Disney+ is currently in its third year of operation, and it’s evolved so much since its start in 2019.
The streaming platform has been picking up speed recently with the frequent additions of new, exclusive content. With the recent successes of their content based on Marvel and Star Wars, Disney+ has been creating a lot of content to attract new subscribers. Today was the the Quarter 2 Earnings Call for the Walt Disney Company, and they released new information about the service.
As of April 2022, Disney+ reported having 137.7 million subscribers. Around this time last year, Disney reported that Disney+ had 103.6 million subscribers. That means that the service has seen a 33% increase in subscribers in the last year.
Disney reported adding 7.9 million subscribers in this quarter alone, with Bob Chapek, the CEO of the company quoted as saying “Our strong results in the second quarter, including fantastic performance at our domestic parks and continued growth of our streaming services… once again proved that we are in a league of our own.” This comes just months after the announcement that an ad-supported subscription to the service will be coming later this year.
The service has been focusing heavily on additions to the Marvel and Star Wars universes with shows like WandaVision, Loki, The Book of Boba Fett, and the new show, Obi-Wan Kenobi that is going to be released later this month. These shows have been drawing subscribers to the streaming service, as well as earning awards and accolades for the company (WandaVision won an Emmy and was nominated for a Grammy along with The Mandalorian).
