Disney Plus Now Has 10 Million Subscribers
Three million people downloading and trying to get on your service will cause anyone a problem.
Launch day for Disney+ was a bit rough as many people had issues accessing the new streaming service. This resulted in quite a few people not being able to access shows like The Mandalorian. However, this is all because Disney didn't anticipate just how many people would be signing up for the new streaming service.
Disney revealed just 24 hours after its initial launch that the streaming service has hit a benchmark, 10 million subscribers. And even more interesting, Disney+ is only available in US, Canada, and the Netherlands right now. Disney went on to say in a press release that they will no longer be discussing numbers for the streaming service outside of quarterly investor calls. It will be very interesting to see global numbers once the service releases in Europe in 2020. If you're interested in Disney+, there is a free one-week trial available, and Verizon is giving away one-year memberships.
Launch day for Disney+ was a rough one. Many people reported not being able to access the content on the new service. Some people even ran numerous devices at the same time in order to try and access the service's most-anticipated original series, The Mandalorian.
However, on day two, Disney+ seems to be working fine. While Disney anticipated a big opening day, they didn't anticipate what could have been a day with the most-downloaded streaming service app in history.

And many people who have already been surfing the content waves of Disney+ have checked out the first episode of The Mandalorian. In GameSpot's review, Chris E. Hayner said, "With its first episode, The Mandalorian has made a statement about what a live-action Star Wars TV show looks like. Now, with the remaining seven episodes in Season 1, it needs to make a statement about how a Star Wars plot should unfold over a longer form of storytelling."
Disney+ is available now.
