Disney+ surpasses 10 million subscribers on first day


Disney's still got to the magic. The House of Mouse launched its streaming service, Disney+, this week and saw more than 10 million subscribers in its first day and that's despite some users’ connection problems. The app was downloaded more than 3.2 million times.

To put everything into additional context, analysts projected that Disney+ would have anywhere between 10-18 million subscribers in its first year. Disney has signed up more than half of those projected numbers in 24 hours.

It was a well executed launch with content that reinforced that found a lot of parents paying for their kids but staying for themselves. Where else are you going to watch Gargoyles? The streaming content war is heating up, and it's a win for consumers (still cheaper than cable!)
