The Disney+ app for PS5 finally supports 4K and HDR

The latest Disney+ app for PlayStation 5 is finally streaming in 4K HDR, Disney has announced. Once installed, you can watch supported Disney content, including Marvel and Star Wars movies and TV shows, in UltraHD and HDR10. Previously, the app was a simple port from the PS4, limited to 1080p resolution.

“An important part of our global expansion strategy is to meet consumers wherever they are,” said Disney’s EVP of Product for Streaming. “The ability to support 4K HDR video streaming on the platform will also enhance the viewing experience for fans.”

That’s certainly true, but Disney has lasted long enough – its main streaming rivals Netflix, HBO Max and Prime Video have all been offering 4K playback on the PS5 for a while.

While 4K HDR10 is nice, PS5 doesn’t support the vastly superior Dolby Vision format, nor can it handle Dolby Atmos audio (except for Blu-rays). More importantly, using the PS5 (or Xbox Series X) to stream is a waste of power – it draws around 70 watts, while the latest Google Chromecast, Roku, or Apple TV devices only use 3-6 watts. In any case, you can now download the new PS5 Disney+ app from the Media tab on the PS5 home screen.
