Disney Channel UK's Final Logo

On 25th June 2020, Disney announced that Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD will be closing in the UK on 1st October 2020 (which would have been Disney Channel UK's 25th Anniversary), Disney wanted to withdraw from the UK pay-TV market in terms of children's channels (except for BabyTV).

In the years to the run-up to the channel's closure (from 2016),[1][2] RC did some research and analysis on Disney Channel's and Disney XD's viewing ratings from BARB's (Broadcasters' Audience Research Board) website, the institution that measures television viewing ratings in the UK, and was surprised on how poorly performing the channels were, the channels in terms of ratings were behind its competitors such as Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon, only Disney Junior has ratings that were comparable to other pay-TV children's channels, but even so, rival pay-TV pre-school channel Nick Jr performed better than Disney Junior.

It wasn't until when Disney announced their closure that a data analytics company called Enders Analysis actually published their findings on the poorly performing Disney Channels in the UK.[3]

RC's Analysis[]

Disney Channel UK didn't close just because of Disney+, as a company, Disney finds it very hard to admit failure, the channels viewing ratings were on downward spiral since the early to mid 2010's, which was not long after the rebrand of Disney XD. Before Disney XD, there was a channel called Jetix, which depended mostly on acquired programming and programming that was produced by Disney that don't fit into the Disney brand (mostly properties such as Power Rangers which was part of the Saban acquistion) and co-productions. When Disney XD launched, it became a place for some programmes that would've aired on Disney Channel, including live-action shows aimed at the male demographic and animation, as a result of the split, it produced two weaker channels, the Disney brand helped keep the channels afloat, but it only could last so long. Disney's strongest point has always been movies, but not so much in terms of television, although it does produce some fantastic animated programming for television. The good news for Disney is the incredible success of Disney+ with it now reaching 100 million subscribers, even though it didn't have much luck with broadcasting, its hitting it out of the park in terms of streaming, it has the potential to rival or even surpass Netflix.

Meanwhile during the time after the establishment of Disney XD, Nickelodeon carried on with the same strategy Disney Channel had by being all-inclusive for both boys and girls, with a sister channel focusing purely on animation. Cartoon Network focused on what children wanted, at the time there was a lot of interest in comedy animation with action elements, with the likes of Adventure Time and Regular Show, plus surreal animated family sitcoms such as The Amazing World of Gumball.
