Disney Streaming Service Needs 32 Million Subscribers To Break Even
To put that number in perspective, Netflix has about 50 million subscribers in the U.S., and that’s after over a decade of offering streaming services to its customers.

It’s worth pointing out though that UBS’ math is based on a potential $9 per month subscription cost for Disney streaming, and the studio has of course not yet announced how it plans to price the service. If Disney ended up going with a lower price to help gain initial subscribers, the number they would need to sign up would obviously increase considerably from 32 million, and the reverse would be true if they went higher than $9. That said, with streaming kingpin Netflix charging $9.99, it probably wouldn’t be wise for Disney to charge more.

That's a really hard sell. Even at $5 they couldn't get 32 million

Disney says its new streaming service won’t rival Netflix

Disney’s upcoming streaming service won’t try to compete directly with Netflix and Amazon, but will focus instead on quality — namely original programs from Disney’s “Star Wars,” Pixar and Marvel brands.

But Iger said that movies Disney plans to release in 2019, including “Captain Marvel,” ″Dumbo,” “Toy Story 4” and “Frozen 2,” won’t be encumbered by licensing deals and can go straight to the service soon after their theatrical releases.

Disney throwing shade at Netflix for quantity over quality. I also read that Disney isn't getting ALL Disney stuff. I think the more mature stuff is going to Hulu

Someone owns all the rights to the older star wars movies too, so they wont get those until 2024, which is hilarious.
