The Hub will provide viewers with a broad preview of sorts on Oct. 10.
On "Sneak Peak Sunday," The Hub, the joint venture between Discovery Communications and Hasbro, will offer kids and their parents a look at some of the programming they will see on the network in the months to come.
During the network's first broadcast day, viewers will get a first look at original series Family Game Night, My Little Pony Friendship is Magic and Pound Puppies, as well as the U.S. premieres of Dennis and Gnasher, The Twisted Whiskers Show, Cosmic Quantum Ray and Deltora Quest. The schedule will be rounded out by diverse slate of acquired animated and live-action programming.
On Oct. 4, viewers can log onto Hubworld.com (http://hubworld.com/) to view The Hub's regular programming schedule which debuts Monday, Oct. 11. In the months ahead, the network, which supplants Discovery Kids and will bow in front of some 60 million cable and satellite homes, will present Transformers Prime, Dan Vs., G.I. Joe Renegades, R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour: The Series, The Adventures of Chuck and Friends and Hubworld, among others.
"We're excited to give viewers a taste of what The Hub has to offer," said Margaret Loesch, President and CEO of The Hub. "With this lineup we hope to inspire, entertain and engage kids, while also bringing families together. Sneak Peek Sunday offers a unique way to share a sampling of The Hub with our new viewers."
