Disney+ crosses 150 million subscribers

As the months and years go by, Disney+ continues to grow at an incredible rate. The Disney-owned streaming service was expected to add about 10 million new subscribers during the third fiscal quarter, but Disney+ went far beyond those goals. Ahead of Wednesday’s quarterly earnings call, Disney announced that Disney+ had added 14.4 million subscribers last quarter, allowing the service to pass a major subscriber milestone.

With this new batch of signups, Disney+ has now passed 150 million subscribers, bringing the service’s total worldwide number to 152.1 million. Growth in the third quarter nearly doubled from the second quarter, when Disney+ added 7.9 million subscribers.

There are some big changes coming to Disney+ in the near future, and it’ll be interesting to see how those plans affect the streamer’s continued growth. On Wednesday, Disney+ announced that it will officially add its ad-supported tier in December. Unfortunately, that new tier will cost the same as the current, ad-free version of Disney+, as the standard version of the streamer continues to increase in price.

Starting in December, the ad-supported tier of Disney+ will launch and cost $7.99 per month. That version of the streaming service will not have an annual option. The standard, ad-free version of Disney+ is increasing at $3 per month. Disney+ is priced going up to $10.99 for a monthly subscription and $109.99 for an annual subscription. That annual subscription price is increasing by $40 each year.

With our new ad-supported Disney+ offering and an expanded lineup of plans across our entire streaming portfolio, Karim Daniel, president of Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution, said in a statement. “We will provide as many consumer options as possible at a variety of price points to meet the diverse needs of our audience and appeal to a wider audience.”
