Disney Plus has now come to the UK and most of Europe, ending the months-long wait that UK viewers have had to sit through without their precious Star Wars movies, Marvel movies, classic Disney films, Pixar titles, and (of course) The Mandalorian.

But if you're stuck with a television that can't load up Disney Plus, a streaming stick can offer an easy and affordable way to get the streaming service on your television display.

Why wouldn't you be able to load up Disney Plus? Smart TVs made before 2016 generally aren't compatible with the app's code – while those of you still clinging onto ancient TVs (those without any smart features or online streaming capabilities) simply don't have the software needed.

Smart Tv and Disney +. Jump to solution. All the other Apps within the Samsung Smart Tv work just fine except for the Disney Plus app. Could this be the case? If yes what do I do?

There are a number of different streaming stick models to consider.

First, there's Amazon's range of streaming sticks: the Fire TV Stick and Fire TV Stick 4K. These sleek streamers are still brilliantly cheap, with only a small price markup for the 4K HDR model, which enables you to stream in even higher quality – if you're using it on a 4K TV. (If you only have an HD TV, the regular Fire TV Stick will do you fine.) You'll get both Netflix and Amazon Prime, as well as Disney Plus on these streamers – with an excellent smart TV interface, and an Alexa remote for some limited voice commands – though you can find out more in our Amazon Fire TV Stick review.

There's also the Google Chromecast, which offers a huge number of streaming apps, and the ability to conveniently cast video content from your Android tablet or smartphone. Like the Fire TV Sticks, there's a budget HD option and more premium 4K HDR streamer (Chromecast Ultra). You won't get Amazon Prime Video, though Disney Plus is very much available on the device.

Roku streaming devices also boast a brilliantly simple OS and Disney Plus support, whether you're using the budget Roku Express (HD only) or Roku Streaming Stick+ (4K HDR).
