“While competitors Netflix and Hulu predate our available data, we can see that, in comparison, Disney rival HBO Now grossed $23.7 million (roughly Rs. 167.9 crores) during its first 60 days-even when launching alongside a new season of its top program, Game of Thrones-and Showtime grossed $1.2 million (roughly Rs. 8.5 crores),” the report added.
In terms of downloads, Disney+’s second month garnered 13.5 million, or 33 percent, of the 40.9 million installs it’s seen since launch. Comparatively, 29 percent of HBO downloads during its first 60 days came from its second month.
While its competitors launched within the United States only, Disney+ debuted, and is currently available, in five countries: the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the Netherlands.
It may may arrive in India in the second half of 2020, post the Indian Premier League (IPL) tournament. As per a report, there will be no separate app for Disney Plus as the whole catalogue will be available on Hotstar.
