How to Sign-Up & Stream Disney Plus on VIZIO Smart TVs

Disney+ is now available meaning that you can watch all your favorite Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, Disney Channel, and National Geographic movies for just $6.99 a month ($70 a year).

To start, there is no native VIZIO SmartCast App for Disney+. But don’t despair, if you have a 2016, 2017, 2018, or 2019 VIZIO SmartCast TV, you can still stream Disney+ to your television.

To do so, you will need to make sure you’re on the latest firmware, as it is only supported using AirPlay 2. While the TVs also support Google Cast, currently the firmware is too outdated to stream Disney+, and won’t be updated until next year.

If you have a compatible TV and you don’t see AirPlay as an option, make sure you update to the latest VIZIO SmartCast firmware
