Disney Plus launches new streaming platform aimed at adult viewers

Feb 24 2021, 6:47 am

Disney Plus has launched a massive expansion streaming platform aimed at adult viewers.

Disney’s new platform, Star, launched on Tuesday across Canada and includes an impressive library of drama, horror, thrillers, and comedies.

“The Star brand serves as home to thousands of hours of movies and shows from Disney General Entertainment Content, including Disney Television Studios (ABC Signature and 20th Television), FX Productions, 20th Century Studios, Searchlight Pictures, and more,” says Walt Disney Studios Canada Publicity, in an email shared with Daily Hive.

Star offers a range of “high-quality movies and series for older teens and adults,” says the company — fueled by the acquisition of 21st Century Fox.

Fan-favourite series include Grey’s Anatomy, 24, The X-Files, Lost, and Family Guy. 

The inclusion of Star will see the Disney Plus library double in Canada, with more than 800 titles expected to be added by the end of 2021. Over 35 series are set to premiere exclusively on the platform by the end of the year, labelled as Star Originals.

The launch of Star isn’t all good news, however. Monthly rates have increased from $8.99 to $11.99 for Canadian subscription users, coinciding with the launch of Star.

Star platform hopefuls need to have a Disney Plus subscription to be able to watch the new branch’s series and movies.

“Disney+ has touched the lives of nearly a hundred million people around the globe by providing a home for exceptional storytelling from the beloved brands of Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic, and today’s launch of the Star-branded international general entertainment offering marks an exciting expansion for the service,” said Rebecca Campbell, Chairman, International Operations and Direct-to-Consumer, The Walt Disney Company.

“With the addition of Star, we’re building even more value for consumers by adding an incredible array of high-quality movies and series for families, older teens, and adults.”

Here is the full content list available for Disney Plus Star users across Canada. Buckle in, there’s a lot to watch here.
