Star+: Plans and prices available
Monthly and annual Star+
Starting with the simplest, disney reserves a plan for users who only wish to subscribe to Star+ for a monthly subscription. According to the platform, users can subscribe to streaming for BRL 32.90 per month, gaining access to ESPN series, movies and sporting events.
For those who want to subscribe to Star+ in the annual plan, the value is R$329.90 in cash, with the subscriber getting a two-month discount from the monthly subscription. The amount is debited from the registered credit card.
Since Star+ is coming to Brazil as a streaming service outside of Disney+, the company has also thought about the possibility that audiences will want to subscribe to both products. For these cases, the so-called COMBO+ will be available, which consists of the unified purchase of Disney+ and Star+ for a single price of BRL 45.90 per month. For those considering subscribing to both platforms, this combo is the best option, offering a saving of BRL 14.90 compared to separate subscriptions for the two services. There is no free trial for this plan.
However, there is still no information if the COMBO+ will have an annual price with the possibility of an even greater discount in value. Until then, the only offer offered by the company is to subscribe to the package for the monthly fee. It should be noted that anyone already subscribed to Disney+ and who decides to migrate to COMBO+ can use the same access identifier. As the platform’s official page explains, you can use the same streaming credentials to access the Star+ catalog if you choose this joint subscription model.
