Yeah I made a big mistake there. I canceled Sling before you were ninja'd on this. Trying to decide what to do going fwd. It's really annoying that TV still isn't a la carte.

I screwed up too. I canceled my Disney Plus because of the Verizon thing, then I saw that they just pause your Disney one until the free Verizon year is over. But I can't resubscribe to Disney Plus until the 7 day free trial expires. Actually added it to my calendar to remember to go in and do that.

I took advantage of this and got the free one year of Disney+.

I've been reading online. You have to have one of the current unlimited plans. If you have a grandfathered unlimited plan, you don't qualify for the free Disney+.

Since you, GF, got the email from Verizon, you must be on a current unlimited plan. But I'm throwing this out there in case it might benefit others.

I've been very pleased how many of the movies are available in HDR10 and Dolby Atmos on Disney+. These same movies on Apple TV and iTunes are not available in either. So they definitely look and sound better through Disney+. I watched the original Incredibles movie the other night, and it was glorious. Better than blu-ray on my 4K HDR TV and Atmos sound system.

I’m not on unlimited, I think they are trying to entice me! And honestly, we’ve been struggling to stay under our data cap, so they may succeed in up-selling me.

It also seems you get one year of Disney+ free, after that you’re on your own.

Yep, one year free, and then they start charging you the regular monthly subscription.

I think we pay about $150/month and get about everything. We also have Netflix, too, so add another $10 or so.

Disney+ - 6
Total 90.97

Since Disney includes ESPN, I think I'm getting rid of Sling. I'm basically paying $45 for All In with Chris Hayes at this point. I might miss some MLB playoff games on FSN but I can deal with that. I think I'm going to cancel HBO too. I only watch John Oliver anymore.

I have Prime for "free" shipping, I rarely watch anything on there.
I just canceled my DTV Now. After typing all of mine out I just couldn’t justify it. Wasn’t even really using it anyway.
