Buena Vista Television LLC, operating under the name Disney-ABC Domestic Television (DADT) and Disney-ABC Home Entertainment and Television Distribution, also as ABC Syndication (formerly Buena Vista Television) is the syndication subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company, handling the distribution of the productions of 20th Television, ABC Signature, Walt Disney Television Animation and other Disney production companies.

Disney Media Distribution or DMD (originally named Buena Vista International Television or BVI then in September 2007 changed to Disney-ABC International Television or DAIT until 2011) is responsible for the distribution outside the US, while videos and DVDs distribution are handled by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment (previously Buena Vista Home Entertainment).
