Saban Brands was an American investment firm based in Los Angeles, California focused on media, entertainment, and communications investments. Formed in 2010 by Haim Saban, Saban Capital Group owns Saban Films,[1][2] part of Univision Communications, and part of Celestial Tiger Entertainment.[3][4] Saban Brands ceased operations on 2 July 2018 as a result of the planned Hasbro Inc purchase.[5]

On May 1, 2012, Kidsco Media Ventures LLC, an affiliate of Saban Capital Group, placed a bid to acquire some of 4Kids Entertainment's assets, including the US rights to Sonic X for $10 million.[6][7]

Sonic X aired on CW Network's Vortexx Saturday morning programming from 6 October 2012 to 27 September 2014.

In 2015, the rights to Sonic X was passed from Saban Brands to Discotek Media.
