Disney Plus tops 10M sign-ups in first day

Disney’s new streaming service garnered more than 10 million sign-ups on its first day, despite some technical glitches slightly derailing its launch.

The Associated Press on Wednesday reported Disney Plus nabbed the subscribers to its service as viewers flocked to the platform offering a catalog of Marvel and Star Wars movies, along with all the Disney classics.

The service costs $7 a month or $70 a year after a free 7-day trial. Disney did not disclose where the subscriptions came from or if they were free or paid monthly or yearly.

The AP noted some analysts initially believed it would take Disney up to a year to accumulate 10 million subscribers.
