    Pop max is a tv channel on Sky and Freesat (and freeview in Manchester) that replaces Tiny pop +1.

    It's been hosting the 4 most popular shows on Pop using viewing figures in the first quarter of this year.

    They have shown these shows back to back over 2 weeks each.

    They have shown Totally spies, Transformers Rescue bots, LPS and now MLP.

    Edit: added an advert.

    i dunno when they added the channel back. But i see MLP is off the schedule. They still have the show on their site, so it could temporary until POP Max ends.

    I think that is the case! But it seems they are taking the lazy way of it!

    They are only showing S1 and 2 on Pop Max and nothing more!

    Showed the first half, commercial break, then back to the cold open again!

    At 5.00pm they just showed what they were going to show anyway (Rescue Bots I think).

    So, a technical fault made them air only the 1st half of the episode twice? ouch

    Mind you, i remember once CN UK made the same mistake with a Powerpuff Girls episode. It was The Rowdyruff boys episode, but after the first half, and ad break, they instead showed an old repeat involving The Amoeba Boys making everyone sick, instead of part two.

    Tiny pop are showing S6 in production order so it means they are showing last Saturdays episode! So 5 days after the US airing!

    I caught "A Hearth's Warming Tail" on Tiny Pop this morning. It was mostly great, but they butchered "Pinkie's Present". Usual reason -- removing cider references -- but taking out one line of a song ("The cider's flowing, this is living") and leaving the rest intact ruins the flow and rhythm so badly it would almost have been better to have removed the song as a whole. :(

    Disney redubbed Zootopia so that characters said "Zootropolis" etc. Hasbro could have changed "The cider's flowing" to "The juice is flowing" the same way! :D

    (NB: this is a joke. I know there's a fairly major difference between Z and MLP!)

    And that's why I choose not to watch the show on Tiny Pop. It sounds just as bad, if not worse, than when E4 aired Friends for all those years (the editing was notoriously horrendous).

    You should see 4's editing of Two Broke Girls or even The Simpsons. Whole scenes sometimes just disappear and you can't follow the plot any more.

    Yeah. It seems understandable in The Simpsons' case, as it's to remove anything that goes too far in appropriateness, but they completely destroyed the episode "The Bob Next Door", where they cut out all the scenes about
    Sideshow Bob cutting of his and Walt Wohrn's faces and switching them around
    So maybe they should just not show that episode, as it's essential to the plot.

    Boomerang did a similar thing with the Looney Tunes song, Long Eared Drifter.
    Can't say the word "Diabetes" to kids... apparently.
