Disney+ test period attracts 660,000 Dutch sign-ups in Oct - study

Friday 8 November 2019 | 16:26 CET | News
Some of the households that took out a free subscription during the Disney+ test period will cancel their plan as soon as they have to pay for it. Of course, the official launch will also attract new subscribers. The marketing machine for Disney+ has already come on stream with TV commercials and advertisements on the internet and in application stores. The company is rapidly expanding support, for example by making apps available for Samsung smart TVs, and with plans to greatly expand its content library after 12 November.
