Hotstar is one of the most widely used streaming services in India. It has a pretty significant library of content that the users get to watch. Furthermore, the service has a VIP membership, which provides users with premium content. The Hostar catalog includes the likes of major sports, TV shows, movies, and even Disney Plus content. If all of this was not enough, Hotstar is now offering live TV channels to its VIP subscribers on both Android and iOS platforms.
Hostar VIP Subscribers Can Now Watch Live TV Channels on Android and iOS
The report has come up courtesy of a user submission made on DreamDTH. The user has posted a bunch of images of their Hostar screen, which clearly shows a bunch of live channels being played. We can spot TV channels like StarPlus, Star Vijay, Asianet, Maa Gold, and Star Sports Select HD1. While the images are limited to the channels we have mentioned above, we can certainly expect that there would be more live TV channels that the users can get to enjoy. The user says, “Today when I log on to Hotstar and click on channel icon I got live channel section on Hotstar Android TV app. Below is the screenshot.”
So far, the live TV feature of Hotstar appears to be exclusive just to the Android and iOS app users, and we have not heard of the same to be rolled out to the web version of the streaming app. That said, since the service has already begun, we can expect the same to be pushed to the web version in the coming days.
