Disney+ on the NVIDIA Shield

Unlike other gaming platforms, Disney+ support for the NVIDIA Shield applies to all versions of the device. Both Microsoft and Sony launched their fourth-generation game consoles as high-definition devices that only output at 1080p resolution. On the other hand, NVIDIA made the Shield support 4K output from the beginning. Of course, it also had the advantage of launching a decade later but who’s counting?

Because the Shield is 4K compatible, Disney+ subscribers will be able to launch all of the 4K Disney content that’s exclusive to Disney+.

Which Devices Does Disney+ Support?

In addition to supporting the Shield, PS4 and Xbox One, Disney’s developers targeted a wide range of streaming platforms for the launch of Disney+. As with the consoles, whether you can use Disney+’s 4K feature depends on your exact hardware.

In the Apple ecosystem, you’ll find apps for the iPhone, the iPod Touch, the iPad and the Apple TV.

The app for Android TV should be available on every true Android TV device, including Sony’s televisions. Other Google-based platforms with Disney+ apps include Android smartphones and tablets as well as devices based on Chromecast.

Amazon’s version of Android, the Fire TV platform, also gets a Disney+ app. Fire TV Sticks, streaming boxes and televisions will work with Disney+.

If you have a Roku-branded streaming device or a TV with Roku’s smart TV interface built-in, you’ll be able to watch Disney+.
