New Disney streaming, Star+ debuts in Brazil; see what to watch


Arrives in Brazil today on Tuesday (31) the Star+, a new streaming service from Disney. With a monthly fee of R$32,90, the service’s catalog focuses on “more mature” productions than those of Disney+, including productions from the former 20th Century Fox, Hulu, and American channels ABC, FX, and Freeform. With Star+, subscribers will also have access to the live stream from ESPN sports channels.

Abroad, the Star+ brand exists, but within Disney+ itself. In Brazil, the company chose to launch the service independently, including with separate applications. Classic series that were hugely successful at the time when streamings didn’t even exist, like “The Walking Dead“, “Prison Break” e “Lost” are part of the catalog. “Modern Family“, “How I Met Your Mother” e “Simpsons” too. The full extent of the catalog, however, has not been revealed.

In this first moment of the service, some titles that would be Star+ can still be found in competing services due to existing distribution contracts. This is the case, for example, of “Modern Family”, available on Netflix, and “O Conto de Aia”, which is on Globoplay. Over time, however, they will become exclusive to the new service.

Check below some options that will be available at the launch of the platform – spoiler: there’s something for everyone!
