Things I don’t like.

The service doesn’t track what you’ve already watched.

That is a huge flaw. If I don’t know which episode I left off on how am I supposed to binge? Netflix has this feature.

I think there should also be a search feature searching movies by release date and possibly also content rating.

They need to add a resume feature for where you left off and a continue watching section because I don’t wanna waste time trying to figure out where I left off and searching for a particular show each time. It’s sad that a feature like that isn’t added day one in times like today.

sounds like a platform for normies. Remind me if they have great documentaries, anime, or tv show and not amusement park-like one, as described by Scorsese.

I signed up, I paid, and then I sat on hold for 3 hours because my app told me to call the help line and whenever I push the x or dismiss Button it logs me out
Still pissed I gotta wait 4 months!
I'm going to sign up right now, honestly i just want to watch all the shows I did when I was younger like Lizzie Micgire and stuff like that.

I have it. I’m still on the free trial. I’m going to stop it. So much is missing they don’t even have Spider-Man movies most everything on here is on your cable channels.
Wanna hear paint dry? Listen to this reviewer
The only problem I have is that their advertising content they dont have the streaming rights to right now. There's stuff on there that doesn't come to the platform for a year at least.

Thx for the heads up. It looks okay, but I'll give it a few months before committing.
I can watch Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Star Wars: Rogue One (2016) and Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) on Disney+. On second thought, the 20th Century-Fox logo and fanfare was restored in Disney+ print of Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980).

Arturo Reyes
Arturo Reyes:
Very incomplete app. I like some of the stuff but if u are watching something and u have have to do something and get off it wont stay were u left off u will have to restart since the beginning and figure it out urself. Also it dont save what u been watching like Netflix. The positive u can keep watching without it asking u if ur still there and u can watch on 4 devices at the same time.

The Simpsons season 3 - 9 itself is worth it
Got the 7 day free trial and I can already tell I'm going to run out of things I actually want to watch within that time, I've either seen it all already or have no interest in it. My kids haven't even really shown any interest in it either. I only signed up for the Mandalorian but with it only being one episode a week I should have just waited until the show was done and then signed up. Each to their own though but I'm not overly impressed. Warnings on old Disney movies like Lady and the Tramp, Dumbo, the Simpson's not having its earlier seasons in 4:3 aspect ratio which ends up cutting out many of the visual jokes, its just a bit sad tbh, and they even removed the Michael Jackson episode entirely from a season. Ultimately there's just not nearly enough stuff to keep my interest and to keep paying for it monthly and then there's the lack of anything that's actually adult orientated because you know its Disney.

I have the Disney app installed on my QLED Q90 tv and I am also using an HW Q90R soundbar. According to the movies details most movies stream in 4K ultra HD, HDR10, HDR, Dolby Vision/atmos (not supported by Samsung). I haven't found yet what video format I'm really streaming on my tv since the app doesn't provide the specific info for my device. Also not sure about audio quality (could be 5.1) but I'm sure it is not atmos as my soundbar doesn't register it as atmos when the video is streaming. It Seems like the Disney app doesn't provide the info lime other apps do (Netflix and amazon video for example). The one thing I noticed is that the audio quality is bad. The voice volhme (dialogs) is very low while the background sounds and or music is very loud. There is no good balance between them. I have to constantly keep decreasing or increasing the volume depending on dialog being to low or background sound being too loud. Also there is a lag that is very evident to a point that it's annoying, the Audio lag can be adjusted on the tv settings but then it affect other apps that are not having issues.
So far the Disney app needs a bit of work and Samsung and disney need to figure out a way to provide atmos sound quality via the app in a way that it's compatible with the Samsung devices. This is in part Samsung's fault since it's so resistant to embrace HDMI 2.1 specially in its higher tier TVs and soundbars. No 2019 samsung tv or soundbar, not even their 8K tv or the Q90 QLED (their most expensive QLED tv) has HDMI 2.1, therefore can't handle true HD Atmos. Some apps like Netflix provide a loosless form of atmos and hopefully Disney will do this, it's not true hd atmos quality but it's still far better than the awful 5.1 that we are supposedly getting at this moment.
So far this is my experience with the Disney app. I've been watching some of the marvel movies and Star Wars movies but not enjoying them as much as I would like to with the audio issues I'm experiencing. I will be probably cancelling the subscription after the trial period and only subscribe back once I get confirmation that those issues have been resolved.

Just the 6.99 or there’s a bundle for 12.99 but I’m doing the 6.99
Randy Tang
Randy Tang:
its a great start but there were some movies missing i was hoping to find like 'escape to witch mountain (1995 remake)', 'angels in the outfield (1994)', 'computer who wore tennis shoes (1995 remake)', 'the garbage picking field goal kicking philadelphia phenomenon (1998)', 'the paper brigade (1996)', 'susie q (1996)', and a few others. But the service still has a dope selection.

On my LG OLED TV, and my 2nd gen Amazon Fire box, the app only supports PCM 2 channel STEREO. Are you frigging KIDDING ME? Marvel movies with stereo audio? AND no UHD on the Fire box? What were you thinking, Disney? Guess what's going to happen after my 7 day trial is up?
What happened with the Disney xd shows like zeke and Luther, kick butowski, pair of kings, etc

Of course I have the one device that doesn't support Disney+ and I wasn't made aware until after I paid. It's not compatible with Vizio TVs built in Chromecast and Vizio says it won't be rolling out an update until 2020!! All they do is suggest to use another device, not all of us have a bunch of TV's, laptops, or iPads laying around. Hopefully they will refund me. Heard really good things about the Mandalorian and was excited to watch it.

Hello, Humans.
I had a problem after watching the new Star Wars show. I watched the old 80’s cartoon Spider-man and his amazing friends and it had some terrible greenish tints which carried over into my tv when I watched something else later on directv. I cut tv off and still remained so I tried a 4K Blu-ray and it returned to normal so I assume that old cartoon stuck my tv in a lesser graphic mode or something.
My Samsung tv does not have it. Is there a way to update?

There is no home button if you click on something then keep on clicking on recommended shows from that one. You have to go back like a hundred times to get back to home screen
