Disney Plus users discover apparent expiry dates for movies and TV shows

Disney-Plus-mobile-app

They're reporting the Disney+ app was downloaded 3.2 million times in the first 24 hours (Variety says 89% of the downloads were in the US, with 9% in Canada and 2% in the Netherlands). They exceeded that on the very first day!

Disney has invested billions in its streaming service, which costs $7 United States a month or $70 a year after a 7-day free trial. This is all the more impressive when you take into account that Disney+ ran into several problems yesterday, with many subscribers unable to get the streaming service to launch properly.

Disney+, now available in the U.S, Canada and the Netherlands, will expand to Australia and New Zealand next week, and the U.K., Germany, Italy, France and Spain on March 31, the company announced last week.

The independent complaint tracker Downdetector was registering about 200 to 500 issues with the service every 15 minutes, a marked decrease from Tuesday morning NY time, when the site saw as many as 8,000 complaints.

Disney Plus is launching here on November 19, and if you're a fan of Disney's offerings, Pixar films, Marvel or Star Wars, then you'll probably find something to appreciate here.

"Netflix has changed what we want from a streaming service by providing quality original shows like Stranger Things exclusive to that platform". Indeed, when you consider that the standard Netflix plan costs $12.99 per month on its own, and delivers none of the Hulu or ESPN+ content, as well as a fraction of the Disney programming, the insane value of this deal becomes obvious.

"This gives Disney the rights to titles that the younger generation might consider "classic" like X-Men and The Simpsons".

In India, the company plans to bring Disney+'s catalog to Hotstar, a popular video streaming service it owns, after the end of next year's IPL cricket tournament in May, the people said.

Disney also made headway in fixing glitches.

Disney Plus is projected to reach up to 90 million global subscribers by 2025.

On the list are the big names which have been drawing attention overseas like the highly-anticipated Mandalorian series and the live action Lady and the Tramp. This gets you access to all the movies and TV show content that Disney Plus has to offer, with 4K, HDR visuals and Dolby Atmos audio coming as standard.
