Launched five months ago, the streaming service is now available in more than a dozen countries across the world.
Disney Plus has announced that the streaming service has now achieved another new milestone, with 50m paid subscribers globally within five months after its US launch.
Disney announced the numbers after recent launches of the service in the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria and Switzerland.
Disney Plus also became available in India from April 3, where it is offered through the Hotstar service that Disney inherited from Fox. Disney said the sub-continent accounted for approximately 8m of the 50m sign-ups. Although the streaming service is not available in the UAE, Disney content and Disney+ Originals are available through OSN.
Commenting on the milestone, Kevin Mayer, Chairman of Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International, said: “We’re truly humbled that Disney Plus 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. 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 Plus.”
