Today during Disney’s earnings call it was announced that Disney+ will be coming to the Amazon Fire TV. At first, it was reported that Disney and Amazon had been fighting over advertising deals preventing Disney+ from being added to the Fire TV. Now Disney and Amazon have officially announced that Disney+ will be coming to the Amazon Fire TV.
Amazon says Disney+ will be available on Fire TV streaming devices, Fire TV Edition smart TVs, and compatible Fire Tablets starting on Tuesday, November 12th, 2019. Amazon did add that Disney+ content will be included in the Fire TV universal search.
Update: Disney+ is also coming to Samsung and LG Smart TVs.
Now at launch, the Disney+ app will be available on Roku, PS4, Fire TV, Apple TV, Android, iOS Chromecast, and Xbox. Disney has hinted that more device support will be coming soon.
The addition of Disney+ on the Amazon Fire TV means the top 3 major streaming players in the United States – Roku, Fire TV, and Apple TV – will all support Disney+. This will help make Disney+ available to even more Americans.
