Check the Internet

Disney+ will require that you connect Samsung TV at least once to the internet in order to obtain all the information needed about the content that is on the platform, and to be able to stream the content as well. When things go wrong with your network, the app is going to crash and will not allow you to access the content that you want to watch.

  3. Wait a minimum 45 seconds, and plug the TV back in.
  4. Turn your TV back on.
