This latest news follows a report that nearly one million new subscribers a day are signing up for the Disney+ streaming service, less than two weeks after its initial rollout.
According to data from research firm Apptopia, the $6.99-a-month streaming service's mobile app has been downloaded 15.5 million times, with people actually paying to use the service as opposed to simply strap-hanging on for free initial rides.
The new streaming platform -- which features content from Disney as well as Disney-owned properties like Marvel and the "Star Wars" franchise -- pulled in $5 million through in-app purchases in its first 13 days, according to Apptopia.
Subscribers can also pay for the service through the Disney+ website, however, and those data were not captured by Apptopia.
