You can install the Disney+ app on your Apple TV and enjoy The Mandalorian, the latest Marvel flicks and classic films from Disney’s massive library.

Step 1. Check that you have a compatible 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.

Step 2. Download the Disney+ app

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.

Step 3. Create a Disney+ account

If you haven’t already set up an account, you can do so from the app.

You can sign up to a subscription for £7.99 per month. And if you really love Disney+, you can get a whole year’s access for £79.90.

Step 4. Log in

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. You’ll also be able to watch shows from the Star Wars Universe, including the 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.
