If you go to the main menu and go down to apps you can open the google play store and download it there! I came here to figure out how and then saw this and was disappointed but then went and played around and figured it out.
Disney+ is available on the Pik TV box specifically. It won't be out on Optik.
@nikonrachel Thanks for your idea submission. Disney+ is certainly an area of opportunity our content team had identified based on its popularity. So it is on our radar, but there isn't any news that we can share yet. Once we know more, we'll share it right here within this thread!
is Disney+ available on Telus OptikTV
Not currently. Disney hasn't felt it necessary to release Disney+ on standard set top boxes yet.
I'm certain Telus would announce if Disney+ becomes available on Optik due to it's popularity.
In the mean time, keep an eye on Disney's support page that lists supported devices and platforms.
Is there anything Telus can do to lobby Disney and advocate for development of the app?
Is it available now in January 2021? Please...
It won’t be available unless Disney supports the platform as was previously stated above.
Disney does what Disney wants, period. At present they have said there are no plans to make their service available on traditional cable boxes. It's almost like they know cable is outdated tech, and in decline. Disney+ is available on pretty much every other smart device anyways, including TVs.
