Video on-demand streaming network, Disney+, has in 5 months after launch pulled in 50 million paid subscribers worldwide.
The media giant announced this on Wednesday, April 8, in a statement released by Kevin Mayer, chairman of Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International where he expressed the company’s excitement, describing it as a humbling to say the least.
The chairman noted: “We’re truly humbled that Disney+ is resonating with millions around the globe.”
On how the company achieved the feat, the chairman explained that “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+.”
This tremendous growth, according industry reviewers, was expected given the fact that Disney+ has been expanding quite sporadically since its launch.
