Disney Channel coming to ‘Picnic’ if approved

If Sky’s proposed DTT pay TV service gets the go-ahead, Sky have announced a new channel that will be on the lineup – the Disney Channel. This adds to the existing proposed lineup of one Sky Movies channel, one Sky Sports channel, Sky One and Sky News (none of these are 100% confirmed). The Disney Channel on the proposed DTT pay TV offering ‘Picnic’ will be a new channel consisting of the best of the other Disney channels that appear on the Sky and Virgin Media channel lineups. It’s thought this channel would air from 6am-6pm (the same hours as ABC1 used to occupy on the DTT platform before it closed down). Ofcom are still undecided on whether to approve the ‘Picnic’ service or not. Watch this space.
