Good morning. It’s Wednesday, March 5, 2014, and this is your first early morning briefing.

TODAY’S TOP NEWS

Look for a clear nod to the growing diversity of kids’ viewing experiences when Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man returns to Disney XD for season 3. "The third season is incredibly innovative in terms of format and animation technique," Cort Lane, Marvel VP animation development and partnerships, tells CynKids exclusively. "And it’s incredibly flexible from a programming and promotional standpoint." The team has been assessing questions such as, "How do we structure a series like this as a full season to air on a channel but also for audiences viewing it in SVOD? And how can we make it work in smaller chunks and for binge viewing?" Lane says. "You need a very flexible creative structure." Though no release date has been set for the season premiere, and it’s still months away, Lane confirmed it will launch with two cross-over eps with DXD’s Marvel’s Avengers Assemble and teases, "Both fans and audiences and folks in animation biz will be surprised."

MORE KIDS NEWS

The nabi tablet and accessories products will be on display at the Radio Disney Music Awards thanks to a sponsorship by nabi manufacturer Fuhu that includes a pre-show Listening Lounge open to the public free of charge and stocked with nabi headphones and other products in the portfolio. Fuhu is also sponsoring the awards show and the seven-city RDMA tour. The sponsorship comes on the heels of a major sponsorship deal with NASCAR driver Landon Cassill. 

Disney and Dish are giving peace a chance, and their renewed distribution agreement, with benefits, means for the first time Dish customers can access Disney’s authenticated live and VOD products, including WATCH Disney, Disney Channel On Demand, Disney Junior On Demand, and Disney XD On Demand.

PROGRAMMING

Nick News with Linda Ellerbee will hear stories from child refugees in the new special "Fleeing Syria: Children of War," premiering Tuesday, March 11, at 8p on Nickelodeon. The half-hour special features kids who fled Syria because of ongoing conflict to find safety at Jordan’s Camp Zaatari. "We at Nick News remain awed by the resilience of children who often suffer the worst in the human tide of the world’s refugees," says Ellerbee.

Talk about a growth spurt. The kids tablet market is bursting with an array of devices designed specifically for young handlers. Two years ago, only 8% of kids had access to a tablet at home; today that number has swelled to more than 40%. Find out how to launch or extend your brand in the kids tablet world from experts including PBS Kids Digital’s Abby Jenkins, iStoryTime’s Graham Farrar, Sesame Workshop’s Mindy Brooks, and Scholastic‘s Caroline Fraser at the CynKids’ webinar: The Exploding World of Kids Tablets on March 20.
