When you power up your Samsung TV, the first thing you’ll need is the remote. Not your cable or satellite remote, but the remote shipped with your TV. Once you have it and your TV is connected to the internet, follow these steps:

  • Open your menu using the Home button.
  • Navigate over to a bottom bar option marked Apps, then select it.
  • Open the search option and type in Disney Plus.
  • Head to the Disney Plus icon and select it. You’ll be prompted to install it.

Once you’ve downloaded Disney Plus, you can also choose to add it to your home screen. If you use it frequently, the app should stay in your Recents tab for faster access. Note that some sets use slightly different interfaces, so there might be variations in options and/or the process.

Unfortunately, Samsung hasn’t brought Disney Plus to TVs older than 2016, so you may have to turn to a Roku or Chromecast device in those cases.

The first time you dive into Disney Plus, you’ll be prompted to sign in or sign up. Follow the on-screen instructions if you still need to set up an account. If you have an account, follow these steps instead:

  • Enter the email address associated with your account.
  • Type in your password.
  • Choose your profile from the list of options and start streaming.

You can also log in with an eight-digit code on your mobile device. Once you follow the correct URL, you may be prompted to re-enter your email address and password, and you’ll be good to go.
