In 2006, Decode Entertainment merged with Halifax Film Company; the result of that merger was the company DHX Media.[1]

Decode then became a subsidiary company of DHX, gaining distribution rights to Halifax Film shows in the process. In 2010, all DHX companies including Decode were all rebranded under the DHX name, with distribution transferred to DHX proper. In 2011, DHX Media ceased producing content at the ex-Decode offices. DHX acquired Epitome Pictures in 2014, which assumed the name of DHX Studios in 2016, but this company had no relation outside the name.
