This is the new streaming service that just came out. Judging from what they offer, I'm half tempted to drop Netflix and go there. If I did though, I would lose out on Frasier, Cheers and The Blacklist. Tough call.
I know we have some sci-fi fans here, so did anyone else watch season one of The Mandalorian? Baby Yoda is all the rage. I'm on edge waiting for season two. They left so many questions unanswered - of course.

We liked Mandalorian also...
I was impressed by the picture quality as well.
Most of the Disney + content says its 4k HDR, but lots of times streaming this resolution and contrast ratio is not all its cracked up to be (compared to Ultra HD hard-copy disk).
Has streaming content improved??
I recall comparing Blu-Ray to streaming (1080p) years ago, and the differences seemed more stark...
I like the video quality too, but hate the bandwidth drain from Disney. They need to spend some time working on compression algorithms, I think.
I hate when Netflix and Amazon video feeds shift to low-res mode, but at least their services are capable of doing that. I think Disney needs to implement that too, because without it, the service is too "selfish" of bandwidth. It doesn't play nice on the home network.
I don't have Disney+. I figured I'd wait until they worked out the kinks before subscribing to the service. If it's possible to download those episodes instead of streaming them it should work better. Of course, you probably already knew that.
