According to the official statement, the STAR Channel is aimed at young people and adults, with a wide variety of content offered, including national and international productions. The films, series and programs will have dubbing and subtitles in Portuguese, with support for the SAP function according to the availability of each operator. Hits like “The Simpsons” and “The Walking Dead” will be available in the catalog, as well as recent films like “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and “Jurassic World”, for example.
STAR Life, on the other hand, is focused on films and series “that bring emotions to the fore”, having an entirely dubbed collection, with the SAP function, with genres ranging from comedy to thrillers and dramas. STAR Premium, on the other hand, is a subscription package that offers a premium experience of acclaimed series in a double combo: the channels STAR Hits 1 and STAR Hits 2.
