Official Fraggle Rock page on the Hub website, 2012.

The Hub is a cable network jointly owned by Hasbro and Discovery Communications. It launched on October 10, 2010, replacing the Discovery Kids channel. Margaret Loesch serves as The Hub's president and CEO.

In May 2010, The Hub announced that reruns of Fraggle Rock would be among the network's inaugural programming, alongside various new and classic series, including many based on Hasbro properties.[1]

The Hub should not be confused with The HUB, the former name of HIP, or Henson Independent Properties, (a third-party licensing division of The Jim Henson Company).

For San Diego Comic-Con in 2010, The Hub and The Jim Henson Company organized a small Fraggle Rock exhibit at the "The Hub TV Experience" located inside the San Diego Marriott. Karen Prell and Red Fraggle appeared at the exhibit on July 24, 2010 to promote Fraggle Rock's upcoming run on the network, with four sing-alongs of "Fraggle Rock Rock", alternating with four autograph sessions throughout the day.

The Hub also has an official Fraggle Rock webpage. A noticeable goof (at least to fans) was the fact that Junior Gorg's page did not depict Junior, but Gunge. The picture has since been replaced.

Other Henson-related broadcasts on The Hub include:

On November 27, 2010, The Hub aired a Muppet marathon of The Muppets Take Manhattan, Muppet Treasure Island, Muppets from Space and The Muppet Christmas Carol on The Hub for Thanksgiving weekend.

As of June 1, 2012, The Hub has discontinued showing Fraggle Rock, although its page on The Hub's website is still accessible.
