The Cartoon Network/Sky Pacific Situation: Update

The Consumer Council of Fiji are meeting Fiji Television representatives today regarding Sky Pacific replacing channels such as Cartoon Network and is trying to resolve the situation for Sky Pacific’s 20,000+ customers.

Statement from the CEO of the Consumer Council of Fiji, Premila Kumar. Quote from The Fiji Times:

“Going by the number of subscribers, Sky Pacific is receiving around $1million every month from its subscribers, the council will meet with the Fiji Television representatives tomorrow (today) to discuss the issues with the hope to find a solution in favour of the thousands of the Sky Pacific subscribers. There is certainly no substitute to the world renowned channels like BBC, Nat Geo Wild, Star Plus, Cartoon Network and others which were once enjoyed by both the young as well as the adult viewers.”

Fiji Television Ltd, the company that owns Sky Pacific, will make a statement after the meeting.

On Sky Pacific, Cartoon Network was replaced by its sister channel, Toonami Asia, last Sunday.

Abandoned “MallNation” Cartoon Network Project Revealed

MallNation
MallNation Characters

Yesterday, news of an abandoned Cartoon Network project was released to public by its creators Michael DeForge and Ryan Sands, the proposed show was called “MallNation” it stalled at the storyboard phase and a pilot episode was never made. Cartoon Network decided not to go ahead producing the show.

Description of MallNation from Michael DeForge’s blog:

“MallNation is about the entire student body of an elementary school getting locked inside of an abandoned shopping mall as punishment for scoring lowest on standardized testing in the country. All the cliques of the school branch off into their different storefronts – the goths take over the arcade, the popular mean girls build a tent city out of expensive textiles in the department store, etc. Episodes would feature the children squabbling over territory, exploring weird, uncharted parts of the mall, and working together to build something new and cool out of their situation.”
