With the release of Disney Plus drawing near, Disney fans in the US, Canada, the Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand are increasingly excited. However, fans from other countries will be blocked out of Disney Plus. Many Indian fans are wondering how to stream content from Disney Plus.
As the Indian Netflix, Hotstar is an over-the-top streaming service operated by the subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company. It provides you with three types of streaming services – ad-supported service, Hotstar VIP and Premium.
As-supported service: free
Hotstar VIP: ₹365 ($5.16) per year
Hotstar Premium: ₹299 ($4.23) per month; ₹999 ($14.13) per year
Thanks to its ad-supported service, all users can watch content from Star India without paying anything. While local content, the World Cup cricket matches and even Premier League football from the United Kingdom are all available to Hotstar VIP. What you should note is that Hotstar Premium allows Disney fans to stream content from Disney. Besides, international content from HBO, Hooq and 20th Century Fox are also accessible to Hotstar Premium subscribers.
Subscribe to Disney Plus with a VPN
In addition to Hoststar, users can stream content from Disney Plus with a VPN.
As a new Disney streaming platform, Disney Plus will be launched in the US, Canada, the Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand successively. The subscription fee ranges from $6.21 per month in Australia to $7.82 per month in the Netherlands.
You can connect to a VPN server in any of the above countries to subscribe to Disney Plus. If you want to save money on the subscription fee, you’d better choose a VPN service that offers reliable servers in Australia. Connecting to an Australia server, your IP address will be changed to that of the server. Thus, the website server will think that you are from Australia.
Hotstar vs. Disney Plus
When it comes to the subscription fee, we will select Hotstar because it can save you a lot of money. But we are not sure whether Hotstar will offer the new content from Disney Plus.
It was reported by Livemint that all content from Disney Plus will be available on Hotstar, including new content produced by Disney. If it is true, Indian fans will be able to enjoy all Disney content via Hotstar. They only need to purchase the existing Hotstar Premium.
