More on Hotstar

Since Hotstar is Discontinue from 1st September in the USA, So watch Hotstar Sports content T20 World Cup including IPL 2021 in ESPN Plus or Disney Bundle as Hotstar’s sports content, Including IPL, T20 World Cup Moved to ESPN Plus and Hotstar entertainment contents are moved to Hulu.

Hotstar was developed in 2015 by the star network to provide more streaming services in India. Star CEO Sanjay Gupta said, “there weren’t many platforms available to Indian consumers offering high-quality, curated content besides, say, YouTube.” He also explained that the service would appeal most prominently to the growing young adult demographic and feature “very targeted” advertising. He estimated that by 2020, the service could account for nearly a quarter of Star’s annual revenue.

Hotstar got a significant boost in user count after the launch of LTE by JIO in 2016. JIO provided free unlimited internet for three months and later extended it for two more months. Due to the free services, people left no opportunity to gaze on these OTT platforms. 

After receiving the new funding from Star US holdings, Hotstar decided to create more original content to upload to the app. This was done to compete with other streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime. Amidst concerns, the service was beginning to hemorrhage cash.

Disney+ with Hotstar.

Later, in 2020, after the Walt Disney Company bought the rights of the Star Networks in 2019, they integrated Disney+ with Hotstar. This was solely done to introduce Disney+ to Indian users. Disney would not have succeeded if it wasn’t for Hotstar. In India, OTT platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime had already established a strong following. So to compete with them, Disney came up with the idea of integration with Hotstar.

The Motley Fool described Hotstar as Disney’s strategy to enter the Indian market.

The service officially launched with a “virtual red carpet premiere” of The Lion King and Disney+ series The Mandalorian, featuring actors Rana Daggubati, Katrina Kaif, Shraddha Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan, and Tiger Shroff participating in live interactions.
