Jetix Play

Jetix Play (Formerly Fox Kids Play) was the sister channel of Jetix owned by Jetix Europe (co-owned by the Walt Disney Company) that broadcast in many European countries, mainly in Northern Europe. The channel was launched on November, 2001 as Fox Kids Play and mainly showed classic animated cartoons and animated television series from the Saban Entertainment catalogue as well as other programs owned by ABC Family Worldwide and Fox Kids Europe/Jetix Europe, as well as some DIC Entertainment shows which Jetix Europe owned the distribution rights to at the time. It broadcast for 17 hours a day in the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, the Balkans, Israel, Russia and CIS countries, and North Africa.

Advertising was shown in Turkish, Russian and Polish; the voices in the ads were only heard on the respective audio tracks. The other audio tracks either mute the ad's voice track (if such was available) or replace the entire audio with Jetix stock music. The replacement music in question is also used on other multilingual Disney-owned channels in Europe, such as Disney Channel CEE.

Disney Rebrand

After Jetix Europe was bought and absorbed into The Walt Disney Company, they began to close down the Jetix Play channels, replacing them with Playhouse Disney in some regions.

The Netherlands feed was the first to close, on January 1, 2010. The Polish, Bulgarian, Czech and Slovakian feeds closed on August 1, 2010 and were all replaced with dedicated Playhouse Disney channels. The Turkish feed was also replaced with Playhouse Disney on September 1, 2010. The Romanian feed eventually closed on March 12, 2011 and the last Jetix Play, seen in EMEA countries, was replaced with Playhouse Disney EMEA, which itself was rebranded to Disney Junior EMEA on June 1, 2011. Playhouse Disney, nor Disney Junior at the time wasn't licensed to air on Russian cable networks, and therefore wasn't available there.
