Disney+ Tops Nextflix for Most Views in 2020
As we have been reporting, The Walt Disney’s Company’s streaming service, Disney+, continues to break records. And, now they have broken one more. The Disney Insider is reporting that from the latest Nielsen ratings, Disney+ has more views than Netflix in 2020.
Disney+ can claim that seven of the top 10 films streamed in 2020 was on their platform including the most-streamed film of 2020, Frozen II. Here is the complete top 10 list and what streaming service they are on:
- Frozen II – Disney+
- Moana – Disney+
- Secret Life of Pets 2 – Netflix
- Onward – Disney+
- Dr. Seuss’ the Grinch – Netflix
- Hamilton – Disney+
- Spencer Confidential – Netflix
- Aladdin (2019) – Disney+
- Toy Story 4 – Disney+
- Zootopia – Disney+
Disney+ received an extra boost in 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Several movies that were supposed to be released to movie theaters were diverted to the streaming platform including Soul. Onward was actually originally released directly to theaters but was quickly made available on Disney+ as the world began to shut down.
There were even a few films that were scheduled to arrive on Disney+ at a later date that had their debuts moved up including Frozen II and Hamilton. And, of course, with ongoing quarantines, most people spent a lot more time in the comfort and safety of their own home.
As Disney Parks around the globe closed in addition to pretty much the entire world closing in 2020, Disney+ saw their subscribers increase at drastic numbers. With another round of lock downs underway for many parts of the country as we get into 2021, Disney+ is likely to see even more increases to their subscriber numbers. Some even believe that Disney+ essentially saved the entire Walt Disney Company during the drastic downturn experiences in the Parks Division last year.
