How to Download and Sign-Up For Star Streaming Service on Chromecast

Star adds more general entertainment to Disney+ streaming service at no extra charge.

Star houses thousands of hours of Disney-owned content from ABC, Hulu, FX, and Freeform, as well as television and movies from Disney Television Studios, FX, 20th Century Studios, 20th Television, and more.

You can stream original series like “Big Sky,” “High Fidelity,” “American Horror Stories,” and “Solar Opposites.” You will also get access to a huge library of titles geared for adults like Prison Break, Family Guy, Modern Family, X-Files, 24, and more.

The content lives under the sixth title – after Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. To access the content on Star for the first time, you will first need to unlock it on your Disney+ account by confirming your account password.

Since in most countries this is effectively a new extra channel for Disney+, there is a resulting slight increase to the price of the service. The Star streaming service costs £7.99 / month, or £79.90 / year (£6.66 / month).
