If you subscribe to Disney+ through Shaw, you will need to activate your Shaw Disney+ subscription by linking it to a new or existing Disney+ account. Follow the steps below to link your accounts so you can begin enjoying Disney+ with Shaw.

Note: If you already have a Disney+ subscription billed by Disney+, your billing with Disney+ will automatically pause after you’ve linked your subscription with your Shaw account through My Shaw. For third party Disney+ subscriptions (Google, Apple, etc.), you must manage the subscription separately to avoid being billed multiple times.

Linking Disney+ to your Shaw account

Your Disney+ promotional period begins once you have completed the purchase of your Disney+ subscription through Shaw. This makes it important to link your account as soon as possible. Follow the below steps to link Disney+ with your Shaw account.

  1. Within a few days a Disney+ activation email is sent to the email address you provided.
  2. Follow the steps in the email to link your account in My Shaw.
    • If you don’t follow the activation email, we’ll send you reminder emails 7 and 14 days later.
    • If you don’t receive this email, skip to Step 3.
  3. Log in to My Shaw.
  4. Select the Get Started button on the banner at the top of the page to Connect to Disney+. This will bring you to the Disney+ website to create an account.
