Disney+ opens its digital doors today after months of anticipation, and the official Xbox One app is now available for consoles, too. The app gives you access to the full back catalog of movies and TV available on Disney+. Given Disney's buying spree over the last decade or so, that's a wealth of content, covering everything from Star Wars and The Avengers to Pixar and Disney classics.

Disney+ has been the subject of much hype for several months, as it represents the first time the company's extensive lineup of content is available under one digital roof. Disney is also pushing to make sure Disney+ is available across practically anything with a connection to the internet. Along with Xbox One, apps are coming to Android, the Apple App Store, PlayStation, Roku, Samsung and LG TVs, and the Amazon Store.

Where to find your Disney+ apps for download

If you're ready to dive in and lose your free time to Disney for the foreseeable future, you can grab the Disney+ Xbox One app now and start watching on your console. To get started, though, you'll have to sign up for the service, which costs $7 per month.
