Just a few months after reporting that Disney+ had more than nearly 60 million paying subscribers, Disney has revealed that its streaming service has continued to grow in a big way.
Disney+ had 73.7 million customers at the end of Disney's fiscal fourth quarter, which wrapped up on October 3. The service actually launched one year ago today, meaning Disney+ had a pretty strong first year.
Looking at its entire first year, Disney+ finished its first quarter of existence with 26.5 million paying subscribers, and that figure grew to 33.5 million in the second quarter of 2020. Then in the third quarter Disney+ had 57.5 million paying customers, and now that it's one year old, Disney+ has a total of 73.7 million subscribers.
Disney's other streaming services saw growth from Q3 to Q4, though it wasn't nearly as big as Disney+. ESPN+ gained nearly two million subs to finish Q4 with 10.3 million paying subscribers, while Hulu added more than 1 million total customers to finish Q4 with 36.6 million customers, a figure that includes both live TV and on-demand services.
Have you tried Disney+ at all in its first year of existence? If so, what do you think of it?
