Unlike most Disney Channel networks around the world, the channel airs very little content from the North American networks. Disney Channel India mostly focuses on local and some Japanese content as they are more popular with Indian audiences. Due to high popularity of Doraemon, it is scheduled most of the time on the channel (despite not being a Disney show) to maintain high viewership.
