Can I watch Disney+ on my Xbox?

First, you're going to want to sign up for Disney+, as you won't have much luck completing any of the following steps without a login. Then, turn your Xbox on, sign into your Xbox Live profile and hit the Y Button to bring up the search module.

That's where you can type in 'Disney Plus' or 'Disney+', or probably just Disney, and you'll see it in the search results. 

Click A when you see the streaming channel, and this will take you to the Microsoft Store.

Then, click GET and push the A Button, and Disney+ should begin to download. When the download completes, you'll get a notification at the bottom of the screen informing you that you can access the app and enjoy all of its amazing content.

When that happens, click on through by holding down the middle Xbox button on your controller to trigger the app. Then, sign into Disney+ using the credentials you got upon subscribing to the service, and voila!

Now you have access to hundreds of films and thousands of TV shows spanning the Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, NatGeo, and obviously Disney franchises.

Plus, if you're using an Xbox One X or an Xbox One S, you'll be able to stream all of this content in 4K resolution, which means you'll feel like you're in the African desert when  you binge some National Geographic.

How much does Disney+ cost?

Disney+ subscriptions are available for $6.99/month or $69.99 a year, and most attractively of all, Disney is also offering a bundle that includes a Hulu and ESPN+ subscription, which comes out to $12.99/month.

Considering that's only one more dollar per month than Hulu's current premium offering, this bundle feels like a no-brainer. 

Time to binge some Disney Channel Originals! Or wait, is that just us?
