The Disney+ streaming platform has received more than 10 million subscribers in just 24 hours since the debut of the platform, according to an official statement released by Disney.
The large number of subscribers in such a short time can be justified by the popularity of Disney and titles but also by the fact that there is the possibility for users to access the Disney+ platform on a seven days trial basis. Also, people who have the Unlimited subscription from Verizon can access the Disney+ platform for free for one year.
The Disney+ streaming service catalogue includes, among others, the Star Wars saga ( which also gets a lot of attention because of the new The Mandalorian series ), the 16 movies from Marvel and Pixar animations.
Disney+ was released in the United States, Canada and Netherlands on November 12, and on November 19 the Disney+ platform will become available in Australia and New Zealand and in the spring of next year the streaming platform from Disney will also be available in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain and Italy.
People who tested the Disney+ platform are happy with the accessible price ( $6.99 / month ), attractive interface, 4K content, but they were not very happy with the fact that there are few original titles available.
Disney expects Disney+ to have at least 60 million subscribers by the end of 2024. To compare, Hulu has approximately 30 million subscribers right now while Netflix is the leader of the streaming market with approximately 150 million subscribers world wide.
