    He-Man to be seen on Qubo Channel

    He-Man, She-Ra, Bravestarr, and Ghostbusters will be joining the Qubo Channel.

    NEW YORK, NY - May 11, 2010 -- Qubo Channel announces the launch of twelve new animated and live action series with several U.S. premieres that will roll out on the network beginning this summer through the fall of 2010.

In addition, beginning this fall season, Qubo will launch a classic weekend animation block featuring the newly acquired "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe," "She-Ra, Princess of Power," "Brave Starr" and the animated "Ghostbusters." And to round out the schedule, Qubo will debut "Animal Exploration with Jarrod Miller" in the Fall of 2010.

    I'm not real familiar with that channel. I don't think I have it, but it sounds like they show stuff online as well.

    Whoah, cool! I don't think I have that channel either, but I know I've got ION (never watch it, don't really know what it is), and of course NBC. Hopefully NBC will show enough on Saturday mornings to include He-Man and She-Ra.

    If you have a digital receiver or cable, you should have Qubo. It's basically a side channel to ION. For example, locally 7-1 is regular ABC (7), while 7-3 is local ABC weather.

    While the "Ghostbusters" mentioned is likely the Filmation version, I wish it was the Real Ghostbusters.

    Of course, let's not expect NBC to air He-Man, She-Ra or any of the other classic shows within their saturday Qubo block. According to whoever set up the present day, party pooper atmosphere for saturday morning television, the classic shows wouldn't be "educational" enough even though He-Man and She-Ra HAVE morals built into EVERY SINGLE EPISODE.



    Now, if NBC could do it, I'd actually get up and watch the classic shows but I'm not going to hold my breath.

    To see if you get Qubo Channel, you can go to qubo.com and type in your zip code. If you don't, you can call 877-978-2688 to ask your local provider to carry it! We are really excited about our new Night Owl block and plan to add more great classic shows to it soon!

    He-man on TV

    Not sure if this should go here but.....
    I was going through this weeks TV line up to make sure I have everything set to record when I saw that Bright House Cable Company has a channel (at least in the tampa, fl area) called 8 Prime that is showing not only He-man but She-ra, Fat Albert, Bravestarr, Ghostbusters, and the Archies Saturday morning from 8-11am. If you get this channel this will be a treat. I have it set to record already. Hopefully this means a serious return to TV for the Original show YEEEAAAHHHH.
    Does this loin cloth make my butt look big?

    while i was initially excited to learn that this channel was showing he-man, ghostbusters etc, they seem to only show about 10 episodes for each show. the shows have been airing for about 3 weeks now, but the episodes are constant repeats. pretty stupid.

    MOTU. She-Ra on QUBO

    Not sure how late I am on finding this out, but that's because I've been so busy working the past few months to really watch TV. I was up at 2 am with my son this morning and saw a commercial for the original Masters of the Universe, She-Ra and Bravestarr on QUBO. They've got some block they're referring to as Night Owl (I guess like Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, just not vulgar). I thought that was fantastic, even though I own all 3 series on DVD, it's nice to see it back on tv. QUBO is a digital channel that shows children's cartoons 24 hours a day for those that have never heard of it.

    Here's a commercial someone uploaded to youtube.

    Yeah, I noticed this a few weeks ago but totally forgot to post it here on the .Org. It's great to see these cartoons back on the air again!

    Yep. I discovered Qubo Night Owl last autumn. I started searching online for the original toys (that I never had as a kid) and found the new MOTU Classics line. I quickly found out that it was too late in the year to sign up for a subscription and everything was "sold out". So, I turned to the online auction sites to start my collection and found He-Man.org along the way.

    All because of Qubo.

    i emailed QUBO to ask them about he-man, she-ra, bravestarr and ghostbusters and why they kept airing the same episodes over and over. i figured they didn't have access to the complete library for each show. turns out i was right.

    "Thank you for reaching out to Qubo Channel and for being a loyal fan of the network. We value your feedback and our Programming Department will keep it in mind as they continue to build a network that everyone can enjoy. We hope that you and your family continue to watch our quality programming line-up and enjoy all of our shows as much as we do. We have access right now to 26 episodes of each of those series and are working hard to keep Qubo Night Owl fun and fresh for our fans."

    while it's cool to have these shows on tv again, it's really lame seeing the same episodes over and over. i don't even bother DVR'ing them anymore.

    How're they going to keep it fun and fresh when they do nothing but show repeats? It's like my local MY Network shows about the same dozen or so episodes of "South Park" over and over again. I JUST discovered this whole "Night Owl" thing, but I already have the episodes on DVD. It's kinda redundant for me, but it's great to see them airing on TV again. Besides, I take pride in the fact that I've given my son a choice between He-Man and Bob the Builder DVDs to watch and He-Man's beaten Bob. That's really saying something with him!

    Original He-man back on tv in the U.S.!

    Hi guys and gals! I am new to the boards. Did a search on the boards about this, didn't see it so i thought i would say it anyway. The original He-man, She-ra, Bravestar, and Filmation Ghostbusters airs every night starting at 11pm on my local qubo station! Its 48.2 in my area. They call it qubo night owl! Enjoy!

    I'm sure there's a thread out there somewhere because I've seen it mentioned here before.

    Anyway, regarding the vintage Filmation cartoon, MOTU airs at 11 P.M. - 12 A.M. central here in my area on channel 68-2, 7 days a week. It's nice to a degree though, and by that I mean they repeatedly only show the first 20 episodes constantly. I sent them a message before regarding this, wondering why they show the same 20 episodes when there's 130 unique episodes.

    Regards,
    Victor P.

    P.S. Welcome to the forums by the way !

    Here in NC, qubo airs He-Man from 12:00 am- 1:00, She-Ra from 1:00 - 2:00, and Bravestarr from 2:00 to 3:00. I haven't been watching it enough to notice which episodes they show, but I did read somewhere that they only licensed 25 episodes from each series. Don't know how accurate that is though.

    Yes I emailed Qubo quite a while back regarding them showing the same episodes over and over and they said they only got 25 episodes each. Kinda lame...

    Yeah, every Friday/Saturday they have Qubo Night Owl and they show He-Man, She-Ra and Bravestarr. Not bad late night watching while having a late night taco or two. I always find it funny that all of the commericals on Qubo are for shows on Qubo. The occasional Gerber Grow Up Plan commercial is the only like mainstream one.
