The DHX name derives itself with the combination of the Decode name and the Halifax name from the 2006 merger. Within the end of 2007 and the beginning of 2008, DHX started acquiring several Canadian companies. On December 25, 2007, DHX acquired Studio B Productions, then Bulldog Interactive Fitness on March 25, 2008. On September 8, 2010, all related subsidiaries were rebranded under the DHX label, which then led to the acquisition of the original incarnation of WildBrain on September 14, 2010.
On August 20, 2012, DHX announced that they would acquire Cookie Jar Entertainment for $111 million. This deal made DHX the world's largest independent owner of children's television. The acquisition closed on October 22, 2012, and the two companies merged.
On November 28, 2013, the company announced that they would acquire four kid-oriented television channels from the former Astral Media for $170 million. The acquisition included Family, the English and French-language versions of Disney Junior, and Disney XD. Each network was being sold as part of Bell Media's 2013 acquisition of Astral Media. The purchase of the four networks marked DHX's first foray into TV broadcasting. Five months after acquiring the four networks, DHX acquired Epitome Pictures.
In September 2019, DHX changed its name to WildBrain, taking on the name of one of its acquired studios.
