Disney XD is a Dutch digital and satellite television channel owned by The Walt Disney Company. It broadcasts 12 hours a day, time-sharing with Dutch TV station Veronica. There's also a 24-hours version that is available on multiple operators throughout the Netherlands and Flanders. Viewers in Wallonia and Luxembourg receive the French version of Disney XD.

All series on the channel air in Dutch, either dubbed or originally produced in that language. However, the 24-hour version of the network offers an optional English track for most programming. Dutch subtitles are most times distributed through teletekstpage 888, there is currently no DVB subtitles available.

Disney XD Netherlands used to broadcast certain shows in English subtitled in Dutch, mainly in the evening and night.

History[edit]

On 1 January 2010, the Dutch Jetix channel was rebranded as Disney XD, being the last Jetix station to be relaunched under that brand in Europe.[2] One month later, a 24-hour version was launched on UPC Netherlands, followed by other providers in the Netherlands and Flanders.[3] In 2012, Disney highly promoted the Disney XD 24-hour channel in magazines like Donald Duck and Tina under the banner Disney XD Extra. There is also extra programming added after 18:00.

In 25 March, 2015, Disney launched an HD simulcast of the 24-hour version of the channel, available at the time on KPN, XS4All and Telfort.
