The applications Hotstar was published
in the category Entertainment on 2017-09-03 and
was developed by Novi Digital.
The file size is 178.49 MB.
The current version is 6.62 and works well on
9.0 and high ios versions.
In this release we have fixed a lot of issues including audio selection for casting.
They sent me an email with an offer for yearly subscription for $60 and then the website cannot take my payment and so I can't avail the offer. I call their help desk phone number and the guy is less than helpful and just kept repeating the steps of clicks I have to do to sign up. Such liars and thugs!!! Never buy this!!!
No update on Vijay tv program
The app & tv series are okay sometimes they mess around with the upload times but it’s understandable. What I don’t get is why no one reached out to me when I sent several emails stating how my account was being charged twice in a row for same services. They didn’t do anything until I called up my bank and canceled my debit card and kept my credit card number same. It happened 3 months in a row before I caught the mistake. Charged my Apple iTunes and my debit card. Same on you guys
Though I would say that I am no 100% satisfied by the app, I would still rate it best when compared to others like voot and see
1. Showing the cricket and other famous shows thumbnails they attract customers to subscribe. 2. There’s no exact content listed what they offer for the subscribers. 3. Few idiotic films they never update new movies. 4. They also advertised saying subscribers can watch cricket, later after the subscription I realised it’s not live just a recorded version which we can watch on YouTube for free( up to my knowledge because the app user interface is the most pathetic thing I don’t even want to write) Finally the conclusion of this app is just a messed up subscription with 90 odd $$ feeling extremely bad rating this with a single star hope I would rate 0000000.
Video quality is poor
Amazingly horrible customer service. They don’t call back. They email back with no detail to follow up. As many customers said they take your money and don’t provide the services
Looks like the hd format is for namesake. Streaming gets struck when hd format is selected and it gets back to low quality streaming. Also I didn’t find an app for TV. Doesn’t cast to roku tv. You don’t get to watch cricket or movies in hd quality and not on TV. This review is from Florida. Not sure about other states in USA.
I subscribed using the promo code that they had sent which included amazon gift card. Received a confirmation email about the subscription. 2 weeks later, I don’t receive any amazon gift card and I am unable access the content. I call them and they say that I was never subscribed and that they now cannot honor the earlier promotion that they had sent. They had done technical glitch at the time I had subscribed. Seriously?? Update 3/12/2019 - I reached out to the hotstar support as per their response on this review. That didn’t help either. They blatantly mentioned that it was a payment failure in their end and that now they cannot honor the earlier offer. They didn’t make any effort to reach out to me. They just removed my access. Very poor customer service.
First of all after paying for the entire year with all package, the app doesn't work. When app doesn't play video it says contact help. The email is very inefficient way to reach out to them with no response. Also I was able to download the episode but when I try to play it, application crashes all the time. This is happening on top of the line phone and most recent ios. They should test app before publishing it. Leqrd from Netflix and YouTube.
Purchased annual sports n entertainment pack, but it not streaming cricket, which comes in start sports hd1 while it is streaming in India. Where as the channels in the hot star shows available but cricket is not streaming live
I took subscription to watch New Zealand and india series based on their website information. After buying subscription, I discovered live cast is avail only in india. Malpractice I guess.
I have watched a lot of series in Hotstar before. But now it says you cant watch its not available to maldives. Please make this available.
Got subscription of hotstar for Sarabhai vs Sarabhai season 1. But it’s not their on the app. Please review where to find it ?
They mention in their websites that you have access to all Cricket matches, but actually you don't. After contacting customer care they replied very rudely Very disappointed Poor service Please don't go with this service
The place to put promotion code is hidden. After being changed $100 for the subscription, tried to call for support to add the code.. but the number did not work. In addition, I bought the package to watch odi cricket from USA, but don’t stream.. I will be happy if I can get my money back
They promised for the India New Zealand streaming but when I purchased the subscription they were not streaming the series. Their customer service is too bad, they don’t pick up the calls. I need my money back, cancelled the subscription.
It’s amazingly seamless streaming.... Hotstar is definitely superb
They use deceptive advertising. Claim to stream cricket matches live in the US but won’t. Useless programs and useless customer care. Boycott this.
