Watch Disney Plus in 4K on Xbox One

Of course, if you’re shelling out a few bucks for Disney Plus, you’re going to want to get the most out of it that you can. So, you should plan on utilizing 4K streaming, which is offered with Disney Plus.

However, there is a major caveat for Xbox One users: you’ll need an Xbox One X or Xbox One S to stream in 4K resolution. The launch Xbox One version will not play in 4K. Sorry.

You’ll also need to have an internet connection of at least 25 Mbps, so you might want to check your internet connection speed if you don’t currently know what your connection speed is to see if you’ll be able to stream Disney Plus in 4K on your Xbox One.
