Disney+ Hotstar has a great selection of content and is available on a number of devices from your Smart TV, smartphone and even streaming dongles like the Fire TV Stick. Disney+ Hotstar is not only home to all of Disney’s content but also sports broadcast in India like the IPL and even a lot of Hollywood movies and TV shows. Not to mention Hotstar originals.
One thing to note is that Disney+ Hotstar is available in 2 different plans - Disney+ Hotstar VIP and Disney+ Hotstar Premium. If you are wondering what's the difference between the 2, then worry not. We’ve got you covered.
Let’s start by answering the most important question. What’s the price of the different Disney+ Hotstar subscriptions? Disney+ Hotstar VIP is priced at Rs 399 for a year. On the other hand, Disney+ Hotstar Premium is priced at Rs 299 per month or Rs 1499 per year.
Let’s start with the cheaper plan. With Disney+ Hotstar VIP, users get access to the following.
On the other hand, Disney+ Hotstar Premium members get the following in addition to the above.
So, as you can see from the above, there are 2 big differences. The latest American movies and shows include the likes of Lovecraft Country, Game of Thrones, True Detective and many more, which are gems hidden in Disney+ Hotstar. As for Disney+ originals, The Mandalorian is one such show that you can only watch if you have access to the Premium membership. Suffice to say, there is a large library of content hidden behind the Premium subscription.
One of the most important questions to answer is how many devices can simultaneously watch from a single account.
To put things into perspective, the Netflix Mobile plan gives users access to only 1 screen at a time, just like its SD plan. The Netflix HD plan gives users access to 2 simultaneous streams and the top of the like UHD plan gives access to 4 simultaneous streams.
Another thing to note is that if you have a 4K HDR and even Dolby Vision enabled TV, then you can take advantage of 4K and HDR content on Disney+ Hotstar.
