Disney+ surfaced in November 2019, and just five months that the streaming platform was able to gather 50 million paying subscribers, the business revealed. It’s presently available in a dozen of countries and markets, including India, which singlehandedly added 8M into the equation.
The streaming platform enlarged to Western Europe a month, and then it struck India in partnership with neighbourhood popular streaming agency Hotstar. On the other hand, the eight million paying consumers aren’t going to bring the same quantity of income since the identical number of people from another current market, since annual subscription in India is no greater than $20 for the maximum tier.
For comparison, users in Europe will need to shed $60 (about $65), whereas US subscribers need to pay $70 annually.
The library of Disney+ includes plenty of films in Disney, Pixar, Marvel, the Star Wars franchise, and Nat Geo. There’s also all 30+ seasons of The Simpsons, although with a few market restrictions on the latest episodes.
Kevin Mayer, Chairman of Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International Business, said the growth will last through 2020 and Disney+ will be available to more Western European countries, Japan, and Latin America.
