Disney has just shared today that it’s video streaming service has surpassed 50 million subscribers after just five months after launch.
Obviously, the ongoing pandemic has a large role to play in the number of sign-ups, given that a lot of people are stuck at home with nowhere to go.
Still, this is impressive especially when you consider that just two months ago, the company said it had over 28 million subscribers. Which means it added around 22 million subscribers in the past two months.
In comparison, Netflix has over 167 million subscribers all around the world. Apple hasn’t disclosed how many subscribers its video streaming service, AppleTV+, has.
Also worth noting is that Disney+ is available in far fewer countries that Netflix. Right now, the only major markets Disney+ is available in are Canada, UK, India, Australia, Germany, Italy, Spain, France, and Austria.
As of now, there’s no word yet on when Disney+ will be available in our region. Disney said in a press release that it plans to roll out Disney+ in Western Europe, Japan, and all of Latin America later this year.
