In an ongoing effort to super-serve kids and tweens across the platforms that are most relevant to their lifestyles, Disney Channel is launching a completely redesigned online offering allowing their kid and tween audiences more intuitive ways to find, share and engage with their favorite Disney Channel shows. A collaboration between the Disney/ABC Television Group's Digital Media team and the Disney Interactive Media Group, the new site, currently available for preview at www.DisneyChannel.com/beta, was built on industry-leading video, advertising and content management platforms that will also power the next generation of Disney.com.

Our goal is to always anticipate the desires of our viewers across the platforms and devices they interact with on a daily basis," said Gary Marsh, President and Chief Creative Officer, Disney Channels Worldwide. "Working in partnership, the Disney Channel digital media team and Disney Interactive Media Group have gone to great lengths, bringing together the top technology talent across both of our teams, to create a new site that, among many other cutting-edge features, incorporates a variety of age-appropriate social tools that make finding, consuming and sharing media easier and more fun."
