Disney Plus has gained 28.6 million subscribers since launching in November

4 February, 2020

The success of Disney Plus was likely boosted by its “Star Wars” live-action TV series, “The Mandalorian” (with help from Baby Yoda). It was the most in-demand streaming series in the world, according to the data company Parrot Analytics, before Netflix’s “The Witcher” topped it.

One of Disney’s streaming-war foes, Apple TV Plus, also launched in November, but the company has not announced any subscriber numbers. Apple CEO Tim Cook did say last week that the service was “off to a rousing start,” and audience-demand data for its original shows provided by Parrot Analytics backs that up. Six Apple originals were among the top 10 streaming premieres in the US in the fourth quarter of 2019.
