Hubby and I have different tastes in television viewing. I can count on one hand the programmes we equally enjoyed; 24 was one. Recently, we were reminiscing about some of the memorable scenes in the series. Now that Star has launched on Disney +, we have the chance enjoy 24 and other mega shows that have had an impact on pop culture. Subscribers can revisit or watch for the first time series like Black-Ish, Scandal and The X Files or films such as The Devil Wears Prada and William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet much more. We are also new to Disney+ the streaming app. It was gifted to us to trial Star and the new features. Now that Star is on the Disney+ the platform has new parental controls and there are exciting shows for older viewers.
Introducing Star On Disney+
Star on Disney+ gives us grownups something to kickback to. Nope, Disney is not just for kids. Star has brought with it over 75 TV series and 280 movies. Additionally, there are four exclusive Star Originals and fresh content being added every week.
You will find well known favourites, like Homeland, Atlanta and Grey’s Anatomy brand-new originals such as Love Victor and exclusives all of which can be found using the Disney+ app.
How Does The Parental Controls Work?
Star on Disney+ has new parental controls. When the account holder create a child’s profile, or a profile is set with bespoke content ratings, the app simultaneously lists all the child/family-friendly programmes relevant for the content rating of that profile.
- Go to profile, click ‘Add Profile’,
- Choose an Avatar
- Give it a name.
- To set bespoke content control, select Content Rating which is under Parental Controls in the profile you are setting-up. You will need your password to change parental controls.
Rest assured the PIN-protected profiles, can sit alongside already existing Kid Profiles. After subscribers opt in to access mature content, Star entertainment will be featured on the Disney+ homepage under “New to Disney+,” “Recommended, For You,” “Trending” rows, and more.
The new feature is handy for those of us with children who are old enough and competent on gadgets and apps BUT still too young for certain content that will be on Star.

Programmes We’ve Discovered
I’ve begun watching Nature Boy! It’s a documentary about the American professional wrestler Ric Flair. Yep! I luv wrestling. I can still remember Ric’s visit to Trinidad in 1983. He fought Victor Jovica (Croatian-born Puerto Rican professional wrestler). The way I remember it, Flair lost but boy, what a character. The documentary also called Nature Boy follows the highs and lows of his life. My next watch will be the thriller Big Sky.
