Disney Channel is an American basic cable and satellite television network, owned by the Disney-ABC Television Group division of The Walt Disney Company under the direction of Disney-ABC Television Group President Anne Sweeney. The channel's headquarters are located on West Alameda Ave. in Burbank, California. Disney Channels Worldwide, currently run by President Carolina Lightcap, is a global portfolio of more than 90 kid-driven, family inclusive entertainment channels and/or channel feeds available in over 160 countries and 30 languages. The platform brands are Disney Channel, Disney XD, Playhouse Disney, Disney Cinemagic, Hungama TV and Radio Disney.

The channel specializes in programming for children through original series and movies, as well as third-party programming. It is marketed mostly toward young children, with the exception of their weekend primetime block that is aimed at pre-teens and teenagers ages 9–15, and the Playhouse Disney programming block that is aimed at children ages 2–5; however, in recent years the diversity of viewers has increased with an older audience, typically teenagers, young adults and young families.

Since November 19, 2010, the channel is offered with an alternate Spanish-language audio feed, either via a separate channel as part of a Spanish-language network package sold by cable and satellite providers or via a separate audio track with the SAP option, depending on the system.
