Disney+, STARZ Launch Unique Bundling Option in Latin America
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+ è una nuova piattaforma di video in streaming senza annunci pubblicitari che offre serie TV e film esclusivi targati Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic e molto altro. La Disney ha annunciato che il suo servizio streaming debutterà nel Regno Unito il 24 marzo 2020.
Il suo costo sarà di € 8.99 / mese o € 89.99 / anno (€ 7.50 / mese).
L’app supporta lo streaming in 4K, download illimitati, streaming in simultanea su 4 dispositivi e fino a 7 profili con centinaia di avatar per personalizzarli.
L’abbonamento per il primo anno comprende 25 nuove serie e oltre 10 film originali, 7.500 vecchi episodi, 100 film recenti e 400 titoli disponibili in catalogo, inclusa l’intera produzione Disney. Sulla piattaforma saranno disponibili nuove uscite come “Toy Story 4”, “Il re leone” e “Aladdin”, ma anche classici come “La sirenetta” e “Cenerentola”.
La società ha annunciato diverse serie TV e film originali che saranno disponibili al lancio, compresi gli 8 episodi dello spin-off di Star Wars “The Mandalorian”, costato 100 milioni di dollari, “High School Musical: The Musical: La serie”, “The World According To Jeff Goldblum”, “Lilli e il Vagabondo” e “The Imagineering Story”.

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 the STARZ channel without the need of a cable subscription. With your subscription, you’ll get access to 7,500+ films and episodes, including all of their current originals like “Outlander,” The Serpent Queen,” “BMF,” and “Power.”
The service also offers a large rotating library of older films like “Die Hard, The Big Lebowski, Fargo, 12 Monkeys,” and “A Beautiful Mind.”
You can subscribe for US$ 8.99 a month either directly from STARZ, or through Amazon Prime Video Channels, Apple TV Channels, or Roku Premium Subscriptions.
