Ben 10 Now Airing On 9Go! In Australia And TVNZ 2 In New Zealand

One of Cartoon Network’s new shows is now airing on free-to-air television in Australia and New Zealand. From Saturday 15th April, Ben 10 has been airing as part of 9Go!’s Kids WB programming block in Australia. In New Zealand, the new Ben 10 series premiered on Wednesday 12th April on state-owned broadcaster TVNZ 2. Ben 10 is airing on weekdays on both 9Go! and TVNZ 2. The free-to-air broadcasting rights for Ben 10 expands on the current SVOD deal with Stan in Australia as well as pay-tv providers Foxtel and Fetch in Australia and Sky in New Zealand, which distribute the Cartoon Network Australia TV channel to their subscribers. Viewers can also watch episodes of Ben 10 through the Cartoon Network Watch and Play app.

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.

Cartoon Network won “2017 Action Toy of the Year” for its new Ben 10 Rust Bucket RV toy at the annual Toy Fair Gala Dinner in Melbourne last month. The new Ben 10 toy range is predicted to be a huge favourite for boys this year.
