By Gabriela Vatu / December 24, 2019

Kids of all ages can rely on Disney to have their backs and deliver content that's curated for them. Disney Channel, Disney Junior, and Disney XD are all networks that respond to the needs of children of all ages. We'll teach you how you can watch Disney channels online so you'll have them with you whenever you're in need.

Disney Channel was first launched back in 1983, while Disney XD was introduced in 2009, and Disney Junior in 2011. The majority of the Disney Channel content is geared towards children 6 through 16, while Disney XD targets pretty much the same demographic, but features original TV series and made-for-TV films. On the other hand, Disney Junior is aimed at kids under 7 years old.

How Can I Live Stream Disney Channel, Disney XD, and Disney Junior?

Watching Disney channels online is something quite easy to do because there are a lot of live TV platforms that can help you do this in just a few steps. In fact, We think the best option to watch Disney channels online is Hulu, which is a great single-bundle platform. The service features all three networks - Disney Channel, Disney XD, and Disney Junior! Start your 7-day free trial on Hulu today!

If you seek more content, you can get it by adding any of the available channel packs and premium networks. Furthermore, you should know that when you subscribe to Hulu's live TV service, you also get to enjoy everything that's available on-demand in Hulu's library, which is pretty awesome. You can watch Hulu live on a number of devices, as there are apps available for iOS and Android phones and tablets, Chromecast, Roku, Apple TV, Android TV, Fire TV, and more. (Note: Hulu is a platform that only works in the United States, so if you're traveling abroad and want to have access to it, you'll need a VPN to help you connect to a US-based server.

Other Ways to Watch Disney Channel, Disney XD, and Disney Junior

Sling TV - Another platform that hosts all three channels is Sling TV, which is a great platform that comes with three different bundles. Disney Channel is the only one that's present in two of these bundles - Orange and Orange + Blue -, while Disney XD and Disney Junior are part of the Kids channel pack. Your choice in bundles will influence the number of devices you can watch content on, with Orange subscribers getting access to a single stream, while Orange + Blue subscribers get access to four simultaneous streams. Start your Sling TV subscription by saving 40% off the first month! Besides the bundles, you can also add a bunch of channel packs, including Kids, where you'll find the other Disney channels, and premium networks.

YouTube TV - You'll also find all three Disney channels over on YouTube TV, part of the main bundle. Of course, there's a single bundle of channels available here and you can't even add extra packs here, although premium networks are available for those who want them. Also great about YouTube TV is the fact that you can watch content on up to three devices at the same time and enjoy unlimited cloud DVR storage space.

Can I Watch Disney Channel, Disney XD, and Disney Junior When Traveling Outside of the US?

When you travel outside of the United States, you can no longer access the content that you're used to at home. This happens because the platforms you use have licensing deals in place and can't allow their content to be broadcast beyond US borders. Nonetheless, you can still do this if you know-how, namely by using a VPN to change your IP address so you appear to be in the US. We think using ExpressVPN is your best option since this is a tool with thousands of servers across the world, including the United States and will help you connect to such a server in under a minute.

Here's how you can use ExpressVPN to watch Disney Channels anywhere in the world:

Can I Watch Disney Channels on The Network Websites?

Yes, this is something that you can do quite easily. Disney has a one-stop-shop for all its channels, and you can visit the Disney Now website for this. On top of being able to stream loads of content from Disney, as well as access games with your favorite characters, you can also access a live stream.

In order to do this, you can use credentials from your TV provider, including the live TV services we mentioned above. (Note: The Disney Now website is geoblocked so if you're going to access it when traveling abroad, you should know that you need to use a VPN.)
