I like Disney+ and I'm glad we got that 3-year subscription right at the start, what a deal.

Looks like Disney+ pummeled HBO Max in terms of downloads over the Christmas holiday. 2.3 million vs 544k downloads respectively.

Agreed. It gets far more use than Netflix at this point, which is the only other subscription service we have.

Same here and with the free year from Verizon... I'm set until sometime late 2023.

I didn't know this until the weekend, but apparently Cinderella 2015 with Lily James was removed from the service back in October. It got brought in September and then was removed sometime in October.

No one seems to know the reason why.

According to JustWatch, Cinderella is streaming on Sling TV. Maybe it was part of some previous deal?

It was just posted on The Muppets Facebook Page that all five seasons of The Muppet Show are coming to Disney Plus on February 19th. The question will be if they are presented uncut and in their original form.

Yep, very glad. Especially since they never released the last 2 seasons on DVD.

I bought the DVD set from Time Life, I think it was 10 discs. I'm happy to see them coming to Disney+, and all episodes.

Good question? It should be as it was originally seen on tv.

Re: Disney+ streaming service

Who the hell analyzes frame rates for something that aired 44 years ago on old standard definition TV?

Re: Disney+ streaming service

I think he means the OAR as the show was shown 1.33:1 and shouldn't be cropped and stretched to fill widescreen tvs.

No, he actually means the framerate.

There's nothing to "analyze", the difference is clear as night and day. I thought you worked in TV sports, you ought to be able to notice the difference between live video and the way it usually looks online. Videotaped material online always looked jerky, but for a while now it's finally been possible to get right. Most of the big streaming services still can't seem to do it though- Disney for example has Boy Meets World looking choppy as well as the Mouseketeers at Disney World special. Meanwhile I've been able to upload stuff on YouTube at the proper frame rate using a bit of processing, and I'm nearly computer illiterate. Most of the online TV services seem to at least carry the sports channels at the right frame rate.

This clip has nothing to do with Disney or the Muppets, but can you tell the difference between this version:
and this?
Which one looks better? (Some equipment may not be able to display these properly, but they do on my laptop and phone. The YouTube app on my TV does not.)

I don't give a shit really. We're getting it on Disney Plus. Whatever they give us is what we get. Or you can ask them on Twitter perhaps.

I thought it was a legit question.

If the frame rate is wrong it’s gonna look like crap.

I wonder if that comes from cramming 29.97 fps content on a 24/30 fps platform.

Re: Disney+ streaming service

Disney+ has launched an ad-free bundle with Hulu and ESPN+ for $18.99 per month. Any new subscriber is eligible for the bundle, but only those who currently have a standalone Disney+, ad-supported Hulu, or ESPN+ account can go the upgrade route (sorry, current bundle subscribers).

So I'm guessing if you're locked into a non bundled subscription you can't just pay the difference to get the new bundle.

Re: Disney+ streaming service

I was finally able to give a Disney Plus subscription a try and I must say I've had a lot of fun watching what's on it. I signed up for a month so I could watch The Mandalorian and I'm at episode four of the first season. It's what I imagined Star Wars should be after Disney bought it. I'm kind of shocked none of the Ernest moves are available and I look forward to watching the Muppet Show.

“shocked none of the Ernest moves aren't available”

I guess you’re saying none of them Are available. Anyway I never watch a single one of those. Are they a Disney property?

The Ernest movies are Buena Vista Titles so yes they are owned by Disney.
