What if we told you Disney Plus was developing an awesome new homescreen feature?
Let’s look at how the new episodes added to Disney+ today are not properly promoted.
Today, news broke courtesy Streamr that Disney is running a survey investigating the low viewership in their criminally underrated, most superior original series – Big Shot (2021). Big Shot’s finale aired today but you probably wouldn’t know that. One of the questions the survey asks is whether people would have watched more episodes if it had been available in a binge format. This is where I step in once more and reiterate what I’ve been shouting at the moon since earlier this year.
People don’t watch Disney+ series because Disney+ is not seen as a destination for TV.
Netflix provides one of the most interesting features available on the market. Have you ever struggled to decide what to watch on TV? Netflix created a feature that picks a random title for you to watch. The tool is called the Play Something button.
One of the best things about Netflix compared to other services is their detailed Activity History. I scooped many months ago via Twitter that the phrase “Viewing Activity History” is present in Disney+ menu code, but it either pertains to something different or remains under construction as no such feature has launched.
There is a major feature that every single streaming service has… except Disney+. That feature is the option to remove a title from the Continue Watching row.
When HBO Max launched, one of the most praised features to the new service was a tab called “Coming Soon.” This page reveals upcoming original and library titles coming in the current month as well as highlights from further out. This area gets users excited about content arriving as well as keeps it on their mind.
