Here’s how to set up and use Disney+ on your Apple TV.
You can install the Disney+ app on fourth or fifth generation Apple TV devices.
The most recent Apple TV, released in September 2017, supports 4K content, so you can watch Disney+ content at a higher resolution if your TV supports it. Previous generation Apple TVs support HD content, so you can still enjoy content on a big screen.
Launch the App Store on your Apple TV and search for the Disney+ app. Once you’ve found the app, click the “Install” button using your Apple TV remote.
Once the app is installed you can launch it. If you have already created a Disney+ account, you can log in and head straight to step 4.
If you haven’t already set up an account, you can do so from the app.
If you want to try before you buy, Disney+ is offering a free 7-day trial, so you can sample the service before committing. After your first free week, you can sign up for a subscription for $9.99 per month, and if you’re really committed to Disney+, you can get a full year’s access for $99.99.
Once your account is set up, you can log in through the Apple TV app and start browsing Disney+’s extensive library. This includes classic and reimagined Disney hits, Pixar animations, most of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the curious omission of Spider-Man, Star Wars including with upcoming series, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and documentaries from National Geographic.
Once you’re logged in and have chosen your preferred viewing fare, sit back, relax and enjoy the show.
