We are just a little over three months away from the launch of Disney’s streaming service Disney+ and with the company’s upcoming D23 Expo this week, we are sure to get a lot more information on this service. However, it has now been revealed which devices will support Disney+ come launch time.
According to Disney, these are are the list of devices that will indeed support Disney+:
- Web browsers
- iPads, iPhones, Apple TV
- Android mobile devices
- Xbox One
- PlayStation 4
- Roku players, Roku TV
It’s a pretty comprehensive list, that should support the majority of people looking to subscribe to the service. That said, one notable omission from this list is Amazon and their Fire tablets and Fire TV devices. It is not known if this something Disney plans to add in the future or not.
Disney+ will be made available to audiences in the U.S. on November 12, 2019, and will cost $6.99 per month (or $69.99 per year). Canada and the Netherlands will also have access to the service on the 12th. In Canada, the service will cost $8.99 (Canadian) per month (or $89.99 per year), and in the Netherlands, the price will be €6.99 per month (or €69.99 per year).

Those attending this year’s D23 Expo will be among those lucky few to experience the streaming service before anyone else. The showcase will be taking place on Friday, August 23 (at 15:30 in Hall D23, for those attending).
Along with Disney+, Hulu and ESPN will be offered as a bundle for streamers.
