Disney's streaming service Disney+ launched in the US today, however, its big debut was blighted by errors according to users.
The company have responded to the problems explaining they were down to an unexpected demand for the service.
“The consumer demand for Disney+ has exceeded our high expectations," Disney said in a statement to CNN.
"We are pleased by this incredible response and are working to quickly resolve the current user issue. We appreciate your patience.”
Subscribers, who pay $7 per month or $70 for the whole year, shared their disappointment to Twitter as they claimed they'd been receiving error messages when trying to gain access.
One wrote: "Hope I'm getting credit for this, you should been ready for the masses.. everything is unwatchable right now,I understand it's a big new service with lots of people streaming, but you should of known.. at least say you aware of the problem and fixing it."

Welp I can't even watch it with my first time ever turning it on after preordering. This is some bs. Disney is one if the biggest companies in the world and you couldn't have enough to servers to handle all this traffic? pic.twitter.com/pkXeck0R70— Tasha Null (@nullandvoidart) November 12, 2019
However, it appeared as though not everybody was receiving error messages as others delighted in the amount of content available to them.
Although, some didn’t know where to start.
