Now it’s official: PlayStation 5 owners will also be able to watch Disney+ titles in 4K resolution. For this, streaming subscribers need to download its new application from the PlayStation Store, leaving behind the days when they saw the saga Star Wars or the releases of Marvel at 1080p. Although expected, console support comes late compared to other devices.
Released this Tuesday (4) by Mickey’s house, the news also brought good news for Star+ subscribers. Like its sister, the Disney group’s adult platform, existing only in Latin America, also gained a new app with support for 4K titles.
Disney+ Executive Vice President of Product and Design Jerrell Jimerson said the efforts are aimed at improving the experience for fans when using both streams.
“A key part of our global expansion strategy is serving consumers wherever they are, which is why we are excited to enhance Disney+ and Star+ for PlayStation 5 users.”clarified.
Users who already used to use Disney+ on the PS5 must remember how sad it was to watch a title available in 4K, but not be able to get the desired image quality on Sony’s console. This was because, before the update, the platform used the same PS4 app on the device, without any kind of enhancement developed for Disney+.
Now, with the relaunch of the app, more than 100 titles from the platform can be viewed on the device with a more impactful experience, without having to resort to other devices in your home, which have streaming installed.
