    You realize that you are getting old when you don't have to ask what MMC stands for. :(:P

    They have the 1st 5 episodes of Season one of Mickey Mouse Club so far. Hopefully there will be more.
    They have the complete 1st season of Spin and Marty
    They have 3 or 4 episodes of the wonderful world of Disney but not under that title they under the title of the episode.
    They have one of the two Zorro movies that was a compilation of episodes but not the actual series.
    So a little slim for classic TV right now but the fact that there is some hopefully means there will be more.
    I would love to see seasons of WWoD, MMC, the rest of Spin and Marty, Moochie of the Little League, The Hardy Boys and the two seasons of Zorro.

    I noticed the issue with the smart remote after you mentioned it. Switching over to using navigation keys was pretty well an unconscious move so I never really took much notice of the deficiency.So far, I haven't noticed any blockiness with the stuff I have watched. The biggest problem with the app is that it downconverts all Dolby audio to DD, not even DD TrueHD or DD+ but old school DD.

    I've found "The Plausible Impossible" and "Disneyland Around the Seasons." What are the other(s) you're referring to?

    that’s good news. However I remember FX Simpsons world gave the option of original 4:3 but I think eventually yanked them (at least when I watched a few episodes recently on FX NOW via Firestick, there was no obvious way to opt for 4:3). My guess is that 98% of viewers didn’t care and were fine with cropped 16:9.

    I apologize if this question has already been answered but at least through page 56 of this thread does not appear to answer it.

    what happens if I am watching a particular show and someone else on my family starts watching it on another device? Or if I quit in the middle of something and someone else starts it?

    I like the ability for the app to remember where I’m at. On the other hand if my daughter starts watching something, I don’t want to be moved to her position

    If you have set up separate profiles for you and your daughter, you will each get progression saved separately.

    Yeh it’s just like on Hulu you can have separate profiles for one’s own viewing.

    Really. That’s good and I stand corrected then. I saw the new series on there but didn’t find the original (granted I didn’t look super hard, but didn’t find a thumbnail for it).And good that it’s complete as the series was never completed on DVD.

    My guess is that when they made the Treasures DVD sets, that they created new HD masters of that material at that time and that’s what we’re seeing on the service.

    I was planning on revisiting Spin & Marty soon anyway, so I’m going to make a point of watching it on D+ instead of DVD to hopefully show them that there are interested viewers.

    I have an LG smart television and I am noticing the same exact issue: the smart remote point and click functionality does not work with Disney+ and you have to use the arrow keys to navigate.

    This is what Mr. Browne meant by "regret[ting] lost opportunities later." My other worst fear about this service has been realized.

    The original series was completed on DVD last year. Volume 4 was released in September 2018.

    I am not moaning about it, unkike some people. I just found it odd, given their official statement.

    We have a few vocal critics of Disney that will espouse their eternal criticism of them.

    I would think DIsney+ would be the perfect place to put up the long version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks to offer folks the choice of the shorter or longer versions. I'm glad I still have my DVD. Is it because it might not be mastered in HD that they didn't offer the longer cut on the service?

    The 139 minute version is mastered in HD, but just no digital cleanup. It is still available on iTunes to those who purchased it before the Blu-ray version came out.

    Why did they cut it in the first place as 22 minutes is quite a bit to delete?
