Frequently asked questions about Disney+

General info

Disney+ is the streaming home for Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and now, brand new Star. Available on most internet-connected devices, Disney+ offers hundreds of hours of incredible TV series, movies, documentaries and exclusive originals. From the biggest new releases to timeless classics, there’s something for everyone.

Star is a new general entertainment content brand from The Walt Disney Company to be included in the Disney+ streaming service in selected markets. The Star brand will serve as home to thousands of hours of television and movies from The Walt Disney Company’s creative studios, including Disney Television Studios, FX, 20th Century Studios, 20th Television and more, enhanced by the addition of local programming from the regions.

Star is not a separate subscription. Star is a new content brand being added to the existing Disney+ service in selected markets.

To make sure Disney+ remains suitable for audiences of all ages and the experience parents expect, new parental controls launching on 23 February will include the ability to restrict access to content for specific profiles based on content age ratings and the ability to add a PIN to lock profiles with access to mature content.
