How to set up Disney+ on Android TV
Disney's new streaming service is here. Here's how you can watch it on your Android TV.
Disney’s new streaming service Disney+ isn’t just for smartphones, tablets and computers. There’s an entire generation of TVs that can run the latest streaming service without the need for a Chromecast or Apple TV.
Step 1. Download the Disney+ app
If your TV supports Disney+, the app will be available through the Google Play store. Disney says that its service works with an Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or newer operating system, although there are reports that it’s not working on some devices.
Launch the Google Play store on your Android TV device and search for the Disney+ app. Once you’ve found the app, click “Install”.
Once the app is installed you can launch it. If you’ve already created a Disney+ account, you can log in right away and head straight to Step 3.
Step 2. Create a Disney+ account on your Android TV
If you haven’t already set up an account, you can do so from the app.
Step 3. Log in and watch from your Android TV
Once your account is set up, log in through the Android TV app and start browsing Disney+’s extensive library, which features classic and reimagined Disney hits, movies from Pixar, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, new and old Star Wars and documentaries from National Geographic.
