089: Disney Plus or Minus?

Last Year Jeff had a rant (nothing new there) about Disney + and their staggered release pattern. He said it would be a disaster outside of America. Well, COVID proved him wrong as the UK had a record number of subscribers when lockdown hit.

What else was he wrong about? Find out on our Disney + podcast discussion. On this podcast Phil the bear (a subscriber) joins the team to talk about the release and impact of Disney+. Neil and Graham have also signed up. Jeff hasn’t, apparently this is a protest as one of the Disney classics has not been added to the service. Oh, and Jeff, it never will…

Despite that one omission, many of the great Disney and Pixar movies can be found here. Plus (so that’s what the + stands for), you can watch the Star Wars films, the Marvel movies and The Simpsons. Great value for money – or is it, we talk about that as well.

Also under discussion are such topics as what is happening with the Fox library, can Disney show the more adult content from their own and the Fox libraries and what shows & films are coming later this year? A wide ranging conversation with some intriguing facts thrown in along the way.

Despite all that, Jeff still hasn’t signed up for the service – maybe he is waiting for Neil to get him an annual subscription for a birthday present.
