J.R. Trivigno III, Staff Writer

The Walt Disney Company recently released their new streaming service, Disney+.

Disney+, the new streaming service, has access to a wide selection of Disney content, including Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, National Geographic, and more. In addition, Disney will also be releasing original content on the service, including “The Mandalorian,” a Star Wars tv show.

On the first day of streaming, over 10 million users subscribed to the service. To put that into perspective, CBS All Access reached 8 million subscribers in February of this year. Some are even beginning to think Dis we will reach 60 million subscribers two years before previously thought.

Despite the amount of content on the service, several issues have become apparent to users. Many errors occurred on the first day Disney+ was operational. “The demand for #DisneyPlus has exceeded our highest expectations,” The Disney+ Twitter account said. “We are so pleased you’re excited to watch all your favorites and are working quickly to resolve any current issues.” Following this, Disney altered “The Simpsons” aspect ratio for all 30 seasons from the traditional 16:9 to 4:3, resulting in several scenes having content not visible, sparking backlash, resulting in Disney claiming they will restore the show back to its original aspect ratio.

Disney+ starts at $6.99 a month, undercutting main competitor Netflix, at $8.99 a month, both offering different bundles.
