Do not miss it: Subscribe here to Disney Plus
Star Plus, also known as Star +, will be an entertainment streaming service that will include series, movies and live sports. It will arrive this August 31, with a little delay since it had originally been announced for June during the meeting known as Investor’s Day where the titles of the new films and series that Disney will produce in the future were also announced, either for your platform or to hit theaters around the world. Well, now he will do it on the last day of August according to the official press release, and he also shared the news through his social networks.
The content that can be enjoyed by subscribers of the new service includes those productions belonging to The Walt Disney Company, including Disney Television Studios, FX, 20th Century Studios, original National Geographic productions and those originals of the platform that will be renamed Star Original Productions. It is not specified whether, like the US and European versions of the platform, the content found on Hulu will be added, but it is very possible that it will soon, although it will not be now, probably due to licensing issues, since for example The Handmaid’s Tale – 100%, which is found on Hulu in other territories, can be seen here thanks to Paramount Plus.
Perhaps the main novelty of Star Plus is that it will have live sports. In Latin America this has not been seen on any of these new platforms, with the exception of HBO, which has live programming. Paramount Plus, for example, has this option in the United States, while on this side of the world it is like any other video-on-demand service. The possibility of having sports on the same platform is something that will make users consider accessing this service.
