What else should I know about Disney+?
Andor is the latest in a series of new blockbuster releases exclusive to the platform, including Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk and Obi-Wan Kenobi. And there’s plenty more where these came from, including Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi, Willow and The Mandalorian Season 3, all of which will be released in the coming weeks and months.
You’ll also find documentaries from National Geographic, Disney and Pixar classics, the entire Star Wars saga and every season of The Simpsons.
Star on Disney Plus, on the other hand, has more than doubled the amount of content available through Disney Plus, with a special focus on more mature shows. Some of the best Star on Disney Plus shows are Pam and Tommy and Dopesick. And parents don’t have to worry about their kids accidentally seeing inappropriate content, as Star includes a range of parental controls to ensure the service remains as family-friendly as ever.
Star on Disney Plus is available in the UK, most of Europe and other select markets like Australia and New Zealand – but not in the US, where the media giant’s Hulu service already has a very similar reach.
So what devices can you watch Disney Plus on? The streaming service has apps for iOS and Android (of course) and can be watched online via streaming devices like the Amazon Fire TV Stick, PS4, Xbox One, and Roku.
