The biggest question around Disney+ right now seems to be just how many devices you can use simultaneously to watch the enormous line-up of programming and movies. The good news is Disney+ is pretty generous when it comes to streaming across multiple devices. What might be even cooler than the streaming options is the amount of devices you can use to download Disney+ content. Let’s get to the numbers.
How Many Devices Can Stream Disney Plus at Once
According to Disney’s own help page, you can share your Disney+ login to stream on up to four different devices simultaneously. That means any of the supported Disney+ devices, from TVs to smartphones to your web browser, support multiple streams. So if you want to watch Iron Man on your smart TV while someone else in your house watches on an iPad, you just login with your account info and have at it. It’s that simple.

How Many Devices Can Download Disney Plus Content at Once
You can download any of the movies, shows, and originals from Disney+ to up to 4 different devices at once per account, similar to how many devices can stream Disney+ simultaneously. It’s a really great feature if you have a family, or you just want to load up on Disney, Star Wars, Marvel, or National Geographic content before a long flight or time away from reliable internet.
There’s a pretty comprehensive list of compatible Disney+ devices, and you can check to make sure you have something compatible, but basically if you’re reading this on a modern smart phone or on your computer, you can stream or download Disney+ shows and movies right now (provided you have a Disney+ subscription, of course).
What Disney Plus Content Is Available for Download
Arguably the coolest hidden feature of Disney+ is the ability to download everything on the service, as many times as you want, without a limit on when you need to watch it. That means everything: every Marvel movie, every Star Wars movie, every single episode of DuckTales old AND new, the 1990s X-Men animated series, even Avatar, can be downloaded without limits on how many times you can download it or how long you have to wait to watch it. As long as you don’t exceed the 4 device limit, you can download Disney+ to your heart’s content.

How Many Devices Can Stream Hulu or ESPN+ at Once
This is where things start to get a little bit tricky. If you signed up for the Hulu, Disney+ and ESPN+ bundled deal, the allowable devices for simultaneous streaming differs from service to service. According to the Hulu help page, you can stream Hulu on two different screens at once. According to the ESPN+ help page, you can watch the service across three different screens simultaneously. Just like with Disney+, there’s no limit to how many devices you can use to sign in, just make sure you don’t exceed your number of allowed screens or someone will get booted in the middle of an episode of The Mandalorian, which no one wants.
Oh, and it IS possible to get ad-free Hulu with Disney+, it’s just a bit of a process.
