Virgin Media Disney Plus

Hi is there any update on Disney Plus working with Virgin boxes? As there are finally some shows i want to watch on Disney Plus was thinking of getting it - currently I would have to get a firestick or similar. Is Virgin about to roll out an app or do I have to buy some 3rd party thing to get it going? I'd hate to do that and then a week later we get an app. Thanks

Re: Virgin Media Disney Plus

It's not going to be the answer you want to hear, but the nature of the beast with new app & service launches such as D+, is that they're rarely (if ever) announced before they're live.

It could be due to launch tomorrow, and we're unlikely to find out before tomorrow.

Re: Virgin Media Disney Plus

Hi RayTango, 

Thanks for your post and questions surrounding Disney+.

There is no news on if or when this is coming to Virgin but as mentioned by japitts, it would only be announced a few days before if anything. 

Do you have a smart TV? If so you can usually download the app to that and will save you buying any third party equipment 🙂

If and when we have any news, we shall let you know. 

Thanks,

Thanks for that - alas it's a Panasonic so it's not able to load the Disney App I don't think

Re: Virgin Media Disney Plus

I think you can watch Disney plus via a browser, so if you can get chrome or Firefox on your TV you may be able to do it that way

Re: Virgin Media Disney Plus

If you are desperate you can get the Disney+ app on various devices including streaming sticks from Roku, Apple and Amazon. I signed up for the free trial using the app on my Fire TV stick, it worked well but I didn't subscribe as I found nothing of interest.
