LG has announced today that the Disney+ app is now available on LG TV models released from 2016 through 2019, and which run the webOS platform. LG customers can now subscribe to Disney+ and start streaming movies and shows, including those from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.
Furthermore, if you purchase a new 2019 LG OLED TV from an authorized retailer before February 9th, 2020 – and are based in the US – you will also be eligible to receive a 12-month subscription to Disney. Those who buy a 2019 NanoCell TV before February 9th will be eligible for a 6-month subscription. You can learn more on these offers here.
Disney+ is integrated into LG’s webOS smart TV platform and accessed via the Disney+ icon on the LG Home Launcher. Content will include Disney’s library of film and TV titles, original films and shows, short-form content and documentaries, as well as the live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian. The Disney+ app also works with LG’s smart TV features, including the platform-wide LG universal search and ThinQ AI, and LG says further functionality will be added in the future.
“The arrival of Disney+ to the streaming marketplace is an exciting opportunity for LG,” said Sang-Woo Lee, vice president of corporate business strategy and content business at the LG Home Entertainment Company. “Because both Disney+ and LG TVs support Dolby Vision and the Dolby Atmos audio format, our customers will soon be able to enjoy the very best content as they were intended to be seen and heard.”
The Disney+ app is now available on compatible LG TVs in the United States, Canada and the Netherlands with LG customers in Australia and New Zealand to receive the service next week, and other markets to follow.
