How to watch Disney+ on Google Chromecast

Use your Chromecast to watch Disney+ on your TV.

Disney’s new streaming service Disney+ is live in Canada. And while being able to take content with you on your smartphone or tablet is great, nothing beats sinking into your favourite spot on the couch and chilling out to a great movie or TV show.

Disney+ works with Google’s Chromecast, so you can easily send content from your small screen to the big screen. Here’s how to set up Chromecast with Disney+:
