How to get Disney Plus on smart TVs

The list of compatible TVs includes LG, Roku, Samsung and Android TVs.

Disney+ supports Samsung Tizen TVs from 2016 onwards. Search for it in the App section, and it should be found there. The app is not supported by older Samsung TVs that use the Orsay OS.

If you have an LG TV from 2016 onwards, or one with WebOS 3.0 onwards, you can access the Disney+ app through the LG Content Store. LG TV support Dolby Vision, so you’ll be able to view content in the best quality possible.

Roku TV is also supported, which is great for those with the rather good Hisense Roku TV R50B7120uk. Head to the Roku Channel Store and the apps is in the Movies & TV section of the Streaming Channels section. From there it can be added to the homepage.

Last but not least, are Android TVs. We’ve covered this area before, but for completionist sake Android TVs (and set-top boxes) are supported. That means the Disney+ app can be found on Philips, Sony Bravia, Sharp and TCL models in the UK.

Panasonic hasn’t released a Disney+ app for its My Home Screen OS, but we believe Panasonic is working on bringing it to its smart platform.

What about if you’re you’re an owner of a TV that either doesn’t support the app? There are a number of streaming sticks you can use to gain access.

That list of streaming players includes Amazon Fire TV sticks and Roku streaming players. If you have an Apple TV box (4th gen onwards), that can also be used.
