DISNEY News: RUMOR ARISES THAT DISNEY CHANNEL AND OTHER DISNEY CHANNELS ARE CLOSING IN LATIN AMERICA. THERE IS NO OFFICIAL REPORT ABOUT THIS
Since this weekend, a wild rumor began to spread that Disney has planned to close its television and satellite channel of Disney Channel in Latin America.
This is how a medium that has been entertaining the whole family for more than two decades would come to an end. This information also suggests that the same would be true of the Disney Junior and Disney XD channels, which also have a long tradition of entertaining viewers.
DISNEY CHANNEL CLOSURE IS NOT CONFIRMED
When would all these channels stop working? It is supposed to be June 25 this year. Now, this report is not official. The company has not issued a statement on the matter.
The private TV services, which have the obligation to inform their clients of changes of this type, have not said anything either. There is a comment from an unofficial account about it, and there were some media that they accepted.
We refer to Disney Latin America (@mydisneylatino), which in its profile emphasizes that it has no direct relationship with the company. Why is the Disney Channel and other channels going to disappear?
The same rumor says that it is waiting for users to migrate from these media to their video on demand service. That is, Disney +. In this sense, it must be said that the current CEO of Disney, Bob Chapek, spoke on the subject only in May of this year.
DISNEY CEO ANNOUNCED CHANNELS WILL BE CLOSED
He revealed that the Walt Disney Co. plans to close a hundred international channels this year to support its video platform. That was at a conference at JPMorgan Chase & Co., and they will join the 30 foreign networks shut down last year.
“The vast majority of that content will migrate to Disney +,” Chapek said, adding, “that remains a fundamental strategy for us as we move towards a direct consumer focus.”
In 2020 Disney closed the Disney Channel in the UK. So based on what this CEO said, it is possible.
Now, we would like to say that some media also manage that Dany Martins, host of Zapping Zone, also spoke of the closure of this channel in Latin America. However, we do not have his statements at hand. This is why we cannot trust this report without proof to support the information.
