Disney+ Downloaded Over Three Million Times On Launch Day
Disney+ finally launched yesterday morning and even though reports of technical difficulties, the streaming service racked up a huge amount of downloads in its first twenty-four hours.
The Wrap reports that the app was downloaded 3.2 million times, with 89% of those consumers coming from the United States. Globally, 9% of downloads came from Canada and 2% from the Netherlands. The site also stated users have watched a total of 1.3 million hours of content since the service went live.
Disney is also reporting that over 10 million people have signed up for the streaming service. The company had estimated it would launch with about 8 million but has exceeded those numbers.
Other markets such as the U.K. are expected to begin streaming Disney+ in 2020. A seven-day free trial is being offered to new customers, while Verizon is offering an entire year free to those who have their Unlimited or FIOS services.
