This has to be done to be fair to Netflix and Amazon.

Launches tomorrow. What are we most excited for?

Obviously the Mandalorian is their flagship show, and it looks pretty great (/message_topic.aspx?topic=650919), but I’m excited for a lot of the new marvel shows too, especially the “What if...?” series, although that may be a year or 2 out still. Also I’m going to watch the shit out of the 90s X-men cartoon, and might make my way through Gargoyles as well.

+1 on The Mandalorian

Though from what I've heard it's a weekly episode release instead of a season dump. Which I'm not thrilled about.

Really hoping for a resurrection of the Netflix Marvel shows. I don't like how Iron Fist ended, without seeing a follow-up.

I wonder if any Disney product on TV will show up on D+ episode by episode. For example, would new episodes of a show like Agents of SHIELD show up as the season aired or would they only be on ABC's website?

Prob to prevent people from getting the service for just one month, binging the series, then canceling.

I downloaded the mobile app but can't figure out how to play anything. I click on a show, it goes to a new screen, but then there are no buttons to play or download or even add to watch list.

Edit: nevermind, everything plays except mandalorian lol

I'm sad that this means an end to streaming every Simpsons ever (except for the Michael Jackson episode) for free. Also Disney has fucked up the golden age of The Simpsons by only offering them in 16:9 instead of the 4:3 they were made for.

anyone watching stuff on Disney+ via Amazon Fire TV? So far I watched Mandalorian and then Endgame, and both had weird shifts in coloring at random moments throughout the whole episode/movie

kind of annoying


edit - just found a subreddit about the whole deal, seems like it's just one of the issues on launch, apparently tinkering w/ the firetv display settings can get it to stop messing around

I'm a little surprised that Agents of SHIELD isn't in the library ... it's Marvel and also on ABC, which is a Disney-owned thing right?

Is it expected that Disney is going to rotate what is available from their catalog every few months or are they just waiting to get some of their resources back from other deals so they can eventually have everything always available?

I understand why they would want to constantly rotate every few months, but at the same time I'd be a little annoyed if I sprang for Disney+ and had to wait a few months to see the Disney show/movie I wanted to see.

From what I have heard Disney had an agreement with Netflix for releasing titles on that platform. I believe the agreement runs through 2022. So some movies will rotate off Disney+ (Mainly Marvel and Star Wars titles). Netflix will actually get to premiere a majority of the new releases.

The live version of Beauty and the Beast is currently on Netflix and will not be on the Disney+ platform until October 2020. That said the rotating title will be minimal and they only be temporarily gone while they complete their run on Netflix.

Added a movie to my watchlist and there was a note that said "this title won't be available until jan. 9th 2021. add to your watchlist now to be reminded"

That's some BS right there. They need to not have these titles right on the main screen if they aren't available right away.

I don't like that for TV shows you have to find the next episode yourself instead of the player automatically going to the next episode you haven't watched yet.

A super minor inconvenience for sure, but one Amazon and Netflix have overcome.

The UI definitely needs some work. At this point in the streamer game there's no excuse. They have so many other platforms to base theirs on.

So I already have an issue with Disney+. I'm not going to be one of those folks that are going to ditch it because the Mandalorian isn't around anymore - I tend to stick with a thing. However, I feel like they've really missed the mark in having a follow-up show to fill the void.

Netflix always has several original shows going at once. Even if you don't watch them all, there's almost always new original content being added. Disney+ does have some original content, but nothing matching the Mandalorian. I'm hoping it ramps up. They should have had one of their Marvel shows ready to go right after the Mandalorian's season finale aired.

^^ I have to agree. My kids love it so it’s not going anywhere, but I’m honestly shocked that Loki or wandavision wasn’t queued up and ready to go. It’s not like they’re hurting for material

I was thinking the same thing, the amount of movies is pretty stale after the initial roll out. We have the bundle and actually have used espn+ more than Disney

Netflix didn’t initially flood the market with original content

even though Disney has more money than most countries, they more than likely chose to wait to invest more in original programming until they knew their first foray into the field was a success

and that first foray wasn’t cheap

and you get every episode of the Simpsons

every parent in America should be required to show their kids the Simpsons

^^I don’t buy that. Based on their expectations, they should have had more original content at launch. Unless you are suggesting they only hoped they would do well, but hedged their bets and wanted to wait and see.

I don’t know for sure, but I’m guessing that the budget for the Mandalorian was bigger than the budget for any Netflix show

it’s also a sign of our times to say, “MORE PLZ” to a service that didn’t exist 3 months ago

^ pretty sure The Crown had a ridiculous budget

I do think they could have had at least 1-2 other seasons announced and ready to roll out shortly after Mandalorian. There was no way Disney+ was going to launch entirely dependent on the short-term success of one show and a few months of subscriptions.

Well almost every episode, Stark Raving Dad is not available and now its only available if you have Season 3 on DVD prior to last March.

Although my 6 year old loves the Simpsons and I agree every parent should make their kids watch it.

I as a 34 yo have never watched a single episode of Simpsons.

Why should every parent show it to there child? Is it age appropriate?
