How to get Disney Plus on Roku TV in a few simple

Disney Plus is a streaming platform developed and maintained by the Walt Disney Company. Due to the fact that this streaming platform is directly related to Disney, which is one of the leading companies in producing movies, cartoons, series, and other entertainment content, it has become one of the most popular.

Obviously, the reason for its fast rise in popularity is the availability of exclusive content created by Disney. As a consequence, almost from the start, the platform already had an audience of fans of Disney movies and cartoons. However, despite its popularity, this service is young, and because it was only launched in 2019 isn’t available on all platforms. Below, you’ll find out whether the Walt Disney Company has already ported their streaming service to Roku TV, as well as exactly how to install and use it.

Fortunately, if you want to take advantage of the streaming service everyone’s talking about, there are several devices you can use to access Disney Plus, including Roku players. Below, I will tell you how you can take advantage of Disney Plus on Roku.

How to check can you use your Roku TV to access to Disney Plus or not

While Disney Plus wasn’t available on all devices at launch, this rule didn’t apply to Roku products. The service has been available on most Roku devices since launch, including the Roku Streaming Stick+, Roku Ultra, and Roku Premiere. Only some older devices don’t support Disney Plus. Further, the listed Roku tech models don’t support Disney Plus:

  • Roku Streaming Stick models 3400X and 3420X.
  • Roku LT models 2400X and 2450X
  • Roku 2 HD models 3000X and 3050X
  • Roku 2 XS Model 3100X
  • Roku HD model 2500X

If you aren’t sure which device you have, you can check it by following these steps:

  1. Go to the Home screen.
  2. Then go from the Home screen to “Settings”.
  3. In Settings, locate the “System” tab.
  4. There go to “About”.

There you will be able to see the model number. If there is a different designation above, Disney Plus should be supported.
