Then all you need to do is plug the Chromecast into any available HDMI slot on your TV, set it up and download the app on your phone or tablet. There will then be a little Chromecast symbol on your Disney Plus app which you simply press when watching videos and like magic it will appear on your TV.
Option 3 – Using a gaming console

All you need to do to watch Disney Plus on your TV using your PlayStation 4 or Xbox is to download the App on either of the devices, sign into Disney Plus and select any of the videos there.
Option 4 – Plug in your laptop or PC into your TV
If you have a laptop that has HDMI out port on it, then what you will want to do is get a spare HDMI cable you might have laying around or purchase one from Amazon.

Option 6 – Firestick TV
The Firestick TV works in a similar way to a Android TV box does as it will basically turn any TV into a smart TV as long as you have a spare HDMI slot to plug it in there. Disney Plus is listed as one of the available apps on the Firestick TV so all you will need to do if you have one is to add the app to your Firestick TV and you should be able to start watching videos in the same way you would watch Netflix or any other app on the device.
