Disney+ Star is bringing us adult-friendly TV shows such as The X-Files, Atlanta, Big Sky and more

Star is a new section of Disney Plus that is heading our way on 23rd February 2021 for Disney+ subscribers in Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. It features lots of adult-friendly TV shows and movies to subscribers of the service. It is basically doubling the amount of content on the streaming service.

In Latin America, Star, which is launching in June 2021, will be added as a stand-alone app due to also having live sports.

The Star brand will serve as home to thousands of hours of television and movies from Disney’s creative studios, including Disney Television Studios, FX, 20th Century Studios, 20th Television, and more, enhanced by the addition of local programming from the regions where available.

Star will launch in Europe and several other international markets on February 23, 2021 as a fully integrated part of Disney+, with its own branded tile and a new collection of renowned general entertainment series, movies, documentaries and more that will double the content catalog available to Disney+ subscribers. Disney+ will be updated globally to offer enhanced parental controls enabling the family-friendly experience parents expect, including the ability to set limits on access to content for specific profiles based on content ratings and the ability to add a PIN to lock profiles with access to mature content.

The launch line-up includes shows like 24, Lost, Desperate Housewives, Atlanta, How I Met Your Mother, The X-Files, Prison Break and Black-ish. Star Originals will also be included and that initially brings crime thriller series Big Sky and high school drama Love, Victor to the UK. More films and shows will be added.

However, new content means a new price. In the UK it will increase to £7.99 per month or £79.90 per year from 23rd February (as explained by this help page) – existing subscribers will keep the current £5.99 monthly/£59.99 annual rate until 23rd August 2021, according to Disney.
