The Disney+ app has been approved for Philips Android TVs in Europe and is now available in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, France, the UK and Ireland, in addition to Netherlands.
Disney+ for Philips TVs
The Disney+ app was already available as an app for Google's Android TV platform but it had not been approved for Philips Android TVs in the European countries that Disney+ launched in recently.
TP Vision, the company responsible for Philips TVs in Europe, has announced that the Disney+ app is now available for Philips Android TVs. It will come pre-installed on 2020 models whereas owners of Philips Android TVs from 2019 and earlier can find the app in the Google Play store.
- "The Disney+ application is now available on a broad range of Philips Android TVs – with their unique immersive Ambilight technology – in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, France, the UK and Ireland. The service has been already available and very successful in the Netherlands since autumn 2019," the company said.
