When the Disney Channel officially arrived in Canada earlier this year, Disney XD and Disney Junior became CHRGD and Family Jr. This was due to rights issues and were only name changes as programming didn’t alter that much (trying to explain that to a four-year-old didn’t really go over well though).
The good news is that Disney XD and Disney Junior return to Canadian airwaves Dec. 1 while CHRGD and Family Jr. are here to stay as well. Now your little ones have more choice for their after-school TV viewing.
What will these new channels offer? Well for starters Star War Rebels, Gravity Falls, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Kirby Buckets and Lab Rats will now air exclusively on Disney XD, while Disney Junior will have Doc McStuffins, Jake and The Never Land Pirates, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Miles from Tomorrowland, Sofia the First and the new show Goldie & Bear.
