Embarassed Whoops. Well, the point still stands.

And, to be fair, Season 19 wasn't out for most of the lifespan of Simpsons World (in fact I don't think it came out until a few weeks after Disney+ launched), so those commentaries were exclusive to there for a while.

There was a Season 20 DVD release in the US and a handful of other countries (not the UK), though it was a bare bones one, with no commentaries. And released completely out of order, before season 14 came out.

Looks like the bandwidth limitations have been removed as Atmos appears to be working, ahead of Frozen II and Hamilton being added.

The X-Men films are being added in the coming weeks. Though given how violent some of them are, not to mention the swearing and F words, I think they'll be heavily censored.

They’re already there are they not? Or at least the Patrick Stewart/Ian McKellan ones are, not all of the James McEvoy/Michael Fassbender ones are.

Huh? I thought only the so-called Marvel Cinematic Universe (Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and others) films are part of the Disney+ line-up?

There are hundreds of other films on it that have no connection to the MCU.

Or do you mean Marvel Comics derived material specifically? There’s a few - as well as the X Men stuff, there’s one of the 2000s Fantastic 4 movies and a load of animated series.

I'm guessing you're thinking of the US, where the rights have been tied up on other streaming services and they're getting four of them over the next few months. In the UK six of them have been on there since launch.

The removal of the restrictions seems confirmed as UHD content is back on the BBC iPlayer again now.

Its quite interesting to observe what different countries/languages call the classic characters. The short "classic" cartoons (the seven minute ones), a lot of them have extra credits on Disney+ for the alternative voices used for other languages. Can't remember what language it was but one of the Donald Duck cartoons that also featured Chip & Dale rebranded the chipmunks as something like Clip & Clop?

Course a lot of the time these extra credits are not easily seen, as the app (on the Firestick anyway) does a credit squeeze before that point for a lot of the material, but of course nothing to stop you using the web interface if you're that fussed.

You can get the video to full screen after the credit squeeze anyway, just highlight the video and select it and it will zoom back to full screen.

I would appreciate an option to not have the credit squeeze at all though, personally.
