Disney is kicking off their new streaming service, Disney+ this week and according to Digital TV Research via the Hollywood Reporter, they are predicting that Disney+ will have 101.2 million subscribers worldwide by 2025.

Digital TV Research said:

“Netflix will increase by 70 million subscribers; revealing that there is still growth for the most established platform. However, Netflix will only add 6 million subscribers in the U.S. The SVOD sector received a boost in November…with the rollouts of Disney+ and Apple TV+. A further lift will come when HBO Max starts in spring 2020.”

This is much higher than the predicted amount of subscribers that Disney has previously said it is expecting.

Disney has been trying to boost early subscriber numbers by offering impressive long term deals during the summer and its recent offer of giving a years subscription to Verizon customers.

The initial launch this week will bring Disney+ to the US and Canada, along with the Netherlands, which has been running as a trial since September.  Australia and New Zealand will follow next week on the 19th November.  And on March 31st 2020, Disney+ will launch in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Italy, France and Spain.  With further roll outs planned for across Eastern Europe, Asia and Latin America within the first 2 years of Disney+ launching.

Competition between the rival streaming services is bringing down prices and resulting in large amounts of original content being created to keep subscribers.
