Internet Connection:

This all type of live-streaming apps depends on internet connection. So internet connection is the main key point. Maybe your internet connection is not stable or your ISP has some problem handling the request.

Sometimes too much traffic or lots of signups can cause error 83. November 2019 when Disney Plus started their service, due to huge traffic, their server can’t handle their request. As a result of no signup at that time. If the reason is huge traffic and your session cant connect the server to pass a DRM/account check, it might be the possible reason for the above issue.

If you are facing the same issue for a few days, there might be a possible reason that your IP address is blocked by Disney Plus. So asked Disney plus help center to resolve the issue.

If your internet connection is stable and no issue from the IP block, then make sure your device is compatible with Disney+. Linux is not fully compatible with Disney Plus.
