In preparation for the debut of The Hub on 10-10-10, Discovery Communications has put up a select sampling of programming On Demand. It has been confirmed to appear on On Demand menus from Comcast in California to Charter in Wisconsin. Currently, there are no listings yet for Transformers Prime or G1 in this reporters listings. We at Seibertron.com do think it is worth looking at your On Demand service though. Firstly, it's probably important to see if The Hub On Demand is even offered on your satellite or cable provider. Secondly, there is a chance that if you do get it, you may have different listings of what is available.
The countdown has begun! We are now 10 days out from 10.10.10, and The HUB has updated their website by posting their initial TV schedule. Which reveals the first five days of programming. Unfortunately, Transformers: Prime is not on said schedule.(Boo!) HoweverTransformers: Generation 1 is, and will begin airing October 12th.(Yay!) Hopefully Transformers: Prime won't be too far behind, but we can all at least enjoy some old-school G1 awesomeness in the meantime.
TF @ The Moon have gotten hold of another Trademark Application from Hasbro to use the trademark "TRANSFORMERS ONE". The trademark is categorized for entertainment services, so it is obviously attached to the media part of the Transformers brand. Even still, one has to wonder what is in store for us in the near future. To view the entire application, click here and make sure to post your speculations down below.
We will let you know when we find out more on Transformers One, so make sure to keep it at Seibertron.com.
