    Get a VPN (or even just do a free trial with one) and you’ll be all good. Your IP address will make it seem like you’re in the US if you set it that way and then you’ll be able to get Disney+.

    Or you could just go to a site like putlocker or something and watch things for free.

    It doesn’t work with just a VPN. You need card details with a US address to even get the free trial.

    The only way about it for people in the UK besides pirating it is to create a new Apple account, download Disney+ and then buy a US Apple gift card and use the gift card as an in app purchase.

    To add to this. It's a similar story on Android. Create a US play store account and download Disney+ that way.

    I managed to link my PayPal account and paid for it that way

    Also I had difficulty with some VPNs. NordVPN and expressVPN wouldn't work. However surfshark and X-vpn work well. Just your luck I guess :shrug:

    So I’m wondering if ABC stuff will go on Disney+ or be Hulu only.

    Something like Modern Family, Black-ish, Fresh off the Boat (all three are produced by FOX or ABC), etc would be a great additions to the Disney+ lineup with them being live action sitcoms that are aimed at adults, but are still safe enough for Disney+ considering they were on network television and are TV-PG.

    Of those three, Modern Family is AAA content. That’s the kind of content that can really drive people to sign up for a streaming service (think Game of Thrones on HBO). I would think Disney would push that show specifically to Hulu, since Disney+ can get new subscribers more easily than Hulu right now

    Yeah, mostly likely. Especially since a purge of content will be coming to Hulu in the next few years. They already lost Simpsons to D+, they'll be losing South Park to HBO Max, NBC Sitcoms to Peacock, etc, etc. Hulu is gonna need everything than can get, which is why the FX content exclusively coming to Hulu is a big deal for the service (along with FX producing Hulu originals).

    In an interesting thing to point out, the Television series of The Muppets has the ABC logo on it.

    I could see eventually, select ABC shows from the past and present pop in (like for instance--Agent's of Shield, Modern Family, and others). It could very well be something they're saving until later on in the first year, IMO.

    Disney's quietly added a resume feature and a resume category.

    I mean, this is what this thread is for. A Disney+ update thread. With them being in their infancy and not adding much besides new episodes of their originals, I thought I’d mention it.

    Obviously its no Oscar caliber content, but I do know that we have a lot of people who enjoy musicals on here so figured it was worth mentioning.

    Personally, I missed it live and wouldn’t have seemed it out otherwise after its original performance, but I’ll definitely check it out on here.

    Jokes don’t always translate the way they’re meant through text so I just took it wrong I guess.

    Don't subject that evil onto me, Nick.

    __

    To throw the ball in the court of bringing up, Disney+ is adding Continue Watching to the app via their servers.

    Yes, and this is the evil that Disney+ did to me today, making me think I could watch Chapter 4 of Mandalorian.

    “One Day at Disney” is premiering tomorrow, which will be a documentary focusing on all parts of the WDC. This will eventually be a weekly docuseries.
