1989 (postponed)

Disney Channel was originally planned to launch in 1989 in the United Kingdom on the newly launched Sky satellite television service. It would have used the American version's then-current second logo (see below); however, due to an apparent dispute, the original launch was postponed. Sky Television filed a lawsuit against The Walt Disney Company for not launching the channel on the original date, and the launch was moved to October 1995.

In 1995, the first international versions of Disney Channel were launched in Taiwan (March) and the UK (October). The initial on-air look used the American counterpart's 1986 logo, with the idents created by Lambie-Nairn.

The idents were used in tandem with the next logo until August 1997.
