Disney Channel is a European managed digital cable and satellite channel owned by the European branch of The Walt Disney Company, broadcasting in the Balkans, Greece, the Middle East and Africa.

It previously used to cover Poland and Turkey with their respective audio tracks until 2010 and 2012 respectively, when two localised feeds were launched for those countries.

History

The broadcast of Playhouse Disney ceased on 1 June 2011 with the launch of Disney Junior as a separate channel.[1] Disney XD was also launched in 2011. The station adopted a new logo from Disney Channel in the US, accompanied by the introduction of the current logo in 2011. In South Africa, on June 2014 Multichoice was fined R5000 for failing to provide a warning before airing an advertisement for the fantasy drama Wolfblood, which contained scenes of horror, on Disney XD on the morning of 31 December 2013.[2]

The channel adopted a new logo and underwent a brand design on 21 July 2014.[3]
