Disney+ is the latest and perhaps greatest streaming service available. The service lets you access all that classic Disney vault content, Marvel movies, and even National Geographic documentaries and specials. If you’re one of the countless cord-cutters eager to start streaming all those Disney Channel Original Movies from your childhood to see if they hold up, one of the easiest ways to do this is by utilizing your Smart TV. LG Smart TVs offer a free Disney+ app that gives you instant access. Unfortunately, a few of their models aren’t equipped for this new service.
Here’s everything you need to know about streaming Disney+ on an LG Smart TV.
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.
