We all knew the launch of Disney Plus was going to shake up the streaming market, but by how much exactly? 10 million individual shakes, according to Disney's recent announcement on Wednesday.
Disney Plus launched this past Tuesday, and the company has taken the streaming wars by the horns by already pulling in 10 million subscribers. For comparison on how much that exactly is, the Disney-owned Hulu has more than 28 million subscribers as of May this year. Another comparison is Netflix, who has 97 million subscribers internationally, as of the third quarter of 2019.
The reason for the massive influx of subscribers to Disney Plus is due to it being not only significantly cheaper than the other streaming services at $6.99 a month, but it also offers a gigantic library of content that attracts not only children but adults. With Disney moving this many paying subscribers within just the first couple of days of being live, other streaming services such as Netflix are going to be shaking in their boots at what the future holds for them.
