Disney+ Gains 50 Million Subscribers

Launched five months ago, the new Disney+ streaming service has now achieved 50 million paid subscribers globally:

"We're truly humbled that 'Disney+' is resonating with millions around the globe and believe this bodes well for our continued expansion throughout Western Europe and into Japan and all of Latin America later this year," said Kevin Mayer, Chairman of Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International.

"Great storytelling inspires and uplifts, and we are in the fortunate position of being able to deliver a vast array of great entertainment rooted in joy and optimism on Disney+."

In the past two weeks, 'Disney+' rolled out in eight Western European countries including the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria and Switzerland. Additionally, 'Disney+' became available last week in India, where it is offered in conjunction with the existing 'Hotstar' service, and already accounts for approximately eight million of Disney+'s 50 million paid subscribers.
