When Disney decided to enter the streaming wars with their service Disney Plus, I knew I had to have it. After all, I grew up watching Marvel movies and Star Wars. I knew I had to catch The Mandolorian and the newest Marvel series. I own and use a Roku device.
I was glad to learn that Disney was preparing to launch the service with it freely available on the Roku store. If you’re looking for help getting started with watching Disney Plus and all of the great original content on your preferred Roku device, you’ll find out how to do so below.
Is My Roku Device Eligible To Install Disney Plus On It?
If you have one of the recent devices that Roku has released, you likely have a compatible device for Disney Plus. Certain older devices cannot install and watch Disney Plus that start with the 2400X to the Roku 3420X.
If you have a device that is newer starting with the Roku LT, you should be able to install and watch Disney Plus on your device. You can find the updated list of compatible devices directly on the Disney Plus site.
How To Install and Watch Disney Plus On Roku:
Getting Disney Plus installed on your Roku device is a very straightforward process.
Navigate to Home > Channel Store > Search For “Disney” > and Add Channel. From there, all you will need to do is either register for a Disney Plus account or sign in with your Disney account information. You will be eligible for a free trial if you haven’t subscribed to the service before.

Why Use Roku To Watch Disney Plus?
Roku is a good platform for a lot of services. It’s one of the best you’ll find for Disney Plus. Disney offers its GroupWatch feature on the Roku platform. Meaning, you can create a watch party with your friends and family to enjoy all of the latest episodes of The Mandalorian together.
I host a WatchParty with my younger brother who loves the Star Wars universe just as much as I do. With Roku, you can access over 100 titles in 4K UHD and HDR. As long as you have a compatible Roku model like the Roku Ultra and a Dolby Vision compatible TV, you will be able to stream 4K Dolby Vision content.
This means you can experience all of the greatest Disney content in the highest possible quality and format.
What Can I Watch On Disney Plus Using My Roku?
As mentioned, you can watch all of the content that Disney Plus has to offer. You’re going to be able to sort through endless legacy Disney content and all of the new series and movies that Disney is releasing.
If you’re a big Disney fan, it’s a service that you will want to subscribe to. This is especially true considering they will be producing original content for the service that you won’t be able to find anywhere else.
