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.

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.
