Also..... why is this stuff on “MacRumors” seems unrelated to anything Apple?
We regularly cover things that Apple's competitors are doing, or popular apps and services that are widely available to Apple users. Disney+ applies in both those cases.

Sign up for an annual plan today locks you in at the current price for 1 year.
I got that plan.

I still don’t get why people fill their pants with urine over 1 dolla.

We used to have no subscription. We used to pay 3 dolla just to rent some low res VHS for one night.

Please be kind rewind.
