New projections from Digital TV Research estimate that in 2026, Netflix will continue to be the top largest streaming service in the world with 275 million subscribers. Since Disney+ had a slow start, only getting 118.1 million subscribers in the last quarter, a tiny growth spurt of 2.1 million subs, it’s predicted that they will catch up and surpass Netflix around 2027.
However, this revision doesn’t change the fact that Disney+ will also be a big winner in the streaming wars, dominating with a total of 271 million subs in 2026. This is mainly due to the Hotstar brand and its estimated 102 million subs (38%) in 13 countries across Asia.
