015: Disney+ First Reaction and Quarterly Earnings

Disney+ has now launched and while it wasn’t without its own hiccups, we give some first reactions to the service. On top of that, a new study claims to have huge subscriber counts for some of the services while the companies behind the services are teaming up to combat password sharing. The bulk of the episode is a look at the quarterly earnings for the parent companies behind the streaming services. All of this and more is covered this time around as Tony and Dustin discuss the latest happenings within the Streaming Wars.
