Vidaa is a Linux-based smart TV operating system that was originally developed by Hisense. It is now managed by an independent company and Vidaa has started appearing in TVs from other brands including Toshiba and Loewe. Vidaa can soon close a large gap with the addition of a Disney+. The app is rolling out now to Hisense and Toshiba TVs with the latest firmware version, according to the announcement. It is not entirely clear but "lately" most likely refers to Vidaa version 4.0 or 5.0.

- "Our cooperation with The Walt Disney Company is a major milestone for our organisation," said Guy Edri, EVP of VIDAA USA. "Bringing Disney+ to the VIDAA platform globally is just the first step. We're looking forward to working with Disney on ways to expand our collaboration and opportunities to bring their full suite of streaming services to our customers in the future. Today marks not only the launch of an amazing service on a state-of-the-art platform, but a start of a long-term relationship between two companies, each a leader in its industry." Disney+ supports streaming in up to 4K Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos but it has not been confirmed if the highest streaming quality is supported on Vidaa. Disney+ is already available on most competing TV platforms including Android TV, Amazon FireTV, Android TV, and Roku.
