Just in case you thought having every Marvel Cinematic Universe character on screen at the same time wasn’t enough in April, Disney is converting their Disney XD+1 channel in the ‘Marvel’s Avengers Channel’ for the month!
From 1st April to 29th April, Disney XD+1 on Sky and Virgin Media will become the ‘Marvel’s Avengers Channel’, running 24-hours-a-day and featuring exclusive Marvel Studios’ ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ content as well as premieres of ‘Marvel Funko Animated Shorts’.

Every episode of ‘Marvel’s Avengers Assemble’ ever made will be broadcast during the course of the month.
The Marvel Studios’ ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ content will include ‘What the What’ and ‘Who’s Who’ and will give fans a closer look at the upcoming movie which releases in the UK nationwide on 26th April. ‘What the What’ will feature Marvel Studios’ ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ cast, fan recaps of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, quick-fire questions to the cast and viewer quizzes. Spider-man himself, Tom Holland, will be hosting the ‘Who’s Who’ session where he will shed light on the various characters that feature in the upcoming film.
“With the launch of Marvel Studios’ ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ just around the corner, this pop-up channel will bring together all of our fantastic Marvel Avengers content, showcasing the most popular characters from the Marvel universe,” commented David Levine, General Manager of Disney Channels UK and Ireland commented. “The Avengers continue to inspire kids and the pop-up channel will allow them to further experience all things Iron Man, Captain America and much more!”
