HUB TV NETWORK CELEBRATES INDEPENDENCE DAY
WITH SPECIAL ALL-DAY ‘JULY FOURTH HUBOOM-A-THON!’
Eleven Heroic Hours of Popular Series
“Transformers Rescue Bots,” “The Super Hero Squad Show”
And “Transformers Prime”
The Hub TV Network will celebrate Independence Day (Wednesday, July 4 8:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. ET), with a fun-filled freedom fest, the “July Fourth Huboom-A-Thon!”, featuring back-to-back marathons of episodes of “Transformers Rescue Bots,” “The Super Hero Squad Show” and “Transformers Prime.” Each episode of the half-hour animated series will celebrate themes of heroism, encouraging kids and their parents to observe the patriotic holiday together while watching fan-favorite shows on The Hub.
Additionally, the network’s website Hubworld.com is now hosting a new and engaging interactive activity, “The Transformers Prime Vector Sigma Bot Builder,” allowing fans to create their own Autobots and Decepticons by choosing from a variety of names, parts and accessories that are representative of the "Transformers Prime" style with the ability to print and share their user-generated creations.
Facebook followers will also be able to extend their viewing experience online through a distinctive new application, “The Transformers Prime Cybertronian Personality Matrix,” which gives visitors to the popular social media destination an opportunity to determine their Autobot/Decepticon classification based on responses to a series of 10 questions. The new app also launches June 18 and will allow Facebook users to post the final results to their own profile. The Facebook quiz sets up the Hubworld ‘Bot Builder’ game as it suggests which class and type of bot to build.
