My cousin bought a new LG C3 Series OLED Smart TV. Being a Marvel fan, he wished to watch the latest episodes of Loki on LG Smart TV using the Disney+ app. But, he found that the Disney+ app was not pre-installed on his TV. To help him out, I have prepared an article to get Disney Plus on LG Smart TV.
Disney Plus is available in the LG Content Store for LG Smart TVs (2016-2023) running webOS 3.0 and above. So, you can directly install the Disney+ app.
If you have an older LG TV, use a web browser to stream Disney+ through its official website. The Disney+ app also supports Chromecast and AirPlay. So, you can wirelessly stream Disney+ on LG TV using an Android and iPhone.
