Disney + and Netflix have become the most popular streaming platforms worldwide, earning millions of subscribers each month for their original content.
Netflix arrived in Mexico in September 2011 and since then it has become the favorite streaming platform for Mexicans.
Disney + arrived in Mexico on November 17 and as expected, thousands of Mexican families joined the streaming service, especially those with young children, which would have meant quite significant competition for Netflix.
Subscribers and earnings
Netflix: During the pandemic Netflix achieved 2.2 million subscriptions, increasing to 192 million users worldwide, with approximate earnings of $ 20,160,000 USD
Disney +: The Walt Disney Company announced that its Disney + platform has nearly 74 million subscribers worldwide in its last quarter of 2020. Although fourth-quarter revenue was over $ 14.7 million, its revenue per subscriber are lower than those of Netflix, since Disney + obtains an average per user of approximately $ 4.62 USD, while Netflix bills $ 10.80 USD.
Competition in streaming platforms
Despite the fact that Disney + and Netflix are positioned as the current streaming leaders, platforms maintain a competition with these two companies.
