Is my LG Smart TV compatible with Disney+?

The short answer is: yes, most likely. If your LG Smart TV falls under this criteria, it’s compatible with Disney Plus.

If you own a model from 2016 or later running Web OS 3.0 or later, congrats, your TV is Disney+ ready. Sadly, neither the built-in browser or the outdated NetCast OS will work with Disney Plus.
