Forums - Movies Discussion - Disney+ 2020 show release months revealed, up to 28.6m subs

https://www.engadget.com/2020/02/04/disney-plus-subscribers/

Hulu, which Disney now owns, is up to 30.7m subs, making Hulu and Disney+ 3rd and 4th place in terms of subscription tv streaming services currently, behind Amazon Prime Video at #2 (less than 150m) and Netflix at #1 (169m). 

Disney announced in this financial call that both Disney+ and Hulu will be expanding into international markets, but Disney+ will expand internationally first, with a partial EU expansion in March, more of EU over the Summer, and Latin America over the course of 3 months starting in the Fall. 

Bob Iger also announced that there may be spinoff shows featuring side characters from The Mandalorian, and confirmed that Star Wars movies are on a hiatus with Star Wars shows being the main focus right now.

I see, so Davis is the head of Disney.



Wow, I didnt realize that Amazon Prime had a base of nearly 150m. Thats around 100m more than I thought. 

Either way i think its safe to say nearly 30m subscribers is a lot for Disney+ considering its just released in 6 countries I believe? Thats like 8 times the entire population of Uruguay. In a month or so when it becomes available for the rest of Europe and Latin America we'll have a better understaing of how well its gonna do in comparison, but I have no reason to believe it wont reach the numbers of APrime or Netflix.

Well, to be fair, we don't know exactly how many of those 150m Prime subs use Prime Video, all Amazon announced was the Prime Video viewership was double what it was last year. Prime Video isn't even available in all Amazon Prime markets I think. That's why I said less than 150m, because we don't know exact numbers, only that it is less than the 150m total Prime subs. But it's safe to say that Prime Video is 2nd place over Hulu and Disney+.

As for the rest of the subscription services, CBS All-Access was at 4m last time they announced numbers, which was nearly a year ago, maybe they will post a new update now that Star Trek Picard is out and likely boosting their sub numbers. NBC is releasing one called Peacock in April 2020. HBO has HBO Max coming in May 2020. There is going to be alot of competition in the tv streaming field soon.

I watch Amazon Prime Video, but I have it only as a by-product of already having Amazon Prime. Should I decide to get rid of Amazon Prime, I wouldn't change my mind because of the video subscription. I have Netflix, and occasionally Disney+, specifically to watch their shows.

I mainly only watch The Grand Tour on Prime personally. None of their other originals interest me. I do watch some 3rd party content on there though, especially if it's not available on Netflix or Hulu.

Yep, same on the Grand Tour.

I watched Jack Ryan which was solid in season 1 and a let-down in season 2. Might give Treadstone a look. Eventually, if they don't screw it up, the Lord of the Rings show could be epic.

Yeah, I will definitely watch the LOTR show. 



I can't wait for HBO Max. Hopefully they improve their video player and get all the DCU shows on there because that app is awful.

If I wasn't mooching a Netflix sub I'd totally ditch it as I hardly ever go in there anymore
