Disney Plus reached over ten million subscribers in one day. Considering that other channel subscriptions such as HBO took over three years to reach just five million, Disney shows continue to show their superiority over all other shows. While some of the television shows nowadays are more for older teens to adults, Disney Plus contains movies, shows, and episodes that appeals to ages of all ranges.
The toddlers and babies enjoy the entertainment provided by Disney too, so the parents purchase the subscription for their children to watch.
