Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “Disney+ coming to Fire TV devices on launch day - 9to5Mac”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Following the launch of Apple TV+ last week, we’re now approaching the debut of Disney+. In an interview with CNBC today, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that Disney+ will be coming to Amazon’s Fire TV platform — much like Apple TV+.

In August, Disney confirmed the wide array of platforms where viewers would be able to watch Disney+, including Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, and much more. Notably absent from that list, however, was Amazon Fire TV.

Iger now says that Disney+ will be available on Fire TV starting on launch day, November 12. This means owners of Amazon’s various Fire TV devices, such as the Fire Stick, will then be able to tune into Disney+ content.

A report from the Wall Street Journal last month said that Amazon and Disney were clashing over advertising terms. Amazon reportedly wanted to sell a “substantial percentage of ad space on Disney apps,” but Disney was pushing back. The two seem to have resolved their disagreements, but details are unknown.

For TV+, Apple has put an emphasis on making the service available on different platforms, ranging from Fire TV to Roku and various brands of smart TVs, with more to come. Disney is taking a similar approach, as evident by today’s announcement.
