Disney plus is dreadful, I got at as a like Star Wars.

Out of all the streaming platforms it has by far the worst content and least diverse. It’s all just kid movies. They spent all this money on content when they brought fox but refuse to show it as it’s not family friendly. Just locked it up in the old Disney vault so you can’t watch it anywhere else

Also they have ruined the Simpsons by changing the aspect ratio and trying to stretch the early seasons to 16:9

Personally I don’t like Marvel but unless you are a Star Wars or Marvel fan do not bother

Major downside is no mature content, which seems to be housed on Hulu in the states.

The states version of this comes with Hulu and ESPN (though you pay extra for it.)
Beginning of the end of Hulu original programming. Once critical darlings like The Handmaid's Tale end their run I suspect.

They claim that they are going to increase investment in Hulu. Just got no plans to make it international
I think Hulu will become where Disney put "adult" content from the vault. In practice part of Disney+ for a dollar or two extra but different branding. Comcast is selling their minority share and starting their own streaming service.

Yeah I agree that’s the plan but there are no plans to expand Hulu out of the USA

It'll take a while for all the Fox and Hulu overseas rights deals to expire.
Same with Disney as they had a lot of content tied up. There were things people expected like Family Guy and American dad that aren’t on a streaming platform here at all

So far so good, the smart tv app works like a breeze. Quite reasonable pricing too I’d say compared to other options.

Tried watching some Simpsons this evening and I must say the full widescreen took some getting used to.

Signed up for a 7 day trial.

I want to take off auto renew but it said it can't be done through the app I have to go to the Disney website and to go my account details and turn off auto renew.

So I jumped on my PC,put in my log in details but it was prompting me to sign up again when I already have what's going on there?
