Disney XD's Beginning
On February 13, 2009, Disney XD began transmission where it airs to this day. The channel mostly airs action-oriented children's animated television series with some live-action programming and movies aimed at male viewers age 6 to 14.
Disney XD started with some old shows like Aaron Stone and then started new series like I'm In The Band, Zeke and Luther and others. These series helped the popularity of the channel to grow. In 2010, they began airing Kick Buttowski: Suburban Daredevil. This cartoon helped the audience of the channel grow further because of the show's originality. Actually, Kick Buttowski: Suburban Daredevil is the most popular and the newest cartoon on the channel. In 2010 they also began to air Pair of Kings, a series with Hannah Montana's Mitchel Musso and The Suite Life On Deck's Doc Shaw.
