What do you think about Disney’s new streaming service? Have you already signed up? What will be the first thing you watch? Let us know in the comments!
No Amazon Firestick?! FAIL. Typical of Disney to botch the launch like Star Wars Land.
I do like using the fire stick but it’s not a huge deal if Disney plus is not on it. Not every device will have every streaming app out there. Regardless, I am very excited for Disney plus and know that it will be great.
When will the app be available to download?
On launch day, Nov. 12.
