Disney Plus reaches 94.9 million subscribers | Digital Trends Spanish
2020 ended up being a very good year for the different services of streaming. The last season marked the emergence of new platforms, in addition to shooting the number of people who consumed this type of content.
This hot streak also benefited the newer companies in this sector. Disney, for example, announced on Thursday that its streaming Disney Plus surpassed 94.9 million subscribers.
The company made this announcement as part of its earnings report for the fourth quarter of 2020. Once this information was released, the firm’s shares rose about 2 percent, according to a CNBC report.
In this way, Disney in November surpassed its initial goal of having between 60 and 90 million subscribers by 2024.
In this new – and optimistic – scenario, the company’s new projections for the platform point to having between 230 and 260 million subscribers in 2024.
Since its launch in November 2019, Disney Plus has seen significant growth in subscriber numbers.
On its first day, the platform already had 10 million registrations, a figure that reached 26.5 million at the end of the first quarter.
Predictably, the pandemic was a major boost, so 2020 ended up being a great year for the service of streaming.
Now, the company will bet on a greater number of its own productions. This includes almost a dozen Marvel series and more than 10 shows belonging to the Star Wars universe, which aim to resume the successful legacy left by The Mandalorian.
