Several broadcasters from different parts of the world have already brought the FTA broadcasting rights for Ben 10, including CITV in the UK, Gulli in France and GMA in the Philippines. Alongside the new Powerpuff Girls series, both shows have generated a lot of interest amongst national FTA broadcasters who are looking for new content to expand upon their current children’s programming offering.
