To watch Disney+ on your Samsung TV, you will need to have a compatible TV and a Disney+ subscription.


Disney+ is available on a range of smart TVs and streaming devices, however some older Samsung models may experience issues with compatibility. 


Fixwebnode will provide assistance and information on which Samsung TVs are compatible with Disney+ and which are not, as well as potential alternatives for older models.


Steps to watch Disney+ on a Samsung TV

1. Connect Samsung TV to WiFi

To gain access to a wireless network, you must have the Wireless Network Name (SSID) and Wireless Network Key (Password), both of which are necessary credentials.


A label is often found on most wireless routers / gateways that display the default credentials. If the credentials are not present on the label, refer to the device's documentation. 

If you had your Internet Service Provider (ISP) install the wireless router or gateway, they may have left you a setup sheet with the credentials.

In circumstances where you don't know your Wireless Network name (SSID) and Key, contact your ISP or the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of the Router for assistance.


To Connect to Wi-Fi:
  • Press Home button on your remote.
  • Select Network.
  • Select Network Settings.
  • Select Open Network Settings.
  • Select Wireless.
  • Select your Wi-Fi network name from the list.
  • If prompted, enter the Wi-Fi Password.
  • Select Done.

You are now connected to your Wi-Fi network.


To troubleshoot the issue, you can Check Other Devices if the connection was not successful. This can help determine if other devices can connect to the wireless network.

Is it probable that the router is performing correctly if the other devices connected to the wireless network are doing OK?

It is conceivable that an environmental issue may be present. Can you please grab a handheld wireless device (Such as a Smartphone, Tablet, or Laptop) and test if it is still adequately connecting to wireless in the same area ?


Should other devices nearby  to you be able to connect and you are still experiencing difficulty, you can attempt a power cycle of the device you're connecting with.

To accomplish this, simply turn it off, wait 30 seconds, and turn it back on again.


2. For Samsung TVs with Disney+ capability

For Disney+ content to be able to play on your Samsung TV, it must be HD-capable, from 2016 or newer, and running the Tizen operating system.

  • By looking at the serial number on the rear of your TV, you can see if the letters MU, NU, RU, or SU are included. This means the TV will support Disney+.
  • To download Disney+ app, navigate to the Apps section of the TV and search for it. 
  • If the Disney+ app does not appear when you search in the app store of your TV, your TV is not supported.
  • Once you have located the app and found the Disney+ icon, press "Add to Home". 
  • Once it appears on your home screen, you will be able to open the app and either sign up for a new account or log in to an existing account. 


Note: To ensure a speedier sign-up process, it is suggested that you use a computer or smartphone/tablet to create an account for Disney+, rather than relying on a TV remote.


3.  Using Media Streaming Devices

For those who don't have "smart" enabled TVs, a simple solution is to purchase a standalone media streaming hub or a streaming stick and plug it to an available HDMI slot on your TV. This way, you can watch Disney+ and enjoy the benefits of utilizing apps and features that aren't supported on your current TV.

There are numerous choices available, many of which cost less than $100.

Out of the different streaming options, the Amazon Fire Stick with Alexa Voice RemoteChromecast with Google TV, and the Roku Streaming Stick+ are the most prominent. It's ultimately your choice which to go with in relation to your budget, as they all grant access to major streaming services like Disney+, Netflix, Hulu, Crackle, and more.
