These were the 10 most-watched Disney+ shows during launch week
Other than the streaming and log-in hiccups that frustrated some viewers who tried out the new service earlier this week, the hotly anticipated debut of Disney’s new streamer Disney+ on Tuesday seems to have been enough of a success that it reportedly garnered millions of subscribers for Disney. And it even helped the Walt Disney Co. stock price reach its biggest single-day gain in seven months as a result.
Indeed, the new streamer has emerged as a credible threat to Netflix right out of the gate. Its monthly price starts at $6.99, and for that price you get to enjoy hundreds of movies from Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, and Disney, not to mention new series that will be exclusive to Disney+. Along those lines, after watching the first episode of the streamer’s new series The Mandalorian (with my first impressions recorded here) I found it to be a fantastic addition to the Star Wars franchise.
