Over the past year, more and more Disney Channels have been closing around the globe, and in the United Kingdom, the Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior will all close down on October 1st.
Disney has officially announced that Disney+ will be the exclusive home of all Disney Channel content in the UK:
We’re very excited that from 1st October, Disney+ will be the new home for Disney Channel, DisneyXD and Disney Junior content in the UK. With more on-demand than ever before, Disney+ will now premiere all of the latest films, series and specials from the three Disney Channels, along with the all-time favourites from our library.
Over 4,000 episodes of Disney Channel content and 1,000 episodes of Disney Junior shows will be available on Disney+.
This follows other countries like Australia and New Zealand, which no longer have traditional live Disney Channels, so Disney+ is the only place to watch new content. This has resulted in newer content arriving much faster than in the United States, which still has the Disney Channel.
Will you miss the Disney Channel when in closes in the UK?
