Disney Plus?

Just launched and sorry if it was covered. Anyone here on board yet? Just because we have a couple little girls in the house I'm probably gonna give it a whirl.
Say you??

    Yup we got it and so far it’s been good.

    My aystem can’t appreciate the 4K or Atmos content but the Star Wars stuff I’ve heard is awesome!

    They also have National Geographic which I will be diving into soon.

  • I signed up, mainly for the grandkids, but I watched the new Star Wars series and it looks promising.

    So I am guessing it is an app that I can download on my Samsung TV so the kids can easily access? We don't have cable at all. Right now, just Netflix but I am thinking of giving the free 7 day trial a go.

    Yes. On Roku it was a "channel", on my Xbox One and iPhone X/iPad it was a "app". Haven't tried to get it on the Amazon Fire tablets yet.

    Also dont have a "smart tv", but I'd be very surprised if Disney+ wasn't available on just about EVERY platform (doesn't make smart business sense to limit your market in this instance)

    I read that Samsung TVs from 2016 onward will support it. Not sure when we bought ours. I will look tonight when I get home to see if the app is there. If not I have an android box and a chromecast I can use. I just want it to be easy for the kids to access it not some 5 step method that will require "papa...can you help" every time they want to watch.

    Wife & I will talk about it tomorrow and for sure at least check out the free trial offer. Already have commercial free Hulu so not sure how this works or if it even does with that plan?

    I'm trying not to add another streaming platform, but the Disney+ bundles are tempting.

    FYI for anyone considering, I got an ad today for a bundle that includes Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+ for $12.99. Disney+ alone doesn't tempt me, but that bundle is pretty solid. I wouldn't be surprised if they do an ABC+ bundle at some point down the line too.

    You can still get the bundle, you just sign up with your hulu email and link the two accounts. Disney gives you a $6 credit a month towards whatever your current hulu plan is...

    I guess this is why Disney titles have been disappearing from Netflix.
  • WillowWillow Posts: 9,742
    Kids are watching it now. My tv is 2015 so much no app. I'm going through my Android box for now. I'll probably hook up chrome cast over the weekend and see.

    Netflix also suddenly announced final seasons of their original Marvel shows once the news broke. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and The Defenders I believe were all cut shorter than originally planned. Netflix still owns the titles/shows, but they cut future development.

    It will be interesting to see if Disney buys/licenses those shows at some point to host the complete Marvel Universe.

    Netflix is lucky they have Andy Griffith Show and Twilight Zone. Otherwise I'd cancel and then just sign back up one or two months a year to watch whatever new stuff they have going on then cancel again.

    Nope. Other than The Mandalorian, not interested. Kids are too old (my 13 year old daughter’s favorite right now is John Wick!), and just more $$ going out every month that we don’t need to spend.
    Too much stuff to keep track of.

    Currently enjoying: Legacy Focus 20/20, McCormack DNA 225, Bill D C1, Oppo 105
  • I signed up back in early October when the offers were discounted for buying year long packages. I ended up buying it for $170 for 3 years. That breaks down to $4.72 a month. With kids that are 4 and 6 currently that made sense for us - especially with the inclusion of National Geographic.

    We are out of the country right now, but as soon as we get back I'll get it all hooked up and see how things look. I'm looking forward to a lot of the content being in 4k from the get go. Bravo to Disney for not charging more for such features like Netflix does.

    I currently have hulu but signed up for the Disney + bundle. $12.99 for ad-filled hulu, espn + and Disney +. That works for me and is actually a savings. Now Netflix is getting pricey for how much I don't watch it.

    We watched "The Finest Hours" last night and although I've seen it before, so much about it I forgot & this service is top notch picture and sound wise. Made for great family viewing. The bundle takes 6 dollars off on our commercial free Hulu too. We elected the annual plan for an even better savings.

    We have both Hulu and ESPN Plus so getting Disney in the bundle for $12.99 for all 3 is a no brainer.
