HAMILTON Drives Up Disney Plus Downloads During Premiere Weekend

Hamilton caused a spike in downloads for the Disney Plus app over its premiere weekend.

From Friday through Sunday, the Disney Plus app was downloaded 752,451 times globally, and 458,796 times in the U.S., Variety reports.

In the U.S., the total Disney Plus downloads were 74% higher than the average of the four weekends in June 2020. Worldwide, app downloads were 46.6% higher this past weekend than the average of the four prior Friday-Sunday totals.

In the U.S., Disney Plus costs $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year. There is typically a seven-day free trial period offered, but the company did away with that option prior to Hamilton's release.
