Disney+ levels up and spaces out

This month, Disney+ switched things up with a refreshed content slate to entice a wide array of users across the digital storefronts

Disney+’s ‘All your favorites in one place’ promotion returned to Xbox with an updated artwork featuring leading characters from its most recent array of content

On Google TV, the App utilised its entire promotional space in an impressive fashion to maximise the promotion of 5 titles with the tagline ‘Heroes. Legends. Game changers.’

Despite these major efforts, Disney+ pulled out these stops a little too late, dropping 4 places in the rankings

Keep an eye out for next month’s insights to see if they can make a comeback
