Disney-ABC Home Entertainment and Television Distribution is the domestic distribution unit of the Disney-ABC Television Group, a division of The Walt Disney Company formed in July 2007 initially as "Disney-ABC Domestic Television" after the Disney-ABC Television Group re-branded its syndication division Buena Vista Television, when The Walt Disney Company retired the "Buena Vista" brand. In 2013, its barter syndication division was renamed to "ABC Syndication". Since August 2015, Disney-ABC Domestic Television was renamed to its current name.

(2007- )

Nicknames: "Crashing Stars", "Disney-ABC in the Sky"

Logo: We see two stars flying downward on a black space background. They merge into a white star, and the logo starts to take form with the Disney (in the corporate font) logo and the ABC logo (tinted blue) coming from each side with the words "Home Entertainment and Television Distribution" (previously "DOMESTIC TELEVISION"), under the two small lines, and a blue sky background, with clouds appearing. As this is happening, the Disney logo and star fade from white to blue. After this, the clouds move slowly to the left. In most cases, however, the short version is used, so the logo tends to cut off before the clouds make any significant movement.

  • On Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? for Nintendo DS, a still version is used. The Disney/ABC logos and words are placed horizontally against a white background, with the Disney and ABC logos separated by a vertical line.
  • An updated version of the logo was introduced in September 2013. The sky color fade-in plays faster, and starts a second earlier. The ABC logo was modified into the 2013 rendition that made its debut that Summer, but with a blue shine instead of a yellow one.
  • The logo was updated in 2015 to reflect the name change.

FX/SFX: The two stars merging and the flying logo.

Music/Sounds: A remix of the 1997 medium-length Buena Vista Television logo theme. The instrumentation has been made more majestic. Like the Buena Vista logo, there are long, medium and short versions. Sometimes, the closing theme plays over the logo.

Music/Sounds Variants:
  • On Live! with Kelly and Ryan, the first half of the music plays over before the show fades to the logo and the second half is on the logo. The first half is on low volume while the second half is on the normal volume.
  • On Katie, FABLife, and Right This Minute, only the last seven notes are used.
  • On some Katie, FABLife, and Right This Minute episodes, the long version of the 1997 Buena Vista Television logo theme is used, remixed the same way as the normal version of the theme and ending with a drum-roll.

Availability: Common.
  • Currently appears on post-2007 episodes of first-run syndication programs such as Live! with Kelly and Ryan, and Tamron Hallamong others.
  • Reruns of the syndicated version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? on GSN with Meredith Vieira plasters the Buena Vista Television logos with this logo.
  • Don't expect this to appear on reruns of the Disney-ABC library, because Disney allegedly has a logo policy to keep all of the original logos and to protect the Disney company's family image; this logo is seen only on first-run syndicated series.

Editor's Note: The name of this division is rather long (and rather redundant as well), but this logo is still perfectly fine.
