Not only does $6.99 a month get you Disney Plus's vast library of shows and movies, it gets you much of that content in ultra-high definition 4K resolution. At that image quality, you'll be able to see every falling snowflake in "Frozen." Here's what you need to know about streaming Disney Plus in 4K resolution. Check out the products mentioned in this article: Disney+ Monthly Subscription (From $6.99 at Disney+) Roku Streaming Stick+ (From $49.99 at Target) Roku Ultra (From $79.00 at Walmart) Google Chromecast Ultra (From $69.00 at Target) Apple TV 4k (From $169.00 at Walmart) Amazon Fire TV Cube (From $119.99 at Amazon) LG 65-inch C9 4K TV (From $2,199.99 at Best Buy) How to stream Disney Plus in 4K Right now, among the content available in 4K from Disney Plus are all the "Star Wars" films, all of Pixar's films, and many Disney hits like "The Lion King." Not all Disney Plus programs are available in 4K. If they are, you'll see an "HD" label on the program's details page. Once you begin streaming this movie or show, it'll default to the highest resolution your system can handle.
However, you'll need to be using devices compatible with 4K streaming. Most recent smart TVs can handle 4K, but if you're not sure about your current setup, you should do some research online. You'll also need to have a streaming device that can handle 4K. Some of these devices include:
Roku Streaming Stick+ Roku Ultra Apple TV 4K Chromecast Ultra Amazon Fire TV Cube
You'll also need a decent internet connection, since 4K resolution can be an internet hog. Disney doesn't offer any exact goal you should be shooting for, but an internet speed of at least 25 megabits per second should be enough.
