Is Disney Plus on PS4 yet?
If you own a PS4 then you’ll be glad to know that yes, you can watch Disney Plus. However, if you’ve got a PS3 then unfortunately Disney Plus isn’t currently available on your console, and it’s unlikely that will change.
Fortunately for PS4 users, the installation process is pretty straightforward. So even if you’re a parent looking to surprise your kids with a Disney Plus subscription, and you’re unfamiliar with using a PS4, you won’t have any difficulty.
How to install Disney Plus on PS4
The installation process is simple, but if you’ve not got an account already you might prefer to sign up to Disney Plus using a computer or laptop, because typing out email addresses, passwords, and credit card information can be frustrating on gaming consoles.
Once you’ve got an account with Disney Plus, start up your PS4 and head to the PlayStation Store, which is the furthest left, and push the X button.
Once you’re in, push Up and then Right to highlight the search function and push X again. Now you’ll be presented with a keyboard, and if you type ‘Disney’ you’ll see the Disney Plus app appear on the right-hand side.
Keep pushing Right until the keyboard disappears and Disney Plus is highlighted, then push X and the app’s page will come up. The Download button should be highlighted automatically, so push X again to download.
It shouldn’t take long to install the app, but this can vary depending on your internet speed. Once it’s downloaded, simply push Start and log in with your account details. Simple.
