While usually people would be looking at box office figures to decide which movie is the most popular, this year data analysts were seeing how many people tuned into Disney Plus and HBO Max instead.

The two movies Soul and Wonder Woman 1984 were released over the festive period, resulting in a streaming wars battle which has come out with pretty close results.

That said, there is a winner – although a whopping 2.2 million households in the US checked out Wonder Woman 1984 on its first weekend on HBO Max, 2.4 million opted for Soul on Disney Plus.

Similarly, the best day for Wonder Woman 1984 was Christmas Day, which saw 986k people tune in – but Soul managed to reel in more viewers on Boxing Day with over 1 million.

WarnerMedia, the parent company of HBO Max, recently revealed that almost half of its subscribers tuned into Wonder Woman 1984 on the day of its release.

Its Q3 earnings revealed that there are 3.625 million HBO Max retail subscribers, and 25.1 million HBO Max wholesale subscribers.

Although Disney has not shared any data for its Soul movie performance, their high view count is to be expected considering it currently boasts 40 million subscribers in the US.
