the bloody thing doesn't work in the Channel Islands. Great start to my first week of indefinite working from home and social distancing.

The app on LG Smart TVs is very slow that I had to bust out the stop watch. You can navigate to things pretty easily, but if I wanted watch a particular episode of The Simpson’s for example, let’s say ‘Last Exit To Springfield’ which is Series 4 Episode 17, the lag from getting to that episode from entering The Simpson’s section has taken nearly 3 minutes, with lag of up to 12 seconds per button press, compared to the 10 seconds it took to do the same on the PS4 app.

The episode plays fine, unlike the first episode of X-Men which was very choppy to start but settled down once the intro had finished, so it could just be first days bugs and such. It’s only really going to be an issue if I want to watch something in 4K, which the TV app supports but my PS4 doesn’t (not got a PS4 Pro)

X-Men can wait until I've binged Spider-man and his Amazing Friends.

I can't watch that until I've got the place to myself again due to the groin twitches that Firestar gives me.

seems to work fine on the Samsung app, no lag at all. Quick question, how many people can view it at one time per an account

Might be your TV or internet connection, we've got a LG as well and it's been fine for us.

Probably is the TV, I think it’s one of the older models because when they did the WWE Network overhaul, the TV app went to pot.

Like I say, the Disney+ app does work and does play things fine so I don’t think it’s a connection issue, it’s just getting to certain things

I'd rather have Jungle Fever.  (The Spike Lee kind, not an actual illness)

What a theme tune.

Half heartedly had a look for the app on my TV, but alas the model seems too old.

How will Disney cope without my fiver?

Tried on Sky Q and it works fine.

Oh, is the app on Sky Q? That's surprisingly efficient from Sky, we waited ages for them to add Netflix and Youtube apps. Makes things a lot easier than having to watch Disney+ via the Xbox.

Yeah, being available through Sky was part of the deal for Disney+ having The Simpsons available to stream

Yeah it was there on mine this morning but noticed Sky Q trending on twitter this morning as it wasn't on everyone's so you may need to update the software if not.

Subscribed this morning watching it via Sky Q watched couple epsiodes of Simpsons earlier before starting the home teaching of my daughter and setting her up and getting her doing school work

The only minor annoying thing is I thought it would be like Netflix where it appears on the on Demand section rather then having to scroll down to apps and then scroll down to the bottom of that list to find it
