Disney+ got 10 million subscriptions on its first day

Unfortunately, that means you won't be able to watch The Last Jedi on Disney Plus before the ninth film of the Saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, is released in theaters on Friday, Dec. 20. This number far outweighs the projections that were set by analysts, who believed that the service would gain 10-18 million subscribers in its first year.

Disney has invested billions in its streaming service, which costs $8.99 a month or $89.99 a year (for Australian users) after a 7-day free trial.

This figure is significantly higher than the initial expectations of Disney.

So you'll just have to take the word of subscribers that it's so worth signing up for.

Verizon likely even helped bring in Disney's huge numbers.

Thankfully, Disney is offering a discount for existing ad-free Hulu subscribers, as reported by Lifehacker.

Although Disney+ will be entering new countries in the next weeks, it will not provide subscriber updates about Disney+ outside of its quarterly earnings call. "If you're a subscriber, you can download it and put it on a device, and it will stay on the device as long as you continue to subscribe", Iger said.

Alternately, you can choose a bundle that comes with Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ for $12.99 per month. You can use it to watch movies and TV shows from Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, Fox and, of course, Disney itself.

The 1948 film "Melody Time" came under scrutiny in the late 1990s when Disney digitally removed a cigarette from Pecos Bill's mouth for the DVD release. Plus, all the 30 seasons of The Simpsons are included. A few of the best National Geographic Channel shows are also available.

Disney agrees a landscape-altering deal to acquire a host of 21st Century Fox's entertainment properties, including its family of 22 U.S. regional sports networks (RSNs), for a reported US$52.4 billion. A reboot of Lizzie McGuire is also in the works, with Hilary Duff's celebrated comeback as the main character.

However, some of those who tuned into the service were less than impressed with the warning, and felt that Disney hadn't done enough to confront and address the issue.

Netflix passed the 10-million-subscriber mark in 2009, two years after the company introduced streaming video and more than a decade after it was founded.
