ProgrammingEdit

Disney Channel airs some live action shows subtitled in Portuguese and others dubbed, animated series, short series, Disney XD (Spain), and films.

AudiencesEdit

As of October 2012, Disney Channel Portugal has disputed the leadership of subscription television ratings, in terms of daily average, with Canal Hollywood, finishing second for all but one week. However, it was the channel with most shows on the top 15 along the month, ranging from five to nine shows per week.[3][4][5][6]

Disney Channel is the most watched children's channel and the 4th most watched channel in Portugal.[7]
