    Typical of DC France, changing the awesome DC 1999-2003 non-American font with this ugly childish font
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RteUT208dHg also note the "disneychannel.fr" on idents with a completely unrelevant font

    They also did smaller changes with the 2003 rebrand too; the rest of the world used those, and had a better promo style too
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sr7XFYL3YT4 , https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LfGRtTItjA

    Still speaking of DC France, someone should fire this awful female voice, she has lasted for TOO long! : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOZN_7-A7ag
    DC Italy has had the same male voiceover for ALL promos for too long (since its launch! They only had another female voiceover for some years or so), there's no variety and the Italian promos have been boring for too long.. they also force announcers to be "nice" but it just comes up as being forced ; sadly it's an Italian tradition to have the same announcer for all the promos of one channel.. and yes, Italian TV can be quite crap in general

    I'd say my Italian DC counterpart has similar faults as DC France; BTW this is the voice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VZdUj2SdQA

    [MENTION=50528]Red Arrow :D[/MENTION]: Disney in English will probably have it's days counted. It will probably never adopt it, never even look like adopting it.

    I hope so, except for Timon & Pumbaa and Lilo & Stitch (simply put them on another channel) the channel has NO SENSE to exist ; recently they have shown some English educational shorts there, just as a reason to keep this stupid channel alive.. BTW subtitles and double audio track exist on all Disney channels
    It just is there to show how the Italian Disney team can be really incompetent and stupid

    Yep ; a secondary audio track is something "automatic" for the great majority of the paying channels here

    I must say that DC Netherlands does good and dynamic promotions too (along with the UK and other UK-controlled versions) and uses some good music; the Italian promotions on our Disney channels just look bland cookie-cutter "put some clips and date and time" with very little inventive.. our promos nowadays almost never use some commercial music but just some recycled soundtrack
    In addition to that they weirdly show an ident after the "Next" bumper and then a promo and a You're watching DC (which I hate) ident before and after an external Sky promo (why they have to show them anyways?) and some stupid music video from the likes of Violetta and this new "Cata", making the whole break "heavy".. they just cannot have a balance
    DC Spain/Portugal has some dynamism too

    Francisque, maybe you should calm down a bit :D

    The Flemish DC has been using this voice since the beginning:
    Disney Channel laat je verrassen! Doe mee en maak kans op gave prijzen (BE) - YouTube
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9a-P1nwpE4Q
    But we have already discussed her ''Look how Flemish I am! Did you know I come from Flanders? I come from Flanders, not Holland!'' accent :rolleyes:

    However, they recently started using a new voice actress:
    Zomer-marathon: Nieuwe series! Zondag 17 augustus vanaf 9u45 @Disney Channel (BE) - YouTube
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTK_Zgf5aj0
    She is so much better. She sounds more natural :)

    Do not worry, I'm a calm person, it's just that the channel looks so bland now :D
    I agree, I never liked that voice, she has no spirit! This new one sounds much better..

    After our rebrand, The old voiceovers got replaced with two new ones (the old ones are only used for the idents). I personality like the older ones better than the new ones because the female one sounds very childish in my opinion. :sad:
    Yesterday the regular schedule began and new idents launched. One thing that I hate is that the Pillow fight ident is played for all night! Why can't they mix between those "5 seconds" idents? Our DC gets very strange during night, the coming up next banner isn't used, promos doesn't air, same ident all night etc. I wonder why...:shrug:
    By the way here's 2 new idents that I've uploaded, I'm not sure if they are filmed by DC Scandinavia but I haven't seen them on any other DC:

    @dcbanners I really like the Swedish announcer on idents, they sound really good!
    You mean her: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSaZbOrzrR4
    I also have notice a downgrading of the UK voice talents; I do not like that much the new announcers, especially that woman with a forced "yoof" accent.. still, she sounds more "human" than what the Italian DC announcer has become (he used to sound cool..)
    I wonder why they do that.. it almost sounds like they are "DC UK Preview" but with shows on!

    I agree that the announcer on the ident is much better. :D
    This happens after 10pm when some providers closes the channel for the day, but I'm not sure if there's still a provider who doesn't have the 24/7 channel. Last year they instead aired normally until 12am but now we're back to 10pm again. I guess this is because it's easier since their schedule is very complicated because of the feeds getting splitter so I guess they don't wanna put their time on doing that for the night.. :/

    Well, most kids and even non-kids channels do not show "ads" during nighttime (over here no channel I think), but they normally show promos, and the promos on DC Scandi are not localised, so they should have no problem!
    Mysterious :D

    I guess so, I have asked DC Sweden on their FB page. I hope they'll answer because sometimes it feels that they don't know anything about the channel at all except promoting stuff etc :D

    The last time I checked TV7PM's Philippine website, they had the general SEA schedule. Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network have fully separate feeds.

    They probably get the generic feed.

    The schedule you saw is Singapore feed, not the main SEA feed that never airs live-action shows. To see the schedule of Philippines feed, check out this website:
    http://www.mysky.com.ph
    And you'll see some DXD (Pacman) and live-action (SIU, Jessie, GLC and Violetta) shows in their schedule.
