The channel was launched November 8, 1996 as Fox Kids. On July 31, 2004 it was rebranded as Jetix, part of the company of the same name, with new on-screen graphics and the premiere of new original shows developed by Disney. In late 2008, The Walt Disney Company announced that the channel would become "Disney XD". In May 2009, the Latin American Disney branch confirmed the news, and on July 3, 2009 the channel officially had a new name. On January 18, 2010 a Chilean feed was introduced (Pacific feed), which also broadcasts in Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador with the Chilean time on screen (UTC−4/-3).
