We were already under the impression that Disney’s rather successful streaming service was available on Philips TVs, but the TV/Audio brand has underlined that it’s available on its 2020 models, too
Disney Plus is celebrating the landmark of 50 million sign ups around the world, and part of that is due to the increasing availability of the service. Philips announced this week – in case you weren’t already aware – that the video streaming app is now available on its 2020 TV models.
By opting for an annual membership, you can save 15% as opposed to paying the monthly rate for Disney Plus. For classics like The Simpsons and Recess, alongside modern staples like Frozen 2 and The Mandalorian, it's an absolute bargain.
Disney+ had been available on Philips sets in Netherlands, thanks to the service’s early launch in that area. It was also available on older Philips TVs through the Google Play app store on its Android TVs.
Consumers with 2020 Philips TV models can now access the app via the Smart TV homepage. Supported Android OS TVs include last year’s PUS9104, 8804, 8204 and OLED934 models, with the service also available on Philips’ 7354, 7304, 7334 and 7504 TVs.

As Philips most recent TVs support Dolby Vision and Atmos, they’re a prime way to watch Disney+ in the best quality possible. And you also get the added bonus of Ambilight technology, which uses LEDs to cast the on-screen colours back to the wall.
