Tried Disney+ yet? The online platform, now available in Australia, has a lot going for it. The list includes a generous library of content, original shows and movies exclusive to the streamer, a user-friendly interface and baby Yoda. And Disney+ is affordable, at only $8.99/month.
If you do decide to sign up, you'll notice that the streaming experience is fairly seamless, without major buffering issues or technical problems. Even better, Disney+ is compatible with plenty of devices, so you can watch your favourite content on small or large screens, at home or on the go.
Of course, you can access Disney+ via web browsers on PCs/Macs, but there are plenty more ways to watch. Here's the complete list to get you started:
Amazon Fire TV Stick
The Amazon Fire TV Stick is compatible with Disney+ and is very similar to Chromecast, allowing users to wirelessly stream content from mobile devices to your TV. However, it also lets you install apps like Disney+ so you can watch without your mobile device.
Type Disney+ into the search bar on your Fire TV Stick home screen, install it and log in with your Disney+ credentials. Here's more info on how to watch Disney+ on the big screen without a smart TV.
Buy Amazon Fire TV Stick from Amazon
With Amazon's Fire TV Stick, streaming movies and TV from Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, YouTube and other Amazon apps is as simple as slotting it into your TV's HDMI port and kicking back on the couch.
Chromecast is affordable and user-friendly, making it a fine choice for plenty of users who don't have a smart TV, but still want to enjoy content on the big screen.
All you need to do is have your device up and running by connecting it to your TV, then cast content from Disney+ to the TV using your smartphone as a remote. Here's a step-by-step guide that should come in handy.
Buy Google Chromecast 2 from The Good Guys
Stream movies and TV shows on the big screen in high definition quickly and easily with Google's Chromecast.
Disney+ has an iOS app for Apple devices. To get started, download it and install it from the App Store. Then, log in with your Disney+ credentials and you're good to go.
Android phones/tablets, Android TV
Similarly, Disney+ also has an app for Android devices, including smartphones, tablets and TVs running Android TV. This time around, you'll need to download it and install it from Google Play.
If you have a 4th or 5th generation Apple TV, you can download and install the Disney+ app directly to the device and stream Disney+ on the big screen. If you have an older model, you can use AirPlay to watch Disney+ on TV.
Microsoft Xbox One
To enjoy Disney+ content with an Xbox One, you will need to download the app from the Microsoft Store and install it.
You can subscribe to Disney+ directly from your console, but you might save yourself some time if you already have an account set up.

Android-based Sony smart TVs
The new streaming service works on compatible Sony smart TVs with Android TV. The Disney+ Android app can be installed from Google Play or Sony Select.
Samsung smart TVs
If you have a Samsung smart TV from 2016 to the current line-up, you should be able to install the Disney+ app with minimal hassle and start enjoying movies and shows in minutes. Here's how to get things running.

When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity.

We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
