Disney+ is here. Now you just have to figure out how to watch it.

First figure out which Disney Plus compatible devices you own.  If you have Roku, you’re in luck. Not only is Disney+ supported on many Roku Devices, but the setup is also pretty straightforward. Here’s how to get yourself situated and start binging. 

The first step is to sign up for Disney+. Signing up is straightforward. One thing to consider is if you want to just buy Disney+ for $6.99 per month or purchase a bundle that will include Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ for $12.99.
