The Disney+ app was downloaded 40.9 million times from Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) App Store and Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Play, CNET reported, citing a report from mobile analytics firm Sensor Tower.

Shares of Disney rose 1.9% in afternoon trading. That added more than 18 points to the Dow’s spike of more than 130, led by JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM), after its solid earnings report, Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) and Boeing (NYSE:BA).
