Disney Junior (formerly known as Playhouse Disney) was a Southeast Asian pay television channel owned by Fox Networks Group Asia Pacific. Aimed mainly at children between ages two to seven years old,[12] its programming consists of original first-run television series, theatrically-released and made-for-DVD movies and other select third-party programming.

Disney Junior also lent its name to an early morning program block seen on sister network Disney Channel, branded as Disney Junior on Disney Channel until it discontinued since July 31, 2018, using the Disney Channel moniker.

History

Disney Junior Asia was officially launched on April 2, 2004, in Hong Kong as Playhouse Disney,[2] then the morning block on Disney Channel was launched on May 24, 2004. Between June 2004 to December 2005, Disney launched Playhouse Disney in several countries in Southeast Asia.

On June 30, 2011, Laura Wendt, Vice President and Managing Director of Disney Channels Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, and Korea announced that Playhouse Disney will be rebranded as Disney Junior in Southeast Asia & Hong Kong on July 11, 2011. Laura said that Disney Junior will feature the hallmarks of the Disney brand, story, and character. They'll take classic Disney characters, beloved, through generations, and bring them to life on TV with elements that encourage early childhood learning.[8]

On July 31, 2018, Disney Junior on Disney Channel block was discontinued using the Disney Channel moniker.

On June 1, 2020, Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior ceased transmission in Singapore on both Singtel and StarHub after failing the contract renewal with service providers in the country.[13] Select programs from these 3 channels were moved, replaced and made available via Disney+ on February 23, 2021.

On August 5, 2020, Disney Junior upgraded to HD on Astro alongside Disney Channel. On January 1, 2021, the channels ceased operations across Astro and Astro-owned TV providers (including NJOI and Kristal-Astro) in Malaysia due to the launch of Astro's Refreshed Kids Pack on December 14, 2020, and Disney+ Hotstar in Malaysia on June 1, 2021. They were replaced by Nick Jr. and Boomerang which launched on the same date, on the same Astro package (Kids Pack).[14] The cessation message put characters, including those from Tom & Jerry, and Dora, in both Disney Channel and Disney Junior's channel slots delivering this message: "This channel is no longer available. Enjoy the refreshed Kids Pack with new channels Boomerang (CH 619) and Nick Jr. (CH 617) on TV & 10,000 episodes demand. We also have FAMtv (CH 100), a brand new pop-up channel." This message relayed that both Disney Channel and Disney Junior would not appear again on Astro after the official cessation.[15]

After 17 years of broadcasting, Disney Junior Asia, Disney Junior Hong Kong, Disney Channel Asia, Disney Channel Hong Kong along with Disney channels and many other Fox channels in Southeast Asia ended their broadcasts in Asia effective October 1, 2021,[10] at exactly 1:00 am (UTC+08:00) and 12:00 am (UTC+07:00). The last program that aired is the first episode of Mira, Royal Detective (The Case of the Missing Scarf) respectively, before showing the message "This channel is no longer available, thank you for watching." after the program.[16] However, Disney Junior shows will be shown on Disney+ Hotstar (in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam) and Disney+ (in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Philippines and Singapore) instead.[17][18] Nevertheless, Disney Channel Taiwan and Disney Junior Taiwan, along with National Geographic Asia and National Geographic Wild Asia, will continue to operate after this date.[11] The Taiwan feed of the Disney Junior channel along with Disney Channel Taiwan, Fox Taiwan, Fox Movies Taiwan, Star Movies HD Taiwan and Fox Sports Brazil will cease its operations on January 1, 2022, a month before the discontinuation of Star Premium group channels in Latin America.[19]
