Best Answer: Yes, you can watch Disney+ on an Apple TV so long as it's 4th Gen or newer, meaning if you bought it in the last three years, you're probably fine.

Always Disney, anywhere: Disney+ ($7/month at Disney+)

Does it matter which generation Apple TV?

Yes, in order for the Disney+ app to run on your Apple TV, you'll need to have a 4th Gen device (released in 2015) or newer. Then as long as it is running tvOS, you'll be able to get the Disney+ app and stream all of the Disney+ content, which includes original Disney classics, Marvel, Star Wars, and Disney+ exclusives.

So I can also watch Disney+ on my iPhone, iPad, or Mac?

That's correct. Disney+ is available on all Apple devices, including iPhones (iOS) and iPads (iPadOS). You are also able to watch it on your Mac since it is accessible through desktop web browsers.
