ESPN+ subscriber numbers in the U.S. 2018-2019

The Walt Disney Company announced that its sports streaming service ESPN+ had 6.6 million U.S. subscribers at the end of 2019, and has previously said that it expects the service to amass between eight and 12 million paying customers by the end of 2024. This figure previously seemed ambitious, especially given the estimates provided by other industry experts. Morgan Stanley predicted that ESPN+ would have around 6.7 million subscribers by 2022. MoffettNathanson were even more skeptical, and anticipated that ESPN+ would have a user base of just five million by 2023. However, the figure recorded by Disney in December 2019 surpassed both estimates well in advance, and providing this growth continues, ESPN+ will certainly be on track for 12 million subscribers in the next few years.
