Star+: what is it?

As noted above, Star+ is a new Disney streaming service, which operates as a complement to Disney+ (android | iOS | the Web). It was launched exclusively in Latin American countries and is aimed more at a more “adult” audience.

In addition to exclusive titles, Disney has also invested in the production of content focused on Latin audiences, which is why 66 productions made in Brazil and neighboring countries will be launched. Among them, “O Rei da TV”, which will tell the biography of Silvio Santos and “Santa Evita”, which will tell the story of the Argentine first lady.

The service operates very similarly to Disney+, with the biggest difference being its catalog and sports section. All subscribers will have access to high definition content (4K where available) and Dolby Atmos 7.1 audio. It’s still possible to use the account on 10 different devices, create up to seven individual profiles, and make 25 downloads to watch offline.
