Can’t watch Disney Plus with Xfinity? Here’s 3 alternatives to watch Disney’s streaming service at a low cost

For Xfinity customers who want access to Disney Plus, the streaming service is unfortunately unavailable on the Xfinity platforms. So you won’t be able to get it on Xfinity Flex, Xfinity Stream, or even Xfinity X1.

This might put a damper on your streaming plans as the platform supports apps for other services such as Hulu and Prime Video. It can be a bit inconvenient when you can’t access and manage all your streaming services in one place.

The trouble’s mainly because of the complicated relationship between Disney and Comcast — the company that owns the Xfinity brand. And at the time of writing this post, there seems to be no intention of introducing a Disney Plus Xfinity app.

The good news is that there are some workarounds to get Disney Plus for Xfinity users — whether it’s by using a smart TV or a streaming media player. In this post, we show you some of the best workarounds to stream Disney Plus on Xfinity.

How to get Disney Plus

First, you’ll need an active Disney Plus subscription to start streaming the service’s content. As highlighted in our Disney Plus review, you can subscribe to the service for $6.99/mo. or $69.99/yr. This gives you access to thousands of movies and TV shows on-demand and ad-free. Plus, you get to watch many of the titles in 4K, which means you’ll get to see them in vivid detail and enjoy an even better streaming experience.

If you want to further expand the content offering, you even have the option to get the Disney Plus + ESPN Plus + Hulu bundle. This costs just $12.99/mo. and gives you access to live sports and the entire Hulu on-demand library in addition to Disney Plus content. Note that you’ll need to install the dedicated app for each service separately to access them.

Here’s how you can get a Disney Plus subscription:

  • Go to the official Disney Plus website.
  • Select the plan you want. Choose “Get all three” if you want the Disney Plus + ESPN Plus + Hulu bundle. Click on “Sign up for Disney+ only” if you just want a Disney Plus subscription.  
  • On the next page, enter your email address and click on the “Agree & Continue” button.
  • Create a password and click on “Continue.”
  • If you chose to subscribe to Disney Plus on its own, you’ll also need to select whether you want a monthly or an annual plan at this step of the signup process.
  • Provide your payment info. Disney gives you the option to pay either using a credit card or by PayPal.
  • Click on “Agree & Subscribe” to finish the signup process. And that’s it, you’re now subscribed to Disney Plus, and you can start streaming instantly.

Other solutions for Disney Plus on Xfinity

Although you can’t get Disney Plus directly on Xfinity, that doesn’t mean Xfinity customers can’t access the service entirely. You can even install the Disney Plus app on your smartphone or tablet and watch your favorite titles independently from your Xfinity setup. But even if you want to stream Disney Plus on Xfinity from a larger screen, you still have other workarounds.

Since there’s no Disney Plus Xfinity app, the best option is to install the service on a streaming media player. And if you use the same device to access Xfinity through the Xfinity Stream app, you can seamlessly access both services from the same place. Here are two streaming device options to let you watch Disney Plus as an Xfinity user:

Amazon Fire TV

The range of Amazon Fire TV devices supports both Disney Plus and the Xfinity Stream app. So you can use the device to seamlessly access both services and switch between them as needed. Here’s how you can get Disney Plus on the device:

  • Connect the Fire TV device to your TV.
  • Open the Home Screen on your Fire TV device.
  • Select the search option and type in Disney Plus.
  • Select the Disney Plus app from the search results.
  • Click on the “Get” button to download the app to your Fire TV device.
  • Once the installation is finished, open the app from your Home Screen.
  • Log in to Disney Plus using your credentials and start streaming.


Roku also supports Disney Plus along with a beta version of the Xfinity Stream app. So you can use the device to access both services with ease or even switch between them. Here’s how to get Disney Plus on your Roku:

  • Connect the device to your TV.
  • Press the “Home” button to access the Roku Home Screen.
  • From the menu bar at the left-hand side of the screen, select “Streaming Channels.”
  • Look for Disney Plus among the options.
  • Click on the “Add Channel” button to install the app on your Roku device.
  • Once installed, go back to your Roku Home Screen and open the Disney Plus app.
  • Log in to Disney Plus using your credentials and start streaming.

Smart TVs as an Xfinity alternative for Disney Plus

Disney Plus comes as a native app on several smart TVs, including select models of Samsung and LG TVs as well as Android-based Sony TVs. That means you can access the app right out of the box without needing to install it separately. So once you’ve signed up for a Disney Plus subscription, just find the app on your TV and log in using your credentials.

If Disney Plus doesn’t come built-in with your Android TV, follow the steps below to start streaming the service on your TV:

  • Make sure your TV is connected to the internet.
  • Open the Google Play Store on your TV.
  • Go to the search bar at the top of the screen and type in “Disney Plus” to find the app in the Play Store.
  • Choose the app from the search results.
  • Select “Install” to download Disney Plus to your smart TV.
  • Go back to your Home Screen and find the Disney Plus app.
  • Open the Disney Plus app and log in using your credentials.
  • Select the title you want to watch and start streaming.
