Disney+ ends 2020 with 95 million subscribers

Friday 12 February 2021 | 09:25 CET | News
Disney said revenue growth for its fiscal first quarter to 2 January remained strong at its Direct-to-Consumer segment, with revenues soaring 73 percent year-on-year to USD 3.50 billion. The operating loss more than halved to USD 466 million from a loss of 1.11 billion, helped by improved results at Hulu, and to a lesser extent, at Disney+ and ESPN+. Revenues at domestic channels went up 1 percent to USD 6.1 billion while at international channels, they increased 6 percent to USD 1.6 billion.
