How To Cancel Disney+: Can You Do It From Your Phone?

Although Disney came to the streaming game late, Disney+ has emerged as a viable streaming service. A Disney+ free trial gives you a glimpse into the successful content from the Marvel and Star Wars universes which made the platform popular. The Disney+ bundle offer packages ESPN+ and Hulu for one lower rate to subscribers. The bundle has made Disney+ even more attractive for some people who may not have otherwise subscribed. As the number of streaming services continues to increase, though, many consumers are going to have to make some tough choices about which ones are worth it and which ones aren’t.

If, after careful evaluation, you decide that Disney+ isn’t a streamer that you absolutely need, you can cancel your subscription. Actually canceling your subscription can be tricky, and it depends in part on how you initially signed up for the service. If you signed up through a browser, canceling is fairly straightforward. If you used the mobile app to sign up, though, things can get a little more complicated. The good news is that, even after you end your subscription, you’ll still be able to use Disney+ until the end of your next billing cycle.

If you change your mind and want to re-subscribe, you can always sign up again through Disney+. In an era filled with too many options, picking and choosing the services you want when you want them is becoming more crucial than ever. Some users choose to sign up for a service like Disney+ only when certain shows, like The Mandalorian or the Marvel series, are airing, and then unsubscribe until there’s something else they want to watch. For many, the constant unsubscribing and re-subscribing can be a challenge, but it’s the best way to maximize the value you get out of each service.

There's something about World War II that keeps bringing Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks back together for event miniseries like Masters of the Air. Nearly eight decades after the conflict came to an end, WWII remains an endless source of material for Hollywood, although there are a lot fewer stories that explore the horrific toll of the war in the way that Spielberg and Hanks' 1998 film, Saving Private Ryan, did. Masters of the Air and other shows like it serve as a reminder that real people fought in this conflict, and they're the ones who paid the price.

Now that Masters of the Air has finished its nine-episode run, we're putting the spotlight on the best shows like it that you can stream right now. Not all of our choices cover World War II, but there are certain aspects of war that remain true in every armed conflict. And those stories can be just as compelling as Masters of the Air.

How do cigars make you feel? My experience as a cigar smoker
Man smoking a cigar in a newsboy cap outside.

Most enthusiasts and cigar lovers smoke for more than just the appearance. In other words, it's not about looking cool or suave but about the experience itself. Smoking a good cigar is flavorful, pleasurable, and relaxing, and, on occasion, may even make you feel light-headed or give you a slight buzz -- although it's nothing like drinking or imbibing other common substances. For someone who's never smoked before or is interested in getting into the hobby, wondering just how cigars make you feel is a valid concern. What can you expect, and what is it about cigars that change the experience for better or worse?
How does a cigar make you feel?

For the most part, a cigar experience is pleasurable and relaxing, but nothing more. You don't smoke to feel something, so it's not like drinking alcohol or taking other substances in the sense that you're doing it to chase a particular feeling. If you like drinking for the taste or the flavors, that's the best comparison to smoking a cigar. A good cigar will be aromatic but also leaves a lot of nuanced flavor on your tongue and, if you retro-hale, in your nostrils. You'll get hints of chocolate, coffee, leather, spice, and maybe even some sweet tones like fruit. It depends on the cigar and the blend.
