Disney Channel is a Portuguese basic cable and satellite television network. It broadcasts Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior originals and non-originals. It was launched in November 28, 2001 as a premium channel, and it was later added to basic packages across platforms.


Disney Channel airs live action shows, animated series, short series, Disney XD, and films.

Since July 2013, most Disney Channel and Disney XD original shows are broadcast with dual audio channels, Portuguese or English, using MPEG2 and AAC standards, respectively.

Disney Junior[edit]

Disney Junior in Disney Channel was a preschool block. It used to air every morning, but the block ended, as Disney Junior shows can only be seen on the localized version of Disney Junior. All programs targeted children aged 2–6 years.

Former/Final programming[edit]


As of October 2012, Disney Channel Portugal has disputed the leadership of cable/satellite/IPTV ratings, in terms of daily average, with Canal Hollywood, finishing second for all but one week. However, it was the channel with most shows on the top 15 along the month, ranging from five to nine shows per week.[1][2][3][4]

Disney Channel is the most watched children's channel and the 4th most watched channel in Portugal.[5]
