When I was finished watching an episode of the Mandalorian and my kids wanted to watch the same episode the next day, the show would always start where I finished, which was the end credits. There was no option to restart the episode from the beginning. But I think this was fixed with an update.
Netflix is still king of the streaming apps in my opinion. Disney as some work to do to catch up.

|hercules130||So I watched Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 on the weekend. I was quite surprised that the service did not remember when I stopped watching. So if I jumped out the movie, when I came back the movie would start from the beginning. It was a very frustrated experience.|

Apple TV will access content to all streaming apps. There is no need to login to each app individually. Some people may like but I find it confusing and prefer to login to service that I want to watch.
As for Disney + they still have some issues and buffering is one main problem for me. I am pretty sure that it will be solved soon if it hasn’t already

|ExDilbert||There is no technological reason why authentication and playback control cannot be linked between devices and apps for any streaming service. There are various methods available. The use of 2D bar codes, casting or two factor authorization-like technology would be possibilities. It looks like Disney+ is on the right track. Some of the others are stuck in the technology stone age.|

|pinto||Dropped Stack TV thru Prime and picked up Disney+ instead. So I have all 3 majors for streaming, Netflix, Prime and Disney. Now because of the dumb TV I use Nvidia Shields. That said, if you completely log out of Netflix, you have to go thru the entire process of email/password. With Disney +, if you log completely out, use the smart phone app, enter a code and poof... you're in. Saved me using the damn on screen keyboard more than once.|

The problem with Crave is that they have too much security and cross checking. The other thing that makes it user unfriendly is the process of logging in through third parties such as cable companies. I suspect that the odious level of security is required by content providers and is made worse by a lack of in house expertise and internal politics. Bell seems to put profits and expansion ahead of customer satisfaction at every turn. Crave is a small player in the streaming market and has little leverage to obtain better terms from content owners and fewer resources to improve their software. The user interface isn't bad once logged in but is hampered by apparent timeouts and bugs that make playback fail unexpectedly.
Disney+ has a lot more resources and is not hampered by third party content owners placing restrictions on how their content can be streamed. That makes their task easier. It doesn't explain how Netflix is able to provide such a superior experience compared to Crave though. Don't know how Netflix and Disney+ compare (since I haven't tried Disney+) but I suspect they are similar.

Interesting fact about google home mini and Disney+:
Me: "hey google, play ... on Disney+"
GHM: "I can't play from Disney+ yet"
Normally the response from an unsupported device or app would be : "I'm sorry I dono how to help with that."

Need someone in the US to compare there.
As the english version, generally is the same english version as the US.
I wonder if its some thing.. since in Canada would require to have the french audio language available (I guess when/where it was recorded, some older stuff might not?).. that they were like oh should be the french visual version?

Yeah, thats really weird. As I think that the canadian version of those movies, even with french audio, use the english video (there isnt two different coppies of the video on the bluray, etc)
So its like its using an EU french release? (zootopia the news anchor is the same animal even in France so couldnt fully differentiate by that)
|2019-11-19 03:09 PM|
Yes, It had the English audio but was clearly a French version of the video.
Gotta wonder if its an early soon-to-be resolved glitch in the Canadian version of Disney+ eh?
It occurs to me that Zootopia was like that as well.
