Disney Plus is available on a lot of devices, including iPhone, iPad, Android devices, and of course TVs running Android TV OS. Disney Plus is available both on TVs running Android TV OS and set-top boxes running Android TV OS (like Mi Box).
So, no matter the type of device, you can download Disney Plus and start watching Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and other Disney subsidiaries’ content. Here’s what you should do to download Disney Plus on Android TV or a set-top box running Android TV OS.
How to get Disney Plus on Android TV
Here’s how to download Disney Plus on any device running Android TV OS:
- First of all, you will need to go to Google Play Store and search for Disney Plus (If you’re from India – you will need to search for Disney Plus Hotstar app).
- Choose Install.
- After the app would be downloaded – go to the Home screen, find the app and open it.
- Sign in with your Disney Plus credentials.
- Find Disney Plus on the Home screen and run the app.
- Search for the content you want to watch.
- Choose Play.
Disney recommends you have a high-speed connection to be able to watch content without lags. If you have a poor or unstable connection – you can download content to watch offline.
What Android TVs support Disney Plus
To support Disney Plus – Android TV should be running Android OS Lollipop 5.0 or later. There are no other limitations, so any TV or set-top box with Android OS 5.0+ can run the Disney Plus app and you can install it.
Taking into account Android Lolipop was released back in 2014 – almost any Android TV has a later OS, so I don’t think you can face the problem with that.
Can you watch Disney Plus 4K content on Android TV
The short answer is: yes, you can. There are around 120 4K movies on Disney Plus. However, to watch 4K content, you will need to have a 4K TV.
Also, if we speak about set-top boxes running Android OS – make sure it can output a 4K signal (you can check that in specifications).
Don’t forget that 4K content demands a high-speed Internet connection, at least 25 Mbps. If your Internet connection isn’t fast enough – you can download Disney Plus content to watch offline, so you won’t face lags.
How much is Disney Plus per month?
Disney Plus offers a lot of bundling options – including bundling with Hulu or ESPN streaming services. However, if you want to subscribe for Disney Plus only – it will cost only $8 a month.
However, you can also subscribe, for example, to Disney Plus, Hulu (ad-free) + Live TV, and ESPN+ bundle, which will cost $79 a month. So, everything depends on your needs.
