    They added the Star section to Disney Plus and they moved the Simpsons over there which makes sense. I’m also surprised that American Dad is right up to date.
    No Cleveland Show. Obviously the bigger shows are coming later. :)

    Which is great, I haven't seen any episodes since they left fox and Netflix stopped getting them!

    I watched the Christopher Reeve and Star Wars episodes of The Muppet Show over the weekend. Good times...

    I had to set up kids profiles and passcodes. Some of the stuff on Star is a bit on the risqué side for what you'd usually find associated with Disney.

    For me you had to re login and get verification codes for each profile that had permission to access to the more adult content

    I'm in the UK. For me, profiles have just shown up for some reason, seemingly coinciding with the addition of Star. Up until now, I could only set a kids filter on the main account. However, the content available didn't seem to necessitate doing that given the ages involved.

    Yeah I'm in Canada. The default here is rated for 14 or younger, to watch anything rated higher here each person's profile had to be independently verified by the account holder through two step authentication - login and verification code. So it sounds like the UK settings are the opposite of Canada's

    You don’t have to set them up. I skipped it on mine

    You do if you don't want a 15-year old watching The Favourite.

    I really like the way they've set up the passcodes. I wish Netflix and others would do something similar.

    I'm sure you can. I don't watch movies such as The Favourite hoping to see porn though. I don't need your expert advice, thank you.

    She's not interested in watching it as far as I know and I don't enquire. Once she's 16 and I adjust the viewing profile, she can watch it if she chooses as it's rated 16+. It might give her a strange opinion of the early 18th century English ruling class but it's not intended to be very accurate historically.

    You wouldn't skip on it if you had kids in single figures who regularly use the service unsupervised, and you don't want them thinking that Family Guy is a kid's show.

    Yeah, I don't have kids, but it seems like a good idea for them set something like that up, especially since this is Disney we're talking about. With their family friendly reputation, they're definitely going to want to make sure parents have a way to keep kids from seeing stuff they don't want them to.
    If I had young kids and I didn't want them seeing R or TV-MA (or whatever the equivalents are for the countries Star is in) I would definitely use it.
