Disney+ Hits 94.9 Million Subscribers, Already Beating Its 4-Year Goal

11 February, 2021

During its earnings report for the December quarter, The Walt Disney Company announced that its streaming platform surpassed 94.9 million subscribers. Disney+, which already exceeded the company’s initial subscriber goal of 60-90 million by 2024, now is expected to have 230-260 million subscribers by 2024. Furthermore, as that 94.9 million benchmark was registered on January 2, the platform may have received a significant boost in subscribers thanks to the debut of its first Marvel Studios TV series, “WandaVision,” which was released on January 15 and is enjoying great success right now.

Assuming the highly anticipated show has caused a similar bump in subscribers, it is possible that Disney+ has already managed to cross the 100 million subscriber mark by now. In fact, according to Parrot Analytics’ latest data, “WandaVision” has become the world’s most in-demand TV show, across all platforms. Following a relatively soft first week, where it rattled between #7 and number #35 worldwide, the show had been the second or third most in-demand series since January 22, when episode three was released.
