  • *Dustribute the channel with dual audio channels.

Disney Channel is the Dutch edition based on the American channel of the same name, owned by the Walt Disney Company. All content is dubbed in Dutch except for the programs that are produced in the Netherlands or Flanders. English audio is also available on the operators Ziggo, Canal Digitaal, TV Vlaanderen, Caiway, Caiway Twente/Cogas, Caiway Albrandswaard, Vodafone, Proximus and Telenet. There are two different versions with local advertisements.

The channel features a mix of original sitcoms, sometimes teen drama series, animation series and original movies (presented as DCOMs). While currently not using a slogan, the tagline 'Dat moet je meemaken!' (English: 'You have got to experience this!') has been used in the past.


The channel first launched on 3 October 2009 on UPC Netherlands.[2] On 30 October 2009 it launched in Flanders on Telenet and Belgacom.[3] On 22 June 2010 it was added to analogue. In September 2011 the Playhouse Disney block became Disney Junior. On 1 September 2011 it launched on Ziggo.[4] The channel was scheduled for a release on Caiway in October 2011, but that has been cancelled.[5] In early 2012 hours were expanded and a new logo was adopted. On 16 August 2012 it launched on CanalDigitaal and TV Vlaanderen at Astra 23.5 East.[6] In July 2013 subtitled programs were moved to late night.[7] In October 2013 subtitled programs were moved to the weekend nights.[8] On 1 April 2014, Disney Channel started transmitting with dual audio channels (Dutch and Original). There are standard no Dutch subtitles, however in most cases subtitles can be activated with text page 888.[9]

Disney Channel, Disney XD 24 hours and Disney Junior became available on KPN Interactive TV and on KPN's subsidiary Telfort on 2 April 2014. However, the Disney channels are solely in Dutch dub on these two operators. It is currently unknown when the original English audio channel will become available on KPN.

From 25 March 2015 Disney Channel HD and Disney XD HD is available at KPN, XS4All and Telfort.

From 1 July 2015 Disney Channel HD, Disney XD 24 and Disney Junior become available through Caiway and Caiway Albrandswaard. However, in Albrandswaard only the SD version of Disney Channel is available.

On 2 November 2015 Disney Channel is available through KPNs web IPTV service KPN Play however it was sooner available for the Play beta testers.
