How To Get Disney Plus On Your Smart TV – I finally decided to pull the trigger on Disney+, the buzziest streaming channel around? Yes, believe the hype. Because in addition to ad-free movies and series from the Walt Disney collection, Disney also gives parents and fans of all ages access to Pixar, plus the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Star Wars, National Geographic, and even 20th Century Fox content like The Simpsons and many more.
Disney Plus is probably a no-brainer option for you as far as streaming subscriptions go.
Currently, you can get Disney+ for $7.99 a month or $79.99 a year. However, if you want to take advantage of the streaming bundle deal, you can also get Hulu, ESPN+, and Disney+ for $13.99 a month.
Once you’ve subscribed to Disney+, getting it on your TV is the next obstacle.
There are a few different ways to go about it. First, if you have a smart TV, you have to download the app from the TV’s app store. Here’s how to do it on a variety of TVs.
How To Watch Disney Plus On Smart TVs
If you’ve already invested in a new television set, you’re in luck. It’s incredibly easy to watch Disney+ on smart TVs: download the Disney+ app through your television’s app store, log in, and you’re good to go.
According to the service’s FAQs, Disney+ is currently available to stream on Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, and Chromecast devices, including Sharp AQUOS and Sony Bravia, LG TV running WebOS 3.0 and above, and Samsung TVs running the Tizen OS. For the best viewing experience, make sure that your smart TV is fully updated and running the most recent version of its operating system.
How to get Disney Plus on your Chromecast built-in smart TV
If you have a smart TV that doesn’t list Disney Plus in its app store, you may still be able to cast what you’re watching to your TV from your phone. Many smart TVs have Chromecast built-in, meaning you can cast content onto your TV without having the Chromecast plug-in device.
- Tap the cast icon in the top right corner of the Disney Plus app on your mobile device. If it’s possible to cast Disney Plus on your TV, it will appear on the list of casting options.
- Select your TV from the list of available devices, and the Disney Plus app should connect to your TV. You can select what you want to watch on the app, and it will play on the TV.
How to get Disney Plus on your TV using a streaming device
If you don’t have a smart TV, you can essentially turn yours into a smart TV using a streaming device that will plug into your TV’s HDMI port.
And if you choose the Amazon Fire Stick or a Roku device, you’ll be able to get Disney Plus from your app store in a similar way to the methods listed above for smart TVs.
If you choose a Google Chromecast plug-in device, you’ll be able to cast to your TV using the same method described for Chromecast built-in TVs. The only difference is that you need to plug the Chromecast device into your TV’s HDMI port if it doesn’t have it built-in. You can Chromecast from any device, such as your iPhone, iPad, Mac computer, Android, or any Google Chrome web browser.
If all else fails, you can plug an HDMI cable into your TV, connect it to your laptop, and play your videos from the Disney Plus web browser.
So, no matter what kind of TV you have, you should be able to find a way to watch Disney Plus on it, as long as you have a working HDMI port available.
