I fear that it might actually shut down especially when a lot of countries already shut down DC.

Yep, that would be the inevitable next move, or the move that would happen at the same time.

I doubt that the channels (inc. Disney Junior) would be worth kept paying.

I could see another kids channel eventually replacing Disney Channel and launching on DTT, like in Korea.

Now, Disney Channel Germany might be next?

Disney Channel Russia too probably will stay, as Disney+ isn't going to launch in Russia very soon?

@RegularCapital if Spain is any similar to Italy, then Disney+ is rather known as a brand, now (thanks to good campaigns)

Honestly, I have no idea if they'll actually get rid of Disney Channel Scandinavia or not. The feed still doesn't have a lot of animated programs (and there's way too much live-action), and Disney+'s Disney Channel/Disney XD/Disney Junior lineup in Denmark is still very lackluster (Amphibia is straight-up missing, for instance!) so far, but the feed could have its lineup improved if there was a greater emphasis on Disney's own animation, as well as if Amphibia actually aired daily as opposed to only on Fridays in addition to airing both the first and second seasons (come on, people in Denmark deserve to see "True Colors" dubbed into Danish)!

Depends. I think Russia, Germany and Scandinavia will exist for at least until 2025, maybe some countries will survive until 2030 (along with US). Then again, they want to focus on streaming so shutting down the feeds sooner than later might not be surprising.

A bit of future prediction. I think every single DC will no longer exist after 2050. There's still time, but I feel that they really want to go all in with full streaming and stop caring about the television channels.

This is the second Christmas without Disney Channel in the UK, and kinda also the second Christmas without Sky Movies Disney (it closed in early January), the good news (and as expected) is that Disney films continue to air on BBC One over Christmas.

No, the Disney Channel in Germany will continue to exist! This has already been communicated several times by Ms. Eun-Kyung Park!

Disney's business in Germany is very different from other European countries. Disney Germany is more deeply rooted in the industry and also has a number of strategic partnerships and is still involved in a few things.

It should not be forgotten that the Disney Channel in Germany hardly collides with Disney+, unlike in other European markets. During the day, the Disney Channel in Germany relies exclusively on German in-house productions and cartoons, while archive material for teenagers and adults from the live action area is broadcast during prime time. Additionally, third-party productions that are not added to Disney+ will air both during the day and prime time.

The audience numbers are also clearly in the green area.

I still don't see it survive after 2050. My opinion and I respect that you have yours.

In view of the slow broadband expansion and the generally poor internet in Germany, especially in rural and geographically greener areas, we could look forward to the fact that a large part of Germany may be covered with 4K in 2050. Most cables in Germany are still made of copper. And the German bureaucracy is slow, very slow.

And Ms. Merkel once uttered a legendary sentence (2013): "The Internet is new territory for all of us!". And this is how the government has acted for the past 16 years.

And in the TV industry, too, the industry is lagging a decade or two behind in places.

Of course, nobody knows what will be in 2050. But for the time being, the Disney Channel in Germany will not be closed. But that could look very different in 2030.

Same for Italy, this hasn't stopped them shutting down Disney Italian channels.

Not saying they'll shut down, but let's not be TOO SURE about that

No offense intended, but I think that canceling Jaydeep Hasrajani's "Boons and Curses" is like a punishment for the said show's creator being involved in the hated 2016 Powerpuff Girls reboot. Your opinions on my comment?
There is a big difference between "understanding someone's actions" and "agreeing with someone's actions". Sometimes, I get the feeling that some don't recognize the difference.
It feels like crossover fighters are replacing kart racers as a video game genre.

The last point is on the corny side, but it's worth mentioning.
My hopes for the Warner Bros. Discovery upfront tomorrow.
HBO Max picks up Bone from Netflix.
Discovery Family replacement announced.
