- Disney Channel and Disney XD have secured the FREE and PAY TV rights for Germany, Austria and Switzerland for seasons I and II
- Disney XD have secured the PAY TV rights for the UK and Eire, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Iceland for season I with an option for season II
- Disney XD has acquired Season II of the property in the USA
Allen Bohbot, CEO of 41e stated:
We are genuinely excited for this broadcast exposure and expansion of our relationship with Disney in Germany and we know that the new Disney Free to Air channel will quickly become the kids’ market leader. We are thrilled that Disney XD will join the PAC-MAN family in the UK and Eire as well as the Nordic countries and last but no means least, Disney XD has commissioned season II in the USA meaning that all noted Disney outlets now have access to seasons I and II.
