Disney+ Has 10 Million Subcribers On It’s First DAY

If you had issues initially trying to download Disney+ Tuesday when it launched, that’s because 9,999,999 other people were trying to do the same thing at the same time.

You get new original series like the Star Wars drama The Mandalorian as well as an archive of Disney-owned franchises such as Marvel movies with the streaming service. All told, currently you’ll have access to nearly 500 films and 7,500 TV episodes.

So far, customers like its sleek interface, low price ($6.99 per month), and presenting content in 4K by default (rather than offering a higher streaming rate as a pricey add-on, like Netflix does). On the downside, critics have noticed there’s not a lot of original new content yet, and also a lot of less impressive archival filler.

That said, Twitter was freaking out about the overwhelming choices.

Disney has predicted they’ll have at least 60 million subscribers around the world by 2024. By comparison, Netflix has roughly 150 million worldwide.
