If you have Comcast and you want to watch Disney’s new Disney Plus streaming service on it, you are in luck (if you have an eligible device). Not every device is eligible to install and use Disney Plus on it. Here is the information you need to know about Disney Plus and how to get it working on Xfinity.
What Comcast Devices Is It Available On?
If you want to install and watch Disney Plus on your Comcast devices, you are going to need specific models to do so. Currently, you are only able to install the Disney Plus app on the Xfinity X1 and the Xfinity Flex. Therefore, if you have any of the older boxes for your Comcast service, you will need to exchange them for one that is compatible.
Here is how to activate Disney Plus with Fios.
How To Watch Disney Plus On Your Xfinity X1 or Xfinity Flex?
- Go ‘Home’ by pressing the Xfinity button on your Comcast remote.
- Navigate and select ‘Apps’ or use the voice remote.
- Type or Say ‘Disney Plus.’
- Sign up or log in.
At this point, you will either need to log in to your existing Disney Plus account or you will be tasked with creating a new one. It will ask you to complete the signup process on your mobile device or computer. Once you finish, you will be able to begin watching your favorite content on your Comcast Xfinity box.
Can I Be Billed Through Comcast?
This is something that you might want to make things more convenient with your billing. Unfortunately, if you have Comcast, you are not able to sign up directly through Comcast. You will need to sign up by launching the app either on your Comcast device, another device, or a browser.
How Much Is Disney Plus?
You are going to be paying what the service costs. You can either pay for Disney Plus only for $7.99 per month or opt for the Disney Bundle that packs in Hulu, Disney Plus, and ESPN Plus starting at $14 per month.
Will I Be Able To Watch Disney Plus Content In The Best Quality?
You are not going to be able to watch Disney Plus content in 4K using your Xfinity box. However, you will be able to watch it in high definition. This is not due to the technical limitations of the box, but rather the Disney Plus service. They don’t offer 4K streaming with any Comcast-provided boxes.
Here is how you activate Disney Plus across multiple devices.
However, you could always opt to get a streaming box or use another 4K-enabled device if you want to get the most out of your Disney Plus service.
Is Signing Up For Disney Plus Worth It?
With Disney pouring millions into its streaming service, it’s one of the best values in the marketplace. It offers endless amounts of exclusive Marvel content, Star Wars content, and more.
This makes it a good service not only for children but adults, as well. If you are looking to add to your subscriptions, Disney Plus is certainly one to consider. If you’re like me, it’s a must-have because I am obsessed with all things Marvel and I needed to see the new exclusive series they are coming out with.
