Reading up on some things.
Looks like by the end of this year, the current DISNEY channels Disney XD and Disney Jr, their license with Disney is OVER and will be rebrading an FAMILY channels again.
BUT... it appears that CORUS Entertainment will be picking it up.
I know that rogers 'can't comment on things which have not been announced' sort of thing 😛
BUT if any rogers person does get any information on this that they are able to share when it becomes available.. will rogers be picking up the channels.. in what packages, etc. it would be greatly appreciated 🙂
Disney Jr is a big channel in our household for my son 🙂
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
Currently, we're in discussions with Corus Entertainment to launch Disney Channel. As these discussions are still ongoing, we're unable to launch the service on September 1, 2015.
You can still enjoy select Disney programs through Family Channel until December 31, however, Disney Channel will be the new home for programs that you previously found on Family Channel
Customers can check updates through rogers.com for more information on this.
Hey @Gdkitty !
I loved Disney as a kid, so I understand the importance in this for you and many others families.
At this time we don’t have any information about this topic. We haven’t made any changes to our offerings related to Disney content.
If any changes are made, I will be sure to share with the Community!
From what i have further read.. doesnt look like the stuff on the CURRENT one will be disapearing instantly on the 1st to the new channel.. there is a 1-2 month sort of period where they will still have stuff.
HOPEFULLY by then rogers will have the new one.
Disney channel is a MAJOR staple with my son in our house
There is a discussion on the Disney Channel Canada Facebook page with the general consensus that Rogers won't be carrying Disney Channel Canada https://www.facebook.com/disneychannelcanada/timeline?ref=page_internal&__nodl&_rdr
Nothing has been announced from Corus themselves with respect to carriers...and its now less than 24 hours to go.
I've basically told my kids to not hold their breath.
I suspect the Rogers agents won't know because they all too busy dealing with Navigatr complaints.
I received an inquiry regarding it last night and actually had to check out the Wikipedia entry for the channel as I had never heard of the channel before then.
