‘Disney + Hotstar’ streaming started in India from now. In other words, from now onwards you will see Disney branding in the Hotstar app that you had. Note that ‘Disney Hotstar’ has tied the knot. So, from now onwards, you can watch Disney’s popular movie cartoon series in the Hotstar app.

The name of the Hotstar app has changed since Friday. New name is ‘Disney + hotstar’. You can watch business movies, cartoons, TV shows, etc. in Hotstar Premium and Hotstar VIP. This means that even if you no longer subscribe to Hotstar VIP, you can watch video streaming of all content, including all movies.

So do you have to spend extra money to get Hotstar VIP from now on? 

Those who already have Hotstar Premium and VIP subscriptions do not have to pay extra.

If you want to get a new subscription, you have to spend Rs 1499 for the premium service, 399 for VIP service which was earlier 999 and 365 rupees. Disney movie cartoons and TV shows do not fall under the VIP premium, you can watch them for free.

Will Disney’s original show be seen on Disney Hotstar VIP? 

No. Only those who use the premium service will be able to watch the Disney original show. VIP users can watch movies, cartoons and TV in multiple Indian languages.

So can I view Disney+ original shows if I have Disney+Hotstar VIP? 

No. The Disney+ original shows are limited to those who are paying for the premium service. VIP users get access to content in different Indian languages. While Marvel movies, The Lion King, Frozen II, Aladdin and Toy Story 4, Mickey Mouse shows can be accessed along with Bollywood films, these are limited to regional languages. Live sports and STAR serials will be available to VIP users.

What extra content will Disney+ bring?

Disney+ is the original streaming service from the media giant. So all the Marvel movies, Star Wars universe, etc is part of the Disney universe. Then there will be original content from Disney, similar to how Netflix and Amazon Prime Video have their own original content. Currently, there are 29 Disney+ originals, including The Mandalorian, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Lady and the Tramp, and other upcoming shows. The latest American shows from studios like HBO, Fox, Showtime will also be available to the premium users.

Can I still watch the free content on Disney+Hotstar?

The ad-based free content is still accessible. Just note that it does not include any of the Disney+ content or Hotstar originals, or premium content, which was anyway limited to paying subscribers.
