Disney+ Reaches 28 Million Subscribers Since Launching in November. Disney was quick to announce the initial subscriber count at the time of launch, having signed on 10 million subscribers during their November 2019 launch. Disney has been adamant about sharing reports of growth during their quarterly earnings call only and keeping to their word, Disney CEO Bob Iger waited to share the news of Disney+’s new subscriber numbers until said phone call on Tuesday, February 4th.
“We had a strong first quarter, highlighted by the launch of Disney+, which has exceeded even our greatest expectations,” said Iger. “Thanks to our incredible collection of brands, outstanding content from our creative engines and state-of-the-art technology, we believe our direct-to-consumer services, including Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu, position us well for continued growth in today’s dynamic media environment.”
According to the quarterly report from The Walt Disney Company, Disney+ is now sitting at 28 million subscribers, with hopes of reaching 60-90 millions subscribers by 2024.
It appears that Disney is well on their way to reaching their goal and we can’t wait to see what The Walt Disney Company has in store for Disney+.
