Disney+ Launches on Sony Android TVs
As of today, the Disney+ application is now available on select Sony BRAVIA Android TVs in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland.
Via the application, users can access the Disney+ streaming service directly which requires a subscription.
From The Walt Disney Company, Disney+ offers more than 500 films, more than 300 series, and a slate of 26 exclusive Disney+ Originals from the company’s catalogue encompassing such signature entertainment brands as Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.
Many Sony BRAVIA Android TVs support the Dolby Vision HDR format to deliver striking highlights, deeper darks, and vibrant colours, while Dolby Atmos compatibility brings space and realism to the audio to further enhance the Disney+ experience. The Android TV with the Google Assistant Google Play Store and Chromecast built-in, offers users access to content, services and devices via its platform. With the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa enabled devices, you may cast and control videos from YouTube with Google Home or change the channel or volume with Amazon Alexa enabled devices. Apple AirPlay 2 users can stream movies, music, games and photos to their television right from their iPhone, iPad or Mac. The Apple HomeKit technology provides an easy way for users to control their television from their iPhone, iPad or Mac
Disney+ launched in Britain, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria and Switzerland with reduced picture quality to ease data volumes flowing through networks. It delayed its start in France by two weeks at the government’s request.
Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime and Facebook are, like Disney+, temporarily throttling bitrates by 25% to help carriers manage data flows without discriminating between different types of traffic.
