Re: Disney+ streaming service - November 12, 2019 launch

So, I signed up for my free year through Verizon. My D23 three-year membership is still in there; however, the expiration date is STILL 2022. I emailed Disney to see if they'll change it/how long it may take to update...was going to chat, but the wait time was over 30 minutes, so screw that.

Anyone else in the above scenario...just want to make sure it's "just not me" - it's not like I don't have time to straighten it out.

Love the app/service - watched the Jeff Goldblum show first...it's really good.

It’s moving so slow. The servers must be getting hammered.

The downloadable content on my iPad is very low quality, certainly not HD. I would check to see it there is a setting for that, but the service is currently down for me.

There is a setting that can change that.

I had issues logging in with the network login. It would bring me in but it would say service is unavailable. I imagine they are going to get hammered now that people are waking up. Hopefully by the time I get home from work they'll get things running smoothly.

Re: Disney+ streaming service - November 12, 2019 launch

At 6 am this morning, I was able to install the Disney+ app on my Rokus, Samsung Galaxy phone and iPad. However, I could not find it as an app to install on my 2018 Samsung Smart QLED TV. I am trying again when I get home at 3:30 p.m. ET, but I do have a 2019 ROKU Ultra on standby that is still in the box just in case.

And yes, they are getting hammered. I have only been able to access on my phone twice this morning, otherwise, their servers are crying "uncle" right now....

Plus, it looks like our firewall at work as premptively blocked DisneyPlus.com as am accessible resource.... Bummer.

Was able to sign up through verizon.

Getting hammered at the moment, but have been able to watch some old disney animation shorts and watching classic XMen while I work.

I was able to install on my Samsung TV, my android phone, and my Roku. Other than the network issues (which I expected at launch), I'm also a little bummed that they didn't have a resume feature ready at launch. Or at least it's not working for me.

The Force Awakens looks damn good in 4K. Been rummaging through the stuff that hasn’t been released yet on 4K. All great looking so far, can’t wait until (at least I hope) they get released on UHD.

I've received this email 3 times this morning and have no clue why:
This is confirmation that your Disney Account has been changed.Your account can be used to log in to Disney+ on connected TV, mobile, and web. In addition to Disney+, this change applies to your account used to access other Walt Disney Company apps and websites, such as Disney, ESPN, Marvel, FX, and more.If you did not make these changes, please visit our Help Center for more information.

Iím not sure I did this right. I already had Hulu (regular). So I went to signup for the bundle but I forget my Hulu email was different and I didnít realize before. After I signed up I want into Hulu and changed my email to match. Will I be billed correctly?

This all could've been avoided if we were able to download it two days ago!

In all seriousness, this was to be expected and I'm not concerned with it. It'll get straightened out soon enough.

And it’s not all down. My son is watching Episode 7 right now since there’s a school start delay due to weather. Seems to be running fine.

Once everything is loaded, it seems to be working okay. We are currently watching the first episode of the Jeff Goldblum show.

What is the app called? Not seeing anything searching Disney and Disney+ in the app store (Apple).

Yes it is. You have to search for "disneyplus". I put it on my iPhone.
