On the day Disney+ launched, more than 10 million subscribers signed up thanks to its affordable price and its huge content throughout the Disney library. Old classics, as well as Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and even Fox content like The Simpsons are part of their entertainment catalog.

The service has been made available for users in the United States, Canada, and the Netherlands, with Australia, New Zealand and Puerto Rico following soon as well. Other significant markets like the UK, France, Spain, Italy, Germany and Ireland will have to wait until the end of March 2020 to enjoy the new streaming platform.

Since one of Disney’s objectives is to compete against industry-giant Netflix, the service will focus on creating high quality shows in hopes to create a following on some of their originals. The most viewed show as of now is ‘The Mandalorian’, focusing on a bounty hunter after the event of Star Wars’ Return of the Jedi. Other hits include the spinoff show ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’, and documentary series ‘The World According to Jeff Goldblum’ where the actor explores the world as part of National Geographic partnership with Disney.

Moving forward, it will be amusing to see what changes and additions Disney+ will implement in the coming year, as it prepares to expand to the rest of the world and to take the streaming industry’s crown. 2020 already sounds Disney-citing!
