    Time to wave goodbye to our already reduced social lives.

    Yes, that's over 350 feature-length films, documentaries, live-action and animated series from Disney’s creative studios, including Disney Television Studios (20th Television and ABC Signature), FX Productions, and 20th Century Studios. I might need to sit down.

    These shows are only streaming on Disney+ in Europe, and we can expect new titles to be added every month!

    And if you're worried about your children accidentally watching Family Guy, say no more! New parental controls will include the ability to set access limits on mature content and create PIN-protected profiles.

    Once parental controls are turned on, the main account holder can select a content rating for each profile. Once that's been applied, a profile will only be able to view what is relevant for their content rating. Nifty, huh?

    There's something for everyone to watch on Star, so make you check it out! Anyways, BRB, I'll be watching Ugly Betty from the very beginning.
