Making a place to talk about the Disney+ service in general because I want to hear from people that have been using it.

What has your experience been like so far? How is the ease/quality of use and service?

I'm loving it! I signed up the first day. No regrets. I've used it both on an iPad and on my TV and both ways have been easy to use. I haven't had any issues at all. There's lots of content that I like, with more new stuff coming for franchises that I like, so signing up was an easy decision for me.

The best part? Having baby Yoda as my avatar! :hug: It used to be Minnie Mouse (which was nice) but I noticed the other day that I could have baby Yoda instead and changed it immediately. \:D/

Have you used the download for offline feature? I just learned that was a possibility and it's an absolute game changer in regard to whether I may eventually sign up for the service.

Yes, I like to keep something downloaded on my iPad in case of a power outage, so I downloaded "The Empire Strikes Back" as a favourite that I know I will enjoy if I don't have any other options. ;) I have reliable internet access at home, so I don't use the download feature regularly, which I think is what you'd like to do, but I have no reason to think that wouldn't work. It is awesome to have the option!

Yes; I don't think my internet can probably do reliable streaming, but if I could queue up some things to be downloaded overnight and then watch them as videos I would start seriously considering signing up for at least a month or two.

It seems to only be an option for the phone or tablet versions though? I would want to watch the stuff on my tv. How does the download work, does it make a file on the device that you can directly play with a media program or does it need played through the app? If it's just a regular file I could move it from my phone onto the hard drive my DVR plays from and watch it through that maybe.

I'm not a tech genius, so others are welcome to chime in.

As far as I can tell, the file has to be played on the device that it's downloaded on using the Disney Plus app. I couldn't figure out any other way to view or play the file. I won't guarantee that means there are no other ways, but not that I can see. Sorry.

Thanks for looking into it! I had seen an article about options for watching offline on a computer when download is only available in the mobile app and it said to download on a phone and move the file to a computer to play but I guess they didn't actually check if that is possible they just assumed.

Maybe there is a way that I don't know how to do. You could always try the free trial and see if you can make it work, and then let me know I was wrong. ;)
