    I am hoping it will show Tuesday, having paid for the year. Also not showing on iOS devices either currently.

    Yeah the apps have not appeared as yet. If you have a VPN you can watch the US version already from a browser

    I was going to pay for the year in advance just for The Mandalorian. Then I read that The Mandalorian release schedule would be one episode a week apart from the first week when there would be two. Then I read that Disney+ would be available at £7.99 a month as opposed to an annual subscription. Iím not interested in any other content on the platform

    I have to be honest and say that I do fully appreciate having one of these ĎFirst World Problemsí at the moment :)

    I have got a Fire Stick this week which supports Disney+ which I can use on my Sony 2014. The app is not available until 24th.

    My other Sony from 2015 is not an Android tv so I cannot install the app (or any app). But have saved the browser for Disney and so hopefully should be able to view via this.

    Otherwise if the Disney app on my android mobile allows casting to my Sony 2015 tv, I may be able to watch this way. I can cast You Tube for example.

    If rambling are a bit confusing, I am a complete novice to this new technology.

    I have a 2015 Samsung tv which wonít have the app, but itís hooked up to Sky who will have it operating like Netflix through the Sky Q box. Also have a Philips Android Tv which will have the app, and various iOS devices to stream from. I donít think the apps are launched until the 24th, not showing anywhere as yet. The Mandalorian is excellent, Iíve already seen it but still signing up as itís worth a re-watch, and £49.99 for all that content considering any random tv series dvd box set used to be £20 upwards seems a bargain to me, even without all the self isolation!!

    My Panasonic doesnít support it so I installed on PS4 Pro. However HDR and Dolby Vision are not available. Any ideas?

    £5.99 a month from Disney, think you can get it for a year for £60 up-front

    I got the £50 up-front deal that ended yesterday - £4.17/month is good value to me

    I've downloaded the app on my Android phone and the Samsung TV so far and they work fine. The selection is as expected. However pretty disappointed that they haven't just released all Mandalorian chapters and the clone wars series is 3 weeks behind the US.

    I get 4K HDR Dolby Vision and Dolby Digital audio (I don’t have Atmos) on my LG OLED55B6 using the LG app and when using my Apple TV on the same TV. I do not get Dolby Vision when using my Sky Q box.

    Dolby Vision is HDR. I don't get HLG HDR either. I can't get HDR on the PS4 or Sky Q. I do have HDR support for games on the PS4.

    I know. But according the specs content is in HDR, HDR+, HDR10, Dolby Vision.

    I am also aware that PS4 Pro can only do standard HDR, but it does support Dolby Atmos

    None available though...

    Thinking about it, I have only ever seen Dolby Atmos logo appear on the screen when playing DA Blu-rays.

    Hello

    Any differences between the US and UK version like with Netflix?

    There are some differences due to Disney having different rights agreements in different countries. At some point in the future when Disney has clawed back all its rights they will be the same. I have no examples of content on one but not on the other though as there doesnít seem to be a way to see what is on the US version from here. What I can say is there is a lot of content on it.

    It looks good if you have young kids, but (new) content for adults seems a bit scarce?

    Thatís because itís for kids. Disney have another streaming service called Hulu which is intended for an older audience. Hulu is only in the US at the moment but is planned to launch in the rest of the world in the next couple of years as rights revert to Disney.
