Dafne initially reported this issue for us in the tvOS 15.5.1 review page:

I could’t replicate the issue myself, but managed to find a similar report on Reddit.

Apparently this Disnsey+ iOS bug is only triggered if you play content from the ‘Up Next’ session!

Workaround: At the moment there’s no actual fix! you can bypass it by opening the Disney+ app and stream the content from within the app.

Stay tuned for any Disney+ update for tvOS or any other Apple TV or tvOS software update!

Fact: tvOS 16 is already out for testing and you can easily install tvOS 16 Public Beta, or wait until it’s released to everyone in the fall.

Tip: tvOS 15.6 is around the corner. We expect it to go live alongside iOS 15.6, watchOS 8.6 and more, very soon. The Release Candidate (RC) is already out.
