We’re getting lots of BIG Disney news today!
We’ve already heard about a potential increase in Disneyland’s capacity, and we’re expecting LOTS more updates as part of Disney’s Quarterly Earnings Call. And now, we’ve got a progress report on Disney’s streaming service, Disney+!
Disney+ launched on November 12th, 2019, and we’ve seen it shatter goals as its subscriber count grows. In April 2020, it had over 50 million subscribers; by December that year, that number had grown to 86.8 million. The service surpassed 100 million subscribers in March 2021, which is WAY above its original goal of 60-90 million subscribers by 2024.
Now, Disney has reported the latest numbers. In just 2 months, the service has gained 3 million subscribers for a grand total of 103.6 million. At the end of last year’s Quarter 2, that number was just 33.5 million. However, this number is a bit lower than analyst’s prediction for the quarter, which according to Yahoo Finance was 110.3 million.
The company has lofty new goals to reflect this growth, including the release of over 100 titles per year and expansions of the Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney franchises. We’ll continue to keep you posted on its progress, so stay tuned to DFB!
