Criticism

Since Disney Channel Hong Kong mostly follows Disney Channel guideline, the channel has met similar criticism with its US counterpart: the channel moved from premium, more limited cable to more basic, widespread cable; pulled away from the characters that the networks parent company was based on and programs on Disney Channel geared only toward pre-teens and teenage girls.

As a channel of Disney, in Asia, Disney Channel Hong Kong did not air many teen-themed films of Walt Disney Pictures. It lost the premieres to STAR Movies in recent years.

Enchanted was only the first movie to issue this - which the fact is it featured animation, show the first time on the channel on January 9, 2010 though it first aired on STAR Movies about 2 years ago.
