Disney+ Surpasses 100 Million Subscribers, More Original Content Promised
During today’s The Walt Disney Company’s Shareholder Meeting, it was announced that Disney+ has just surpassed 100 million global subscribers. What’s even more impressive is that they were able to do since its launch just 16 months ago on November 12, 2019.
During today’s Shareholder Meeting, Bob Chapek, CEO of The Walt Disney Company said, “The enormous success of Disney+ – which has now surpassed 100 million subscribers – has inspired us to be even more ambitious, and to significantly increase our investment in the development of high quality content. In fact, we set a target of 100+ new titles per year, and this includes Disney Animation, Disney Live Action, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. Our direct-to-consumer business is the Company’s top priority, and our robust pipeline of content will continue to fuel its growth.”
The Walt Disney Company couldn’t have picked a better time to launch Disney+ back in November 2019. Little did anyone know that the entire world was just about to shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With Disney Parks around the world closed, streaming services such as Disney+ saw subscribers drastically increase since everyone was stuck at home with much more free time on their hands.
Currently, Disney+ is available in 59 countries around the world and is home to several exclusive series such as The Mandalorian and Wandavision and iconic Disney movies as well as Star Wars and Marvel movies.
