Disney+ App Expands To Fire TV, LG, & Samsung Smart TVs

Disney_Plus_logo_trans_1280pxDuring Disney’s fourth-quarter earnings call yesterday the company’s CEO Bob Iger revealed further great news about the expansion of Disney+ to more platforms. Most significant is the announcement there will be an app for Amazon’s Fire TV, which is a nice surprise considering the two companies had been at odds.

In addition to being accessible through the app, content from Disney+ will show up when doing an Alexa search and through the platform’s discovery algorithms. For example, search for new Disney originals like “Encore” or “The Mandalorian” and the titles will theoretically show up.

If you’re someone who bypasses the use of a streaming media player (which isn’t a bad idea except when considering the longevity of Smart TV compatibility) Disney+ will also be available through apps for LG and Samsung TVs.

The expansion of Disney+ to various platforms and devices will surely help with subscriber count. The company is expected to reach 8 million subs by the end of 2019, and twice that by the end of 2020.
