I think I listed all of the remaining Disney Channel feeds. There are even fewer Disney XD feeds remaining in existence: USA, Canada, Netherlands and Poland.

Also, there's Kanal Disney serving Russia and selected CIS countries, which is available in Russian.

I'd ask more which Disney XD will close first. It still exists in USA, Canada, the Netherlands and Poland.
In Canada I think it will close when the license ends. For Poland and Netherlands is a weird case, being joint ventures and stuff.

Disney XD (Netherland) won't closed because of Veronica's timeshare!
If Disney XD will closing in that country then Tapla Network will replace it with SBSKids.
Talpa Network is in the process of being bought by RTL, it could well become a Dutch version of Super RTL, or Veronica goes 24/7.

It's Talpa (=Latin for mole), named after the CEO John de Mol (=Dutch for John the Mole) :)

I doubt the Netherlands will ever get new channels with the name SBS. They'll keep SBS6 though because it's a popular brand.

RTL8 already has a kids block so there is no need for a second kids block.

"RTL Telekids" is not just a programme block for RTL8 because there's a 24-hour standalone channel with same name.

How about this? If Veronica and Disney XD would split into two 24-hour channel then Talpa will able to merge Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD into SBSKids as 24-hour channel since Veronica need a 24/7 channel rather than a timeshare.

I misremembered. The kids block closed down on January 1st, 2021 and the channel is still there. (I thought it was the opposite)

The episode of Nick News changed to different episode at very last minute
I guess 4Kids Entertainment skipped Tokyo Mew Mew's second half due to its darker and edgier content or the poor ratings of the first half.
Gonna be honest with you all: I don't feel safe living in this country right now.
I love my Nintendo Switch I got back in 2018, I've played an awful lot since I got it. I've played Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Pokemon: Legends Arceus and many more wonderful Nintendo titles over the years of when I got it. I've been a Nintendo fan since I got my first console purchase, The Nintendo GameCube, back in 2002.

I predict that the COVID-19 pandemic will end permanently by 2023.
