Disney+ Hotstar, a Disney owned streaming service, has announced its new pricing tiers, which will be under effect starting September 1. The Disney owned streaming service is adopting Netflix’s approach, which means you have different features available for different pricing. Also, the Disney+ VIP will be discontinued.
The new plans for Disney+ Hotstar will start at Rs. 499, replacing the VIP plan, which was available for Rs. 399. However, the Rs. 499 base plan will only allow you to stream only on the mobile app. Meanwhile, the Super plan, which costs Rs. 899 per year will let you stream on two devices at the same time in HD quality. The price for the Premium plan remains unchanged at Rs. 1,499, but now you can stream across four devices simultaneously in up to 4K.

|Disney+ Hotstar Premium||Rs. 1,499||4||4K|
With the VIP being discontinued, all the premium content will be available on both Mobile and Super plans. That means all the Hollywood movies and TV shows from Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, HBO, FX, Showtime, 20th Century, and Searchlight Pictures will now be available across every tier.
“The content slate demonstrates our relentless pursuit of bringing original and locally relevant stories to our consumers. With our fresh slate of movies and shows, we are proud that India’s top stars and industry stalwarts have chosen to debut with us to present stories that are genre-defining clubbed with high-quality production that makes Har Watch, Top Notch. With the newly introduced subscription plans, we want to make our content more accessible to our viewers by offering best-in-class entertainment while giving them an opportunity to choose the plan that best suits their needs,” said Sunil Rayan, Chief and President, Disney+ Hotstar, in a statement.
