Disney Plus is the new streaming platform released in the United States in recent 2019 that offers thousands of contents from the American multinational. Everyone loves Disney, and everyone loves Disney cartoons and movies. This is as true in the United States as it is in other countries of the world, such as ours.

In fact, since Disney Plus landed in Italy, the number of subscribers has skyrocketed . In short, there are literally thousands of people who have shown interest in taking advantage of Disney + content shortly after its arrival on our market.

This is witnessed by the growing interest of owners of smart TVs , who often find themselves wondering how to download Disney Plus on their television. That is why we are here today. The guide you will read will provide you with all the information you need to be able to access Disney content in a few moments . If you are ready, let’s get started.

Disney +: Catalog, Prices and …

The answer may seem obvious, especially after the advances we have made. However, we want to “dot the i’s” so that you have all the information at your disposal. For example, did you know that the streaming service in question does not only include Disney products ? Yes, Disney + does not just offer the cartoons or films of the American multinational, but offers much, much more.

In fact, the catalog is full of all the Pixar , Marvel , National Geographic contents and so on and so forth. Consequently, it is by no means a service entirely dedicated to children, as has often been heard. The range of offer is very wide and varied, and also meets the needs of adolescents and families. But, how much does all this cost? Much less than you might imagine.


The monthly subscription is € 6.99 per month, but if you want you can activate the annual subscription, which costs € 69.99 per year. Also, to see if the service meets your needs, you can take advantage of the 7-day free trial available, which does not require any renewal. Also, a benefit of Disney + is the cross-platform service , which allows you to view content on multiple devices.

If you want, in fact, you can use it from a browser at the official website, as well as you can use it from smartphones and tablets. In this regard, we would like to underline that there is no limitation for operating systems: Disney + can be downloaded on both Android and iOS devices . Likewise, the Disney streaming service can also be downloaded to smart TVs , although there are some limitations to consider.

In fact, the models that currently support the application are few, and mainly belong to LG and Samsung . However, there is no reason to be discouraged. At the end of the guide you will discover the alternative method to enjoy Disney + whether your TV is not smart or does not support the application.

Internet Connection: Let’s start with the basics

First of all, the first step you will need to take to be able to download the app on your “smart TV” is to connect it to the internet. This step will allow you to download at the store and subsequently be able to access the contents of the application. To connect the smart TV to the internet you have two options: use the Ethernet cable or use the Wifi connection .

The first option offers an optimal level of connection stability, even if Wifi connections are no different now. If you prefer to use the Ethernet cable, all you have to do is insert it into the relevant port on the back of the panel, inserting the other end into the router port.

As for the Wifi connection, however, the steps are now clear to most owners of a smart TV. The steps are few and simple , and they allow you to access the internet in minutes. In this case, however, it must be emphasized that each smart TV has different specifications, and for this reason it would be superfluous to explain in detail how to connect to Wifi.

In general, we can say that the settings menu is the first “place” where you will have to go, and then follow the icons depicted and reach that of the Wifi. From here, all you have to do is select your network and enter the password , in order to establish the connection with the smart TV. In short, in both cases it is not a question of long or complicated steps. Whichever option you choose, the intent must be to get the internet connection on the TV.

How to download Disney Plus

Well, after you have connected your smart TV to the internet we can get to the heart of the matter, discovering what are the other steps that will allow you to download the Disney + app . First, however, we would like to underline an important aspect, although it is not decisive in any case. An LG smart TV may have small differences compared to a Samsung smart TV regarding the steps to be taken to download the app.

However, this is nothing transcendental, as the steps are still very similar. The first thing you will have to do is head to the Google Play Store (in the case of Samsung) and head towards the search bar, usually indicated with the magnifying glass icon. Here you will have to write “Disney +” and wait for the application to appear on the panel display.



Then you will have to search for the button with the item “Download” or “Installation”, depending on what your smart TV presents. At this point you just have to wait for the operation to complete and then start the app and go to the “Login” button. Here you will have the possibility to enter your account data and log in , which will take you directly to the contents in the app.

If you have the Disney + app on other devices, such as your smartphone or tablet, you can log in from there, so you don’t have to enter the data by hand on the TV. However, this is only possible if your devices are connected to the same Wifi network as the TV.

How to access Disney Plus on non-smart televisions

So far we have seen how to download Disney + on smart TVs, but what happens if we have a television without an internet connection ? Will we have to give up the app content? Absolutely not. In fact, to date, there are several solutions that you can rely on if you do not have a latest generation TV.

The first is to download Disney Plus on the PlayStation 4 or Xbobx One , increasingly used also to take advantage of streaming services. The second, on the other hand, is to download the app on the Fire Stick or Apple TV . In addition, on Apple TV you can take advantage of the convenience of the AirPlay function to enjoy Disney + content from the application for iPhone and iPad devices.

In short, the options available to you to download Disney Plus are not few, and they cover all your needs. What are you waiting for? Practice what you’ve read so far and start watching your favorite Disney movies right away.
