    It is finally here. After a year of of hype and months of heavy advertising it is finally here and available for download.

    I was able to watch some stuff at 3am but now nothing will load on any device and it is happening to others as well.

    Everyone and their grandma is trying to get on, hopefully they address this all during the free 7 day trial.

    I have two friends who have been counting the days. Seems they were not alone.

    I'll wait a few months for some new content and give it a try.

    I won't ever forgive what they have done with Star Wars.

    Rogue One being the only exception....which itself is infuriating because it shows Disney CAN make a great Star Wars move, they just choose not to.

    George Lucas ****ed up the prequels. Disney couldn't do much worse.

    Maybe today I'll sign up for the free Verizon thing. They are supposed to send an email today.

    I'd imagine they're just being overloaded by users on their launch day. It'll settle down and bandwidth will become available.

    Disney and their business practices, is one of the reasons I have gone to cord cutting mode. Missed the last half of the Baseball season thanks to them and Dish feuding. Disney and Dish came to an agreement, but the subscribers lost out for a few months.
    It is also why I dropped Netflix. I never cared for it that much but LostWife had a few things she liked and a TV show she enjoyed. Netflix lost the rights to the show as of 1-1-20 to Time Warner IIRC, along with a lot of the content that we both watched it for.
    I'm waiting on some reviews on Disney+. If it is only what I've seen advertised, I'll pass.

    You used to have to BUY many of the classic Disney movies if you wanted to watch them. Dow you can download ALL of them for $6.99 in one month and then cancel if you want. Keep them on a memory stick or laptop or phone. I'd say that's a deal!

    The Maldorian is getting great reviews. I’m hoping it’s at least decent. With the exception of Rogue One it’s been a dumpster fire.

    Stock popped this morning at the announcement they had gone live.

    They had major problems with the launch and the spin from the analyst community is the demand so far exceeded their capacity that the sites crashed. Buy, buy, buy. ;)

    You know you are in a bull market when the stock pops on something everyone knew was coming and it crashed at the launch.

    Must be nice. WeWork should hire Iger. :)

    I signed up for a package with Disney, Hulu, and ESPN+. Haven't figured out how to get Hulu and ESPN yet.

    I got it to work on the PS4 and I will say this, The Mandalorian is pretty good so far.

    Oh horse manure to infinity power! JJ, KK, & Rian's creations make the prequels look like Shakespeare!

    Rian: "let's kill the story arc in the 2nd act"
    KK: "but will SJW? And add more Mary Sue!"
    JJ: "You killed off everyone, I'm mediocre, but I'm not that mediocre!". "Protagonist gone, I know, I know... I'll bring back Palpy and COMPLETELY DESTROY the original arc!"
