Everything You Need to Know About Star, the New Disney Plus Streaming Service



On February 23, Star will make its debut in the Disney Plus catalog in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Canada and Singapore. The service is also headed to Latin America, but not until June 2021.

Boasting more than 40 series and 250 movies aimed at an adult audience, Star is set to double the platform’s existing catalog made up of the full Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar and National Geographic universes. It will feature some of TV’s greatest hits, such as Lost, The X Files and The Walking Dead, and beloved film franchises like Alien and Die Hard.

With its launch only days away, Disney has revealed all the details about Star’s integration into its platform, how to access it, and the content that subscribers will enjoy. Keep reading for all the info!

What’s Star?

Star is Disney Plus’ new entertainment hub where you can watch blockbusters from Disney Television Studios, FOX, 20th Century Studios, 20th Television, ABC and FX, among others. Unlike the current Disney+ catalog, Star’s content moves away from the platform’s strictly family-oriented content to focus on series and films intended for a more adult audience.

How can I access Star?

To access all the content on Star, you need to be a Disney+ subscriber. The platform offers two types of subscriptions, a monthly one for €6.99 per month and an annual one for €69.99 per year. But those prices will go up on February 23 to €8.99 per month or €89.99 per year for new subscribers. Fortunately, anyone who subscribes before that date won’t see their bill increase from €6.99 or €69.99 until after August 22.

What can I watch on Star?

Star will feature a lineup of 40 hit shows and more than 250 popular movies, along with original productions created for the platform. Since Star’s content is aimed at an adult audience, the platform will also introduce parental controls on February 23 to keep kids from accessing its content.
