Today sees the launch of Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+ and as expected, the sheer number of people trying to login to watch the latest Disney movies and shows is causing technical issues.
We are getting multiple reports across our Disney+ Facebook Group and on other social media that users are struggling to login or if they are in, suffering from errors while searching, making watchlists or trying to view content.
These technical issues aren’t effecting everyone as other users are reporting no issues. So it might just be a local issue. However thousands of users are reporting problems with Disney+.
Having technical issues with launching online services isn’t uncommon, most online video games have struggled in the past and Disney also had technical issues with their D23 website in August when they opened up pre-orders to Disney+.
Disney+ was working first thing this morning, however as more of America and Canada woke up and started logging in, the more problems have been reported.
As with all new tech launches, expect things to settle down as the excitement over launch dies down and Disney get their support teams onto the problem.
If you are suffering from problems, I would recommend waiting today as they will be flooded with emails and phone calls.
However it’s still a major embarrassment for Disney+ to suffer these issues on its first day.
Are you suffering from issues using Disney+?
