Canadian platform Shaw Direct has launched the new family services Disney XD and Disney Junior en Français.
Debuting in high definition, Disney XD features series and movies showcasing sports and comedy focusing on boys, while the French-language Disney Junior lines up entertaining and educational programming for preschoolers.
In addition, high definition versions of the premium, commercial-free networks Family Channel and Disney Junior's English-language network are also available on Shaw Direct.
Reaching approximately six million homes across Canada, Family Channel airs a mix of series, movies and specials, with a large proportion of programming being supplied by Disney. It also offers Family OnDemand, a television-based subscription video on demand (SVOD) service and Family OnLine, an Internet-based, streaming service. Available at no additional cost, both services offer hit Disney movies and series along with Canadian series.
