Disney-owned channels are returning to Spectrum, but there are a few notable exceptions.

Freeform, FXM, FXX, Disney Junior, Disney XD, Baby TV, Nat Geo Wild and Net Geo Mundo won’t be returning to Spectrum as part of the cable company’s programming deal with Disney.

The agreement marks the unceremonious end to these channels — at least for the 14.7 million Spectrum subscribers. It also raises questions about the future of those channels, with the Spectrum deal setting a precedent for other pay-TV providers to make similar requests down the line.

The company only noted that the move is specific to Spectrum and its parent company Charter Communications. Much of the content can be found on streaming platforms such as Disney+ or Hulu.

Freeform is the home to popular shows like Grownish, the young adult spin-off of ABC’s Blackish, as well as Cruel Summer. FXX, meanwhile, is home to long-running comedy hit It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Archer.
