On back of Disney+ service launched in 2019, company predicted to be No 1 by 2024

The Walt Disney Company announced earlier this month that its flagship Disney+ platform, launched in late 2019, had passed 100 million global subscribers – a feat that took its arch-rival, Netflix, a decade to achieve.
