Disney+ is quickly closing the gap with Netflix

Netflix is ​​still the largest streaming service in the world. However, you should now watch out for Disney+ which is fast approaching.

Almost all of us have a Netflix account at home. However, more and more people are taking Disney+. The service, of course, contains the Star Wars and Marvel series and movies, but it comes with a lot of content in the form of Star. Starting in September, we will also watch a documentary series on Feyenoord and a number of European originals.

Disney + vs. Netflix

This is how Disney + opens the attack on Netflix, which is still the leader in streaming. Netflix totals 209 million paid members, according to reports Alpha search. 74 million of them are from the United States. At Disney+, the counter is 116 million subscribers after more than a year. If you add other streaming services from The House of Mouse like Hula and ESPN, they come to 174 million.

With this 116 million figure, Disney+ is beyond expectations. Analysts believe the company will only have 112.8 million members. In the past three months, the number of new subscribers has increased by 12.4 million. That’s a big difference with Netflix, which only gained 4 million new members in the same period. Expectations are that 3.5 million new members will join this quarter.

It will change quickly

According to analyst Mark Zgotovic, who was a guest on the TV channel CNBC Netflix currently has a maximum of 90 million subscriptions. He says that will change quickly. By the end of the year, Disney+ will have up to 20 million of that number. If it continues like this, Disney+ will overtake Netflix in 5 years.

The big advantage of Disney is that it naturally has a number of well-known major franchises. Something Netflix is ​​also trying to build, but it doesn’t seem to be going that easy. Still searching for her own Game of Thrones and superhero universe. However, there appears to be another major contender: HBO Max. With Warner Bros. Titles in her portfolio, Game of Thrones and Harry Potter could take a hit. The service is currently still active in the US, but also wishes to occupy Europe.
