Disney+ is having some 'unable to connect issues' at launch

Tessa Thompson and Justin Teroux voice the title characters in Disney's latest live-action remake'Lady and the Tramp

Disney+ is relying on its extensive library of movies and TV shows as well as a new slate of content to take on market-leader Netflix Inc and Apple TV+, Apple Inc's newly launched streaming service.

Accessibility features: Disney+ will provide closed captioning on most titles and text-to-speech support for the app's interface on all compatible devices except PlayStation 4. If you subscribe to Disney+ and Hulu separately, you're paying $12.98, so for a penny more you can bundle it and get ESPN+.

The Walt Disney Company on Tuesday launched its Disney+ video streaming platform in the United States and Canada, in an attempt to recoup ground lost to Netflix.

Via Twitter, Disney said demand had "exceeded our highest expectations".

More than 10 million people have signed up for the $6.99-a-month service so far after it officially launched Tuesday morning, according to the company.

So there you have it, Disney+ fans.

That number, which the company ascribed in a press release to "extraordinary consumer demand", may help explain why the service experienced widespread outages after launching early Tuesday.

NFL Reportedly Arranges Private Workout for Colin Kaepernick
Among the details, the statement said no team has offered Kaepernick a job or brought him in for a workout since the 2016 season. Kaepernick has 12,271 career passing yards, 2,300 career rushing yards and 85 total touchdowns over his six-year career.

The app divides the content into five main categories, Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic.

So many Marvel movies are now available for streaming on Disney's brand new streaming service, Disney+.

The one major quibble so far in the debut episode (Disney declined to share additional episodes with press): Given that Pascal's character never removes his helmet-no Mandalorians do, we are told-it is hard to connect to a lead character whose facial features are completely hidden. Hulu has current network TV episodes available to air a day after they air on primetime, so you can keep up with shows and cut the cord.

Subscribers in Puerto Rico noted that they must wait another week to access the service, even though the company originally said it would launch there on the same date as the rest of the U.S.

"Unable to connect to Disney+", one error page, which showed Wreck-It Ralph holding a WiFi signal, read.

A representative for Disney provided a written statement on the widespread problems on its highly anticipated launch date, but did not address the specific technical glitch.
