This article is about a Canadian television channel operated by Corus Entertainment and launched on December 1, 2015. For the Canadian television channel that was previously known as Disney XD, see WildBrainTV.

History A Canadian version of Disney XD was originally launched by Astral Media on June 1, 2011, as a spin-off of Family Channel, which had historically held rights to the programming of Disney Channel and its spin-off brands. After Bell Media acquired Astral in 2013, the company sold Disney XD along with its sister channels (Family Channel and the French and English versions of Disney Junior) to DHX Media. On April 16, 2015, Corus Entertainment announced that it had reached an agreement to acquire Canadian rights to Disney Channel programming and brands.

Disney XD programming initially aired in a programming block on the Canadian version of Disney Channel, which Corus launched on September 1, 2015. The Disney XD-branded channel owned by DHX was renamed Family Chrgd on October 9, 2015, then again to its current moniker on March 1, 2022.

The new Corus-owned Disney XD channel launched on December 1, 2015, as an exempt discretionary service. On September 1, 2017, the channel obtained a discretionary service license from the CRTC. Through Corus Entertainment's acquisition of Shaw Media, Disney XD and its sister networks are now co-owned with the former Shaw Media channels as of April 1, 2016.
