What devices can't I watch Disney Plus on?

Far fewer than there are compatible Disney Plus devices! But certain bits of tech haven’t yet been integrated with the Disney Plus app. And, as illustrated below, the older your device or OS, the less chance there is that it will be supported.

  • Nintendo gaming consoles
  • Samsung smart TVs running the Orsay OS
  • LG Netcast TVs
  • Roku models 2400X, 3000X, 3050X, 3100X, 2450X, 2500X, 3400X, 3420X.
  • Devices with the Linux OS
  • Mobile browser playback isn’t supported
  • Neither are browsers on smart TVs, gaming consoles, and streaming devices
  • Older Apple TV models (1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation Apple TVs). However, you can use AirPlay to get around this.

How many devices can you have Disney Plus on?

You can download the streaming service's app to as many of your devices as you want. But! A single membership will only let you stream from four devices simultaneously.

As our Disney Plus price comparison guide shows, that’s actually pretty brilliant considering the modest monthly fee ($7.99, or £7.99 in the UK, $11.99 in Canada, €8.99 in eurozone countries, and $11.99 in Australia). It's more than either Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu or HBO Max allow, yet less costly than all but Hulu. Plus, the monthly fee could potentially be split four ways...

You can also download content to up to 10 mobile devices and watch offline, so you could squeeze even more value from the platform. As long as each device has sufficient storage space, there’s the potential for large households to have 10 members watching Disney Plus films or shows offline, downloaded over a Wi-Fi connection beforehand.
