I cancelled, it auto expires now on renewal date. While new releases can only be watched on D+ the moment they come out, they're streamable elsewhere in a day or two.

it says only on new subs but we can always try. turn off auto renew, let it expire then sub again? if it works, great. if it doesn't, no loss

Tenet box office results have really scared studios off, Disney is pushing Black Widow, Eternals and oher films to even later next year in what must be crushing to the movie theatre business. They haven't moved Pixar's Soul yet but that's probably because they plan to release it on Disney+ for purchase like Mulan.

The biggest complaint I see about Disney+ is lack of original content and I don't think this really qualifies (but it's probably faster & cheaper than traditional scripted content)

Just as I thought Soul to be released exclusively on Disney+ on Dec 25. But I didn't see the no additional cost angle coming, clear sign that the Mulan release experiment has been viewed as a failure.

I'm going to renew my monthly subscription to Disney+ later this month and also pay for a second month, so I and a friend can be current with the Mandalorian and catch up on other programs. Was going to wait until mid-November but I don't want to behind this time with the show. I have enjoyed looking for new trailers for Season 2. Wish I could buy all The Child stuff I'd want including that ugly sweater from Hot Topic.

Does anyone else get stuck on a blue screen when launching Disney+ from their LG OLED TVs? For some reason, I get stuck on a blue screen whenever I launch Disney+ on my LG C9 tv.

$89.99 CAD all-in.

I expect Disney will follow Netflix and raise their subscription prices soon.

I think I was charged 90+tax today. I had a $70 iTunes balance, then about $30 came out of my PayPal. So damn hard to find the actual detailed invoice!

Or was I charged tax cuz I went through iTunes?

If you were charged tax you shouldn't have and I would escalate that with Apple.

I think I’m starting to remember, all of these streaming services get charged tax when subscribing via iTunes. You’re still a bit ahead of u use the 20% off iTunes card from the Costco sales.
