The DisneyNow App

Disney’s excellent DisneyNow app gives you an easy way to watch live and on-demand Disney content on a wide variety of different TV devices. Once you unlock the app, your kids will be able to access all kinds of Disney content, including games, TV shows, music, movies, live TV streams and more.

Another benefit of the app is that you can set up unique profiles for each of your kids. If you set up your younger kids for Disney Junior mode, they won’t be able to view content that may be more appropriate for older kids.

However, there’s a catch: you have to sign up with a TV provider to use it. Fortunately, all but one of the streaming services listed above will unlock DisneyNow. If you sign up with DirecTV Now, YouTube TV, PlayStation Vue or Hulu with Live TV, your kids will be able to access DisneyNow. For some reason, DisneyNow is not compatible with Sling TV.

DisneyNow’s iOS, Android and Amazon Fire apps will let your kids enjoy Disney content on a wide variety of smartphones and tablets. Other support TV devices include Roku, Chromecast and Apple TV.

  • Living room devices: Apple TV, Chromecast and Roku.
  • Smart TVs and Blu-ray players: None.
  • Mobile devices and tablets: Amazon Fire, Android and iOS.
  • Game consoles: None.
  • Desktop browsers: Chrome and Safari.
