Disney+ was released in mid-November 2019 for avid fans. It’s on the verge of being under the weight of so many people trying to stream the first two episodes of Mandalorian at once. Despite the common growing pains, Disney has developed a very successful streaming service with an amazing catalog of movies and series. The Disney+ app is so popular that it has surpassed 100 million downloads on the Play Store 16 months after its launch.
The timing of this threshold is interesting by chance. Disney announced last week that it had reached 100 million subscribers.. We don’t know how many people signed up and canceled during this period, so we don’t see a direct correlation between subscribers and the platform they’re using, but it still suggests that a significant number of viewers are watching through their Android phones. And tablets, or set-top boxes and TVs running Android TV.
Netflix still holds the lead in streaming services with 200 million subscribers, and Amazon could be ranked second on Prime Video with 150 million subscribers. While Disney+ ranks third at 100 million, counting 40 million Hulu (owned by a majority of Disney) subscribers makes the gap between second and third place much smaller.
Unlike Netflix, Disney+ is preinstalled on devices like the Nvidia Shield and several TVs, so the number of installs hasn’t increased significantly. However, the download number has been helped by many promotions, such as: 3 months offer to US Chromebook users And a few Special package offers and giveaways through partners such as Verizon.
Of course, it will take some time if you are only looking at the number of installations. 10 billion Netflix already has it. It’s hard to turn away thanks to hugely successful titles like Wandavision and The Mandalorian. New movies about every 2 weeks, Disney+ is most likely keeping a fairly fast pace. Remember, the company It promises over 100 new titles every year., And that wouldn’t be difficult for the company that owns the rights to Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, and almost every anime princess in history.
