Everything you need to know about how to stream the Disney Plus app on PS4 and Xbox One.
It’s November 12th which means that the Disney Plus app has finally arrived in North America. Those who own a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One console can stream its wide array of movies and TV shows on either platform for a monthly or yearly fee that is more than affordable.
Disney Plus has launched in the United States, Canada and the Netherlands and it is available to stream on both PS4 and Xbox One. You can sign up for a 7-day free trial, but know afterwards that you will need to pay a monthly fee of $6.99 or a yearly subscription price of $69.99.
To download the Disney Plus app you can click the corresponding PS4 and Xbox One links, or you can instead visit the relevant digital store on your console of choice and download the app for free from the Apps section.
Once you’ve done that, you will need to register to create an account or login if you already boast a subscription.

Disney Plus is scheduled to arrive on November 12th for North America, which is heart-breaking news for all us Brits as there’s no official release date for the UK as of yet as all anyone really knows is that it’s said to arrive early 2020. With that elephant in the room addressed right away, some good news is that the subscription service will be available via app on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Martin Scorsese has recently clarified his remarks about why Marvel movies aren’t really cinema (a justification he shouldn’t have needed to provide seeing as he’s a legend of the industry), but regardless of anyone’s views on the MCU there’s no denying that Disney Plus is a wonderful offer that extends well beyond just comic book stories.
You’ll have nine seasons of The Simpsons to watch as well as 21 others to avoid, there’ll be original shows exclusive to Disney Plus such as She-Hulk and the Mandalorian, plus you’ll be able to watch original Disney classics instead of their heinous ‘live-adaptation’ remakes. And you’ll be able to watch all of them on PS4 or Xbox One.
