And it owes much of that to its unique catalog and pricing structure. Looking at the trends, it’s fair to say that it’ll boss SVOD services by 2026.”

Disney+’s soaring subscription base

Two years into its launch, Disney+ has witnessed an uptick in its subscription base. Today it serves 53 nations across the Americas, Europe, and APAC regions. It’s also eyeing operations in over 40 new markets by September 2022. These will cover Africa, Europe, and the Middle East.

Moreover, the platform has already surpassed its target of 60-90M subscribers by 2024. This is an exceptional feat considering that Netflix, the market leader, took a decade to raise those numbers.
