Disney Plus is the app and streaming service that everyone is talking about. It’s one of the most exciting streaming services for me as a huge Marvel and Star Wars fan. As soon as they announced the new expanded Marvel universe shows were coming, I didn’t need to hear anything else.
If you have a Vizio Smart TV, you should have no problem with streaming Disney Plus due to the great support by both Disney and Vizio for their platform.
Signing Up For Disney Plus To Watch On Vizio Smart TVs
The first thing you will need to do is sign up for a Disney Plus subscription. You will want to do this either on a mobile device or on a desktop browser.
Disney Plus is available on all of the modern smart television shows released from 2016 and beyond. If you have a compatible TV, it’s as simple as installing the app for your SmartCast TV.
Go Home > Select Disney Plus to install > Log in
Do I Have To Use Smart Cast To Watch Disney Plus On My Vizio?
Not everyone wants to use the native Smart Cast app. Whether you don’t like Vizio’s user interface or you would prefer to use a streaming box or something else, you have options to choose from. If you have a capable and compatible streaming device, you can use it to download and watch Disney Plus content.
This can include Google TV, Android TV devices, Apple TV, Roku, and more.
Using AirPlay or Google Cast
can download the native app to your mobile device and then stream it directly to your TV. With an Apple device, you can use AirPlay which is built into your compatible Vizio SmartCast TV. You would simply select the AirPlay icon that shows up in the top right as you are playing the content you want to stream.
For Google Cast, you will log into your Android app and click on the Chromecast icon on the top right. Keep in mind, for this to work, your TV and mobile device need to be on the same WiFi network.
Is Signing Up For Disney Plus Worth It With a Vizio Smart Cast TV?
As long as you have a Smart Cast TV, it’s 100% worth using on your Vizio. The SmartCast version of Disney PLus will offer you everything that you could want from the service. You aren’t sacrificing any quality by opting for the built-in native version of the app. It includes 4K HDR playback that includes Dolby Vision.
It even includes Dolby Surround 5.1 audio for the titles that offer it. This means you get to experience the exclusive Disney content in its best light. Best of all, if you use the built-in SmartCast platform, you will be able to search for Disney Plus shows and movies directly from the home screen instead of having to go elsewhere.
It’s one of the best-supported streaming platforms on Vizio and it’s an easy recommendation if you are someone who enjoys Disney content.
