Disney + is already passing the 50 million subscriber mark - Geeko
Just launched in France, Disney + has already crossed the bar of 50 million subscribers worldwide, a gain of 28 million subscribers since the last census.
If it is in the United States that the Disney streaming platform has the highest number of subscribers, it would already have recorded excellent figures in the new markets where it was launched: France, Germany , the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, India, Austria and Switzerland. Encouraging results for the group, which has just started deploying internationally.
With more than 167 million paid subscribers, Netflix remains a big step ahead of Disney +, but the progress of the competing streaming platform of Netflix is something to worry other players.
A snub to competitors
“We are delighted that Disney + appeals to millions of people around the world. And we think this is a positive sign for the expansion of service in Western Europe, Japan and Latin America in the coming months, "said Kevin Mayer, director of consumer affairs at Disney .
The platform's numbers are all the more impressive given that Disney has put practically no effort into producing content so far. The only big exclusivity of the platform is the series The Mandalorian , in the universe of Star Wars . The Marvel series and other future big exclusives won't arrive until the end of the summer. What to question the strategy of competitors?
Why curb binge-watching is it the good idea of Disney + especially in full containment?
