Disney Plus suffers some technical difficulties at launch

Associated Press

NEW YORK -- Disney's brand-new streaming service Disney Plus may be a victim of its own success.

The $7-a-month service offering an array of Disney classics and new shows suffered some technical difficulties hours after launching at 3 a.m. Fort Wayne time on Tuesday.

The problems started a little before 7 a.m., according to, a website that tracks outages. It received more than 8,000 reports of difficulties, mostly with video streaming. Others reported problems logging in.

Disney is working to resolve the issue after consumer demand exceeded its expectations, spokeswoman Karen Hobson said. The company did not say what caused the problem.
