I get why they did it for the new scripted shows.

I'm looking forward to the 2nd episode of The Imagineering story. It's covering Disney World and the construction of Tokyo Disneyland. This is stuff that has never been covered in documentary form.

and they will probably cover Hong Kong, Paris and Shanghai Disneyland as well.
Exactly. I was looking forward to the Imagineers one and was a little disappointed to see only one episode.

Yeah, I was about to ask the same thing. I've searched and haven't found any references to a 30-day trial.

In case you have not signed up yet and are interested in the $12.99 bundle with ESPN Plus and ad supported Hulu, you can find it here.

https://www.disneyplus.com/

It's on the main page of the website.

I just don't want ESPN. I heard there might be a bundle without it.

I sure as hell wasn't using "lawyer read" because I misread it - I have a 7-day free trial and then I'm signed up for a year (the option I chose). I'll keep it for a year and see how it goes.

Yeah, I'd consider a D+ and Hulu bundle, but I don't need ESPN+

Thank you for posting this ... I would have thought something was wrong! Finally my turn to pick something, and this is where I went. (Have to wait till tonight to watch The Mandalorian with my son.)

Has anyone with the D+ three year deal looked into pricing for the bundle?
Apparently they ask that you call if you already have D+

They should be able to put Song of the South on the service if that warning is being used.

Re: 1941 Dumbo - didn't they make an edit or edits to the original a few months back?

Re: the Star Wars films. I'm hearing they all (or at least the Original Trilogy) got a complete color timing update - can anyone confirm if they made Luke's lightsaber blue again in A New Hope (it looked green on the Blu-rays) and Darth's red again in Empire (it looks pink on the Blu-rays).

I'm interested but will wait a week and see why the verdict is on the streaming, quality and what they all have to offer. But yea...if they can put out a Disney + Hulu at say $10.00 a month..I'm sold....Right now all we have is a OTA, Amazon Prime and Cinemax which I'll gladly give up for this.

You can get a bundle with those two and ESPN+ for 12.99.

Got in fine with Roku express. Only glitch I’ve encountered so far was that it took 2 tries for “Expanding The Marvel Universe” to work. Watching the new Dumbo right now.

I'll admit there's so much content that I can't decide on what to watch... some of it is out of order, but that will be corrected. Overwhelmed! Lots of Christmas stuff, too.
I spent all night searching and seeing what they have lol. And I def was singing the lyrics to Gummi Bears when played. It is CRAZY how many talented voice actors are playing the Gummi Bears. I saw the first episode and was like I know that voice and that voice and that voice then went on Wiki.

Ya Spider-Man Animated Series is def out of order. It started with a Venom episode. Had to go on Wiki to see where to start.

Pirates of the Caribbean movies look damn good as well in 4K.

And damn you Disney for not providing Dolby Atmos to such great looking 4K transfers.

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

I added about 20 titles to my queue (sorry, Watchlist) and apart from the lag this morning haven't noticed anything else. I watched a couple shorts and an episode of HSMTMTS, no problems.
An old cartoon I watched "Thru the Mirror" I think had a notice of "old content that might offend you." (and I don't even know what it was referring to). Then I watched Kitbull and wondered why there wasn't a warning on that one.
A couple of the things I added won't be available for a year due to the rights issues. But I get it. They've pulled a lot of good stuff, old and new, and some not-so-good-but-surely-guilty-pleasure-or-nostalgia stuff together on the service.
Haven't seen Escape to Witch Mountain in like 30 years, I added that to my watchlist.
I wish they would drop all of a series at once, but the differing deployment models definitely isn't just them. Then again, it's not like there isn't plenty to watch right now.

The app sucks for my Roku streaming sick+. I am having major issues with it. Any time I move categories, I get a handshake issue where it changes resolution. I then get my tv/receiver wigging out. I have zero issues with Amazon/Netflix apps. Tried out on my fire stick and I don't have this issue.

The annoying thing about the AppleTV and PS4 apps are that when you finish watching the episodes of a TV series, there’s nothing highlighting that it was watched.
