Last week during the latest Walt Disney Company investors call, CEO Bob Iger announced:
“We’re pleased to announce partnerships with Amazon Fire [TV], LG, and Samsung devices.”
This means that Amazon devices such as the Fire Stick and Fire Tablets will be supported, along with LG and Samsung Smart TV’s.
With all of these devices, it’s important to note that older models may not be compatible.
On November 12th, you will simply need to go into your device’s “App” store and search for Disney+, then simply download the app and either log in if you’ve already signed up or sign up for a new subscription.
