    Because providing a scalable video streaming service is much more difficult than most people think.

    Quick update for anyone curious. Android App seems to be working for me now. I still haven't really watched anything, but it's no longer a wall of errors when navigating through the app like it was a few hours ago.

    there was some info I found in a search that stated the app would be available upon release on certain platforms - there were not many listed though. Seemed like all apple products were listed, Roku as well:

    Disney+ Streaming Service supported devices

    Amazon Fire TV and Fire tablets
    Roku boxes and sticks and TVs
    Google Chromecast and Chromecast-enabled devices
    iPhone, iPad, iPod touch
    Android phones, Android TV
    Apple TV (integrated with the TV app, available as in-app purchase)
    Microsoft Xbox One
    Sony PlayStation 4
    Android-based Sony Smart TVs
    Chromebooks will be supported
    Samsung and LG devices

    Personally if Disney did it right...from the beginning - anyone who signed up in advance should have received an email which stated what devices would have Disney app from the start - so that we could have had them...I think this was a mis-step

    I'm running it on my Roku which I've had for a few years, seems to work seamlessly so no complaints. I like my little Roku, it was cheap and works well for running Netflix and Youtube, Prime and now Disney+

    I'm thinking I might upgrade to a 4K TV this year, and I might buy another (newer, 4K compatible) Roku - Or maybe I'll buy some sort of smart TV with all that shit built in, who knows.

    No, its driven by mobile apps only.

    Its a bit of a different model from a smart tv or kindle fire. There is no on-TV navigation of apps that you scroll through. You fire up the relevant app on your phone, cast to the TV (using an icon in the app), and then select the media to play on the phone. You continue to use the phone app to control media playback.

    When casting from a browser window where the CC has no support for the service, youre streaming across your network twice - once to the browser and back to the CC. But if the service has CC support, the CC will stream video from it directly; youre just using your mobile device for control.

    So its just a matter of preference. Personally, I despise having to navigate through a menu on a TV, or to speak - or worse, select on screen keys - to search for stuff. With a CC you do all of that on your phone and then cast the media to the TV just to play it.

    Id check what services it supports before taking the plunge though. They only recently added Prime support (because Amazon and Google has a feud).

    I've been sampling different old favorites (and The Mandalorian of course), but I'm most pleased with Mickey Mouse, the recent TV show. The animation is beautiful and it's silly and fun. It's got close to 100 episodes since 2013.

    RCA 50" 4k Smart TV with Roku, $260ish delivered from Amazon. Not the best best best TV I've ever seen, but its pretty damn good. I now own three of them.

    LOL I just posted alot in the SW thread on this!!! Doh, should have known there was a seperate thread!!! loll


    EDIT: I expected more new episodic content like "The Mandalorian". I also expected a full season of that show to go online on the 12th instead of whatever schedule they have (I assume weekly) they have in mind.

    However, I bought it mainly for the grandkids and they (and I) couldn't be more excited and satisfied with what is available to them now. I assume they intend to deliver quite a bit more content as we go from here. All those classic films and shows in one place!!! Whoo Hoo!!! I'm a big hit with the grand children!!!! LOL LOL

    So, so far so good. I expect BIG things from this service in the future!!!!

    Another good show I just discovered is The Legend of the Three Caballeros, done in the style of classic Donald Duck cartoons! I love these modern interpretations of classic series, like the new Mickey Mouse series, too.
