Clear Facts

  • Multiple Tesla owners have reported that Disney+ is no longer available on their vehicle’s streaming platforms.
  • The reports come a week after Tesla CEO Elon Musk criticized Disney CEO Bob Iger over Disney’s advertising choices.
  • Despite the removal, a workaround has been suggested by Whole Mars Catalog, an X account covering technology news, which involves searching for the Disney+ URL in the vehicle’s search bar.

Tesla owners have recently reported that their vehicles no longer support Disney+, the popular streaming platform. These reports started surfacing just over a week after Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk, publicly criticized Disney’s CEO, Bob Iger.

The owners began noticing the absence of Disney+ from their Tesla consoles on Monday. They took to X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, to share images of the missing streaming service. This comes after the launch of Disney+ on Tesla’s consoles in 2021.

“I can confirm that Disney+ has been removed from my Tesla Model S,” wrote Whole Mars Catalog, a technology news account on X. The user also noted an inconsistency, stating, “Strangely, our Hardware 3 Model S on the same firmware still has it.”

Whole Mars Catalog also provided a solution for Tesla owners still wishing to access Disney+ in their vehicles. They suggested that users could simply search for the Disney+ URL in the vehicle’s search bar to continue enjoying the platform’s content.

These reports of Disney+ removal from Tesla vehicles come in the wake of Musk’s criticism of Iger on X. On December 7, Musk criticized Disney’s decision to continue advertising on Facebook and Instagram while boycotting X. Disney, along with several other companies, chose to boycott X due to concerns that their ads would appear alongside far-right messages.

Musk’s critique of Iger and Disney was in response to a civil lawsuit filed by New Mexico’s attorney general against Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg. The lawsuit alleges that Facebook and Instagram, two of Meta’s biggest platforms, have become “prime locations” for sexual predators.

Musk stated that Iger believes “it’s cool to advertise next to child exploitation material” and that he should be “fired immediately.”

Musk also expressed his disappointment with Iger’s leadership of Disney, stating, “Walt Disney is turning in his grave over what Bob has done to his company.”

Other companies that have chosen to halt advertising on X, but continue on Facebook and Instagram, include Apple, Warner Bros. Discovery, Comcast, and IBM.

    Elon beats out Iger by such a longshot, it’s totally AMAZING! Total opposites! Elon has the respect of the decent American Citizens! Iger=Ish! NO DECENT AMERICAN WILL SUPPORT THE ISH OF WHAT HE REPRESENTS AND PUSHES TOWARD CHILDREN! HE sickens all the good decent citizens with what he promotes, and will get his comeuppance when he takes his dirt nap! I’m amazed how these types choose to identify with the EVIL side and doom themselves when they take their dirt nap! Weak minds are easily taken over by the Evil one! Don’t believe me, well all I can say is wait and see for yourself! Take the chance if you’re bent that way!
