Television broadcasts

In June 2018, premium service Epix picked up broadcasting rights for the film, and since then, has aired it on itself and on sister channels Epix 2 and Epix Hits. It stayed on those channels for almost 2 years, before moving to Universal Kids, after The Star, Coco, and Ferdinand all moved to basic cable networks like FX, Disney Channel, and Freeform, and at the same time when Peter Rabbit also premiered on FX.
