Disney+ is big!
CEO Bob Chapek confirmed that the streaming service hit a big milestone, surpassing 100 million subscribers worldwide.
It’s currently available in 59 countries.
“The enormous success of Disney+ —which has now surpassed 100 million subscribers—has inspired us to be even more ambitious, and to significantly increase our investment in the development of high-quality content,” Bob said during a shareholders meeting.
“In fact, we set a target of 100+ new titles per year, and this includes Disney Animation, Disney Live Action, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. Our direct-to-consumer business is the Company’s top priority, and our robust pipeline of content will continue to fuel its growth.”
Disney+ launched in November of 2019 and already has a long list of original programming across multiple categories.
At the same time, Netflix just renewed a bunch of new shows for 2021.
