How To Watch Disney+ on Old Philips TV with Saphi OS
Philips’ older models, which run on the Saphi operating system, do not have the Disney Plus app, as users have asked in multiple forums and on Twitter about the same problem. Philips’ Twitter handle explained the situation and provided the solution.
Disney Plus is supposed to be launched with Saphi Philips models last year, but that has yet to happen. But that doesn’t mean we can’t watch it on old Samsung models which have Saphi, particularly in the current era with so much technology.
Older Philips television models can be connected to Disney Plus via a number of streaming devices, including Firestick, Chromecast, Roku, and others. Additional screen mirroring options are also available.
Below I have provided two methods through which you can stream Disney Plus content on older Philips models. The screen mirroring method utilizing Miracast is quite user-friendly, while the other requires you to purchase an additional streaming device which is a worthy option and complete value for money in my opinion.
Method#1: Use a Third-Party Streaming Device with your Old Philips TV
Using the Chromecast with Philips TV older version
Built-in Chromecast built into most TVs, or you can get the standalone Chromecast and plug it into your TV.
The Chromecast is a device that allows you to stream music, videos, and TV shows from your phone, tablet, or computer directly to your TV.
Utilizing third-party streaming devices such as an Amazon Fire TV Stick, Roku, Chromecast, Apple TV, etc. to watch Disney Plus on Philips TV older models.
Also, you need to have a Disney Plus account in order to get access to streaming content, The DisneyPlus website gives you an easy way to create a Disney Plus account. Using a computer or laptop is easier than pressing buttons while watching TV.
- If you’re a Google Chrome user, you can open the Disney + website from your chrome browser or download the Disney + app from the Play Store (Android).
- Switch to Chromecast (HDMI input) on your Philips TV and open the Disney + app.
- Choose your Philips TV from the list of devices available in your Disney Plus app by clicking the “Broadcast” button.
Once you have done this, you can Chromecast the Disney Plus app to the Philips TV
Note: The above steps work for casting through iOS devices like iPhone and iPad.
Method #2: Mirror Your PC, or Your Android Smartphone or Tablet to Philips Smart TV Older Version
Using a computer or mobile device, you can screen mirror an older Philips TV model. Screen Mirror is an app that can be downloaded from the Google Play Store that allows you to mirror your phone on the Philips TV. Both devices can easily be connected using the app.
There you have it. If you’re a Philips Smart TV user looking forward to streaming Disney Plus on the TV, you’ve just received your answer. So go ahead and stream your favorite show using this workaround.
Although for older varients of Philips TV it can be difficult to stream Disney+ on your smartTV. But you’ve got options, like the one I have shared with you above.
This guide will work on any Philips TV, regardless of how old it is, whether it has Android, Roku, or Saphi OS built-in.
