Star On Disney Plus: Everything You Need to Know

Disney Plus

When Disney+ first released, it did so with the promise of countless hours of family-friendly entertainment pulled from Walt Disney’s most notable production companies. After launching series like The Mandalorian and Wandavision and filling the library with the very best in Disney’s live-action and animated entertainment, the platform made good on its promise. However, there is still more to come with the recent launch of Star, a new brand of entertainment available directly through the Disney+ app.

Integrated into your current Disney+ app, Star offers an array of exclusive originals, local productions, documentaries, and general TV and movies crafted from the minds behind Disney General Entertainment Content. FX Productions, 20th Century Studios, Searchlight Pictures, Disney Television Studios, and many more will filter high-quality entertainment to subscribers looking to go beyond the Disney+ app.

Star is an alternate solution to Hulu, which is not available outside of the United States and Puerto Rico.

What Countries Now Have Access to Star

Upon its launch, Star is available to customers in Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand. Singapore will also receive access to Disney+ and its collection of more than 600 movies and thousands of episodes of television entertainment with the launch of Star. If you’re currently in any of these countries, you can signup for Disney+ now and watch Star’s content.

In Latin American regions, The Walt Disney Company will release STAR, a localized brand that, on top of the thousands of hours of entertainment, will also include local Latin American programming. Another version of STAR, Star+, will bring local live sporting events to Latin America in June 2021.


When Does Star Launch in Other Countries?

Disney expects to continue to release Star to global markets in Eastern Europe, South Korea, and Hong Kon later in 2021.

Since Disney currently owns Hulu and the programming on Hulu is similar to Star, there is no plan to bring the new streaming service to the United States.


Does Star on Disney Plus Cost Extra?

Star on Disney+ is included in all current Disney+ packages. However, due to the inclusion of Star, subscriptions to Disney’s streaming service have increased in price. After the launch of Star, the Disney+ subscription increased by €2 or £2 per month.
