Disney XD is a Dutch free-to-air television channel owned by The Walt Disney Company. It broadcasts 14 hours a day, time-sharing with Dutch TV station Veronica. The channel used to have a pay-television 24-hours feed that was distributed throughout the Netherlands and Belgium (Flanders). However, it closed down on 31 July 2018. Viewers in Belgium (Wallonia) and Luxembourg receive Disney XD France.

All series on the channel air in Dutch, either dubbed or originally produced in that language. However, the 24-hours feed of the network used to offer an optional English audiotrack for most programming. Dutch subtitles were distributed through teletekstpage 888, as there is currently no DVB subtitle track available.

Disney XD used to broadcast certain shows in English subtitled in Dutch, mainly in the evening and night. The channel is aimed primarily to children ages 6–15.
