Disney Plus has more than 70 million subscribers worldwide
The Disney Plus or Disney + platform wraps up a year this Thursday, November 12, and celebrates success with more than 73.7 million subscribers worldwide – a figure that exceeds the company’s own projections.
Disney’s initial forecast predicted that the service would reach between 60 and 90 million people in the first five years after launch, but with the scenario of social isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic and growing demand for streaming around the world, the company has seen its customer base increase rapidly.
It’s no coincidence that the company announced a reorganization of its productions to focus on streaming movies and series. Another Disney broadcast arm, Hulu, has also grown, totaling 36.6 million members in the United States, and ESPN Plus reaches 10.3 million.
The results in terms of subscribers are expressive, although Netflix is still in the lead with 195 million.
