Through an official statement, Disney + revealed that it closed the third quarter of 2020 with exactly 73.7 million subscribers, all in just one year.
The numbers add up to 13.2 million new subscriptions since the last update, announced in August.
As more users are hiring the service due to the second season premiere of “The Mandalorian,” the next platform update is expected to hit around 90 million subscriptions.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Simon Murray, a renowned digital TV analyst, said Disney + could surpass 100 million subscribers in the first months of 2021.
In addition, the platform is expected to take the place of Netflix with the highest return to the number of users by the end of 2025.
Indeed, the streaming service is not yet available in all countries, which should change soon with the debut in Latin America, scheduled for November 17.
At the start of 2025, it is estimated that Disney + numbers could reach around 202 million, which is nothing new, given the popularity of the platform.
At the start of Q2 2020, Netflix reported that its user count had reached 183 million … But the company has been in the market for over 20 years. How long will it take Disney + to get there?
Depending on your expansion campaign, the platform may not take long to become the streaming giant.
By the end of 2020, Disney + is also expected to reach other territories, such as Japan and Western Europe, which will increase the number of subscribers exponentially.
Still, Murray predicts that Netflix will rack up 258 million subscribers by early 2025, but Disney + has the potential to surpass the mark by the end of this year.

It should be noted that the president of Disney in Latin America, Diego Lerner, confirmed in an interview with Veja that the studio will invest in films and series developed by local actors and directors, depending on each country, including Brazil.
“Brazil is one of the 10 most important markets in the world for Disney. We will have content directed by Brazilian actors and directors. There will be investments in series and films. Streaming allows us to have this diversification. It’s a richer experience than television […] In fact, anything on display at Disney + from the rest of the world will also be available in Brazil. Said the executive.
