Disney Junior to Launch 24 Hour Television Network on March 23, 2012
Replacing SOAPnet on most television content providers, Disney Channel today announced that its 24 hour channel, Disney Junior, aimed at the ‘preschool-plus’ market, will begin broadcasting on March 23.
At launch will be the new show, ‘Doc McStuffins,’ which heralds the tales of a six year old girl with a talent to be able to communicate with her stuffed animals and plays veterinarian to them. Future programs will include ‘Gaspard and Lisa,’ ‘Guess How Much I Love You,’ ‘Sofia the First’ and ‘Oki’s Oasis.’
‘Mickey Mouse Clubhouse,’ ‘Little Einsteins,’ ‘Handy Manny,’ ‘Rolie Polie Olie’ and ‘Jake and the Never Land Pirates,’ which have already found a niche on the existing Disney Junior programming block on Disney Channel will also air on the new 24-hour channel. The Disney Junior programming block is also expected to remain on Disney Channel.
