All you need to know about watching Disney Plus on your Xbox console.

Disney Plus is available on many platforms other than your smartphone. If you want to watch the streaming service on the big screen and all you have is an Xbox connected to a monitor or a TV, you need not worry. 

You’ll be happy to know that Disney Plus is supported on the Xbox One series of consoles. However, before you start watching, you’ll need to subscribe to the platform and become a member.

A Disney Plus membership is priced at $6.99 per month. You can also opt for the yearly pack that’ll cost you $69.99 for the full 12 months. Click the button below to subscribe and continue reading for how to watch Disney Plus on your Xbox console.

Once you become a Disney Plus member, you can follow the steps below to start streaming TV shows and movies.

Requirements for watching Disney Plus on Xbox

You will need any one console — Xbox One, Xbox One S, or Xbox One X — to stream Disney Plus.

For the best experience, the service recommends that you have a high-speed internet connection of at least 5Mbps for HD streaming and at least 25Mbps for 4K streaming.

If you want to watch Disney Plus in 4K, you’ll only be able to do so on the Xbox One S or One X. The regular Xbox One does not support 4K streaming.

In addition, you’ll also need to ensure you’re using high-bandwidth HDMI cables and HDCP 2.2-enabled external displays (for 4K streaming) to watch Disney Plus.

Disney Plus is available as an app on the Microsoft Store in your Xbox console. Remember to subscribe before you download because you can only sign in if you’re a member.

  • Go to the Microsoft Store on your Xbox One by pressing the home button on the controller
  • Head to the Apps section
  • Search for Disney Plus app
  • Select it and press Get to install
  • Sign in and start watching

The Disney Plus app will remain in the My games and apps tab on your Xbox.
