Disney Plus was released earlier this week and it has been done incredibly well, remarkably well.
It’s been reported by Deadline that Disney’s streaming service has just gone over 10 million subscribers in its first few days.
There have been some early glitches with the streaming service, and there was a problem with the aspect ratio shows like The Simpsons are being shown in.
However, these glitches can be put down to the fact there are so many people subscribing to Disney Plus and also that there are so many people subscribing to the streaming service.
Disney Plus is now the most popular streaming service in North America, and it’s only been live for a few days.
Executives over a Disney have predicted that Disney Plus will be able to pull in between 60 and 90 million subscribers around the world by 2024.
Netflix has around 163 million subscribers worldwide at the moment after basically single-handedly changing the way we consume content ten years ago.
Disney Plus’ launch went pretty well by the looks of it
Disney Plus went live last Tuesday in the US, Canada and the Netherlands and will arrive in the UK and other parts of the world on March 31st, 2020.
The streaming service has a huge catalogue of content already, having movies and TV shows from the likes of Marvel, Lucasfilm, Pixar and National Geographic.
The show launched with the first episode of The Mandalorian and people seemed to really enjoy the new Star Wars show.
It won’t be too long before Disney Plus become very important for Star Wars and Marvel Cinematic Universe fans as well as classic Disney movie fans.
