idk maybe we can change this name to Disney Networks getting shut down thread since even more of these networks are getting axed in the next few years maybe the moderators can do that?

Disney would likely to kill FXX, Nat Geo Wild, Disney XD, FXM, ESPN News and ESPN U before they touch Disney Channel.

FXM, DXD, and other low rated disney networks no one cares for should be axed honestly.

i don’t see ABC getting axed because that’s an broadcast network and it’s literally the highest rated network there

But Disney XD is more likely to Shut down once ESPN Classic shuts down
They are airing reruns of AFV so oh well and I'm guessing Disney Channel International will be a thing of the past by 2025 seeing that Africa has those channels until 2024. I'm certain that region won't be alone in the linear space

DXD has turned to internal programming in order to stay afloat, "internal" in the sense of being limited to DXD USA without chances of exporting it (DXD Asia when it existed, maybe, because they were the only non-American feed to air its video game programming)

I think even Disney XD might be relatively safe in the US, due to the fact US is a big country and the fact that cable channel contracts are still a difficult thing, so that they might want to play safe and keep the thing going for some time.

Disney Channel and Disney Junior (US), even more

Good to hear that the channels are staying and on one of America's largest cable TV providers, unlike Comcast's British subsidiary - Sky (although I think that was mostly Disney's decision, otherwise the closure of Sky Cinema Disney wouldn't make much sense and Sky probably wanted to pay a fair price for the viewing share the channels were getting, the real reason was Disney+).

Also the press release vaguely refers to the channels as "the Disney branded channels" and doesn't mention them individually, makes me think Disney XD is going but in the press release it's expressed in a way without instilling any concern.

The media including myself believe that Africa will lose their Disney Channel and Disney Junior by the end of 2023 round it up you get 2024.

One thing I'm expecting from all of this is for some markets to still not have Disney+ kind of like Asia.

Well, now my laptop is functioning back to normal.
Yesterday at my local Meijer store, I saw LEGO sets for The Batman movie. I guess merch is starting to hit the shelves.
"Shani Like A Star" is a very wholesome Polly Pocket episode, whether it's in Shani trying to fit in to impress others but having trouble, Ava trying to muster up the confidence to be with others, and having Polly and Lila act like pseudo parents. Only a show like this can make the phrase "odd ducks" endearing and empowering
