After Disney XD successfully launched on February 13, 2009 in the US, Disney-ABC Television Group rolled it out to France on April 1, 2009 and it was expected to be rolled out to other European territories in 2009.[1][2] Recently, however, Disney announced that the Jetix channel in certain countries (namely the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria) will be renamed to Disney Channel, marking that channel's first introduction in these countries. The channel was replaced on September 19, 2009.[3]

On May 3, 2011, Disney Channel Czech Republic started using the same and updated on-air logo as in the United States, along with several other Disney Channels across Europe, completing its transitional rebrand to the new look. The new logo has debuted on the Czech feed first, prior to appearing on the UK, German, French, Dutch and Spanish feeds. The Playhouse Disney programming block was rebranded to Disney Junior in the Czech Republic and Slovakia on June 1, 2011.

Since 2012, most of the channel's promos are being produced in widescreen. In December 2012, Disney Channel Czech Republic has adapted the same on-air presentation and graphics, with minor differences, used by Disney Channel UK. This update has been fully complete in spring.

In June 2014, Disney Channel Czech and Hungary will get the new logo that is currently used by Disney Channel Germany
