How Does the New Disney+ Hotstar New Plans Compare to Amazon Prime Video & Netflix in India?

Earlier this week, Disney+ Hotstar unveiled a new subscription plan, which includes three subscription types and a slight price increase, which will become available in India on September 1.

As of the end of June, 38 million households were subscribed to Disney+ Hotstar, accounting for more than one-third of Disney’s global subscribers. This price hike and new tiers should help the company reach its goal of 70 million to 100 million Disney+ Hotstar subscribers by the end of 2024.

Currently, Disney+ Hotstar only offers two subscription tiers — VIP, an ad-supported tier with limited content, and Premium, which has no ads and allows subscribers full access to the content library. Beginning September 1, the subscription levels will change, adding a third tier and allowing all subscribers to have access to all of Disney+ Hotstar’s shows and movies at every level. The VIP designation will go away at that point.

How does Disney+ Hotstar’s new subscription plans compare to Amazon Prime Video and Netflix in India?

The new Disney+ Hotstar subscription model most closely resembles Netflix’s global subscription plans. The major difference is that Disney+ Hotstar’s new plan costs a fraction of what Netflix costs in India.

Netflix

Netflix is a subscription video streaming service that includes on-demand access to 3,000+ movies, 2,000+ TV Shows, and Netflix Originals like Stranger Things, Mindhunter, Queer Eye, and Russian Doll. They are constantly adding new shows and movies — and have even begun creating original films like The Irishman (Robert De Niro, Al Pacino) and Dolemite is My Name (Eddie Murphy).

The service offers a library of classic comedies like Friends and The Office, but those will be moving to HBO Max and Peacock, respectively, next year.

Netflix offers three plans — on 1 device in SD with their “Basic” (¥800) plan, on 2 devices in HD with their “Standard” (¥1,200) plan, and 4 devices in up to 4K on their “Premium” (¥1,800) plan.

Netflix spends more money on content than any other streaming service meaning that you get more value for the monthly fee.

Amazon Prime Video

To access Amazon Prime Video in India, you will need to sign up for an Amazon Prime subscription. It costs Rs. 129 per month or Rs. 999 per year and includes Prime Music and Prime Delivery.
