Happy Friday, and Happy Holidays !!! 🎅🎄
Our top pick the week is Disney Plus & Apple TV's first clash in the streaming wars. The early indicators show Disney has dominated the opening battle. Apple Plus has by no means had a poor start. 1.1 million subscribers in its first week is impressive for a new service. However, an estimated 24 million Disney Plus accounts were established in its first 30 days, and its flagship series The Mandalorian is currently the most popular TV series in the US, with the most sought after merchandise.
2020 looks to be shaping up to be very exciting indeed!
We thank you for subscribing to Rerun this year, and following the latest industry developments along with us.
