In the last few months Disney/Fox have or are about to close the international linear channels because of the launch of Disney+ and Fox takeover, these include the entire group Australian kids channels. Does their linear kids channels in UK including a Sky branded Disney movie channel have the future? If Disney were to strike a new deal with Sky that includes Disney+, would Sky offer the sweetener of having a trimmed linear kids channel line up of Disney Channel and Disney Junior.

Paul, If you did a spot of research before posting your fabricated drivel you'd know the answer to your question already.

Is the source for the Australian closure of the Disney channels "safe"?

But Disney are closing down some operations for Disney+ even inside in all of Europe now

Recently, Disney operations in the Netherlands have been reduced to just a Disney Channel and a part time Disney XD,, there Disney XD 24 hours has been closed downl, as well (including in Belgium), and very recently Disney XD Italy, Disney XD Germany on Sky, and Disney Cinemagic have been closed

Some cuts are due soon in the UK as well, I can't see Sky Movies Disney surviving at all, and we might see at least Disney XD closing down

"Cuts" include a unified EMEA schedule (for the most part) of Disney XD and Disney Junior, with small exceptions

The Channel will not close down, I imagine it’s still too popular, and still makes a fair bit of cash.

I’d hope not to see Disney Channel close down, I’ve worked on both the UK and the US versions of the channel- it’s a great job.

Then again, I haven’t worked there for 8 years, retired due to a creative disagreement.

The people who worked on the US version were cash cows, greedy for money, whilst the Uk employees seemed to genuinely care about their audience, so I’d hope it’s still that way.

In India, they actually renamed Disney XD as Marvel HQ in January this year. Combined with those channel closures, it sounds like the Disney XD name is being phased out.


EMEA?
