Marvel Avengers are getting their own channel. Disney Channels UK & Ireland has announced a channel takeover that will see Disney XD+1 temporarily rebrand as Marvel Avengers Channel. The takeover takes effect from April 1st and will last until April 29th.
The Avengers channel will feature the world premiere of exclusive Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War content, four new Marvel Funko animated shorts, and channel premiere of Marvel’s Video Comics shorts and Marvel Super Hero Adventures shorts. Every episode of Marvel’s Avengers Assemble ever made will be broadcast during the course of the month.
“With the launch of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War just around the corner, this pop-up channel will bring together all of our fantastic Marvel Avengers content, showcasing the most popular characters from the Marvel universe”, said David Levine, General Manager of Disney Channels UK and Ireland. “The Avengers continue to inspire kids and the pop-up channel will allow them to further experience all things Iron Man, Captain America and much more!”
This marks the third channel takeover that Disney Channels UK & Ireland has staged on Disney XD+1. The two previous takeovers were for Marvel Spider-Man and Mickey And Pals.
