Find out all about the new streaming service!
This week another streaming service arrived in Brazil. This time it’s about the Star+, part of the conglomerate of Disney, which is aimed at a more adult audience and features movies, series, animations and sports channels.
Confused about what the platform looks like, what the costs are, and what’s available on Star+? Come with me and I’ll explain everything.
What is Star+?
As we know, the Disney+ is a platform that focuses on content for the whole family, maintaining a rating that excludes violent movies, horror productions or adult content. It was thinking about this that the star, a channel that has what escapes the Disney+ filter, but whose rights are still in the hands of Disney — like the movies from 20th Century Fox and some contents of Hulu for example – projects from other producers or original content created specifically for the platform.
Why is Star+ not within Disney+?
In many countries this happens and star appears as a streaming service channel, as is the case of Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and Discovery Geographic. In Brazil and throughout Latin America, however, this option was transformed into another streaming platform. As a result, there are some options for subscribers who can choose to have only one of the platforms, or subscribe to both in a combo, taking advantage of a discount.
Is Star+ the same as Disney+?
Even though they are from the same company, in Brazil Star+ is a streaming service independent of Disney+. In it you’ll find content that is not on Disney+, with a range of titles ranging from series, movies, original programs to sports championships.
It is possible, however, to take advantage of the Disney+ subscription and close a combo that guarantees a discount on the Star+ subscription — or subscribe to both services together and still enjoy the benefit.
