Disney+ subscriber growth slows to 2.1 mln in Sept quarter

Thursday 11 November 2021 | 08:52 CET | News
Disney+ saw a significant slowdown in subscriber growth in the three months to September, adding just 2.1 million new customers compared to over 12 million in the preceding quarter. Walt Disney Company reported 118.1 million paid subscribers for the streaming service at the end of its fiscal fourth quarter, up from 116.0 million three months earlier and 60 percent growth year-on-year. ARPU at Disney+ fell 9 percent year-on-year to USD 4.12 due to a greater share of subscribers for the lower-priced Hotstar service in Asia.
