Life Disney + has launch problems By weekster Posted on November 13, 2019 2 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ The new Disney + streaming service experienced technical problems with the big launch on Tuesday. The company issued a brief statement on Tuesday afternoon acknowledging that the new service in the US was suffering from teething problems. “The demand has exceeded our expectations,” the company reports to The Hollywood Reporter. On Twitter on Tuesday during the day, there was frequent complaint that it was difficult to log in to the new service. The website Downdetector.com reported in the first hours that the service was operational, almost ten thousand complaints. The problems would also occur to a lesser extent in the Netherlands. Here, however, Disney + has been running a test in recent months; from mid-September, Dutch people could already subscribe and watch part of the ‘old’ content that Disney + offers for free. Fans also complained that certain popular titles, such as the Star Wars films and the new series The Mandalorian, were not available. If titles were downloadable, it sometimes took a minute. Disney’s new streaming service offers nearly five hundred films and 7500 episodes from hundreds of series. This includes films from Disney, animation studio Pixar, Star Wars and Marvel and thirty seasons of hit series The Simpsons. In addition, Disney + will launch new content at a rapid pace. According to a Telecompaper survey, around 660,000 people in the Netherlands would have taken out a subscription to Disney + until Tuesday. These figures have not been confirmed by Disney itself; the company does not provide insight into the number of concluded subscriptions.
