In general, streaming services have made it possible to create niche content, that is, content produced for different, even if very specific, audiences. However, that wasn’t Disney’s main line of thinking when it decided to invest in developing its own streaming platform. Basically, Disney Plus was born to appeal to the whole family in general, from grandparents to grandchildren.

Thus, on the platform, in addition to the nostalgic productions released by the company over the years, the new and original content that emerges can be watched by everyone, collectively, without worrying about the rating. In the case of other productions owned by the company, in the United States there is Hulu, another streaming service in which Disney has a large shareholding.

On Hulu, there are even productions based on Marvel comics that wouldn’t have space on Disney Plus. This is the case of runaways, Helstrom and MODOK, due to footage deemed violent or inappropriate for all audiences. Despite this, Hulu became exclusive in the United States and Japan, mainly due to the availability of live TV channels.

Thus, in order not to distort the platform, its creators have decided not to extend its content internationally, seeking an allocation in very specific markets. In Canada, for example, Hulu does not work, as there are already mechanisms to display the country’s live channels on digital services. The same is true in Latin America.

Based on this, Star Plus emerged as a solution for the availability of general Disney content in Brazil and neighboring countries, especially broadcasters such as ABC, ESPN, Fox, FX and Freeform, in addition to other broadcast productions by third parties, who also have social rights.
