Disney Channel is a European-managed pay television channel owned by Disney Branded Television, a unit of the Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International division of The Walt Disney Company. It currently broadcasts in all ex-Yugoslav countries (Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, North Macedonia, Montenegro and Kosovo), Albania, Greece, the Middle East and Africa.

It originally launched on 2 April 1997 as a MENA-only channel and the replacement of the Asian version of Disney Channel, but began to roll out in other countries beginning in 2005. It previously used to cover Poland and Turkey with their respective audio tracks until 2010 and 2012 respectively, when two localized feeds were launched for those countries.
