Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From 9to5mac.com: “Apple TV+ subscribers: More than Hulu and (for now) Disney+ - 9to5Mac”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Apple has been pretty coy about the number of Apple TV+ subscribers, but an analytics company cited by the Wall Street Journal puts the number for the last quarter of 2019 at 33.6 million.

Apple hasn’t given much away, saying only that the company was ‘thrilled’ with takeup. The Hollywood Reporter and Variety said there were “millions” of viewers in the first three days, but that’s as much as we’ve heard so far.

However, the Wall Street Journal carries a report that estimates 33.6 million subscribers, against 31.8 million for Hulu and 23.2 million for Disney+.

Of course, rivals would be quick to point out that the vast majority of Apple TV+ subscribers will be on the one-year free trial that comes with the purchase of any iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, or Mac purchased after September 10, 2019. It remains to be seen how many of them will continue their subscriptions once that free trial expires.

Disney+ also launched halfway through the quarter, so its numbers will rocket this quarter — and again in Q2 when the service goes live in Europe.
