Disney Plus’ new Star Channel will transform the streaming service next month 

Next month, Disney will be getting a massive upgrade, adding to the service a new channel called “Star”, which will act as the service’s general entertainment brand for content from places like  20th Century Studios, Searchlight Pictures, FX, ABC and others. 

Disney subscribers in the US will not get access to this add-on, but subscribers in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland and most of Europe will receive access to Star on February 23rd. In the UK and Ireland, Stars will give Disnay subscribers access to 75 TV series’, more than 270 movies and four exclusive “Star Originals”, making the release of Stars Disney’s largest content drop to date. 

Star will be a free add-on for Disney subscribers, and it will give grant users access to shows like Gery’s Anatomy, 24, The X-Files, Firefly and Family Guy. With this add-on, Disney will also receive new parental controls, which will allow subscribers to gate off access to mature content from those without a PIN code. 

The launch of Star will make Disney a greater competitor to Netflix and Amazon Prime by making the service the home of a much larger and varied body of content. In the UK, Star will arrive on Disney on February 23rd.
