Disney+ Dominates As Most Download App In U.S. During Fourth Quarter

By Allyson Vannatta, Staff Writer

Disney+ was the most downloaded app in the United States, with more than 30 million downloads in the fourth quarter, according to Deadline.

Deadline reported that Sensor Tower, a research firm that specializes in mobile app data said that during the fourth quarter, Disney grossed more than $50 million from app downloads.

The data from the research firm isn’t even capturing the full picture as it only gathers numbers from Apple’s App Store and Google Play, but does not include Android stores or streaming service devices like Roku.

The more than 30 million app downloads, which was a 34% share, exceeded total downloads for Hulu and Amazon Prime video in 2019 on Apple and Google devices. Disney+ even beat out the streaming giant, Netflix, who only received an 11% share in the quarter.

Although these numbers are promising for the future of Disney+, the new streaming service hasn’t released any official numbers since November 13, the day after it hit the market. At that time, the service had 10 million subscription sign-ups.

The next time investors and media will hear from Disney will be on February 4 when they will give an update on its quarterly earnings calls.

Disney+ is now available in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The app is set to be available to Western European territories and the UK in March.
