Disney Junior Replaced Playhouse Disney Channel.
The following details are from Wikipedia "The Free Encyclopedia"
Disney Junior is a current program block on Disney Channel and an upcoming American basic cable and satellite television networkintended to replace SOAPnet in February 2012. It began airing on February 14, 2011, replacing Playhouse Disney.
The first new programs were Jake and the Never Land Pirates, Tinga Tinga Tales and Babar and the Adventures of Badou. Carrying over from Playhouse Disney were Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Handy Manny, Little Einsteins, Jungle Junction, Chuggington, Imagination Movers,Special Agent Oso, and Timmy Time.
Disney Junior first launched as a programming block on February 14, 2011, replacing Playhouse Disney. The first program was Jake and the Never Land Pirates. In its first week since its debut, Disney Junior delivered Disney Channel’s best ratings ever in the daypart among Kids 2-5 (474,000/2.8 rating).
A 24-hour basic cable and satellite channel for Disney Junior will launch in February 2012. It will replace the woman-targeted soap opera channel, SOAPnet. The channel was originally set to debut in Jaunary 2012, but got pushed to spring 2012, but as of September 2011, it got pushed again to February 2012.
The channel is expecting its original series (Jake and the Never Land Pirates, 3rd & Bird, etc.), shows from the Playhouse Disney library (that are currently airing on the block) (Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Handy Manny, Special Agent Oso, etc.), movies appropriate for very younger viewers (Cars, Finding Nemo, Dumbo, etc.) and short-form series in its lineup. On June 17, 2011, it has been comfirmed that the Disney Junior channel will include "old-school" Playhouse Disney series in its lineup when the channel launches. Examples for "old-school" Playhouse Disney series include Stanley, Higglytown Heroes, Bear in the Big Blue House, and JoJo's Circus.
When the channel launches, it will also provide affiliate partners with a robust video-on-demand offering, a high-definition network (marketed as Disney Junior HD) and a Spanish language SAP feed.
ProgrammingEditMain article: List of programs broadcast by Disney Junior
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Chuggington, Imagination Movers, Jungle Junction, Handy Manny, Little Einsteins, Special Agent Oso and Timmy Time, all popular Playhouse Disney series, were moved to the block and continue to broadcast.
Disney Junior broadcasts from September until late May from 6:00 am to 2:00 pm ET (5:00 am to 1:00 pm CT) on weekdays, and from 6:00 am to 9:00 am ET, (5:00 am to 8:00 am CT) on weekends and also during major holidays (Christmas, Easter, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day) and also 6:00 am to 10:00 am ET (5:00 am to 9:00 am CT) on weekdays from late May (post-Memorial Day through Labor Day), each running a different schedule. They feature 25-minute standard length shows, interspersed with short 5 minute shorts and music videos. Between these times, there are no commercials played during Disney Junior (though Disney Channel, being a commercial-free cable channel, does not air regular commercials anyway), though short "promotional spots" do run every so often, such as often seen on PBS. Between 4:00 and 6:00, when Disney Channel animated programs air under the regular Disney Channel branding, there are commercials for Disney properties as there are for other Disney Channel programs.
Former shows on the former Playhouse Disney block will air reruns by popular demand on the Disney Junior channel in its launch on February 2012, replacing SOAPnet.
Related servicesEditLogo for Disney Junior HD in 2012.
Disney Junior HD will be a high definition simulcast feed, broadcasting a moderate amount of Disney Junior's programming in 720p HD. It will begin broadcasting in February 2012. Many cable providers will carry the HD simulcast feed, along with DirecTV, AT&T U-verse and Verizon FIOS. Currently, Dish Network does not carry the Disney/ABC Cable Networks' HD simulcast channels due to a retransmission consent dispute with the Walt Disney Company, so it will probably not carry the channel.
HD versions of Disney Junior had already launched in Canada, Asia , France and The Netherlands. Currently, Disney Junior HD appears to be a block on the HD feed version on Disney Channel.
