The demand for OTT platforms has increased very rapidly since the Corona period. Because of this, all the companies keep on offering their new subscription plans. If you are a Disney + Hotstar lover and use this app to watch movies or series, then there is important news for you. Actually, Disney + Hotstar introduced new plans and subscription models in July. The new plans will be applicable from 1 September 2021. These new plans will affect all new users and existing users as well. Disney+ Hotstar’s new pricing model is based on the number of users and streaming quality. Existing subscribers who already have a subscription will continue to get the same benefits as before till the end of the subscription period.
The new plans start at ₹499 and go up to ₹1,499 per year. One difference that earlier customers would notice is the inclusion of all the content. Previously, users without a premium subscription could not access content such as Disney+ originals, Disney TV shows, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, HBO, FX, Showtime, 20th Century, and Searchlight Pictures. After the implementation of the new plan, the content library will be the same for the lowest and highest plan subscribers.
The cheapest plan to get a Disney + Hotstar subscription is now Rs 499. However, the streaming quality has been limited to HD and the content will be available only on mobile phones. Streaming giant Netflix also offers a similar plan.
This plan, which could be popular for customers who want to stream Disney+ Hotstar content on TV, will offer the benefit of streaming HD content on two devices simultaneously. The two devices can be tablets, TV, or even mobile.
The flagship plan offers content in 4K and will be a major upgrade over the previous plans as users will be able to stream content on up to four devices simultaneously. Once the number of users exceeds four, one of the last logged-in accounts will be automatically logged out.
