Disney XD UK turns time shift service into Avengers Channel


From April 1st to the 29th, viewers of the United Kingdom’s Disney XD timeshift channel are in for a treat. Just for this month, the company has rebranded its Disney XD +1 service to the Avengers Channel. To celebrate April 26th debut of Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, fans can check out every episode of the Avengers Assemble animated series.

That won’t be all, however. Viewers will also find loads of exclusive shorts, including channel premieres of Marvel Funko, Marvel Superhero Adventures and Marvel Video Comics. There will also be special Avengers: Infinity War programs featuring cast interviews, recaps and quizzes

While the Avengers are taking centre stage in April, Disney XD favourites will still be on the box. Shows like Dude That’s My Ghost!, Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja and Boyster will continue to air alongside the superhero content.

“With the launch of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War just around the corner, this pop-up channel will bring together all of our fantastic Marvel Avengers content, showcasing the most popular characters from the Marvel universe. The Avengers continue to inspire kids and the pop-up channel will allow them to further experience all things Iron Man, Captain America and much more,” says David Levine, general manager of Disney Channels UK and Ireland.

Disney XD +1 is available to Sky and Virgin subscribers.
