How to Download Shows to Watch Later
One other great feature of Disney Plus is that you can download shows to watch later, so if you’re sitting at home on your wifi, you can download shows to watch when you won’t have an internet connection.
That means you can download shows right to your Apple TV and have them available on your device instead of having to use your internet connection every time you want to watch them.
This is good to utilize if you want to download your shows now (when you’re kids are not gaming or using the internet) to watch later.
To do so, browse to whatever show you want to download, and next to the Play button, you’ll find a download arrow icon. Click on that icon, and your content will begin downloading. It has a circular progress bar, so keep an eye on that before you plan to take your device away from an internet connection. Make sure it’s downloaded completely before leaving your house!
