Today, the Walt Disney Company has released its latest quarterly results for the third quarter of 2022 and that means we get an updated look at how many subscribers Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ have.
This gives us a clear indication of how the apps are doing, especially with growth or decline in subscriber numbers. These subscriber numbers are based up to 2nd July 2022.
With the launch of Disney+ in over 40 countries across Africa, The Middle East and Europe during this quarter, this gave a significant boost from new subscribers internationally.
Disney+ now has 152.1 million subscribers globally, up over 14 million subscribers from 137.7 million subscribers last quarter.
In a statement: Disney CEO Bob Chapek said:
“We had an excellent quarter, with our world-class creative and business teams powering outstanding performance at our domestic theme parks, big increases in live-sports viewership, and significant subscriber growth at our streaming services. With 14.4 million Disney+ subscribers added in the fiscal third quarter, we now have 221 million total subscriptions across our streaming offerings. We continue to transform entertainment as we near our second century, with compelling new storytelling across our many platforms and unique immersive physical experiences that exceed guest expectations, all of which are reflected in our strong operating results this quarter.”
