Disney+ is launching a new section of its streaming platform called Star, which will double the amount of content available to subscribers. Bringing together shows from Hulu, FX and 20th Century Television, this will see the first adult-aimed content on the platform.
The launch will see Disney getting a bit more grown-up, as Star brings with it a whole collection of adult-friendly content.
This includes what are billed as ‘original series’ like Big Sky and Love, Victor, which will be having their UK premiere on Disney+.
There are also a lot of older shows like Lost, The X-Files and Prison Break which will also be made available.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
