The debut episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was a huge success for the Disney Plus streaming platform!

Without giving an exact number, it was announced that the first episode was the most-watched premiere episode ever on the service.

According to analysis from Samba TV which tracks 13.5 million Smart TV households, their numbers fall in line with about 1.7 million people tuning in to the premiere. A number that’s ahead of the 1.6 million people who watched WandaVision, but still short of the 1.8 million that sat for four hours to watch the Snyder Cut of Justice League on HBO Max.

During its annual shareholders meeting earlier this month, Disney announced that its streaming service had reached 100 million subscribers since its launch 16 months ago.

The success of WandaVision and The Mandalorian, as well as movie releases like Pixar’s Soul and Raya and the Last Dragon likely played a major role in boosting popularity for Disney+. There are currently no announcements for a second season, though Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has confessed that some ideas are being bounced around.
