I hate Disney, and they own everything, so you're not wrong.

Thank god. I bought a ROKU last week to make sure we'd have it, and 5 hours later they announce the amazon deal (have those on every TV in the house.

I heard they had tons of opening day problems. Disney said the crashes, etc. were the result of their underestimating how many people would be logged in at the same time. Lots of unhappy subscribers. Of course, they all ranted on twitter, instead of recognizing that these things happen, and the service will adjust accordingly. I wish my life was so effortlessly convenient, that a new TV channel freezing, is worthy of losing my mind over. 

 

I plan to do a chronological sequence of the Marvel movies. Luckily I have access to all 23, between Disney, Netflix, Prime and the few I bought.


Good news! I saw a dog today.

That was always going to happen. As a day one adopter of some of the other streaming services, they all had the same problem. There is no stress test possible for servers to estimate that first day public. It'll even out soon.

Totally agree, not even worth getting upset about.

Yea I tried to watch something and it didn't work.  Tried again a few minutes later and it was fine.

FYI for anyone that has a Verizon Unlimited plan or 5G Home Internet, you may be able to get Disney+ free for a year.

Nah I think it's fair game to call a huge company out for not adequately preparing for the launch of an expensive and super hyped service. Reminds me of the Call of Duty midnight launches. They'd market it heavy, yet you could count on the servers not working right for a month or two until after launch. I think that's false advertisement honestly. Not sure why people should be so understanding of these companies. It's like buying a tooth brush, but the bristles not working until a couple weeks later. And I haven't signed up for this yet, I don't have a horse in this race, but this type of thing is typically a pet peeve for me, and I definitely would've been pissed had I been anticipating this for a while, only for it not to work.

I mean, it’s dumb on their part to not expect things like this but it’s not like you are spending thousands of dollars on it.

It’s a few bucks and it will work soon enough.

But you bought it. It should work now. How is that even legal?

Legal?

If you buy a toaster and it comes to you defective, do you think that’s illegal?

Whose life is that empty that if you can’t start watching stuff that you have either already seen or will be able to watch very soon that it’s worth getting so mad over this?

Don’t get me wrong..I get it. You buy something and you expect it to work.

But this isn’t a normal product. It’s not like you have to go stand in line at a store or drive for a while or something like that. You just have to wait until it works, which sounds like happened not long after the launch.

There's no excuse for it. They shit gold. Buy more servers, it's that simple.
