Toei Animation has licensed the anime series Dragon Ball Super to ABC ME in Australia.
This deal between Toei Animation and ABC Australia marks the first time that Dragon Ball Super will be available in Australia on linear television. It previously had been available to local viewers exclusively through online streaming services Crunchyroll and AnimeLab, and on DVD through Madman.
Per the agreement, Dragon Ball Super began airing on ABC ME November 3. Episodes will also be available via the ABC ME app.
“We are excited to bring Dragon Ball Super on television to our extensive Australian fanbase,” said Masayuki Endo, the president of Toei Animation. “The development is just the latest in a whirlwind year for Dragon Ball Super. The series has expanded its reach into multiple new territories around the world, while Dragon Ball as a whole continues to be one of the world’s most recognizable entertainment brands. We look forward to embarking on a successful relationship with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and maintaining our international momentum.”
