Disney Junior Now Available Through Shaw CableSunday, December 11, 2011
As a Disney Junior Mom, I am super excited to bring you some wonderful news. As of November 15, 2011, Shaw Cable has partnered up with Astral Media Inc. to bring you the much anticipated Disney Junior channel. Customers can now enjoy a variety of family programming and it doesn't just stop with Disney Junior. They have also included Disney XD in Standard and High Definition as well as the Family Channel HD.
We’re proud to include this additional content to our already broad selection of family programming. With the launch of these new channels, the variety of family- focused live and on demand content is better than ever before. (Peter Bissonnette, President, Shaw Communications Inc.)This means that Shaw Cable customers will be able to watch the same commercial-free programming that Disney Junior fans across the nation have come to know and love, shows like Jake and the Never Land Pirates, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and my favourite Stella and Sam. This also includes the super cool ‘On Demand’ feature, which I love, and www.DisneyJunior.ca. And from now until January 10, 2012, customers can benefit from a free preview of these new channels, which will join the nine channels currently available as part of the Family pack ($5 per month). If you already subscribe to the HD Plus package, the High Definition channels will be included as well.
The launch of Disney XD and Disney Junior has been eagerly anticipated and I am thrilled that these channels will now be available to Shaw customers. The offerings of both these brands are unlike anything else in the marketplace. By launching these channels, Shaw has demonstrated its dedication to offering its customers a wealth of family programming options. (Joe Tedesco, Senior Vice-President and General Manager, Astral Kids)Over the past year, I have learned from Shaw customers how disappointed they were that they were unable to watch the Disney Junior channel that we raved so much about. I am quite thrilled that their children can now sit down to watch the same magical stories that my own children enjoy. And just in time for the holidays, too! So if you're a Shaw customer, be sure to check out the special holiday programming scheduled on Snow Day Saturdays during the month of December and read about Minnie's Bow-Toons week. Welcome to the wonderful world of Disney Junior!
