Disney La Chaîne, branded on-air as La chaîne Disney, is a Canadian French language Category B specialty channel owned by Corus Entertainment, and launched on September 1, 2015, replacing Télétoon Rétro. It is a localized version of the U.S. specialty network Disney Channel, broadcasting live-action and animated programming aimed at children in French-speaking regions of Canada.

The launch of the network came alongside a licensing deal reached between Disney and Corus, in which it acquired Canadian rights to Disney Channel's programming library, and the announcement of a Canadian version of Disney Channel broadcasting in English that launched concurrently. Previous rightsholder DHX Media never operated any Disney Channel-branded services in English or French, and its only French-language Disney-branded property was a French-language Canadian version of the preschool children's brand Disney Junior.

History

By virtue of its previous co-ownership with Family Channel, French-language dubs of Disney Channel programs were historically aired by Vrak.TV. Vrak.TV was separated from Family with the acquisition of Astral Media by Bell Media; in an attempt to relieve concerns surrounding Bell's total market share in English-language television following the merger, Bell elected to divest Family Channel and its sister networks to DHX Media, which included Astral's French-language version of Disney Junior.[1]

On April 16, 2015, Corus Entertainment announced that it had acquired long-term, Canadian multi-platform rights to Disney Channel's programming library; the cost and duration of the licensing deal were not disclosed. Alongside the licensing deal, Corus announced that it would officially launch a Canadian version of Disney Channel; the service will consist of linear television channels in English and French, along with TV Everywhere and video-on-demand services for digital platforms.[2][1]

The French-language service, La chaîne Disney, launched concurrently with its English-language counterpart on September 1, 2015. It replaced Télétoon Rétro in its previous channel allotments, and operates under the same CRTC license.[3][4]

In 2018, the channel was rebranded to match its English-language counterpart while keeping its logo.

Programming

La chaîne Disney's programming consists mainly of French-language dubs of existing programs from Disney Channel. Disney XD and Disney Junior programs are also included as part of their respective programming blocks, Disney Junior sur la chaîne Disney[5] and Disney XD Zone (referenced as XD Zone).[6][7]
