Disney Plus Streaming Service Launches with Some Technical Issues
I'm sitting here, looking at the launch page for Disney Plus and I'm still on the fence. It seems sitting on the fence may not be a bad idea since the new streaming service, which launched early Tuesday morning, has been wrought with technical issues.
The website and app have crashed several times which I don't think are unusual when millions of subscribers are trying to download and stream at the same time. Again, this service is not even a day old. The company offered this tweet for support.
All of my friends who have tried it so far, with no tech issues, are totally in love. The good news, is you don't have to subscribe right away, you have the 7-day free trial or test drive option as I call it to give it a look.
I am on board, if only temporarily, when I make up my mind, to watch the new original Star Wars spinoff and Disney Plus original series The Mandalorian.
Also, keep in mind, it's not just Disney content, there's all the Marvel movies, National Geographic original programming/documentaries, the complete The Simpsons series, Pixar movies, and all the Star Wars movies and series.
And if you've been thinking of getting a Hulu subscription, they are offering a bundle that includes Disney Plus, ESPN Plus, and their service with ads for $12.99/mo. Better yet, if you are a Verizon customer, you may be eligible for a free year of Disney Plus.
As for me, we'll see.
