Can you use Chromecast to watch Disney Plus?
Best answer: Yes. Disney+ works with Google’s Chromecast, so you can easily send content from your small screen to the big screen. It does not matter if your TV is new or old, it just needs to have a HDMI port. Once this is done you can watch Disney+ from your Android or iOs device and mirror directly on to your TV.
- Start streaming:

Step 1. Sign up to Disney Plus
In order to watch Disney Plus you need to register.

If you haven’t already, you’ll need to install and configure Chromecast to your TV. Although Chromecast is a Google product, it works with virtually any device.
- Plug your Chromecast dongle into one of the HDMI ports on your TV.
- Stick your Chromecast’s power cable into a suitable power socket.
- Switch your TV to the appropriate HDMI input.
- If you haven’t already configured your Chromecast, follow the on-screen prompts to connect it to your home Wi-Fi network.
Once all that is done, you’ll be ready to start streaming.
