The ROKU website is horrible especially for new users. How do I get Disney + channel on ROKU? Is it possible?
When I go to the ROKU website it says Disney + is installed but I cannot use it. I believe that I may need a subscription but when I contacted Disney they recommend that I get a Hulu box. I'm beginning to think this may be the way to go. I say this because when I contacted the ROKU people on the chat support, they did give me the Disney phone number.
They also told me that if I had a family member who already had a subscription with Disney I could use that but then they went into passwords, login and different ways to access different accounts. It all got very confusing very quickly.
In short, can the ROKU box be used to access Disney+ ? If so, are there any written instructions?
I've never heard of a "Hulu box" either. Just like there's no "Netflix box".
The question is, what country are you located in? Disney+ is available on Roku, but not in all countries. It doesn't matter if Disney+ is officially available in your country. Disney has to enable it on Roku devices on a per country basis. It's not something Roku can control, only the channel provider, which in this case is Disney.
Yes, Disney+ requires a subscription. It's not a channel that allows you any access without logging into a user account.

Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+ are all owned by the same company so they’d love to sell you a bundle of all of them. But it’s not required. (All three of these are streaming services - none of them are a device. Roku is one of the devices you can watch streaming services on.)
