Even better, Disney Plus is affordable at only $12.99 a month.
If you do decide to sign up, you’ll notice that the streaming experience is seamless, without major buffering issues or technical problems. Even better, Disney Plus is compatible with plenty of devices, so you can watch your favourite content on small or large screens, at home or on the go.
Of course, you can access Disney Plus via web browsers on PCs or Macs, but there are plenty more ways to watch. Here’s the complete list to get you started.
Amazon Fire TV Stick
The Amazon Fire TV Stick is compatible with Disney Plus and is very similar to Chromecast, allowing users to wirelessly stream content from mobile devices to your TV. However, it also lets you install apps like Disney Plus so you can watch without your mobile device.
Type Disney Plus into the search bar on your Fire TV Stick home screen, install it and log in with your Disney Plus credentials.
Chromecast is affordable and user-friendly, making it a fine choice for plenty of users who don’t have a smart TV but still want to enjoy content on the big screen.
All you need to do is have your device up and running by connecting it to your TV, then cast content from Disney Plus to the TV using your smartphone as a remote. Here’s a step-by-step guide that should come in handy.
