, Ribbonglory and their friends in mystical Ponyland. The Ponies make their home in Paradise Estate, living a peaceful life filled with song and games. However, not all of the creatures of Ponyland are so peaceful, and the My Little Pony crew often find themselves threatened by witches, trolls, goblins and all the other beasts.
