Disney Channel (formerly known as The Disney Channel from 1996 to 1997) is a Southeast Asian pay television channel owned 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, 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 do not carry the channel, due to either a lack of capacity or government restrictions.

Unlike most Disney Channels around the world, the Asia channel mainly airs animated content, with live action shows only airing during late nights outside of Singapore.


Disney Channel Asia was launched in January 2000 with a single video feed and two audio tracks in English and Mandarin, as well as subtitles in Mandarin too. The channel became available in Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei and the Philippines. On 1 June 2002, the channel was launched in the South Korean market with a Korean language feed.[1] Over the first six months of 2005, Disney Channel Asia, along with sister channel Playhouse Disney (now Disney Junior) was launched in Vietnam, Palau and Thailand. It finished off with a launch of both in Cambodia, its 11th market, with Cambodia Entertainment Production Co. Ltd. as distributor.[2]

HD channel

On May 1, 2015, The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia launched a high-definition simulcast feed of Disney Channel in the Philippines, available on SkyCable and Destiny Cable distributed by Asian Cable Communications, Inc. (ACCION) in that country. Just like its SD counterpart, the HD simulcast of the channel airs the same shows shown in the SD feed.

Presentation and Logos

With the launch of the channel in 1996, Disney Channel Asia adopted the UK network's presentation designed by Lambie-Nairn. It then used the splat logo in 1997 with the opening of Disney Channel France. Later in 1999, Disney Channel Asia began to use the "Circles" presentation package until July 2003, when the US logo (and design package by CA Square) as the "Bounce" graphics, it became the channel's on-air presentation format, then later rebranded using the "Ribbons" looks from 2007 until 2011. Two more redesigns were made in 2012, then in 2014 with the current wordmark logo.

Disney Channel Asia started using parts of the US rebrand from 1 December 2017, and rebranded fully on 1 January 2018 at 6am.
