Disney+ on the PlayStation 4
Disney is making Disney+ the exclusive place to stream its content in 4K. What that means to PlayStation owners is that they need to have the PS4 Pro in order to take full advantage of Disney+. Only the PS4 Pro has the hardware to support 4K and HDR output. The standard PS4 only supports 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.
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. There are even hints that it might develop an app for the Nintendo Switch.
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.
