Now Disney's streaming service, Disney +, works on Linux.
For those who were stuck in some parallel reality or disappeared by the snap of Thanos, Disney now has a streaming service called Disney + (how much creativity is there?), Which comes to compete with other services in the sector, such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu , among others. But this service had an obstacle, it did not run on Linux.
The service is scheduled to debut in Brazil in mid-November 2020, but without a set price. In the USA it costs US $ 6.99 / ms, something around R $ 29 / ms. In addition to the USA, it is available in Canada and the Netherlands, and for other places on the planet the service will be available throughout 2020.
Who made the report that Disney + was not working on Linux, was the people of OMG! Ubuntu !, saying that no distro worked and that it needed alternative solutions to access it.
According to them, this initial limitation was because of the DRM used in the service, Widevine, requires a higher level of security than is accepted in Linux (level 1). Another service that may face limitations of this type is Netflix, which does not offer FullHD and 4k resolutions, but the rest of the service works perfectly.
The news that support was available for Linux was given by a Disney + engineer, Justin Garrison. The tweet you see below:

Go forth and stream!

This is very good, as it shows that the company is concerned with not letting any customer out of its platform and thus having a very wide coverage of who can see its content. Point to Disney.
