Disney + was born a year ago, and according to data revealed by the company, it currently has 73.7 million subscribers, up from 60.5 million last August. Disney’s streaming service has therefore gained nearly 13.2 million subscribers in a short period of time.
This number greatly exceeds what was expected by the company, since when Disney + launched in November 2019, the company had between 60 and 90 million subscribers … by 2024. And apparently this goal has already been achieved in just one year, when the plans were 5 years old. But it’s important to note that many subscribers in the United States still have free access to Disney +, thanks to a deal with Verizon. The operator offers its customers access to the streaming service for one year. As the year of the offering ends this month only for those customers, it will be interesting to see the next numbers.
Disney + already has nearly 74 million subscribers
In addition to Disney +, Disney announced that its revenue for the July-September period fell 23% to $ 14.71 billion. Mickey’s group recorded a net loss of $ 710 million due to Covid-19. The health crisis has notably caused the closure of its amusement parks.
Still, its shares rose 3.29% to $ 139.98 after the drop in profits. Analysts expected worse (mainly in revenue).
And for those who don’t know, Disney + is already officially operating in Portugal, and costs € 6.99 per month, or € 69.99 per year. In Brazil, the service will launch on November 17, but you can now subscribe to it at a discount. For more information or a subscription, simply access here.
