During last weeks Walt Disney Company financial quarterly results, it was announced that Disney+ now has 54.5 million subscribers.  This has led to Digital TV Research analyst Simon Murray has “completely revised” his forecast for how many subscribers the streaming platform will manage by 2025.

His latest forecast is predicting that Disney+ will hit 202 million subscribers by 2025.

“We have completely revised our forecasts for 138 countries in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.  A major impact of lockdown has been a steep rise in SVOD subscriptions.”

This latest report is also predicting that Netflix will reach from 238 million to 258 million subscribers globally by 2025.  While HBO Max is expected to hit 25 million subscribers by 2025 and Apple TV+ will manage 14 million subscribers.

Disney+ still has to launch across Asia, Latin America, Africa and some European countries.

How many subscribers do you think Disney+ will manage to get by 2025?

    If Disney+ can get to a point where there 2 - 3 high quality episodes dropping every week, then I can see them reaching this number. By high quality, I mean solid Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar and select Disney and 20th Fox titles.
