Disney is finally launching their long-awaited streaming service, Disney+, in November and promises tons of original content from fan favorites like Marvel and Star Wars. Many people have already signed up for the service, and according to a recent report from The Hollywood Reporter, that number will only continue to grow. Currently, Disney+ is expected to reach 82 million subscribers by 2024.
“Netflix’s dominance of global SVOD is falling, although the company will add 79 million subs between 2018 and 2024 to take its total to 219 million," Digital TV Research reports. “This comes despite the onslaught from new global players.”
The firm projects Amazon Prime will rank second in 2024 with 127 million subscribers, followed by Apple with 13 million. However, the report suggests Disney+ will rank ahead of Amazon in terms of SVOD revenue.
“Netflix’s revenue will more than double from $15 billion in 2018 to $35 billion in 2024 despite subscriptions only climbing by 57 percent, predicts Digital TV Research. It sees Disney+ generating $7.4 billion in revenue by 2024, ahead of Amazon’s estimated $6.0 billion,” The Hollywood Reporter writes.
