Best answer: Yes, Disney has reached an agreement with Samsung to distribute Disney+ on its smart TVs for the November 12 launch, but we’re not sure which exact Samsung TV models will be supported. For TVs that are not, there’s always the Chromecast.
- Marvel on demand: Disney+ (From $7/mo at Disney+)
- Cast away: Chromecast ($35 at Amazon)
Not just yet
When Disney+ launches on Nov. 12, 2019, it will be available in many places. Disney announced on its November Investor Call that it had reached an agreement with Samsung to carry Disney+ on its smart TVs. A Disney+ representative confirmed that Disney+ would be available on Samsung TVs on Day One, but couldn’t say exactly which model series/years would see the Disney+ app and which ones wouldn’t.
