#1 – Open the App Menu

The Disney Plus app is located in Samsung’s app store so the first thing you need to do is open the app menu. You can open the app menu and then use the magnifying glass button on your remote to open the search bar.

In the search bar, type in Disney Plus. Keep in mind that if you can’t find the app under this name, try typing in Disney+. It’s worth mentioning that you can do this by using a remote, or you can also use physical buttons located underneath Samsung’s center logo.

#3 – Adding the Disney Plus App to the Home Screen

We highly recommend adding the Disney Plus app to the home screen for easy access anytime you want to stream content from the app. You can add Disney Plus on the home screen by going to the Settings menu from the Apps menu. The Settings icon is located in the upper right corner of the screen. There you’ll find a setting labeled “Add to Home Screen.”

This will add your app to the home screen and allow you to select the apps you want to display on the main home screen for easy access.

It’s also worth noting that before the app gets its official icon, it goes through a series of default icons set by Samsung. These app icons are used to notify you when the app is downloading when the app is installed, needs to be updated, has a password, or when it supports the Smart View feature. Once you perform an action after seeing one of these icons on your app, the app icon will revert to the official icon.

Why Can’t You Find Disney Plus on a Samsung TV?

You may not find Disney Plus among the apps available for download on a Samsung TV. If this is the case, chances are you have a slightly older Samsung TV that doesn’t support Disney Plus. Samsung TVs after 2016 support Disney Plus, while models before this production year don’t support this app.

If you still want to enjoy Disney Plus on your TV, there is a solution. You need a third-party streaming device that is compatible with Disney Plus, such as Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Playstation, Roku, Chromecast, or another similar device. With such a device, you can download the app and stream content from it without relying on the smart interface and features of the TV, but instead relying on the features of the third-party provider. Even though this comes at an additional cost, it’s a good solution for those who are still using an older Samsung TV that still has a lot to offer.


Installing a Disney Plus app on Samsung TV is as easy as installing any other app. You just need to know where to look for the app, how to complete the download and installation process, and where to find the app once it’s installed on your smartphone TV. It’s also worth taking a minute or two to learn how to add the app to your home screen if you plan to use it frequently.

This can save you a lot of time, as you won’t have to relaunch the app every time you want to use it to stream content.
