It'd be nice if TF: Prime episodes were put up online for free like the Clone Wars episodes are on SW.com.

It seems really weird to me that they're launching the new channel with little to no fanfare. By this I mean they're barely advertising it (I watch a lot of TV, I haven't really noticed anything).

Beyond that, they're not even rolling out their biggest two shows (TF: Prime and G.I.Joe: Renegades...as if you didn't know) at the launch to help create buzz for the channel!

I guess this is why they were hiring a new PR guy. The old one sucked!

I have seen a few commercials about it (I have 2 young sons, so I watch a bit of kids TV), and they are announcing it right here! I have to bet there is the same Press Release thread in the Joe forums, and, assuming they exist, the MLP, tonka, etc. sites. I'm sure there will be ads in parents and other magazines this month too.

Ha fraggle rock use to watch that when i was a kid. What happened to Beast Wars & the original GIJOE? Just looked over the site and didnt see them listed. I hope Renegades is good, with the suckfest thats gonna be Prime i need something to fill in the gap. And how do we find out what channel its going to be? Google our cable provider & the hub?
