A new day, a new streaming service: the Star + has just officially arrived in Brazil this Monday evening (30). The video platform derived from Disney + brings content for a less childish audience and has a catalog with series such as The Simpsons, this is us And modern family, plus 21st Century Fox movies and ESPN live sports. Find out prices, compatible devices and all the details.
The Star + app is almost like Disney +
In the official press release, you may see that the Star + app is virtually identical to the Disney + app; those used to streaming Mickey Mouse will hardly have difficulty adapting to the new service. The login will also be shared between the two apps.
The main difference lies in the categorization: as does Star + too live sports, there is a separate part of ESPN that allows you to check which broadcasts are currently in progress. During the games it is possible to return to the schedule, useful for reviewing the decisive moves.
Star + subscribers will be able to watch high definition content (resolution up to 4K, subject to availability for each title) and audio Dolby Atmos 7.1. The plan allows for the creation of up to seven individual profiles, with the option of up to 25 downloads for offline consumption on up to 10 different devices.
Disney notes that it is possible to activate the Parental control, useful for managers to filter inappropriate content for children and teenagers. You can set a security PIN on each profile to prevent your sibling from eavesdropping on watching the headlines on your account and messing up the whole suggestion algorithm.
Star + app: compatible devices
Star + is available for the following platforms:
|Smart TV and TV Box||Amazon Fire TV
|mobile phones and tablets||Amazon fire
iPhone and iPad
|Console||Sony PlayStation 4
Sony PlayStation 5

It is possible to download the app for Android and iOS (iPhone or iPad) to the Google Play and go App Store, respectively.
Interestingly, the Roku OS hasn’t been officially listed to support Star +, even though this platform contains the official Disney + app.
Star + prices in Brazil
Star + is sold in Brazil in two ways: individual is in the combo with Disney +. The company offers monthly and yearly packages, and those who opt for a long-term subscription will pay proportionately less for the streaming service.
Check the prices:
|monthly star +||BRL 32.90 per month|
|annual star +||BRL 329.90 per year (equivalent to BRL 27.50 per month)|
|Combo + (Star + and Disney + monthly)||BRL 45.90 per month|
|Combo + (Disney + yearly and Star + monthly)||BRL 279.90 per year plus BRL 18 per month|
These are the values available for subscription through starplus.com And comboplus.com.
A confusion: Disney doesn’t sell an annual combo with Disney + and Star +; likewise, it is not worth signing up for the Disney + annual plan along with the Star + annual plan. Therefore, the cheapest option for those wishing to keep both services is to purchase the annual Disney + and monthly Star +. (So it is.)
Those who signed up to the Disney + annual plan at launch with a promotional price will only pay the difference of R $ 18 per month. Payment can be made with Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Elo credit cards, as well as PayPal and Mercado Pago.
Discount for free market customers
In addition to direct sales, Star + will also be marketed by partners. Mercado Livre is one of them and e-commerce offers discounts based on the status of the Mercado Points loyalty program.
Depending on the customer’s category, the Disney + Star + combined subscription may also be free. Appearance:
|Market points level||Disney + and Star + combined price|
|Level 1||BRL 41.90 per month|
|Level 2||38.90 BRL per month|
|Level 3||33.50 BRL per month|
|Level 4||19.50 BRL per month|
|Level 5||BRL 13.90 per month|
The score is based on free market purchases: every R $ 3 spent equals one point, meaning you need to spend R $ 13.5 thousand to get Disney + and Star + Combo for free. It is also possible to level up using the Mercado Pago digital wallet, through car rental bookings, prepaid mobile phone credits or single ticket top-ups.
