Re: Disney Plus

I read that Comcast (Xfinity) "does not support ABC Corporation" (the parent company of Disney / Disney+.   They don't get along.  So ridiculous.  We've paid a ton of money to Comcast over the past 30 years.

Re: Disney Plus

I thought a workaround for watching Hamilton on Xfinity was an Amazon Prime Video subscription, which I have, and then access Disney+. l can access Disney+ that way....can see all kinds of Disney stuff......just not Hamilton. Why?

_______
Simply, content providers don’t provide as much content as in their own streaming services, it’s their right.

Disney is the parent company of ABC, not the other way around. Them getting along or not has no consequence on how much you pay. Not all companies have to work together.

Re: Is there a way to get Disney Plus on my TV?

Why did you sign up for a service without checking if you had access to it first? As noted, it is not available through X1. If you have a Smart TV, it might be available on that. Otherwise, you will need to use a 3rd party box like a Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, or Amazon Firestick.

Disney has not given the X1 box an App to use and nothing has been announced as in the works.

Re: Disney+

There is no partnership between the two companies, you’ll have to find a different means to watch it. If you have Amazon Prime you can access it through the X1 app but from what I understand some content may not be available

Re: disney +

There is none. Disney+ is a subscription streaming service. There is no 'channel' for Disney+ or app on X1. You must use a separate streaming device and pay Disney a subscription fee (also, no more 7-day free preview.)

No Disney Plus?

Seriously, no Disney Plus on Comcast Xfinity? I just assumed we could get it. Guess I'll have to watch Hamilton on the small screen. Do any other cable services in the area offer Disney Plus?

Re: Getting Disney+

Other than an Amazon Prime subscription and accessing it that way, there’s presently no contract between Disney and Comcast (doubt there ever will be). The content through Amazon is different than accessing the Disney app directly on a mobile device.

Re: No Disney Plus?

Just get a 3rd party streaming device like Roku, Amazon Firestick, Apple TV+, etc... Then you can watch on your TV.

Re: Disney Plus

I realize that. But you would think that, since there is a pandemic going on, and considering we pay tons of money to Xfinity and that they have millions of subscribers who are stuck at home and would like to watch Hamilton, they would find some way to work with Disney. Just for this instance. You know, for the greater good of their loyal customers...who may now want defect to Verizon or use other apparatus to watch TV.

Re: Disney Plus

Why is the onus on Comcast to provide Disney, they have 10’s of thousands of offerings On Demand. Why didn’t Disney make their service free through the pandemic? You’ll never see those 2 companies partner up, especially for one movie. Be a consumer, do what’s right for you.

How exactly via the Amazon Prime app on X1 do I access Disney + content?

Not without one of the devices that you listed because Disney is a streaming service. Not available through Comcast

There’s nothing to debate, the 2 companies don’t work together and don’t want to and don’t have to.

a Google search seems to show you have to subscribe through Amazon to the disney+ service to use it there. No one has reported their Disney+ works on the X1 nor Flex so far.

Re: No Disney Plus?

Disney will eventually force Comcast to add the app. Otherwise they will pull ABC, Disney, ESPN networks.

ey Re: Disney + app

You can watch it if you have the new "Flex" device. Their answer to Roku and Firestick. But if you have one of those, you don't need the Flex device.  I remember how long it took for Hulu to get on Xfinity.  By the way, if you have Hulu, you an merge with it with Disney+ since they basically own Hulu. But you still need the Flex device. Just wait it will happen.

Re: Disney Plus on Xfinity

Yes XFinity did drop Starz which I was disappointed. On the bright side they did ad Hulu. I was waiting for that. You can get Disney+ if you have Hulu already. But I think you need their new device called "Flex".  While you do pay for the devie like $5 a month, it is a free internet service. It is their answer to streaming devices like Roku or Firestick. And if you already have one of those you can watch Disney+.

As for when they will add Disney+, it is up to Disney. They already own a bunch of other channels. Disney doesn't have their own cable company so they will need to go beyond streaming from the internet devices and go to a wider platform to satisfy their viewers. I know a lot of people have Disney+ for this reason: Exclusive content like The Mandalorian and other great shows. I would jump at getting it now before they go on the XFinity platform, because they (Disney) will raise the price. Oh, and Comcast may raise their price too. For now, you can use the Roku, Firestick or stream it from your other internet devices. Most people have more updated tvs that allow casting from your device. XFinity has this feature now.

Re: Disney + app for Xfinity???

And now if you have Hulu you can get Disney+, but you have to have the Flex device. XFinity's answer to the problem, which is $5 a month for the device, but supposedly a free internet service. For now.

Re: Disney Plus

You need Disney+ for that.  A different app for streaming you have to subscribe to.

Re: No Disney Plus?

Disney cannot force Xfinity to do anything.  It's a negotiation for a contract.
