The news comes after Disney revealed they had plans to more than double the number of countries to 160 by its fiscal year 2023. The company also plans on expanding its direct-to-customer (D2C) business globally and is at the same time creating a new International Content and Operations group which will aid in the expansion.
Disney also announced they had a total of 179 million subscriptions across Hulu, Disney+ and ESPN+. It launched in 2019 and has been a top competitor among Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and other streaming platforms.
