Disney and Comcast promised to launch this in 1Q2021 and, with only a few days to spare, they have now finally started the rollout!
Now, the waiting begins (again) for us...
I bought a Nvidia SHIELD TV when I had the older Nextbox 2 PVR.
I just switched to Ignite TV, and was happy to see Netflix, YouTube and Prime Video available as Ignite TV apps.
Hopefully Disney+ will be available on Ignite TV soon, but until then I can also access all apps on SHIELD TV.
The Disney+ app has been available on the X1 platform for over two months now but I still don't see any signs of it coming to Ignite TV. (The "Disney+" voice command returns search results for Disney content. When Rogers starts testing the app internally, I would expect to see an APPS-04154 error.)
FYI, Comcast now has a Disney+ info page: https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/disney-plus-on-x1-flex
One thing that surprised me is their app cannot stream 4K content; only HD. I don't know why.
2021, over a year into the pandemic and still no Disney+ on Rogers... sad. They need to push Disney harder to get integration and they'd lose less customers to Bell.
Rogers has very little clout when dealing with Disney. At least the application is now available for the platform, but Rogers still needs to make a deal.
I don't get those complaining or saying how it's sad because it's been over a year, or that Rogers really needs to get on it! Rogers already has struck deals with Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Tubi, Amazon Prime Music and several other streaming services! Disney+ is the newest kid on the block compared to the other big streaming platforms and for goodness sake, only came out on November 2019! Give me a break all you complainers! If Bell or some other telecom here in Canada has already struck a deal, and if you NEED Disney+ access via your IPTV service, then go with the other telecom. But if instead, like the rest of us, you're able to wait the little bit of extra time it might take Rogers to strike the deals they need to, and in the meanwhile, use Netflix and Prime Video and whatever other smaller services they have, then just do that and stop complaining. Or, third option: stop calling the fact that the easiest route you'd like to take to access your Disney+ subscription not being available sad, and just buy a cord to hook up your laptop to the TV or cast from your phone or use the "half dozen" other connection methods our technology allows us these days.
