Disney XD is a children's channel thatbroadcasts 16 hours a day, between 6:00 AM and 10:00 PM. It replaced Jetix and Toon Disney on September 12, 2009. Jetix used to end its broadcast daily at 6:00 PM. Disney XD is funded by advertising, as was Jetix, while Toon Disney was commercial-free.
Much of the distribution used by the two former channels is taken over by Disney XD. This includes the analogue frequency in YouSee's cable network, previously used by Jetix and Hallmark Channel. The channel is also available terrestrially in Denmark from November 1, 2009, via the Boxer platform. Jetix was granted a license to broadcast terrestrially in Sweden in March 2008, but were yet to use it due to transmission disputes.
Programming includes some series that were previously broadcast on Toon Disney and Jetix, but the channel's scope has been extended to also include live-action series such as Aaron Stone and feature films. Series carried over from Jetix include Pokémon Battle Dimension, Galactik Football and Dinosaur King. The first program aired on Disney XD was The Legend of Tarzan. The first movie aired was Ratatouille. Also, series from Disney Channel are aired.
Movies are usually shown on weekends, although there have been a few exceptions. They include original movies, Walt Disney Pictures films, and local films.
