Yesterday was the launch of Disney Plus..

Per avclub,

It may have suffered some technical hiccups on launch, but Disney+ is already massively successful for Disney, which reports that over 10 million people signed up for the streaming service in its first day.

Anybody here signed up yesterday to be part of that 10 million user base??

wow. 10 million in one day. Impressive.

Yep, signed up and watched The Mandalorian twice.;D  Also, all the Star Wars have been given the 4K DV/DA love.  The Mouse is bringing out the big guns.

Congrats on joining the other 10 million users.

How are the older shows? Do they look good?

I didn't sign up, but my daughter did and I'm using her account. Watched the first episode of "The Mandelorian," which is very good, but the show paused 6 times in 40 minutes. Lots of day one glitches. Also, their HDR doesn't broadcast the MaxCLL and MaxFALL of the stream, so the gamma is a bit too dark for my JVC to handle the tonemapping properly. Hopefully that's something they fix, but then again, Disney is notorious for NOT providing it on the UHD discs too :(

I ended up watching some of Episode 1 and Episode IV just to see how they did with the 4K. In both cases, it looked about Blu-ray quality, but they did do a good job with the Atmos upmixes.

It allows up to 4 users on the account, so it's within the TOS.

I signed up for the 7 day free trial via my Apple TV 4K.    I don't intend to continue the subscription; for now at least.

I took a peek at several titles; I wasn't that impressed with The Mandalorian first episode.

When I got to Toy Story 3, I couldn't stop watching.  I have never seen any streaming source look this good.  I watched it all the way through.

Au contraire mon frère.  While the OT will never be reference demo quality, this is the best they've ever looked.  In fact, I read this is a complete 4K remaster.  Watching the Cloud City battle in Empire was a blast.  The downside is you can see how cheesy some of the sets and mattes are.  Makes it fun tho.  Plus, Atmos audio.  C'mon man.  This is a win no matter how you slice it, yo. ;)

Thousands of hacked Disney+ accounts are already for sale on hacking forums

Hackers and now "fake" HDR.  The Mouse will not stand for this aggression, man.:D

Hopefully Disney + uses multi factor authentication. The only way to go with streaming for protection. :)
