How to watch Disney+ TV shows and movies offline on tablets and smartphones
Get the app and download content to watch later. Just make sure you have the space.
Disney+ is here and unlike most of the other streaming services, its entire library is available for offline viewing. That means you can load up your device in preparation for a long flight or when you want to save your data.
Step 1: Set up Disney+ on your mobile device
Go to the App Store on your iOS device or the Google Play store on your Android device and search for the Disney+ app. Click on the “Get” button and install the app to your device.
Then, create an account with Disney+ and log in with your device.
Step 2: Find the movie or series you want to save for offline access
Once you’ve browsed or searched through Disney’s huge library of content and found the movie or show you want to watch when you’re offline, tap the download button. This saves content to local storage to watch later. But, movies do chew up quite a bit of storage space. For example, Avengers: Endgame, which has a 3-hour run time, uses about 1.18 GB of space.
If you’re downloading a series, such as the new Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, or High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, you can choose to either download individual episodes or an entire series.
Download an entire series by tapping on the download icon adjacent to the word “Season” or choose the icon against each episode.
Step 3: Track the progress of your downloads
Along the bottom of the Disney+ app, there’s a set of four icons. Tapping on the “Downloads” icon lists the content that’s available for offline use.
Step 4: Start watching
To watch a Disney+ movie or TV show that you’ve saved for offline viewing, tap on the download icon at the bottom of the screen and choose from your local content from the list. There’s no limit as to how many you can download at a time, and they never expire as long as you log in every 30 days.
