How do I Watch Disney Plus on a Sharp Smart TV?

Sharp has announced that it will not provide Disney Plus on its older smart TVs. However, this does not mean that you cannot watch Disney Plus on a Sharp Smart TV. Disney Plus can still be installed directly, but only on one Sharp TV model. Which is Sharp Aquos. This is possible because this Smart TV is running Android OS.

  1. Go to the Google Play store.
  2. In the search bar, type in “Disney Plus.”
  3. Click on the Disney Plus icon.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to download and install Disney Plus
  5. If you get a pop-up box that asks you to use your device’s multimedia and more, select the OK button to accept it.
