Disney Channel Asia (formerly known as The Disney Channel from 1996 to 1997) is a basic cable and satellite television channel that broadcasts in Southeast Asia as the flagship property of owner Disney Channels Worldwide unit of the United States-based Disney–ABC Television Group, managed by The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia. Most of its original programming is aimed at pre-teens and adolescents ages 10–16 while its Disney Junior programs are targeted at younger children ages 3–9, although certain programs are aimed at audiences of all ages. The channel's programming consists of original first-run television series, theatrically-released and original made-for-cable movies and select other third-party programming. Some countries—with either a lack of capacity or due to government restrictions—do not carry the network.


Disney Channel Asia was launched in January 2000 with a multi-language feed with an English main feed and dubbing and subtitling Mandarin. The channel became available in Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei and the Philippines. On June 1, 2002, the channel was launched in the South Korea market with a Korea language feed.[1] Over the first six months of 2005, Disney Channel Asia along with sister channel Playhouse Disney (now Disney Junior) launched in Vietnam, Palau and Thailand and finishing off with a launch of both in Cambodia, its 11th market, with Cambodia Entertainment Production Co. Ltd. as distributor.[2]


  • Asia: Main feed available in Indonesia, Thailand, Papua New Guinea, Vietnam, Palau and Cambodia.
  • Singapore: Same schedule with Asia feed plus new episodes of live-action shows and local advertisements.
  • Malaysia: Same schedule with Asia feed plus local advertisements. Also available in Brunei.
  • Philippines: Same schedule with Asia feed plus local advertisements.
  • Hong Kong: Own schedule with local advertisements. Separated from Asia feed on 2 April 2004. Broadcast in English and Cantonese.
  • Taiwan: Own schedule with local advertisements. It is the first overseas feed of Disney Channel, began operations in March 1995.[2] Broadcast in Taiwanese Mandarin.


Some programming is edited due to local culture and mores to be acceptable to various audiences such as Muslim with removal of romantic plotlines, violence, profanity, and some suggestive dialogue. Some scenes with items that are inappropriate for children (such as wine) were pixelated.[citation needed]
