The PlayStation 4 has been one of the defining consoles of a generation, selling over 100 million units.
While its gaming capabilities are rightly revered, it’s equally adept as a home entertainment system. Sony has typically been quick to add streaming services as soon as it’s possible, with the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and BBC iPlayer having been available for a number of years.
With Disney Plus finally in the UK more than five months after initial release, there has been plenty of time to prepare an app optimised for the PS4. Here’s how you can start watching in a matter of minutes.
How to get Disney Plus on PS4
You will need to sign up for Disney+ account before you open the app, so we’d recommend sorting that out on a mobile device or PC beforehand. After a 7-day free trial, it’s available for £5.99/$6.99 per month or £59.99/$69.99 for a whole year.
Once you’ve got that sorted, the process is incredibly simple:
- From the PS4 home screen, scroll across to the TV & Video folder
- Once you open this, the Disney+ app should be there marked as ‘New’
- Select this and there should be an option to install it on your console, provided you have enough free space
- Once the download has completed, open the app and sign in to start watching
That’s all well and good, but you might still be wondering what’s actually available on Disney+. The good news is that there’s a huge array of content, and we’ve picked out the best TV shows and best movies you can watch right now. You can also read about how to get Disney+ on Sky Q, Now TV, Fire TV, Roku and Apple TV.
The addition of a dedicated Disney Plus app could be another string to the bow of the upcoming PS5.
