I think I'm going to wind up having to take advantage of this discount, because if I don't I'm probably going to pay more over the next few years when I inevitably do cave.

Is anyone else doing this?

It’s not just for my kid, even though he’ll surely watch it a ton as he gets older. If you’re interested in anything at all that’s Marvel or Star Wars, it’s going to be very hard to get elsewhere. Plus the other original programming that they’re working on.

I assume most people on here have Netflix. Unless you are a 14 year old girl, you'd be crazy not to drop Netflix for the Disney+/Hulu/ESPN deal (both are $12.99). Assuming you don't want both.

As far as I can tell, Netflix is down to Ozark, Stranger Things, BoJack Horseman, and Black Mirror (which runs about 3 episodes every 18 months) as far as decent original series go. Everything else has either run its course or has been pulled because of Disney. Unless they announce about half a dozen killer shows for 2020, I imagine they’re going to lose half their subscriber base. It’s not like you can watch movies on Netflix either. You need the DVD plan to see any new releases. Streaming offers nothing.

I use a VPN to be able to watch Netflix from any country, and that makes it just about worthwhile. I have an app on my phone that shows you what is being added and removed every day. To keep their numbers up, they are adding a LOT of Korean and Indian movies and TV shows, along with third-rate documentaries (some are just 20 mins of drone footage without commentary called "INSERT PLACE NAME From Above"). A lot of movies are only on Netflix for 2 months before they are removed again, some only last six weeks. I'd happily pay $30, maybe up to $50 for "Spotify for TV and movies." One service that has 90% of everything that has ever existed. By spreading everything around an ever increasing number of providers, they are just encouraging piracy. For me, the Disney+/Hulu deal is the closest we will get. That covers Disney/Pixar/Marvel/LucasFilm/ABC and now everything from Fox. Fox wanted people to pay for a streaming service that only had The Simpsons, now The Simpsons is part of Disney+.

What app do you use?

I am looking forward to Disney +, and I am hoping beyond hope that they unlock the vault. I don't expect that they'll play Song of the South, but I do think that a lot of vintage programming can be shown that we have had no access to in years. They've played like a half dozen "Disneyland" tv shows over the past 20 years, but that was a weekly broadcast. Mickey Mouse Club hasn't been shown since the earliest days of the Disney Channel. And all of the shorts they have - they made a ton of DVD box sets in the early '00s with these called the Walt Disney Treasures. Would be nice if they showed these, even as one short at a time.

I haven't even mentioned Marvel, Lucas, other Disney properties, and the Fox vaults. Disney + has the chance at being the best service from the minute it launches. And unlike WWE Network, they've really spent the better part of the past 18 months getting ready. WWE put their network out basically with no testing if you all remember and we were getting really pissed with how bad it was streaming.

So everything that Disney has access to or the rights to will be available on day one. That is supposed to include everything in the Vault, the first 3 Star Wars movies, all the Marvel movies that aren't currently locked into Netflix, the entire Simpsons catalog, all the Pixar movies and shorts, etc. And everything will be available for downloading and playing back at your own convenience, no limitations except the storage of your device.

I'm curious if they'll open up the "Marvel Vault", with all their old TV shows. Similar to what DC has done on "DC Universe", only with Marvel. The 60's "Marvel Super Heroes", 70's TV movies, the 1980 (solo) "Spider-Man", etc. Marvel even had "Japanese Spider-Man" on their website, circa 2004, so who knows how deep it could go.

I've heard about Loki and Wanda/Vision, but I'm hoping that other junk will pop up.

Does Disney own "Spider Man '66"?  Because that was released on DVD about 15 years ago and should be all set to go up on any streaming service.

Anything that was owned by Marvel or Fox can now go on Disney+. Something like the 70s Incredible Hulk TV series, made by CBS, won't be available.

As for the new series, they've announced:

2020: The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
2021: WandaVision, Loki, Hawkeye and an animated What If...? series
TBA: Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, She-Hulk

I'm really looking forward to all this.

I believe all of Marvel's old cartoons (1980's and earlier) are owned by them. They used to sell videos of 2 or 3 episodes of "Marvel Super Heroes" and even "Spider-Woman" in the early 90's.

"Marvel Super Heroes" always sounds cool and a Marvel Zombie's dream. Cap! Thor! Iron Man! Hulk! Namor! But then you watch one or two episodes and you're shot. They're basically someone reading a comic to you, with low-level "animation" borrowed directly from the comics. Still...would be a Fun to Have.

I think Spider-Man '66 (IN COLOR) was on Netflix, circa 2011. I definitely used Netflix to watch the 1980 "Spider-Man" and "Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends", back then. Netflix stopped showing them all around 2013.

Curious about the 80's Marvel/Sunbow projects (GI Joe, Transformers, Bigfoot & the Muscle Machines, Robotix, Jem, Robocop, etc.). With FOX ownership, the 90's-2000's Spidey and X-men shows can go up. Even the weird 1998 Silver Surfer series and 1999's "Avengers: United We Stand".

It's all worthless speculation on my part, until I find a list of "Marvel Stuff that will be on Disney +".

On the Disney side, I'd be happy with the original DuckTales. And original Mickey Mouse Club, just so I can give my wife some context on the "Annette's getting pretty big" line from "Stand By Me".

Found a few sites that reported the following Marvel animated shows will be on Disney+:

-1979 Spider-Woman
-1980/81 Spider-Man (solo)
-1982-1984 Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends
-1994-1995 Iron Man
-1994-1995 Fantastic Four
-1992-1997 X-men (FOX)
-1998 Silver Surfer
-1999 Spider-Man Unlimited (I think this is the one where he goes to "Counter-Earth" and it's like the Sweet Pickles Bus)

That's a good chunk to get them started.

I'm guessing the licensed stuff from the 80's (GI Joe, Transformers, etc) is owned by Hasbro and what not. Makes sense that it would not pop-up.

I wouldn't be surprised if the 1987 "Pryde of the X-men" one day shows up as their version of a "Hidden Gem".
