Use the Disney Plus app to download shows and movies
If you don’t mind watching recordings on your mobile or tablet (handy for when the world starts commuting again), then you can simply download the Disney Plus app, which can be found on iOS and Android. Here are the steps you need to take in their simplest form:
- Download the Disney+ app and sign in to your account
- Click on your chosen show/film
- Click on the downward arrow icon to the right of the title. For TV shows, you can download an entire season by tapping the icon to the right of ‘Season’
- Click on ‘Downloads’ to the bottom right of the menu bar to view your download
There’s no limit on the amount of downloads you can have, providing you have enough storage on your mobile device. If you want to get rid of anything, simply going into the ‘Downloads’ section, select your programme or movie and click the check mark to the right of it.
How to watch offline on your TV
The long and the short of it - you can't. However, you can connect a device with downloaded movies and shows to your TV. For phones/tablets, you can use Google Chromecast, Apple AirPlay or other screen mirroring options to link up your screens and play the downloaded files.
How to watch offline on your computer or laptop
If you’d rather have your downloads on your computer device, then you can’t unfortunately do this directly with just the website as you can with the app. The best way is to use your tablet/mobile and then cast to a bigger screen.
