I threw caution to the wind and signed up. I'll pay the $6.99/month not to be locked into a 3 year contract. But I'm goofy like that.

Am I missing something or is pre-ordering not as cost affective as the Disney+ Hulu ESPN+ bundle?

Pre-ordering Disney+ ($6.99/mo. regular price) discounted $40 for 3 years = $4.72/mo. (saving $3.37/mo. if you include the $40).
All 3 services alone costs $17.97/mo. Bundle of all 3 will be $12.99/mo. (saving $4.98/mo.)
Prices exclude taxes.

Currently I already have Hulu, so to spend the extra $2 to have ESPN+ seems like a good idea.
For someone that can front the money and doesn't want or need Hulu or ESPN+, sure the 3 year pre-order can work out for them.
Someone previously mentioned that the bundle will have a lower limit of concurrent streams than buying the separate packages. If you don't care about ESPN, you aren't getting a better deal.

When will the apps be released? Will we get a chance to download before the 12th or are we all going to be competing for the streaming device manufacturer's library as well as the studio's content library?

Will be nice if they make the app available before the 12th. Or it's gonna be a blood mouse bath.

Here's a list of the audio and video quality of shows in the Netherlands. This won't be exact for us when it launches on the 12th here. But it gives an idea of what will be in 4K/Atmos.

I'm glad that the versions of Star Wars episodes I-VI on Disney+ have the 20th Century Fox openings, presumably the openings from the 2011 Blu-rays. I haven't bought any of the Star Wars Blu-rays so I'm not certain if the openings here are exactly the same, but the openings from episodes IV-VI are not the openings from the original 1977, 1980, and 1983 versions. The versions of IV-VI on Disney+ are not the original versions. I presume that they're the versions from the 2011 Blu-rays. I haven't bought any of the Blu-rays, so again, I could be wrong.

Disney Plus Dolby Atmos?

Is anyone else having an issue with the sound on Disney Plus?

Everything is just playing in 2 channel stereo for me. I can't find anywhere in the settings to adjust. Netflix and Amazon automatically play in Atmos or 5.1, whichever is available for the program.

I streamed UHD HDR Dr Strange this afternoon and it played in 5.1. That was via the Disney+ app on a Roku Ultra connected via HDMI.
