I was able to download the Disney Plus app this morning and play around with it. Not surprisingly, I guess, after awhile there were sporadic connection problems, probably as more people wake up and start using it. The amount of content is pretty impressive.

I’m looking forward to the new series and some of the old movies and shows I saw in the 50’s like Davy Crockett.

I played a little before work too and ran into a bit of slowdown. I watched The Band Concert and the video played flawlessly, but navigating some menus was a little rough. I'm not too worried as the service was only about 5 minutes old when I was doing it. Mandalorian party tonight!

I did the same thing this morning. I must say I'm impressed by the amount of content here! Wow. Like really. I wasn't sure what to expect, but honestly, it looks like they have outdone themselves at least for now. Really looking forward to a lot of the new content, and spending some cold winter nights and weekends with old favorites!

Who knows, once it's been around a while, I may even drop Netflix. While I enjoy a few shows on it, frankly, the amount of MA content is starting to drive me away. Especially with kids in the house.

    I haven't been able to play anything. It just keeps spinning when I try to watch any show or movie. I've tried on multiple devices (TV, phone, and PC) with no luck. Am I surprised that a Disney app/website won't work? Not at all!

    There is actually more than advertised in the big Twitter blast they did. I am so excited to really dive into it!

    It won't even let me log in, and the "help" number they give to call? It's not even a real phone number! I am SO MAD right now.

    Worked on my kindle fire and my ipod. My only issue is what to watch first. Classic Cinderella was the winner this morning. I plan to Watch the Mandolarian when I have time to soak it in. Tonight Tonight after I get done with work and Toastmasters.

    The ipod was tricky to make work but eventually it did connect

    I really like it! Of course, I had some connection issues this morning, but I have it up and running on my smart tv and am currently watching Boy Meets World. One thing I've not found yet though, is a "resume" or "continue watching" option. If I close out of the app, go back in and go to my watch list, there's no option to continue, so I have to go to the episode I was watching and then I can continue. Am I missing something?

    This bothers me too. Also there is no add to my watchlist available unless you actually bring up the show. So I search for Star Wars and get a huge list of shows. I have to click on Star Wars Rebels then I can add it to my watchlist. I hit the back button and it takes me out of my search so I have to search Star Wars again, then click on the show, then add, then go back and search Star Wars again. I like how Netflix will just let you add to list when you're just looking at the thumbnail.

    I did some reading, it's apparently there for some and not for others, so it's a glitch.

    I do also wish they'd let you add to watchlist from the thumbnail.

    Well, we can’t get it on our Samsung tv. Apparently only compatible with Samsung’s from 2016 or later. Ours is a 65” 4K from 2015. It’s a great tv with absolutely no issues. Not gonna get a new tv just for Disney +. And not paying to just watch on my iPad.

    I have an older (not smart) TV too and am not going to buy a new one just for Disney +. But I did get a Roku Premium box ($39) so I can watch D+ on the TV. I can access my Movies Anywhere account through that too. It has worked very smoothly today.
