After Disney XD successfully launched on February 13, 2009 in the US, the Disney-ABC Television Group re-branded Jetix France to Disney XD on April 1, 2009 and it was expected to be rolled out to other European territories in 2009. Recently, however, Disney announced that the Jetix channel in certain countries (namely Hungary, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Bulgaria) will be renamed to The Disney Channel, marking that channel's first introduction in these countries. An exact date was not mentioned but it is expected that the change will happen by the end of 2009.  The new channels may be given separate space for each country's version (unlike the the two multilingual Jetix channels currently present), but this is unclear at this time.
After the rebranding, the channel will divide into many tv channels : Disney Channel : Bulgaria,Croatia,Estonia,Kazahstan,Romania,Russia and Serbia. Disney Channel Romania will air in Romania and Moldova.
