Three Ways to Watch Disney Plus Video on TV

Disney Plus is primarily known for its vast library of Disney content, as well as a selection of popular titles from Marvel, Star Wars, and more. In addition to the massive content, it also offers the greatest convenience for subscribers to stream the content. This service can be accessed on a variety of devices, including smartphones, tablets, computers, and TVs. And streaming Disney Plus on a big screen with friends at home is the best way to go. This article mainly talks about how to watch Disney Plus videos on TV.

There are several ways to watch Disney Plus on TV, depending on the type of TV you have. If you have a smart TV, no matter whether it is manufactured by Samsung, LG, Sony, or others, you can typically just log in to your Disney Plus account and start streaming. If you have a more traditional TV or the Disney Plus app is not supported on your non-smart TV, you may need to connect your TV to a streaming device such as a Roku or Amazon Fire TV Stick. If you want to watch Disney Plus on TV offline, then you can try the third method, which is to download Disney Plus on the computer by using a downloader such as TunePat DisneyPlus Video Downloader and then connect your computer to the TV. The three methods will be introduced separately in the following, and no matter how you watch Disney Plus on your TV, you're sure to enjoy all the great content it has to offer.

three ways to watch disney plus video on tv

1. Watch Disney Plus on Smart TV

The easiest way to watch Disney Plus on TV is using the Disney Plus app. Nowadays, the Disney Plus app is available on most smart TVs of any kind, like Philips, Samsung, LG, and Panasonic TVs. You can check the supported devices on Disney Plus. If the Disney Plus app is not yet installed on your TV, you can download it from the App Store on your TV. Let’s take the Samsung smart TV as an example. For the best viewing experience, please make sure your TV is running the most recent version of its operating system.

Step 1 Find the Apps icon on your TV’s home screen and open it. Select the search icon on the app screen and enter “Disney+” using the on-screen keyboard. When the Disney Plus app shows up, select it and then select the “Install” button to install the app on your TV.

Step 2 Once installed, open the Disney+ app, and log in with your Disney Plus account. Now you can stream Disney Plus content on the TV.

Please note that not all TV models from the above brands support the Disney Plus app. For Samsung Smart TVs, the Disney Plus app is available to download on Samsung Smart TVs that are manufactured from 2016 to the current lineup. In addition, some TV models have Chromecast built-in, which you can also use to stream Disney Plus content from your Android or iOS mobile devices to a TV.

Steps to Watch Disney Plus on Smart TV via the Built-In Chromecast

Step 1 Make sure the Google Home app is installed on your mobile device and updated to the latest version.

Step 2 Make sure your mobile device and the TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

Step 3 Open Disney Plus app on your mobile device and log in to your account.

Step 4 Browse and find the video you want to play and then press "Play" icon. Then select the Chromecast icon at the top of the screen and choose your TV from the list of available devices.

If your TV doesn’t have it built-in, you can buy a Google Chromecast or other streaming devices and connect it to your TV. Or you can try the third method to download videos to watch offline on TV.

2. Watch Disney Plus on Non-Smart TV

If you have a non-smart TV, using a streaming media device like Amazon Fire TV, Roku, and Apple TV, is also a good option to access Disney Plus on your TV. You can plug a streaming device into the HDMI port in the back or side of your TV set and access Disney Plus through the app on the streaming device. In addition, if you have a gaming console such as an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 and 5, you can also watch Disney+ content by downloading the app on your console and logging in with your account. Getting and watching Disney Plus on a streaming device or game console is basically the same as on a smart TV.

Supported Gaming Consoles and Streaming Devices:

  • Amazon Fire TV (Fire OS 5.0 and later)
  • Apple TV (4th generation and later)
