With the launch of Disney+ mere hours away, and Disney telling everyone that they will be able to stream it to nearly any device you can imagine, people are starting to wonder where the apps are.
The Disney+ streaming platform is integral to Phase Four (commencing May 2020 with "The Black Widow" release) as Marvel plans to expand the MCU with the rollout of 10-movies and exclusive TV shows inside a two-and-a-half-year period. Most recently, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced the Disney+ app will be available, with a subscription, through Amazon.com, Inc.'s (NASDAQ: AMZN) Fire TV streaming devices, Fire Tablets, and Fire TV smart TVs.
Disney has said that it is losing about $150 million in licensing revenue in the most recent fiscal year from terminating deals with Netflix and other services.
Disney, of course, is far from the only company jumping into the streaming wars.
The streaming service launched in Canada, the USA, and The Netherlands today, with Australia and New Zealand's launch coming on November 19, and even more countries to come in early 2020. This means that Disney+'s early subscriber numbers make up just 3% of Netflix's US subscribers - keep in mind, though, that Netflix has been around for years.
The spotlight may be on Disney+, but Disney has not forgotten about Hulu, which will become the streaming home for the FX Networks in March, as well as much of its more adult-oriented content.

If anything about Disney+ emerges as grist for critical treatment, it may be in the service's design and ease of use (i.e., user-friendliness).
Each installment of What If.? will be introduced by The Watcher, a Rod Serling-type character played by Jeffrey Wright, who acts as the viewer's guide to all of the alternate timelines and realities explored in the show. The items I was most interested in were the Disney+ Originals.
