Disney+ gains more than 94 million subscribers globally
Disney has now topped the 90 million goal that it had previously set for Disney+ sign-ups by the end of fiscal 2024.
‘The Mandalorian’ season 2 and animated-film ‘Soul’ have proved to be major subscriber gainers for Disney+The two stories have gained the streaming platform over 94.9 million subscribers during the final three months of the year, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Disney has now topped the 90 million goal that it had previously set for Disney+ sign-ups by the end of fiscal 2024. It has also hit a milestone that took Netflix nearly a decade to reach. Disney+ has been able to achieve significant market penetration thanks in large part to its relationship with Indian streamer Hotstar, which it acquired as part of its purchase of the 20th Century Fox assets. The company disclosed in December that Hotstar, which comes bundled with Disney+ programming in India, accounted for 30 percent — or around 26 million — of Disney+’s total subscribers.
The company has since revised that four-year plan with a new goal of reaching between 230 million and 260 million subscribers by 2024.
