Disney+ on a Samsung Smart TVSource: Michael Gitkos / Android Central

Best answer: Yes, Disney has reached an agreement with Samsung to distribute Disney Plus (Disney+) on its smart TVs on models running Samsung's Tizen OS all the way from 2016 to its latest TVs. For TVs that are not, there's always the Chromecast.

  • Marvel on demand: Disney+ ($7/month at Disney+)
  • Cast away: Chromecast ($35 at Amazon)

It's finally here!

Disney+ is now available in many places and platforms, including on most newer model Samsung TVs. Basically, if you have a Samsung TV from 2016 or newer that is running Samsung's Tizen OS, then you should be able to download the Disney+ app and watch it natively.

This is great news for users who have a relatively recent Samsung TV, as being able to watch natively offers a great experience and means you won't have to go digging through a secondary console device or use your phone as a remote while Chromecasting them.

Other ways to watch on a Samsung TV

If your Samsung TV doesn't see the Disney+ app at launch, there are still a good number of ways to still get all the great shows Disney+ offers regardless of what type of TV you have:

  • Android TV consoles like NVIDIA Shield TV
  • Amazon Fire TV devices
  • Chromecast
  • Apple TV
  • Xbox One
  • PlayStation 4
  • Roku streaming players
