Disney+ passes 100 million global paid subscribers

Disney+ has hit yet another major milestone, as the streaming service has surpassed 100 million global paid subscribers.


News of this accomplishment, which happened just 16 months after Disney+’s launch, was shared during Disney’s virtual Annual Meeting of Shareholders on March 9, 2021.

“The enormous success of Disney+—which has now surpassed 100 million subscribers—has inspired us to be even more ambitious, and to significantly increase our investment in the development of high-quality content,” said CEO Bob Chapek. “In fact, we set a target of 100+ new titles per year, and this includes Disney Animation, Disney Live Action, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. Our direct-to-consumer business is the Company’s top priority, and our robust pipeline of content will continue to fuel its growth.”

Disney+ originally launched in the U.S. on Nov. 12, 2019, and has rolled out across 59 countries including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Latin America, and—most recently—Singapore.
