While the coronavirus has had a major negative impact on The Walt Disney Company, there is one bright spot: Disney+.
In the Q2 earnings call on Tuesday, the company reported that the streaming service reached 54.5 million paid subscribers.
CNBC put together a graph to show how it compares to it’s top competitor, Netflix’s growth:
Disney’s Hulu had 32.1 million total subscribers by March 28, up 27% year-over-year.
Disney’s ESPN suffered from the loss of live sports content as major sports leagues postponed their seasons. Advertising revenue was down about 8% in the quarter.
However, the NFL draft was the most-watched ever, reaching more than 55 million viewers over three days.
