Disney has released a native Disney+ app for the PlayStation 5 worldwide. The most important addition that comes with it is the support for 4k and high dynamic range.

Disney reports that PlayStation 5 users can download a Disney+ app made specifically for the console. The only change this will bring to the user experience is that viewers can now watch content in 4k and with HDR support on the PS5 for the first time.

Previously, players on the PlayStation 5 had to use the Disney+ app, which is intended for the PlayStation 4 consoles. This application limits content to 1080p resolution and also does not support high dynamic range. Watching a movie or series in 4k and with HDR10 was therefore not an option.

The PS5 came out in November 2020; it took almost two years before an app was released specifically for the console in question. Disney+ was already available in 4k on Xbox One S and X and later Xbox Series consoles.
