How to Watch Disney Plus on Unsupported Hisense smart TVs

If you have an older Hisense smart TV that has no support for the Disney+ app, you can follow the three different methods that we have listed below.

Connect Streaming Sticks or Streaming Boxes

No matter what OS your TV is running or how old it is, a streaming stick is a great way to get access to the latest apps and services for a minimal cost. There are devices such as the Apple TV, Roku Streaming Stick, Amazon FireStick, or Google Chromecast. When you purchase any one of the above-mentioned devices, simply connect it to your TV’s HDMI input port and have it powered from a power source.

Since such devices are always updated to their latest software versions and have support for the Disney+ app, you can download and watch your favorite shows and movies right away.

Cast Disney+ from your Mobile Device

The second way to watch Disney+ on your unsupported Hisense smart TV is by simply using the wireless cast option. This is the best way to watch content on your TV if your TV is not supported or even if the app isn’t available on your Tv’s app store. While this feature works perfectly on any Android device, in the case of an iOS device, your TV needs to have Apple AirPlay 2 support. Or else, download an app on your TV that casts your iOS device to the Hisense TV.

  1. Connect your mobile device and your Hisense TV to the same WiFi network.
  2. Now, download the Disney+ app on your Android or iOS device. It’s free to download.
  3. Launch the app on your device and sign in with your account details.
  4. Simply select the movie or TV show that you want to watch.
  5. Tap on the cast icon or the Appel AirPlay icon at the top of the app.
  6. Your device will begin to search for a wireless display on the WiFi network.
  7. When you find your TV, select it. You should now be able to watch your Disney+ content on your unsupported Hisense TV.

Use your Gaming Console

If you are someone that has an Xbox or a PlayStation console connected to your Hisense TV, then watching Disney Plus is super simple and easy. All you need to do is download the Disney+ app on your gaming console and simply log in to stream your favorite TV shows and movies. You do not have to worry about your Hisense smart TV supporting the app or not or for that matter what OS it is running on.


And this is how you can watch Disney Plus on your Hisense Smart TV. Whether the app is supported or not by your smart TV, there are ways that you can follow to stream its content right away. All of the methods are simple and very easy. In fact, these methods can be used for almost any other app that you plan to stream on your Hisense smart TV.
