When Disney+ launched, it made a point of supporting the PlayStation 4 and other game consoles. Unfortunately, hardware limitations of the aging platform meant you couldn’t get all of the features Disney+ has to offer.

Disney+ isn’t just for kids. Yes, you get the Mickey Mouse Club. But you also get The Avengers, Star Wars, and more. Almost all of the family-friendly content Disney’s various production studios have ever made are now available to stream for an affordable $7 monthly subscription. That monthly rate will increase to $8 in March 2021.
Rather than charge extra for premium features like 4K streaming or downloadable content, Disney+ gives you everything with no hidden fees.

Disney+ on the PlayStation 4
Disney made Disney+ the exclusive place to stream its content in 4K, but that was a problem for PlayStation owners. Unless they had the PS4 Pro with its hardware support for 4K and HDR output, they were stuck with 1080p and HDR output.
Will My Older PlayStation Get Disney+?
It’s very unlikely that Disney will ever develop an app for the PlayStation 3. The PS3 was very popular and it was only discontinued a few years ago which still leaves a large installed base. The real limitation is the effort it takes to create a PS3 app. Sony built its third-generation console around the Cell processor, a unique architecture that was notoriously difficult to develop for.
Disney+ on the PlayStation 5
The PlayStation’s hardware limitations went away with the release of the next-generation PlayStation 5. The Disney+ works with all versions of the new platform.
Which Devices Does Disney+ Support?
The fact that the PS4 was on the list of devices supported for the Disney+ launch is an example of how broadly Disney wants its streaming service available.
In addition to the PS4, Disney developed an app for Microsoft’s Xbox One.
Several connected TV devices made it onto Disney’s priority list. Apps were developed for Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV and Chromecast devices as well as the Apple TV.
Mobile devices that run iOS or Android also have apps.
