Disney+ has started a new concept in its platform called Disney+ Star. The new concept has been very popular in the UK and is now celebrating its first year. Much new content is being added and most of them also are available on Netflix.
When it comes to Netflix, the series and movies are available but when will they fully leave Netflix and be added especially on Disney+ Star? The channel is also aiming to have more adult streamers. Extra content on the star channel is not free. The monthly cost of the service will have to increase by 33%. Subscribers of the star channel will now pay £7.99 a month, compared with the current price being £5.99.
