Disney Junior is an American digital cable and satellite television network that is owned by the Disney Channels Worldwide unit of the Disney–ABC Television Group, itself a unit of the Disney Media Networks division of The Walt Disney Company. Aimed mainly at children 8 years and under, its programming consists of original first-run television series, theatrically-released and made-for-DVD movies and select other third-party programming.
Until January 2017, Disney Junior also lent its name to a morning and early afternoon program block seen on sister network Disney Channel, branded as “Disney Junior on Disney Channel“, airing weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (6:00 to 10:00 a.m. during the summer months and designated school break periods) and weekends from 6:00 to 9:00 a.m. Eastern and Pacific Time. A Spanish-language block airs on Univision under the name Planeta U.
As of January 2016, the channel is available to 74.0 million households in America.
