Disney+ Reaches Ten Million Subscribers on the First Day
The new Disney + streaming service has collected ten million subscribers within 24 hours. The launch was somewhat tricky due to technical problems, but that did not stop millions of people from taking out a subscription.
Disney announced the milestone last night. The company counts testers (who also had to pay from November 12) in the number of ten million.
Star Wars series The Mandalorian, exclusively to be seen on the streaming service, was viewed over two million times on the first day, according to insiders. In total, members watched 1.3 million hours of content.
Despite the flying start, Disney still has a lot of market share to conquer. The leading competitor, Netflix, has 158 million subscribers worldwide. Hulu, another streaming service, stands at 28.5 million paying members.
The price difference between Disney + and Netflix is striking. The new streaming service opts for a cheaper strategy!
