Disney+ and Star: Star on Disney+ full guide
Star on Disney+ offers films and TV shows aimed at adults - and comes with new parental controls and a price rise.
Disney+ has mounted its latest challenge to the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime by launching Star, which was added to the platform on 23 February, 2021.
Star features big-name shows and movies aimed at more mature audiences, such as Big Sky, Desperate Housewives, 24, Love, Victor, alongside existing child-friendly shows and films like The Mandalorian and Soul.
How does Star work?
Star is like a separate channel on the platform, alongside Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic.
Disney has launched new parental controls, allowing adult viewers to curb access to specific shows and films, based on content ratings. Users can add a PIN to lock profiles with access to mature content.
How much does Star cost?
The extra content sees Disney+ subscribers paying more for the package; the total cost in the UK is £7.99 per month, or £79.90 if you pay for a year upfront. This is compared to the previous fee of £5.99 per month and £59.99 per year.
But if you are already paying £5.99 a month for Disney+ membership, you’ll stay at that rate for 6 months after the launch. If you paid £59.99 for a year in advance, you won’t get the price increase until your renewal is due.
However, if you joined Disney+ after 23 February, 2021, you’ll have to pay the new price.
What content is on Star?
Disney has shared a lovely long list of the titles that are available on Star.
