Don’t use this app it’s not worth it all, they just know how to charge from ur account but on the name of service nothing most worst service.
Same ad playing again and again so irritating to watch .
I love watching my shows in the app and everything was going well but recently last 2 days u guys started putting this VIP ad every 2 min of any show I’m watching. The ad is related to India not USA as u guys don’t have any plan like that for here. I just want to watch the shows so I don’t need the $99 package that includes everything so please at least put some limit on how often the ad is shown as it really messes with one’s entertainment experience. Thanks!
Subscied to Hotstar just in time for IPL finals and WC 2029. Love their streaming quality of live events and movies. Videos play in good quality even on big TVs. Now I can enjoy live WC action on big screen.
I really enjoyed Hotstar but whenever I watch Hindi serials it shows 3 to 4 ads and it’s really bothering me now so I will uninstall Hotstar now.
Why show a Kannada ad to a user that doesn’t even speak Kannada? That too a 30sec ad, 5 times in a 20 min show.
Loved watching Indian shows and sports on this app. Good HD quality videos and app works well for streaming Indian tv series and shows.
Watching the IPL on a 200 mbps connection in the same room as the router. Yet, the HD streaming quality is so poor. Keeps buffering and freezing frames, can’t see a match properly. Can’t believe I am getting such quality after paying a monthly subscription. Disappointed and frustrated. Went ahead and cancelled my renewal
No AirPlay option , app not available on older apple tv. I don’t want to mirror my iPhone screen all the time to watch hotstar.
Since I’m watching this serial on hot star I find it very clear reception, no disturbance & no adds which is a nuisance, it’s perfect I give u full marks for this program.
Worst UI experience. Am unable to find the content properly.
Does not work when I use hdmi adapter and connect to my tv. Please fix it.
I found this out when I was traveling to New York and wanted to watch the IPL. I knew that it wouldn’t come free. I paid the $20 to watch this for one month. You may think that this is expensive, but you also can watch movies and tv shows. I recommend this to everyone.
How do I subscribe only for watching movies and serials only?
Multi-device app. I watch the videos on my iPad, or iPhone, or my laptop, or on my smart TV. Excellent quality.
The bigger the screen the higher the lag is. 1990s Delhi doordarshan had better quality than this app. Before you ask, yes I have 1 Gig speed at home and using Apple TV (1080P). I don’t want watch anything else other than cricket, but my wife complains about content also, not much there. All in all, I would say try some other app.
I love the content on Hotstar but the streaming quality is just pathetic. I have a 250 Mbps internet connection on which Netflix, Hulu and YouTube stream at 4K. Hotstar is super blocky and customer support blames my Apple TV device for the low quality. I am not convinced that the internet connect or my Apple TV device are the issue here. Update: 31st Mar 2019 Hotstar responded to this review asking me to send my details to customer support. I’ve already been through customer support once. Retrying now.
Best app for cricket fans. Watch matches online doesn’t matter where you are.
Live streaming of IPL is pathetic, it’s spoiling all the fun and thrill of the game. Should not take it up if you can’t deliver good quality.
Enjoying watching IPL 2019 on hotstar. However, videos are buffering and distorted on the mobile phones.
