News culture Disney + is increasing the price and adding an adult section
From February 2021, the Disney + subscription will cost two dollars more. For good reason, providing an entirely new category of adult content called “Star” is not optional.
The monthly price of Disney + will soon drop from 6.99 dollars to 8.99 dollars. An announcement clarified during the giant’s investor day and justified by the arrival of a new STAR section, as well as adult content that sometimes requires a password to access. The change will take effect in Europe on February 23, 2021. However, note a small subtlety
Intended for a “mature” audience, STAR is described in response to Hulu, a popular US VoD service that coexists with the platform. The category will join Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and National Geographic. In particular, it will offer films and TV series from ABC, FX, Freeform, Searchlight and 20th Century Studios, as well as localized content for the various countries in which it operates, in Europe, Canada and New Zealand. Among these productions you can find for example Atlanta
The news comes as Disney announces that it has more than 137 million subscribers on its various streaming platforms, including 86.8 million on Disney +. This new strategy should then expand the target group.
