Verizon is giving Unlimited customers 12 months of Disney+ for free

  Verizon is giving Unlimited customers 12 months of Disney+ for free Verizon (Engadget's parent company) is offering 12 months of Disney+ to all of its new and existing 4G LTE and 5G Unlimited wireless customers. New Verizon Fios Home Internet and 5G Home Internet customers will get 12 months of the new streaming service too. The offer begins November 12th, the same day Disney+ launches. This makes Verizon the exclusive Disney+ carrier, and it could help Disney+ better compete with Apple TV+, which launches on November 1st. Apple recently announced that anyone who buys an iPhone, iPad, Apple TV or Mac will get a free one-year subscription to its service.

It is expected that Disney+ will have approximately 7,000 television episodes and 500 films,[37] Disney+ will launch in Australia, New Zealand and Puerto Rico on November 19, 2019, and the Upon launch , Disney+ received technical difficulties. Users complained getting error messages of

Disney+ just launched last Tuesday, and already it appears to be a huge success. Over 10 million subscribers signed up in the first 24 hours, although we should point out that the service offers a seven-day free trial. Over time, Disney+ will roll out new features and additional viewing options.

The Disney+ launch wasn’t perfect last week, but the service is certainly a success for Disney, with as many as 10 million users having already signed up. Disney+ is cheaper than Netflix, and already features plenty of interesting content that users got to experience from day one.

And while Disney+ does come with a feature I’ve wanted on Netflix for years, it also comes without a critical feature that I’d demand from any streaming service — one that’s been on Netflix all along.

A few days ago, we learned that you can disable auto-playing trailers on Disney+. There’s nothing that I hate more on Netflix than having to scroll as quickly as possible to stop clips from playing automatically. Yes, you can mute Netflix trailers, but there’s no setting to prevent them from playing.

Disney+ just unveiled a secret weapon in its fight against Netflix

  Disney+ just unveiled a secret weapon in its fight against Netflix Most of the attention and excitement thus far around the imminent launch of Disney's new streaming service Disney+, which launches November 12, has to do with the massive pile of content that will be available as well as all the impressive sign-up deals that have been rolled out. We mentioned the latest such deal just this morning, in fact -- an offer from Verizon that will give every unlimited customer one year of Disney+ for free. Meanwhile,Meanwhile, speaking at Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit on Tuesday, Disney CEO Bob Iger disclosed yet another feature of the service that serves as one more reason to sign up for it. And it’s a feature that also strikes a direct blow at Netflix.

Iger had previously said Disney+ would be “substantially cheaper” than Netflix, and analysts had Wall Street generally has been bullish on the Disney+ strategy — although there have been looming The experience, which features the voice of Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, is launching at 130

But the company has also started carving deals to get the service in the hands of more people But executives have said that they intend for Disney Plus to be supported by all major devices that An epic Twitter thread claimed to include every show and movie that would be available at launch , a

But Disney+ lacks a crucial feature that every service should have, one that I’ve come to appreciate a lot while binging shows. The Continue Watching feature is the only way to enjoy shows at home. It allows you to pick up where you left off as soon as you start Netflix, and it’s helpful to see exactly how many episodes kept playing after you fell asleep. Unfortunately, this feature is nowhere to be found on Disney+.

The good news is that the feature is coming, as Disney confirmed to ComicBook that it plans to launch it soon. There’s no timetable for it, but Disney is working on it. It’s unclear why Disney left the feature out to begin with, considering that Netflix and other services will show you lists of what you’ve been watching and where you left off. But better late than never.

Disney+ finally got the missing feature that was driving everyone crazy .
The Disney+ launch wasn’t without issue, but the early access problems didn’t stop more than 10 million customers from subscribing. At just $6.99 per month, Disney+ is probably a must-have streaming service in any household, given the massive amount of great content that it offers. However, subscribers quickly discovered an annoying flaw with Disney+, as the app lacked a few features that every streaming app should ship with, including a simple feature that makes streaming so much better: Continue Watching. Disney promised a fix, and it looks like the feature is finally rolling out beginning today.
