Disney+ and Starz are teaming up to offer a bundle that gives subscribers in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Ecuador, Mexico, and Peru discounted access to Star+, Disney+ and STARZPLAY. The bundle will bring together Disney’s premiere streaming service alongside existing sibling streamer Star+ — which is the Latin American hub for the content housed on Hulu in the United States — and programming from the Lionsgate-owned Starz premium cable channel.
The STARZPLAY content itself though won’t live inside the Disney+ app, instead you will be able to access all three apps with a single log-in.
This partnership comes after Disney and Starz resolved their issues about naming their platforms in the Latin American market. As Starz made moves to launch its own streaming platform in Brazil, it was at odds with Disney’s similarly named Star+ service. The current bundle appears to make the situation moot.
Disney+, Star+, STARZPLAY Bundle Pricing
Disney+ es un servicio sin anuncios servicio de vídeo en streaming que ofrece series y películas exclusivas de Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic y mucho más. Disney ha revelado que su servicio de transmisión llegará el 17 de noviembre de 2020.
El precio del servicio en streaming de Disney será $5.99 / mes o $59.99 / año ($5.00 / mes).
La aplicación tendrá una calidad de 4K en streaming, descargas ilimitadas, 4 visiones simultáneas, hasta perfiles, con cientos de avatares para tu perfil personal.
El primer año se añadirán 25 películas nuevas originales, más de 10 películas, 7 500 episodios de series de televisión, 100 películas nuevas y 400 títulos del catálogo completo de Disney Vault. Además, estarán disponibles nuevos lanzamientos como Toy story 4, El rey león y Aladín; así como, clásicos como La sirenita y Cenicienta.
La compañía ha anunciado varias series y películas originales que estarán disponibles para el lanzamiento, como The Mandalorian, el spin-off de Star Wars con 8 episodios por el valor de 100 millones de dólares, High School Musical: El Musical, El mundo según Jeff Goldblum y La dama y el vagabundo.
In April, Lionsgate announced its plans to spin off its streaming platform later this summer. Roku and DIRECTV are among the top contenders looking to get in on the streaming plan. There have been no updates on the plan since the spring, so it is unknown if any sale or spin-off would impact the newly announced bundle.
Starz has been expanding its international STARZPLAY service for some time, recently bringing it to Nordic countries Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden. While its content has been available for some time, it is only a recent development that Starz is turning to its own platforms instead of relying on other aggregators such as ViaPlay in Europe.
This new bundle brings together some of the best content that streaming has to offer in a way that could be the blueprint for future streaming. As services look for a way to maintain their foothold in the market, partnering with other streamers that offer a style or genre of content different from their own could prove to be an important way to increase the value proposition for the platforms.
STARZ offers a subscription video streaming service that gives access to content on STARZ without the need of a cable subscription. With your subscription, you’ll get access to all of their current originals like Outlander, Vida, and Power.
With your subscription, you’ll also get access to their critically acclaimed catalog of previous shows, as well as past seasons of shows like “Friday Night Lights”, “The Bernie Mac Show”, “ALF”, and “Miami Vice” and “Knight Rider.”
STARZ also has new-release films from Sony Pictures, which appear on the streaming service 7-8 months after they are in theaters. Every month they also have hundreds of additional older movies from major movie studios.
You can subscribe for $8.99 a month either directly from STARZ, or through Amazon Prime Video Channels, Apple TV Channels, or Roku Premium Subscriptions.
