Disney Junior is a Canadian French language Category B specialty channel. Following the sale of Astral Media to Bell Media, Disney Junior and several other Astral networks (including Family, Disney XD, Musimax and MusiquePlus) were placed into a blind trust, as they will be sold to an undetermined third-party.[1]Disney Junior is a commercial-free channel with entertainment and learning-based programming targeted toward preschoolers.[2]


The channel was licensed in 2006 as Vrak Junior, a sister channel to Astral's Vrak.TV, though, aimed at younger viewers than Vrak.TV.[3] It was launched on July 5, 2010 as Playhouse Disney Télé. The channel was rebranded as Disney Junior on May 6, 2011, while focusing on the same type of programming, programs for preschoolers.[4]

An English language version of Disney Junior was launched in Canada by Astral on November 30, 2007 (then known as Playhouse Disney Channel) as a multiplex channel of Family. It was rebranded Disney Junior on the same day as the French-language channel.

On March 4, 2013, following the Competition Bureau's approval of Bell Media's takeover of Astral, Bell announced that it would put Disney Junior's English and French services, along with four other channels (Family, Disney XD, MusiMax and MusiquePlus) up for sale, in an attempt to relieve CRTC concerns regarding the takeover.[5]
