Other channels and services

Disney XD

Disney XD was a male-skewed children's channel which broadcasts 16 hours a day between 6:00 AM CET and 10:00 PM CET. It replaced Jetix and Toon Disney on September 12, 2009. Jetix used to end its daily broadcasts at 6:00 PM. Disney XD is funded by advertising, as was Jetix, while Toon Disney was commercial-free. It shutted down on December 31, 2020.

Disney Junior

Disney Junior is a channel aimed at preschoolers which was launched in October 2006 on the Canal Digital and Viasat satellite operators as Playhouse Disney. Later on, the channel was launched on cable operators. On Com Hem, the largest cable operator in Sweden, the channel was launched on April 2, 2007. On September 10, 2011, Playhouse Disney was rebranded as Disney Junior.


In Summer 2007, a video service called Disney Play was added, which is only available in the region. In 2012 the site was updated because of a new logo. In November 2013 the site was updated again to the same look as the Disney Channel UK's website.
