But now, for the first time, the Disney surpassed Netflix in terms of subscribers worldwide, with 221.1 million at the end of June, compared to Netflix’s 220.7 million in the same month.

The subscription for ad-free viewing will increase by 38% to $10.99 in December, when it starts offering a new option that will also include ads at the current price. To attract new subscribers, Disney will offer a new subscription option with ads starting December 8, which will cost the same as the current ad-free version ($7.99 per month). Subscription prices for Hulu (which is majority owned by Walt Disney Co) will also increase by one to two dollars a month in December.
