Disney+ exceeds 10 million subscribers in one day beating a couple of other streaming competitors who have been around for a while.
The Walt Disney company officially launched its streaming platform on 13th November, 2019; just two days ago with their debut live-action series, “The Mandalorian.” The Disney+ app was downloaded more than 3.2 million times in less than 24 hours seeing more than 2 million streams overnight.
On this announcement, Disney shares rose up by more than 7%. Of course, the spike in subscribers on the platform could be attributed to Disney offering a 7-day free trial or the company’s partnership with Verizon which is also offering its customers a free year subscription to the service.

It is yet to be seen whether these subscribers will renew after, this will depend on whether Disney is able to deliver better content that will keep them hooked.
Let us not forget however that Disney also owns the largest chunk of Hulu ever since it bought Fox, it also owns ABC (which has its own streaming platform), ESPN+ and Freeform which is majorly a streaming channel famously known for airing Grown-ish.
The fuss over Disney+ hitting these numbers is because the platform has managed to surpass many of its competitors who have been around for a while in just a day of launch such as CBS (8 million subscribers), ESPN+ (3.5 million subscribers), DAZN (4 million subscribers) and Crunchyroll (2 million subscribers).
Disney+ is now available internationally and you can subscribe for Ugx 25,797.26 ($6.99) a month or Ugx 258,304.74 ($69.99) per year.
