Netflix and Disney+ are the two most popular streaming services with more subscribers than other services such as Hulu or Apple TV+. Hulu boasts 43.8 million subscribers, while Apple TV+ has never had a comparable number of subscribers.

Apple TV+ and Disney+ were launched simultaneously, but Disney+ has experienced much faster growth due to its back catalogue of Disney, Marvel and Star Wars content along with new shows like "The Mandalorian," WandaVision," and "Loki."

Apple CEO Tim Cook stated that Apple TV+ was doing "very well" in April and that Apple is "really happy" with where Apple TV+ stands.
