    BTW, you can see the content offered on the first link. I must say I'm not impressed, you really need to be into this Disney stuff. Of course they do offer a couple of classics (see IMDB links), but that's about it. I think people will probably combine Disney+ with Netflix, especially if they have kids.

    "Disney+ Hit by Technical Issues on Launch Day...

    The company issued a statement, which said in part that demand 'exceeded our high expectations'...

    The Walt Disney Co.’s Disney+ streaming service appeared to be hit by technical difficulties on its launch day Tuesday...

    Downdetector.com's map view showed problems in the U.S., parts of Canada and the Netherlands...

    Some U.S. users were allowed to purchase Disney+ on their computer, but once paid for, the streaming service would not load on smart TVs or on the PlayStation app.

    An error icon would appear each time, showing Mickey Mouse and his dog, Pluto, in space outfits. It would then force users to exit the service...
