Earlier this May, Disney Plus surpassed 50 million subscribers, far surpassing the 10 million subscribers on its first day. With slightly more subscriptions than Hulu, but far less than Netflix, Disney Plus is becoming a real contender in the streaming service market.
Recently, a new challenger arrived in the form of HBO Max, which boasts more than 10,000 hours of content at-launch. With a larger and more diverse library, HBO Max could very well give Disney Plus and Netflix a run for their money. Only time will tell which service will stand out as the true champion.
If Disney Plus hopes to step up its game against its competitors, it will need to roll out more content to make its subscription worth the monthly fee. So far, the platform has slated original movies and upcoming projects for Marvel and Star Wars. But if the service hopes to compete against the big boys, it'll need to think big with its programming.
Here are a few suggestions for original concepts that Disney Plus can create to help bring it up to par with its competitors.
