    God forbid that ever happens!! If it did I would have to send them to live with you in your shed or something!!! Fortunately, Grandpa has taught them well and they are both avid, Yankee fans!!! They both love, Judge.

    Satisfied????? lol lol lol

    Wait a minute! At your age, wouldn't your grandkids be in their 20's?

    May I solicit a little help from some of you more "Tech" oriented folks out there?

    I watch my streaming apps on my TV. I have a firestick to do this with. The other day, my internet went down for an hour or so. When it came back all the apps worked fine except for Disney+. Now, I can access, DTV on my laptop but I keep getting an error code (42 I think it was) trying to view DTV thru the firestick and my TV. Everything else works fine and the hi-speed internet connection is working fine.

    Any thoughts or suggestions on how to get the DTV app working again? I was so looking forward to watching the Obi-Wan dinale and a rewatch of Dr. Strange but had to watch them on my laptop. Of course, DTV doesn't offer any telephone based help only FAQ. I'm an old fart what can I say. One DTV suggestion was to pull the firestick and re-insert it but, I'm worried I'll lose passwords fr the other apps and getting them again would be a real chore. I pay for Amazon and Disney, my daughter pays for Netflix, my son pays for Apple TV and Directv is just too much of a complicated issue to risk losing the PW. It's a whole thing with AT&T/Directv and my phone acct. Trust me you don't want to know the PITA that was to finally get right!!

    HELP!!!???

    Hey Wild Bill,

    I have a firestick too, and sometimes I run into the same issues. If you go into your app menu, you can find and highlight Disney +, or your DTV app. It should give you various options, but if you click "force close" and "clear cache" it usually does the job.

    I have one of those 3-year promos at $140 that was given out before the launch and it should renew at the old price, before the increase.

    I just got my Disney+ renewal email - annual subscription for $79.99 or about $6.66/month - so I still guess that is a pretty decent price. So I updated my payment info on the website (stuff changes in 3 years) - and the renewal subscription price on my account says $69.99 annually - so we will see. Then they offer the bundle with HULU for $13.99/month. Not gonna switch - just stay at the lower price and then see what I am billed and where it goes next year.

    Hopefully add free and still better than $10.99/mo

    Did anyone here get a Disney Mystery Box? Apparently it was offered to those who extended their yearly contract...

    My boss and her fam got one, there was some cool stuff in there!

    Disney+ is asking their subscribers to identify their genders. Not for kids under 13 and you can opt out but the reasoning is weird to me.
    Why does Disney+ need my birthdate and gender?
    The real reason is advertising.

    Yeap, it's all about the data. They want to know how to market their future products and ads.

    It's still weird as hell though.

    Makes sense if it's the ad version, but useless if it's the regular version.

    With a date of birth, full name, and gender, there's usually enough information to find a customer's public identity and record - date of birth, legal name, marital status, history of residence addresses, outstanding liens, homes purchased or rented, etc. They can then connect your viewing history to your public identity, and sell that information as market data. Buyers of that information can correlate that viewing data with data they get from other companies, also tied to your public identity.

    So these simple pieces of information form an anchor point to which all data tracked about you across multiple platforms can be tied, increasing the market value of that data.

    Even if Disney don't advertise to you personally, your viewing data is worth more to the companies they sell it to, if they can tie it unambiguously to your identity.
