It may have been some time after the North American launch, but Disney Plus – and key shows such as The Mandalorian – are now finally available in the UK for all your streaming needs.
Disney Plus is thankfully available to watch on a plethora of mobile phones, game consoles and other devices – including Apple’s entertainment box.
If you haven’t already got Disney Plus you can start your seven day free trial now – or subscribe for £59.99 a year, or £5.99 a month
Here’s what Apple TV models are compatible – and how to download the long-awaited app.
Can I get Disney Plus on Apple TV?
Yes, Disney Plus will be available as an app on Apple TV from launch, meaning you can watch it alongside other streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Now TV.
The app can also be connected to the official Apple TV app, which means Disney content will be integrated into offerings from your other streaming subscriptions much like Sky Q. If you have Virgin Media though, bad news, you can’t integrate Disney Plus with your current set up – the same for BT.
The app will only be available on newer Apple TV models – either an Apple TV HD fourth generation or later, or an Apple TV 4K.
What if my Apple TV is too old?
If you have a separate device that supports AirPlay – such as an iPhone or iPad – then you can stream Disney Plus to a third-generation Apple TV through this method.
You can still stream Disney Plus to your TV on other devices such as the Amazon Fire TV Stick and the PS4 – for a full list of devices that support the streaming service check out our guide to Disney Plus compatible devices.
How much is Disney Plus on Apple TV?
You’ll still need a subscription to Disney Plus in order to use the app on your Apple TV, which is available for the usual price of £59.99 for an annual subscription or £5.99 a month.
Disney Plus also offers a seven-day free trial to new customers, meaning you won’t be charged if you cancel during the trial period.
