Why doesn’t Disney Plus function on my Roku?
Disney Plus may not be accessible on your Roku due to an outage or server maintenance. There may potentially be a fault or issue in the current version of Roku. It could be an issue with login or an internet spike. The worst-case scenario is that your system has corrupted files, necessitating a reboot.
Disney Plus not functioning on Roku: 9 solutions
1: Unplug your Roku device
Extreme measures are not usually the solution to a problem.
Occasionally, the finest solution is also the simplest one.
To begin with, you may only need to unplug your Roku device.
This is how it is done:
- Unplug your Roku device from the electrical outlet.
- Wait for sixty seconds.
- Plug your Roku device back in.
- Verify that your Disney Plus subscription is operational.
2: Check the Disney Plus server status
Occasionally, it has nothing to do with your gadget, WiFi, or television.
Instead, the issue is with the streaming application itself.
I cannot count the number of times this has occurred with Netflix.
I believed it was me, but it turns out…
Netflix experienced a server outage. Therefore, they were the issue.
Likewise, this may be your situation right now. If your Roku has ever turned off by itself, believe me, I know the sensation.
Now, how do you know that Disney Plus is experiencing a server outage?
Simple. Simply obtain Downdetector from the app store. You can also visit their website.
If Disney Plus experiences downtime or outages, you will be notified on the website.
3: Uninstall the Disney Plus channel and reinstall it
The removal of your Disney Plus channel should provide a soft reboot.
The nice aspect is that reinstalling it guarantees you have the most recent version. This is how it is done:
- Navigate to the home screen.
- Tap “Disney Plus” on the home screen.
- Press the * button on your remote control.
- Click on the remove channel option.
- Return to your Home Screen.
- Search for Disney Plus in the Search tab.
- Select Disney Plus .
- Add it to your home screen or reinstall the application.
- After that, sign in to your Disney Plus account.
If this does not resolve your issue, solution number four should be an even better solution.
4: Unsubscribe from Disney Plus.
Yea — no kidding.
Oftentimes, that is sufficient. It’s possible that your current Disney Plus subscription has a persistent bug.
No matter how many times the app is restarted.
Here is what you should do:
Cancel your subscription to Disney Plus.
This procedure is effective for individuals who have encountered Code Error 83 for more than a week.
5: Update your Roku
Now…let’s take out the big guns.
All of the aforementioned methods were simple and quick.
That was the preparatory stage. Thus, the moment has come for the major event.
Beginning with…updating Roku.
Why? Because Disney Plus can sometimes be a jerk.
Disney requires the most recent Roku version. Well, what can I say?
If it means watching Hawkeye, let’s do it. This is how it is done:
- First, determine whether there are available updates.
- Press the * button on your remote control.
- Examine for Updates
- If an Update is available, navigate to the Home menu.
- Select Settings
- Look for System and select “System”.
- Select System Update
- Select “Check Now” to determine if an update is available.
- To confirm the update, please press “OK.”
And that is all. You are now running the latest version of Roku.
However, if that fails, it is time to bring out the bleach and napalm.
Because we’re about to bomb Roku to hell and back.
6: Restart your Roku
Since Disney Plus is being obstinate, I’ll employ my secret weapon…
And a crowbar.
Let’s play the game whack-a-mole.
We must halt this broadcast due to a live, brutal crowbar assault. Folks, do not try this at home.
So then, where were we? Oh yeah.
Here’s how to restart your Roku:
- Go to the Settings menu on the Roku device.
- Select the System Tab.
- Select Restart System.
- Wait for your Roku device to reboot.
7: Remove the Roku cache and data
Cookies, cache memory, and data.
Imagine these as ants infesting your Disney Plus application or Roku device.
Obviously, you must eliminate these little pests, correct?
Here’s how to clear your Roku cache and data:
- Access the Main Menu through your remote.
- Press the Home button 5 times.
- Press the Up button, then press the Rewind button twice.
- Press the Fast Forward button twice.
Just in case the written word confuses you a bit, here’s a video to see how it’s done:
8: Do a factory reset
Looks like a crowbar is ineffective against the most magical place on Earth.
It’s time for a factory reset.
But first, what exactly does a factory reset do?
Think of it as rebooting your entire system and restoring it to its default settings.
The reason for this is that, for one, you could have corrupted files. It could also be a system failure. And sometimes, the apps in your system crash.
You’ll know a factory reset is necessary because your system’s overall performance slows down. In addition, you’ll notice app crashes frequently or glitches happening often.
Here’s how to do a factory reset:
- Go to your settings menu in your home screen.
- Go to your system menu.
- Click on advanced system settings.
- Select factory reset option.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to perform the factory reset.
- Reinstall Disney Plus.
Warning: Performing a factory reset means you’ll lose all your data. Make sure you have all your login information first. And note down all the apps you currently have. This will make it easier after the factory reset.
9: Contact Disney Plus through live chat
I’ve learned a valuable lesson today.
Bombs and crowbars don’t solve problems.
Sometimes, the most effective method is to simply contact Disney Plus.
Who knows, they might even give a free pass to Disneyland *fingers crossed*.
You can contact Disney Plus on their website. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you’ll see three options:
