Disney’s streaming service begins with troubles

Disney+ is shaping up to be one of the hottest streaming services around, but if you own an Android phone and have been trying to download the app, you may be running into some roadblocks.

There's also the small matter of the service hosting the first-ever live-action Star Wars TV series. Five percent of the survey pool said they were likely to cancel their Netflix subscription once Disney Plus launches.

Disney Plus launched Tuesday to stream movies and originals from Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar and other Disney properties.

Users received error messages featuring Disney characters including Mickey Mouse and Wreck-It Ralph.

In a recent tweet, Disney+ admits that the demand has exceeded their "highest expectations".

"We are pleased by this incredible response and are working to quickly resolve the current user issue".

According to a recent report by The Verge some people who have signed up to Disney+ are unable to connect to the streaming service. "We appreciate your patience", a Disney+ spokesperson said in a statement.

Disney has projected 60 million to 90 million subscribers globally by 2024, with about a third of those customers living in the U.S. Disney+ is now available in the U.S., Canada and the Netherlands, and will launch in New Zealand and Australia next week.

Whether the issue behind the lack of some of our favorite heroes is beyond the control of Disney+ or not, we can only hope that in the coming weeks or months, Disney will have the opportunity to add more options when it comes to icon selection. One valid concern noted here is that people on free trials aren't getting the time they were promised to try out the service, as they couldn't log in or watch today. A bundle including ESPN+ and Hulu costs $13. The service is also offering a free year-long subscription if you buy an Apple device.

The old way of licensing rights worked by territories, and a distributor such as Disney or Warner Bros. would sign agreements that locked up packs of their titles with a broadcaster or streamer.

In fact, there are 7 movies from Marvel that are not now available on the streaming service and we have the reason why.

The Empire called Netflix Inc. that lords over the streaming media universe will lose a lot of battles to the gaggle of rebels like Disney and Apple arrayed against it but is in no danger of being toppled from its number one perch in the short-term.
