Disney+ this week announced that the paid subscriber count has surpassed the 50 million milestone. Disney+ was launched first in the US, five months ago, on November 12.
Netflix, in comparison, has around 167 million subscribers, and it is available worldwide.
Disney+ is available in Germany, UK, Ireland, France, Italy, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, USA, Canada, Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, and Puerto Rico.
“We’re truly humbled that Disney+ is resonating with millions around the globe, and believe this bodes well for our continued expansion throughout Western Europe and into Japan and all of Latin America later this year,” said Kevin Mayer, Chairman of Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International. “Great storytelling inspires and uplifts, and we are in the fortunate position of being able to deliver a vast array of great entertainment rooted in joy and optimism on Disney+.”
