 Disney+ Launch In South Africa And Hit With Technical Glitches!

The service appears to have suffered a number of technical issues hours after it was officially launched on Tuesday. The rocky start to Disney+ is somewhat awkward for the company, given the amount of attention surrounding the services launch. Disney streaming rival Disney Plus launched on Tuesday, and some users are already complaining about glitches. Walt Disneys long-awaited debut of its new streaming video service was hampered by technical issues and crashes for some users, even as it was stirring up excitement across the internet.

The new Star Wars TV series The Mandalorian was all the buzz on social media, with Twitter users celebrating the fact they could finally sign up for and watch its new streaming video service, after months of carefully crafted promotions by Walt Disneys marketing machine. Walt Disney Co.s new streaming TV service, Disney+, is off to a hot start, signing 10 million subscribers in the first day, the Walt Disney Co. announced on Wednesday. Priced at $7 per month, its new streaming video service is a gamble Walt Disneys betting it could draw up to 90 million subscribers globally within five years. In the research note, I said that Walt Disney Co.s look to be coming out of the gate with unparalleled content and massive brand/distribution power, making The House of Mouse a legit streaming rival in its early days, and that this suggests that the company may reach the 60-90 million subscriber mark before the 2024 goal.

Frank Pallotta of CNN said The Walt Disney Co. has again packaged up its treasure trove of favorite content, making it a worthy competitor for the other services in the streaming marketplace. With the assistance from BAMTech in the rollout of ESPN+ at the beginning of 2018, and The Walt Disney Companys streaming distribution agreement with Netflix ending in 2019, Disney took advantage of the technology being developed for ESPN+ to build a Disney-branded streaming service featuring its own content. Walt Disneys purchased a controlling interest in BAMTech, a leader in streaming technologies, to operate the backend for its own online services such as Disney+. Alongside the acquisition, The Walt Disney Company announced plans for a second, Disney-branded, direct-to-consumer service that draws on its entertainment content, to launch after the company ends its existing distribution deal with Netflix in 2019.

Disney+ marks an enormous gamble for The Walt Disney Co., pitting it directly against the on-demand services like Netflix and Amazon Prime that have upended Hollywoods media landscape. For Disney and its CEO, Bob Iger, streaming service Disney+ represents a significant change in the companys business focus, and perhaps the key to its future.

Calling Disney Plus a must-have streaming service seems somewhat premature at this point — many of its biggest originals are still waiting for releases, and those will end up shaping the services outlook. It is fair to say, however, that the originals were a little sluggish during the first year of Disney Plus overall – and Disney Plus is just a bit too child-centric to make Disney Plus seem like the streaming destination it should. How well Disney Plus does long-term will largely depend on how fast other content comes on Disney Plus, but the good news is the service is built on a really strong platform, and at its low-end subscription price, it is worth giving it a shot.

That is not especially great news for streaming-newcomers, though Disney Pluss subscriber numbers tell the story, suggesting the content is, for Disney+s 10 million-or-so subscribers, well worth the onset of subscription fatigue. While the streams are standard fare on other streaming services, it is actually pretty impressive that Disney Plus was able to pull this off considering how old some of those movies and shows are, and demonstrates that Disney has put considerable thought into overall image quality for content.

Disney (DIS) fans looking to enjoy all of the content the Disney+ streaming service has to offer are instead met with erroneous pages featuring the very Disney(DIS) Wreck-It Ralph. Some users on social media reported a litany of difficulties in running the app and watching content on the service.

A number of early Disney+ subscribers in South Africa reported being logged in to others accounts Wednesday. Disney is working aggressively to address an issue affecting access to a portion of series episodes for some Disney+ subscribers. Disney has confirmed that there is a problem impacting its Disney+ service, which is causing episodes to go missing on a number of popular shows on its service, including some from its Disney, Pixar, and Marvel properties. The problem is causing episodes to go missing on Disney+ service, which is causing episodes to go missing on a number of popular shows on its service, including some from its Disney, Pixar, and Marvel properties.

At the time of its launch, Disney+ was missing a large number of titles as it was locked in to other streaming contracts. In April 2020, it was announced that Disney+ original content would be licensed to pay TV and streaming operator OSN starting on April 9, across 17 countries in the Middle East and North Africa region, and The Walt Disney Company noted it had no current plans to launch Disney+ as a stand-alone service in the region in the foreseeable future.

If you access Disney+ from South Africa, for instance, you are given little more than an option to click on a button which means that you will be the first to know when Disney Plus expands their streaming service to your country.
