Disney’s new streaming service Disney+ has managed to snag 10 million subscribers in its first day of service.

The streaming platform offers hundreds of titles ranging from the Star Wars series, to Marvel movies, to dozens of classic animated films. The service also offers numerous television shows popular among the key millennial demographic, including Boy Meets World and Lizzie McGuire.

Analysts previously estimated that Disney+ would see only 8 million subscribers by the end of the year. The service experienced widespread technical outages on its launch day, which company officials attributed to unexpected demand.
