Saban’s boy-skewing Vortexx block, which launched last August, currently airs in the US on Saturday mornings from 7 a.m. to noon on The CW broadcast network. It is also accessible at

Power Rangers Lost Galaxy and Sonic X will both debut in June on Kabillion’s Vortexx VOD channel and Dragon Ball Z Kai will join in July. Additional programming block announcements will follow suit.

The Vortexx TV programming block currently airs in 115 million homes. Its new on-demand affiliate will benefit from Kabillion’s reach of 40 million US households.
