In other deal news we have a pretty big one with confirmation that Paramount has partnered with Netflix to for a multi picture film deal. There are not a lot of details, but the article from the Observer states the following:
While no specific properties were mentioned on the call, the deal would seem to provide Netflix with access to valuable IP such as Transformers, Star Trek, Cloverfield and more.
This is because Paramount does own the license for Transformers films and if anyone is curious about what that entails legally, we unearthed Viacom's legal agreement/ownerhip details. You can click here to see it.

In “Transformers: Cyberverse” Bumblebee is on a critical mission where lives are at stake. Only, he can’t remember what it is. It’s a good thing his best friend Windblade has found him to help repair his damaged memory chips. With each recovered memory, Bumblebee rediscovers his past adventures on Cybertron before coming to Earth. He relives fun moments when he played Cybertronian sports with his friends, and even tragic ones that would change his life. His past will shape him into becoming the hero we know today. As each memory is repaired, another clue comes to light that will lead them both to complete their shared mission to save their friends and Earth… however, the Decepticons are hot on their heels and time is running out.

They'll fit in new things. Like new episodes of Teen Titans GO. And more new episodes of Teen Titans GO. And even more new episodes of Teen Titans GO. There is nothing but Teen Titans GO.
In all seriousness, I think Cartoon Network should create a second channel for nothing but Teen Titans GO, and then go back to making stuff that actually has effort put into it.

We're just making fun of CN and their obsession/fetish for showing TTG as much as possible.
Which should be done whenever the opportunity presents itself.
