Indian digital viewers were caught by surprise this morning when Disney+ began streaming on the Hotstar platform — out of the blue, and eighteen days too soon!

A quick glance through Hotstar shows that a large repertoire of Disney+ Original series and films have already been added to Hotstar’s existing library of titles.

One doesn’t even need to update the Hotstar app to access the new Disney+ content. But if you do update the app, you’ll be delighted to see the new logo and colours of Disney+ Hotstar as the new updated splash screen.

Another happy fact for subscribers is that if you’ve already got the Hotstar Premium subscription plan, then you don’t need to pay anything extra at present to access the Disney+ content. Marquee Disney+ shows such as The Mandalorian Season 1, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Season 1, Diary of a Future President: Season 1, Marvel’s Hero Project: Season 1; and Disney+ Original films such as Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made, Noelle and Togo are all available for streaming with your Hotstar Premium account.

The Hotstar VIP subscription plan also has several great watches to offer viewers who don’t want to upgrade to the Premium account.

The Premium account is available at a subscription rate of Rs 299 per month and Rs 999 for the entire year, while the VIP account is available at a rate of Rs 369 for the year.
