The ABC network in Australia has struck a deal with Hit Entertainment to air every single series of their most popular shows.
Along with Bob the Builder, Pingu and others, Thomas & Friends is one of them, with the network getting the oppourtunity to broadcast nearly 300 hours worth of Hit's shows.
Hit Entertainment's SVP of the Thomas Asian-Pacific, Antonio Huab spoke in delight while also commending Thomas.
We're thrilled with the performance to date of our series on ABC TV, including the most recent CG-animated Thomas series which enjoyed a ratings lift of 47 per cent.
We are excited to expand HIT’s presence with the addition of other new properties, including the exciting Mike the Knight set to launch later this year.
