Can You Really Download Movies on Disney Plus on Laptop and Mac?

By Gabriela Vatu / December 19, 2020

Disney Plus has been around for over a year, and many were hoping that they'd be able to watch content offline through this platform. However, when it comes to doing that over a laptop or mac, that's not going to happen. Mobile apps, however, are a different thing.

Disney Plus has made sure that only mobile users could download content to watch offline. The reasons for this decision are multiple.

First of all, they're trying to make sure that by encrypting content to only be playable through the Disney Plus app, they'll deter some of the folks who may be looking for an easy way to upload Disney Plus content to torrents.
