    Is the ESPN+ package available now or is that coming later?

    Yeah, according to their page, their servers are getting hit HARD. I'm guessing 5 million people are trying to stream Hannah Montana all at once.

    We tried the "Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors" movie and couldn't get through.
    Doc McStuffins is winning, though.

    I can only imagine what happens for anyone clicking Endgame.

    Got it set up on the Apple 4K this morning and everything is working fine, though the Star Wars section didn't work for a brief time.

    There's good content in there, especially if you have kids, but I don't think there's nearly as much as Netflix. I know they're adding new stuff soon, so my hope is that they add A LOT more vids.

    Overall, for $6 a month, it's well worth it.

    I think it's first episode tonight, then it will be releasing on a weekly basis after that.

    I figured they would do this to prevent people like me from just binging for a month and canceling.

    Digging it so far. Watched the first episode of Mandalorian, which was awesome, then watched Tailspin and Gummi Bears with my daughter. It's sweet they have all those old cartoons I watched growing up!

    What’s funny is that kids don’t care about old-school hand drawn cartoons compared to the slick stuff we see today. They’re blind to how crappy the old cartoons look, which is awesome because there’s a lot of good content from the olden days

    Those hand drawn cartoons look ten times better than the computer animated crap of today.

    While I agree. I like that Disney and Pixar throw in some undetected Adult humor into the new stuff. Little kids don't get the joke but adults do. They are pretty good at that. Got mine all hooked up last night. For some reason it took a while for ESPN plus to understand that I had the bundle and it would not work. Finally let me in.

    You're good to go. I signed up for that yesterday.

    I didn't really have much of a buffering issue while watching the Mandalorian before the game or The Black Cauldron after the game.

    Is that why Colbert made the Twitter joke about watching "Buffering"?

    Yeah, it's been pretty slow intermittently. Which, realistically, isn't different than every other major streaming release.
