How to sign up for Disney+
Disney+ and Disney+ promotional offers are only available to new or existing customers signing and/or renewing a 2-year ValuePlan and who meet the eligibility criteria. Visit Shaw.ca or contact us to learn more.
By ordering Disney+ from Shaw.ca or by contacting a Shaw agent, you will need to sign up for Disney+ and your Disney+ subscription charges will be included in your regular monthly Shaw invoice. See How To: Link your Shaw account to Disney+ for more information.
Subscribing to Disney+ from your TV set-top box, or through the Disney+ website or mobile app, means your subscription will be billed separately by Disney and will not appear on your Shaw bill.
