How is this any different from cable days when some first run movies went to HBO, while others went to Showtime or Starz?

Subscription streaming is the successor to premium cable subscriptions, not to physical media ownership or video store rentals/purchases.
Agreed except I think Video store rentals but not purchases went to streaming as well. Where did all the disc renters from blockbuster and other stores go? They are not purchasing discs as most renters never did they went to streaming.

Disney+ just added the uncut version (170 minutes ) of THE HAPPIEST MILLIONAIRE. The only part missing is the exit music. which would bring it to 172 minutes.

Oklahoma (Todd-AO version) also apparently got added to the service at some point, which I was not aware of until today when I sampled the D+ print of Happiest Millionaire to see if it was the roadshow version or not.

If you use the Ibotta shopping app, they are currently offering a 50% cash back on a Disney+ subscription. This includes an annual, monthly, or bundle deal. Subscription must be made from the Ibotta app on a smart device or the Ibotta browser extension.

Ibotta has sweetened their deal for today only - receive a 75% rebate (up to $17.50) when signing up for Disney+ via the Ibotta app or web browser extension.

Anybody else not getting Atmos today using Airplay or any other Apple devices or technology? This happened a few months ago and was fixed so I hope this is just a repeat. One of their tech support people said they had an "update" that disabled Atmos from what I was using, I certainly hope they were wrong about that.

I haven't had that problem, but if it makes you feel better they took away Atmos from the Android app on my TV. This should probably go in the "Streaming Frustrations" thread, but it seems providers are frequently disabling Atmos, presumably by accident.

This app is such an oddball.

watched What If…? this morning and noticed that even though it plays as DV and Atmos sound the app displays some of these shows/movies as HDR10 and 5.1

Is anyone getting Zenimation to play in Atmos? The app shows it is not available in Atmos (only stereo and 5.1), but the end credits display the Atmos logo.

Also I think that Simpsons Loki short was suppose to be 4K Atmos but it isn’t.

It just premiered today, so it's possible that not all of the tags were loaded yet. DV and Atmos are listed under the Details tab.

This is for every 4K title I looked at.
I’m out now so I can’t take another look till later.

Apple TV flags are screwed up on Disney+. I saw the app updated recently and I hoped it was fixed, but it wasn't.
