I've made a thread about the old international Fox Kids and Jetix (including Fox Kids Play/Jetix Play) channels (and/or feeds), where you can talk about those channels and put your memories from them and also their old schedules, promos and continuities.

I'll begin with two continuities from Jetix Poland from circa April 2007 I've found on Youtube today..:

and a continuity of Fox Kids Poland from June 2003:

Poland did have its own feed right? Then why they do not use Polish inscriptions in their promos
Oh my bad; in a promo they do.. it's interesting the bumper in the 2nd video with the sleeping Jetix character ; they did show that before 6am? It was used before Jetix UK changed to Disney XD too

A total of 58 countries had Jetix in Europe and the Middle East, and obviously they were originally named Fox Kids.
Source: jetixeurope.com, Information accurate as of 2008, which was the last full year of Jetix branding in Europe.
As a final sidenote, Jetix/Fox Kids Play was also the name of the interactive service in the UK, it wasn't a channel.

it's interesting the bumper in the 2nd video with the sleeping Jetix character ; they did show that before 6am? It was used before Jetix UK changed to Disney XD too
Well, this ident with sleeping Jetix "cat" was used on Jetix Poland just before 00:00 CET for about 1 minute. Then the bumper froze for circa 30 seconds and then it to the black screen. After the black screen at 06:00 CET the channel started the day with an ident and then the first show on schedule started.
Here's how the Jetix closedown looked between 2005-late 2007: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nK9NieZA7V0

They also used to show the sleeping Jetix ident just before teleshopping starts on Jetix UK.

The most thing i remember on Jetix UK is some random show called PXG. It was made by Prisim Entertainment (probably a typo there) and this show was about a Japan-ish ninja reviewing games or movies. (dunno about movies, but that's what i remember)

What about Scandinavia? Why it ran from 6am to 6pm only? Was it just straight closed down when Toon Disney became Disney XD?
Did it share with some other channels? I can't find info about it

I know Jetix (Don't know what country) used to show Mickey Mouse and His Friends, a strange version of Mouse Tracks. (I never seen Jetix in other countries, I found it on the web)

In Latin America and Brazil, Fox Kids was launched in 1996 and achieved huge success, until the Jetix was launched in 2002 replacing Fox Kids, and unfortunately replaced in 2009 by Disney XD.

Fox Kids Brazil in 1999:

Too bad LA wasn't blessed with Fox Kids' "European graphics"
I have to agree with you about the graphics, they were great in Europe.
Fox Kids in the UK timeshared with National Geographic Channel (another Fox property) and later on, Challenge (it wasn't a BSkyB owned channel then) on the Analogue feed.
6pm on the Scandinavian feed seems rather early, I would assume that the Travel Channel would technically be teleshopping on that channel. :D

Here (not sure if some local TV still do) many local commercial TVs used to have since late 90s early 2000s a Fox Kids 1-hour simulcast from 6pm to 7pm: there even were some Fox Kids game idents filler to do a proper handover.. they usually put there some of their highest rated shows
In 2004 (the 1st of January) this block officially split from the Fox Kids channel (which was about to become Jetix) and became a brand of its own: K2 .. In many regional TVs it also expanded during the morning (something like 6.50am to 8am; intiailly the morning they had a Power Rangers branded block, almost like treated as an own channel, all dedicated to many series of the Power Ranger brand).. the K2 brand in its earlier days was strongly similar to the Fox Kids CEE graphics of that time (the ones used before rebranding to Jetix), the channel however was still a mix of the Fox Kids/Jetix schedule
In 2008 the Jetix company decided to launch a K2 proper channel on DTT and satellite; local TVs continued to pick this signal up until many later on dropped this (as DTT became stronger)
In 2010 a sister channel called Frisbee also launched; more recently, "Switchover Media" , the successor of Jetix Europe (which still owns GXT) became owned by Discovery.. hence K2 and Frisbee now have much more "mainstream programming" (DC series, older Jetix series and even some education Discovery programming) ; with Discovery these channels also became 16:9

This recording of Mickey Mouse and Friends intro came probably from an Asian version of Jetix (due to the size of the Jetix bug and its position on top-right).

India it is. The only other Asian Jetix was Jetix Japan.
South Korea had a Jetix block on CHAMP when the channel was new and owned by CJ E&M, the owners of Tooniverse (the channel's currently owned by Daewon Media, who also own ANIONE and Anibox).
