I actually saw a tweet from someone earlier today that they called and won last night, and were using the app! He specifically said he was shocked, thinking he had no chance with the delay. But ... he was caller 10!

It would be interesting to know how quickly they got through when calling.  Was it seconds, or several minutes later?

He said he got through on his 7th try from when he first heard it start. Yet, other people say they have over a 2 minute lag between their car and the app, so sounds like it's really up in the air for each person. ?

Interesting. It just played at 1:46 CST through the app. So that's either the second time and that's it for the day, or it plays at different times in different time zones. I wonder if they're only doing the call-in contest for people streaming in EST?

I happened to load the app just then and saw that it was playing again and thought I had some error in the "go live" - keeping it interesting I guess, maybe they'll play again today at this rate.

Here's the thing about the lag (and I'm clearly only speculating) - the car is live but you're driving so it still takes time to pull to the side etc. to start calling in. Meanwhile, it starts a bit later on the app/desktop but you also probably start calling around the same time as people who are driving (I hope anyway - I would like to think no one is calling while barreling down the freeway - please do not incriminate yourselves here haha). So yeah, the car is real deal live but you know, driving. Unless people are just sitting in their driveways hanging out for AOH and if so, more power!

Regarding winners, I've seen peeps posting on Twitter using the hashtag saying they were picked so I know people were selected however, as someone said before not all of those folks may be able to make it at this late date if they don't live in the area so they may move on to other entrants.

With only about 150 - 200 pair estimated to be given away based on an earlier calculation in this thread when you combine all of the contests (which is a really, really low number for fans/subscribers to be in the house sadly) I hope that more Zootopians make it if others can't make it.

The more I realize the above point regarding how little tickets were actually given away, it makes us feel CRAZY lucky to have won our way in. My husband bought lottery tickets on Friday in fact, haha.

Been browsing these comments for a while, trying my luck too on the radio and elsewhere, and just want to say a big thank you to everyone here providing their insight. It's very helpful (and I'm having fun being hopeful!).  ?

 Did they just play Angel of Harlem about 10 minutes ago? I am trying to figure out a problem with my phone. Thanks.

I've been listening to the app continuously this afternoon and did not hear it 10 mins ago.

Thank you! I just got out of a meeting and haven’t been able to listen for the last few hours. Fingers crossed everyone! Good luck to all the other hopefuls!

I'd just be happy if they confirmed that all the tickets offered have already been claimed - that way, those who haven't won tickets can stop hoping in vain.

It would be nice.
