Is the Disney Plus App Free?
While the Disney Plus app, itself, is 100% free to download, you do need an active Disney+ subscription to stream movies with it. If you’re not sure whether or not it’s worth having a subscription, you can always download the app and signup for a free 7-day trial. This will grant you free access for 7 days, but unfortunately, you’ll have to shell out $6.99/month after that to continue watching.
Can You Watch Disney Plus in 4K on PS4?
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 PlayStation 4 users: you’ll need a PS4 Pro to stream in 4K resolution. Unfortunately, the standard/original PS4 and PS4 Slim won’t allow you to stream Disney Plus in 4K.
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 PS4.
When Did Disney+ Launch on PS4?
Disney Plus launched on the PlayStation 4 in North America on November 12, 2019 at 6:00AM EST.
As far as the rest of the world is concerned, Disney+ will launch in Europe on March 31, 2020.
How Much Does Disney Plus Cost ?
You’ll need to purchase a Disney Plus subscription for either $6.99/month or $69.99/year. There’s also a Disney Plus bundle available that adds Hulu and ESPN+ for a total of $12.99/month, as well as a 7-day free trial.
After you’ve subscribed to Disney Plus, you’ll then use your credentials to log into the Disney Plus app on your PS4 or PS4 Pro to start streaming.
What Shows and Movies Are Available to Watch on Disney Plus?
There are over 900 shows and movies available to stream on Disney Plus with your PS4.
Some highlights include all of the Star Wars films through The Force Awakens, great classic Disney movies like Moana, Coco, and Mulan, some awesome animated comic book series like X-Men and The Incredible Hulk series, and more.

Will Disney Plus Be Available on PS5 When it Launches?
It’s currently unknown whether or not the next PlayStation console, the PS5, will have a dedicated Disney Plus app available when it launches later this year. I’ll speculate that a dedicated app will be available at launch, but that would be just pure speculation until we know more about the PS5 launch plans.
