Finally, Rogers Digital VIP cable subscribers can access Playhouse Disney Canada. The preschool channel, run by the folks behind Family Channel. The station's not only available on television, but also through Family On Demand, and online.

It all kicks off October 12.

The channel's offerings include the same first-run programs seen stateside on Playhouse Disney, plus a few Canadian offerings. Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Special Agent Oso and Handy Manny are joined by local content like The Secret World of Benjamin Bear and author Marie-Louise Gay's Stella and Sam, premiering in January.

The programs will join the Family On Demand lineup, with highlights like Phineas and Ferb, Wizards of Waverly Place, and Life with Derek.

According to Joe Tedesco, VP and GM of Family Channel and Playhouse Disney, "A multiplatform offering is supremely important to kids who want their content where they want and when they want.”

“The ability to offer the premium Disney content and popular Canadian titles that kids want to a broader base of families is important to maintaining Astral’s leadership position in children's entertainment and indicative of Rogers commitment to providing the best programming possible to their subscribers."

The channel launched on TELUS TV, July 26, on channel 74 in BC and Alberta.
