On the 23rd of February, Disney+ is adding a new channel known as Star. Star will launch with a bunch of extra content – from old favourites to new exciting media for Australian audiences.

The channel will essentially house things from the catalogue of media Disney acquired when they purchased Fox, Hulu and America’s ABC network. The channel will feature hundreds of seasons of beloved TV series like Alias, Felicity, Desperate Housewives, Bob’s Burgers and Ugly Betty as well as cult classic films, including Die Hard, Pretty Woman and many more.

The channel will also introduce its own Originals in the near future. In the meantime here are some of the exclusive titles you can binge on Disney+’s Star channel from the 23rd of February.

Bob’s Burgers

Created in 2011, American animated sitcom Bob’s Burgers follows the Belcher family, their burger restaurant and shenanigans. Seasons 1 through 9 will all be streaming on Disney+ in a few days time.

The Alien Franchise 

Ridley Scott’s classic cult sci-fi-horror franchise will now be fully available on Disney+ under Star. Alien, Alien Resurrection, Alien Vs. Predator, Alien: Covenant, Alien3, Aliens, and Aliens Vs. Predator – Requiem will all be streaming from next week.

Love, Victor

Did you watch the film, Love, Simon and want more? Star Original series Love, Victor has got your back. Set in the same world as Love, Simon, this TV spin-off focuses on titular teen Victor Salazar (Michael Cimino) and his rocky road to self-acceptance after he and his family move to a new town.

Black-ish

Black-ish is one of the best family sitcoms of all time, following the adventures of an upper-middle-class Black American family as they navigate the predominantly white social spaces they live in. The Emmy Award and Golden Globe-winning comedy series Black-ish stars Anthony Anderson, and Tracee Ellis Ross, and it is all at once hilarious, uplifting, heartbreaking, and painfully relevant. Seasons 1-5 will be streaming exclusively via Star on Disney plus from next week.
