Disney XD is a basic cable and satellite television channel owned by The Walt Disney Company in Latin America and the Caribbean. It is broadcast throughout the region into five feeds, and features animated programs and sitcoms, primarily marketed to kids and teenagers from 6 to 14. It is directly operated by Disney & ESPN Media Networks and The Walt Disney Company Latin America, which are owned by The Walt Disney Company.
The channel was launched on November 8, 1996 as Fox Kids, being the third overseas market the channel reaches at the time. On July 31, 2004, the TV network was rebranded as Jetix with new on-screen graphics and the premiere of new original shows developed by Disney, due to the acquisition of the Fox Family Worldwide franchise in July 2001, which involved the Latin American management division of the channel. In May 2009, after Toon Disney being rebranded to Disney XD in the United States, the Latin American-Disney branch confirmed the Disney XD brand will be rollout in the region replacing Jetix starting July 3, 2009 . On January 18, 2010 a Chilean feed was introduced (collectively known as the Pacific feed), which also broadcasts in Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador with the Chilean time onscreen (UTC−4/-3), pulling off the Argentinian feed that used to air in those countries since 1996 as Fox Kids.
Starting from July 2015, Disney partially implemented a new branding image on the channel's Latin American feeds as part of the "#GameOn" programming block, featuring gaming-based graphics, the premiere of new episodes and series, such as Star vs. the Forces of Evil and Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero. This branding image was based off from the 2015 US graphics, and it's currently being used on international feeds starting late-2016. Since April 2016, the programming block is phased out and Disney XD gradually implements the current graphical branding on its promos, until it fully rebrands on 1 June 2016, when the on-screen logo was later changed with the current look.
On August 2016, the channel changed its aspect ratio from fullscreen to widescreen. On June 2017, the Pacific feed stopped broadcasting as an independent feed and, instead, became a semi-timeshift channel by one hour (and a mirror feed in Summer due to Chilean DST), relying on the South feed, with Argentine ads being replaced by Chilean, Bolivian and Peruvian commercials.
- Brazil: directly intended for Brazil and broadcasts in Brazilian Portuguese.
- North: it is aimed at Colombia, Venezuela, Central America and the Dominican Republic. It uses the Colombian timezone as reference.
- Mexico: aimed directly towards Mexico. The Central timezone is used as the default for the channel.
- South: broadcasts in Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, and Bolivia. It uses the Argentine timezone as the default time on promos. It also has a mirror feed aimed at Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia, which delays TV broadcast based from the Chilean timezone (acts as a mirror feed during DST, and as a 1-hour timeshift feed during winter time).
Disney had previously launched an additional feed for the channel, being named "Disney XD Pacific" which covered Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia available since January 18, 2010, replacing the South feed which has been distributed on those countries since the channel's inception as Fox Kids. On June 2017, however, this feed shifts to a timeshift channel relying on the South feed, and thus it loses its autonomous programming schedule after 7 years.
