Toon Disney debuts its new action/adventure block, Jetix, this Saturday, Feb. 14. Coinciding with the kick-off is the launch of Jetix Cards Live, the world’s first trading card game that is played concurrently on TV and online.
Jetix Cards Live can be played at www.jetix.tv and on ABC Family and Toon Disney each weekend during the Jetix line-up, which includes Power Rangers DinoThunder, the hit anime series Beyblade and Digimon. The online trading card game, with skill levels designed for a range of ages, was developed by the New Media and Technology team at ABC Cable Networks Group, a division of The Walt Disney Company.
Upon registering at Jetix.tv, users receive a virtual pack of 40 Jetix Cards each highlighting characters and elements of the shows. Users can then log each day to receive a booster pack of virtual cards which can be collected in a customized online album. As additional cards are collected, users can better their chance at getting a high score in the live game against the “Jetix Master,” who plays one of his cards online and one of his cards on TV. Users can also answer “Watch and Unlock" questions to unlock and play more cards from their collection.
ABC Family airs Jetix weekdays from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and weekends 7 a.m. to 12 noon ET/PT. The block airs on Toon Disney Monday through Thursday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. ET/PT and weekends from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. ET/PT.
