Just saw a commercial advertising DisneyReplay on the Watch Disney app. The shows they advertised were Cory in the House, That's So Raven, Even Stevens, Kim Possible, and Lilo and Stitch-- the same shows they've been playing on the televised block. But maybe there's a better shot of getting So Weird released on the app than on tv and I'd settle for that if it meant getting to see Strangeling or Fountain in decent quality (and in English).
I heard about that! That'd be cool if they put So Weird on there. Is the Watch Disney app available to everyone, or do you have to prove you get the Disney Channel on cable? I tried to watch the Girl Meets World pilot early through their website, but I wasn't able to. My cable company is very small, and it wasn't listed on the site.
I think you're cable provider has to have some deal with Disney to get it, but it doesn't always work. My cable provider is supposed to allow access but whenever I log in, I get stuck in a constant loop of the log-in screen -__- My friend who lives two houses away with the same cable provider never has that issue though so I don't know what the problem is.
So I used the feedback form on the WatchDisney page to request that they add So Weird to the Disney Replay section, adding that the upcoming Halloween season and this year being the shows 15 year anniversary would be perfect marketing strategies for adding it. I expected a similar automated email to the ones I received about requesting So Weird on DVD. And last night, I did get what looked like an automated email saying that "Your request has been received and is being reviewed by our support staff."
Today I received an email from A PERSON, AN ACTUAL PERSON HIS NAME IS JOHN that said: Hi Disney viewer,
Welcome to the MAGICAL world of WATCH Disney! I understand you would like us to add episodes of So Weird on Disney Replay.
We at WATCH Disney strive to provide the very best website available to our viewers and your valued feedback is a much needed tool in doing so.
Please reach out to us again in the future should you have any additional feedback.
Thanks for reaching out to us. Have a MAGICAL day!

I'm not sure if this means they'll actually add it or not, but at least John knows we want to see So Weird and I'll take reaching an actual human being as a small victory. Here's to John! (raises glass)
As long as they're reading them, it's a step up from the failed requests to get the show on DVD. I was just asked to rate the support I received and left a comment saying that I was thankful to have a response from an actual human being, but it would have been nicer to receive a clear response (yes, we'll do it or sorry, it's unlikely) instead of a generic "we understand your request."
Was your response from John too? I kind of wish I had a Twitter so we could try to do a hashtag thing like #don'tletusdownjohn after a tweet about the possibility of getting so weird on disney replay. Maybe if it went viral Disney would be more inclined to actually do it.
But still, as long as somebody's reading the requests for So Weird, we could be on the right track here!
Urgghhh JOHN FROM THE WATCH DISNEY CARE TEAM I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED IN YOU.
Such a wasted opportunity not to air So Weird during Halloween season.
It might have been a mistake on our part to get people to ask for it around the same time, though. Maybe they thought it was just a crazy person spamming them from multiple e-mail addresses. That might be why didn't email krazy back
