Disney XD is a television channel which broadcasts to the Nordic countries and the Arab world and targeting boys between 6 and 14 years old.

The channel launched on September 12, 2009 and replaced two previous channels operated by Disney; Jetix and Toon Disney.[2][3]

The new channel inherits several features from its two forerunners. The channel broadcasts between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., just like Toon Disney, but unlike Jetix, which used to end its broadcast day at 6 p.m. Disney XD is funded by advertising, as was Jetix, while Toon Disney was commercial-free.

The launch follows similar moves all over the world. Disney XD replaced Toon Disney in the United States on February 13, 2009, and on April 1, 2009, Jetix France was replaced by Disney XD France.[4][5] Most other Jetix channels are rebranded as either Disney XD or Disney Channel during the autumn of 2009. The Nordic version is unique in that it was created through the merger of two channels, instead of the rebranding of one.



Programming includes some series that were previously broadcast on Toon Disney and Jetix, but the channel's scope has been extended to also include live action series such as Aaron Stone and feature films. Series carried over from Jetix include Pokémon Battle Dimension, Galactik Football and Dinosaur King. The first program was aired on Disney XD was the The Legend of Tarzan and it showed the Disney movie Ratatouille and it aired a new episode of Phineas and Ferb and the 1st episode of season 2 of The Suite Life on Deck.


Current Shows



Much of the distribution used by the two former channels is being taken over by Disney XD. This includes the analogue frequency in YouSee's cable network, previously used by Jetix and Hallmark Channel.[6]

The channel is also available terrestrially in Denmark from November 1, 2009, via the Boxer platform.[7] Jetix was granted a license to broadcast terrestrially in Sweden in March 2008, but were yet to use it due to transmission disputes. The channel is also available in the Arab World on the Orbit Showtime platform.
