Mine just says to download the app from the App Store, which is currently unavailable.

It does this on my iPhone, but iPad (and I imagine desktop devices) seem to be working.

Just picked something at random in the browser and its is very minimalistic playback wise, similar to Amazon:

Very Amazon/Netflix similar in style in terms of how things are presented:

Bottom half of this page for this film, lots of detailed information:

Not working on mine, as I said I can't even sign in because it throws me out of the login screen before I have chance to (tried on Firefox, Chrome and Edge, does it on all three). The Roku app isn't available, so I can't use that either.

Not sure if its an option on other streaming provider but on the desktop browser you can switch between audio streams seamlessly without having to interrupt the film, similar to DVD.

Video quality personally I'm not the best person to ask. Seems decent. Not entirely sure if I'm watching in HD or what, no labels to signify anything.

Peeved .... I cannot access either.

I want to know how you got into it when me and DVB Cornwall can't!

I can access the FAQs and this is the key COVID 19 statement on the UK site

Why am I getting low-quality video instead of 4K Ultra HD?

NOTE: In light of the concerns expressed by government officials regarding the use of broadband services in this challenging time, we have instituted measures to lower bandwidth utilization, and in some circumstances streaming content in HD and UHD formats will be limited or unavailable. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

This isn't how I did it, but I've managed to get you in:

Go to https://www.disneyplus.com/eu/login and stop the page refreshing. Most browsers put the stop/refresh in the same place on the toolbar, so be careful to click stop before the page starts to refresh, otherwise you'll go back to the preview site.

On the screen that's left behind should be an email box. Pop your email in there, and your password on the next screen. Browser should go to https://www.disneyplus.com/en-gb/ and you should have a Mickey Mouse icon top right. You're in.

You're welcome.

But is it in 4:3, or the cropped 16:9 version they have in the US?

Same for The Simpsons.
