Hello

Here’s your Last Week in Digital Media and all of the news you may have missed:

GENERAL

QUARTERLY RESULTS

  • Disney’s Q1 2021 earnings had some updates on Disney’s streaming services (PDF link). Hulu has 39.4MM subscribers and Disney+ 94.9MM. This means Disney+ has already exceeded its 4-year goal and now has a target of 230 million and 260 million total paid subscribers by the end of the fiscal year 2024.
  • the Q4 2020 results of twitter (PDF link) saw monetizable Daily Active Users (mDAUs) increase by 5MM (192MM average), with user growth in both the US and internationally.

REGULATORY

PRIVACY, TRUST, and SAFETY

Have a great week.

PS. As it’s a holiday weekend in the US, multiple distractions! The first, a fun tool that lets you create your own Bayeux Tapestry so you can relive great historic moments in brand safety or Pokemon. The next is Epic Game’s MetaHuman Creator, which will (soon) let people create digital humans (this is wow-inducing software). The final and more productive distraction is Abbreviations.com. The media industry is worse than most at TLAs, but this website can help. It also lets you filter by industry/category, which can be helpful in client meetings. That said, you should never be afraid to ask for clarification. TTFN!
