The Server timeout Thing

The error 83, better known as server timeout is bothering the users a lot and dealing with this error is quite a bit typical, but below, we have a proper workaround to deal with it. Here is how:

  • Try Again: The site servers can face frequent issues and it can stay for a long time. However, you still need to retry again or refresh the browser to fix the issue. Try to reboot your device; the method can also fix Error 83 as the Restart will also restart the network of your device.
  • Widespread Issue: In case it is the website itself facing issues, then there is nothing you can do about it. Check the site’s status on Downdetector and if it is down then simply wait it out.
  • iPhone Issue: From the past week, the iPhone’s are suffering from Error 83  a lot more frequently. There are technicians working on this, and many efforts have been made. Till a workaround is provided you can try switching to other devices to stream Disney +.
  • Streaming Disney + on the Laptop First Time: Anytime you try to stream Disney + in a new device, you will get a reminder from Disney +. The option for testing a playback will arise, just Click on “Allow,” and the DRM check will begin. After some time, tap on the “Dismiss” option, and play any video again.

Tip: Download your desired TV shows from the Disney + app in your Smartphone; if a server issue occurred, then you can still watch your favorite shows or movies on Disney +.


While the testing is going in the Netherlands for the beta of Disney +, Error 83 was the most occurred error in laptops or PCs.  It was stated that the devices could not pass through the DRM check. They were convinced that the issues are from the Disney + side as their streaming service is getting a lot of DRM failures, but here are some problems that can come actually from your side too.

  • Now the Disney + is working on the project of Chrome books, so Linux systems will get support with it. As till now, they are no support for the Disney + apps with Linux. The Chromebook will definitely bring the Linux; then, the Error 83 issue will be easily fixed.
  • Disney + only works with the very least amount of desktop browsers, such as Apple Safari, Microsoft Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. Make sure you are using any of these in order to stream Disney +.
  • If your Smart TVs and other entertainment devices do not offer browser support, then try Airplay or Chromecast to get the Disney + app on your TV.
  • Although Disney + is new in the market and the fixes take time. The repairs are in the process of developing.
