Some users reported getting an error message page when trying to sign in, leading some to vent their frustrations via Twitter.
Disney didn't immediately respond to a request from TheStreet for comment on the situation, but did say this in a tweet:
Disney is aiming for between 60 and 90 million global subscribers by 2024 on Diney+ and distribution deals will play a key role in that goal. Last week, Disney announced it struck a distribution deal with Amazon that will place the Disney+ app on Amazon Fire TVs. Roku (ROKU) - Get Report , Samsung (SSNLF) , Alphabet's (GOOGL) - Get Report Chromecast and Google TV, Apple (AAPL) - Get Report TV, Sony's (SNE) - Get Report Playstation and Microsoft's (MSFT) - Get Report Xbox will also carry Disney+.
According to Dan Rayburn, a principal analyst at Frost & Sullivan, subscription revenue share agreements are less common in streaming nowadays, unless there is a specific promotional aspect determined to be highly valuable, such as the Netflix (NFLX) - Get Report button found on Roku remotes, or specific prominent placement of an app within a platform's interface.
"There are few deals left in the industry where someone is taking a percentage [of subscription revenues], and you'll start hearing Disney disclose more on that in the coming quarters," Rayburn said.
Disney shares were rising 1.5% to $138.79.
