Disney+ Hotstar goes live in India from today, well before March 29 launch
Disney+ Hotstar service is now live in India, much ahead of its March 29, 2020 launch date. The move happens just hours after Hotstar was rebranded as Disney+ Hotstar. Disney+ Originals such as ‘The Mandalorian’, ‘The World According to Jeff Goldblum’, ‘Marvel’s Hero Project’ and more can now be accessed on the service.
The Disney+ Hotstar service has reportedly gone live from today morning (March 11, 2020).
As reported earlier, Robert Iger, CEO, Disney, had announced the scheduled launch of Disney+ service in India in the company’s quarterly earnings call in February this year. Iger had mentioned that the company would launch the new streaming service under a rebranded entity called Disney+ Hotstar.
A quick check of the Disney+ Hotstar shows that as of now, the subscription rates remain unchanged, with the Premium service available for Rs 299 per month and Rs 999 per year. The VIP service is available for Rs 365 per year.
