Disney’s streaming service was long-anticipated, and it finally arrived last November in the USA, alongside the UK and other regions in March of this year.

With some great documentaries such as ‘Howard’ and exclusive shows like ‘The Mandalorian’ on the service, it’s been released on almost every device known this year.

But of course, questions still linger as to whether it will be coming to the new generation of consoles.

With that, lets look into whether it will be coming at the day of the PS5 launching.

When will Disney+ be available?

As confirmed in a blog post by Sony, Disney+ will be available at the PS5's release, while also appearing as a button on its new Media Remote.

With the console launching from November 12th, Disney will want their app to be available on as many devices as possible, especially as the second season of ‘The Mandalorian’ will be premiering weekly episodes throughout November and the end of October.

We suspect it will be by December at the latest, with 4K resolution as standard. This is the way.

How can Disney+ be downloaded?

We're hoping that given Disney+ comes as a button on the Media Remote that it could come already pre-installed on the PS5. However, we can't be sure about this, but we'd at least expect that the button would take you to the Disney+ download page.

If you don't buy the Media Remote, you'll no longer have to navigate through the PlayStation Store's App section to download Disney+ on November 12.

Instead, you'll use the new Media space to navigate between and install your desired streaming or media apps, all while using the new Control Centre to skip between apps, shows, or music much easier than before.
