From time to time, streaming services such as Netflix remove shows from its catalog. This is normal as licenses expire and as such, shows are dropped. However, it seems that Disney Plus, which has only been around for a few months, is already removing some shows from its catalog, which definitely isn’t a good sign for subscribers.
Earlier this year, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk had hinted that video streaming platforms such as Netflix and YouTube would soon be coming to Tesla vehicles. Given that you can already play games on Tesla’s infotainment system, we suppose it’s not a stretch to think that you would also be able to stream video as well.
While Disney might have been late to the streaming game, they certainly have managed to capture the attention of many with its flagship Star Wars series, The Mandalorian. The reviews of the series have been fantastic and the first season just ended rather amazingly (if you’ve seen it, you can probably agree).
So Disney Plus was only just launched but it seems that in less than a week, the service has since been hacked where thousands of Disney customers have had their accounts compromised and stolen, where they have appeared on the dark web where they are available for purchase.
With there being so many streaming services available in the market today, you might think that customers who be apprehensive when it comes to signing up for yet another streaming service. Now, Disney is kind of late to the game, but it seems that despite them being late, they are racking up customers at breakneck speeds.
Password sharing is when users of a service share a single account. This is usually frowned upon and is typically not allowed under the terms of service agreement, but people do it anyway because it saves them from having multiple subscriptions. We’ve seen some companies attempt to clamp down on this behavior, but Disney seems to be OK with it, for now.
While streaming services are exciting, the problem is that in terms of availability, they can be limited. Take for example with Hulu, the service is still not available in many parts of the world, leaving some users frustrated and turning to piracy in order to watch certain shows. However, Disney seems to be working to prevent that from happening.
Disney Plus has yet to be launched. The service is expected to go live in the middle of November, which is this month, but it seems that it could already be potentially off to a great start. This is according to data from Jumpshot, it has been suggested that the upcoming streaming service is said to have racked up over 1 million subscribers already.
Update – It turns out that Iger’s statements were in reference to something else. Disney has confirmed to The Verge that shows will disappear from downloads if it leaves Disney Plus, so it looks like it will be pretty much similar to all other streaming platforms.The problem with a lot of streaming services is that for the most part, they tend to rely on licenses for movies and TV shows.

Thinking about getting a Disney Plus subscription? The good news is that if you’re a Verizon customer, it seems that the carrier will be giving away a free year’s subscription to Disney Plus. If you’ve already pre-ordered your Disney Plus subscription, not to worry because that purchase will be put on hold.
So Disney Plus will be launching next month and given the breadth of Disney’s catalogue and the various franchises under its umbrella, it is understandable that many are eagerly anticipating its release. However, before you get too excited, it seems that there is a chance that Disney Plus might not work on your device.
Disney+ will be launching next month and we’re sure that are many are excited for it. After all, a lot of us grew up watching Disney shows as well as the other brands that Disney has under its umbrella, like Marvel and Star Wars. That being said, if you’re skeptical about whether or not to sign up for the service because you’re not sure what to expect, Disney is here […]
When Disney Plus and Apple TV Plus were announced with prices cheaper than what Netflix has been charging its customers, it was starting to feel like Netflix could be in trouble. However, it turns out that maybe Netflix might not have to be as concerned as they should, at least that’s what survey seems to suggest.
One of the selling points of the upcoming Disney Plus subscription is that it is expected to play home to quite a few original live-action TV shows based on various Marvel characters. However, if you have been skeptical about their success, especially based on previous and current series, you might not have anything to worry about.
