Since joining forces with Hulu, Disney+ has been on a magical journey, expanding its entertainment library and delighting subscribers worldwide. But as Rumpelstiltskin wisely noted, “All magic comes at a price, dearie.”

From the day it launched, Disney+ quickly ascended to the heights of streaming glory, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with giants like Netflix and Hulu. Fans relish its digital treasure trove of Disney classics, original creations, and a kaleidoscopic array of content. However, Star+ is now merging with our beloved House of Mouse, and subscribers may feel a pinch.

To give you a bit of background, Star+ is Hulu’s Latin American cousin, offering a blend of general entertainment and live sports. As of June 26, 2024, Disney+ users across Latin America will notice a price hike. According to Roger Palmer from What’s On Disney Plus, the new Standard Tier will cost approximately R$43.90 (around $8.53 USD) monthly, offering HD streaming on two devices. The Premium Tier will be R$62.90 monthly, featuring 4K UHD and HDR content on four devices.

This isn’t the first time Disney+ has adjusted its pricing. Subscribers in the UK and European markets have already felt the impact of similar price hikes. These changes are part of a broader trend affecting several streaming services at a time when they’re also clamping down on account sharing.
