Disney+ unveils Star channel for mature audiences
With 20th Century Studios under their wing, Disney is finally expanding their streaming platform Disney+ with more mature content from the banner under a new tile known as Star that will include everything from Family Guy to Atlanta, Logan, Kingsman, and more!
In Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and several other markets, Star will be fully integrated into Disney+ and will be accessible as the sixth brand tile in the app.

As announced during today’s Investors presentation, all audiences have to do will be to log in to the streaming platform and head to the options and opt into the tile and set a password that will ensure younger viewers can avoid watching such programming accidentally.
In addition, Star+ will launch as a separate streaming platform in Latin America offering general entertainment TV shows, movies, local originals, and live sports from ESPN including soccer leagues, grand slam tennis, and more in June 2021.
The new Star tile is set to launch on Disney+ free of charge in most major markets on February 23, 2021, with debuts in Japan and South Korea later in the year.
