Disney has confirmed plans to bring an entirely new streaming service within its existing Disney+ app. Dubbed Star, the new option will be home to more “mature” content commissioned by Walt Disney, including shows and movies acquired when it bought 20th Century Studios back in March 2019.
Alongside 20th Century Studios, Star was also included as part of the acquisition of 21st Century Fox, which was previously owned by Rupert Murdoch. Headquartered in Mumbai, Star boasts a network of 60 channels in eight languages and currently reaches roughly nine out of 10 cable and satellite TV homes across India. Disney now plans to expose millions more to the brand by making it the face of all films and shows designed for older audiences on its hugely-successful Disney+ streaming service.
