Disney Circle on R8500 For 2020

Hi, I downloaded nighthawk app since the genie one won't be supported anymore. I had to upgrade the firmware in my router to the newest one, and, when I want to enable the parental controls, it takes me to the Disney Circle page, but, it clearly says that my router is not supported. 

 

So my question is very simple, Will this router be supported by Disney Circle shortly? 

 

Thanks.

Hi all, Circle will be rolled out to other models but we do not have any ETA for specific models.

I would like to know this information also since I have a R8500 and I want parental control on it.  What ever happened to the OpenDNS that used to be on it.  It's ridiculous that an expensive router like this doesn't have any kind of parental control on it.  I'm considering to get another brand if this doesn't get resolved soon.
