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.[3] One month later, a 24-hour version was launched on UPC Netherlands, followed by other providers in the Netherlands and Flanders.[4] 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.

The 24-hours version will close on 31 July 2018. The 14-hours version time-sharing with Veronica will remain.[5]
