Disney To Close Disney Channel In the UK, Moving To Disney+

[Disney+] The three main UK Disney channels Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior are moving exclusively to Disney+


According to Deadline, Disney will be closing all of its' UK kids TV channels on October 1st, 2020. This include Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior.

The reason for the closures is because Disney has failed to agree a new deal pay-TV platforms Sky and Virgin Media. So, Disney have decided to pull the channels.

A Disney spokeman said that they were still committed to the channels, but from October 1st, they will be on Disney+ exclusively.

A spokesman said: "From October 1st, Disney+ will become the exclusive home for content from Disney Channel, DisneyXD and Disney Junior in the UK."

He added that the "Walt Disney Company remains committed to our kids channels business," and that the company plans to "execute distribution agreements for Disney channels in many markets where Disney+ is also available."
