I can't fine Spongebob Squarepants on On Demand anymore. It has been weeks, Comcast just took it off. If you look in the Menu... Kids-Nick en espanol, you will see a few episodes of Bob Esponja, which is Spongebob Squarepants in Spanish. I watched and they're episodes dubbed in Spanish.
What's up? Did they lose the rights or did they get contacted by the Owners of Spongebob and told them to take it off because not enough people were buy the DVD's because they could just put On Demand on and let their kids watch anytime they want and not spend money on DVD's?
Nickelodeon's ratings have tanked this year. Many have speculated it's a combination of various streaming/OnDemand options that are causing people to bypass the channel. They may be pulling some of these to drive more people back to the live channel.
