Disney XD is obviously owned by none other than Disney Channel Worldwide which is part of the ABC Television Group. The network is aimed primarily at children aged between 6-14, and the programming usually consists of original series, first run series, made for cable movies and a couple of films from its sister network i.e. the Disney channel. Spanish speakers can use the alternative Spanish audio feed with the English track removed but its part of the Spanish television package offered by cable service providers. Disney XD is available in over 80,120,000 homes across the US which is roughly 69% of households with a television. So, it’s a pretty popular television network and not only because Star Wars: Rebels lives there (but the new Duck Tales too!).
Since most kids, these days have an iPad or some other portable device it makes sense that they be able to watch Disney XD on that device. Below is how you can stream Disney XD live and possibly save on having to buy a regular television.
Watch Disney XD Online Using the Official App and Website
The official Disney website does not offer live streaming, unfortunately, and the same can be said for the four different apps for iOS and Android devices. However, what sets the website apart from the app is that there is a lot of free content that your kids can watch. Though the videos are rather short and there are no complete episodes of popular shows. The apps, on the other hand, have no content just a few extras here and there with the ability for your kids to send in their photos to stand a chance to participate in shows or win something. But if online streaming is something you’re looking for then we have a couple of other options worth considering below.
