Digimon Adventure was broadcast with English dubbing in the United States on Fox Kids and in Canada on YTV.[4][5] The series premiered on August 14, 1999, in the United States.[6] Overall licensing of English-language material of the series was managed by Saban Entertainment,[6] which was eventually acquired by The Walt Disney Company. Digimon Adventure has been compiled into DVD box sets by Bandai Visual and Happinet in Japan and by Cinedigm in North America. On August 1, 2013, the show became available for streaming in both its English and Japanese versions on Netflix in North America.[7]
