MUMBAI: In a landmark move, Star India has decided to shut down its linear channels in the US from 5 January. The broadcaster will build Hotstar as the go-to destination for all Star India content.

The entire Star India network, including Star India Plus, Star India Gold, Star Vijay, Maa, Asianet, and MoviesOK, will no longer be available on any cable TV provider in the US including Dish TV, Sling TV, Comcast, Verizon starting 5 January 2019. For fans of Star India’s TV content offering, a Hotstar subscription is, more than ever, a must-have.

Hotstar is available at an annual subscription of $99.99, which will give consumers complete access to the entertainment library and cricket calendar throughout the year. Log onto us.hotstar.com and use promo code HOTSTAR40 to get 40% off on the annual pack.

“Now, more consumers will be exposed to Hotstar’s premium product interface and cutting-edge streaming experience. We are extremely excited to continue to bring the South Asian Diaspora their favorite entertainment content. Newcomers to the platform will quickly feel the benefits of being able to watch their beloved shows anytime, anywhere,” said Star India President of Hotstar International and Strategy Ipsita Dasgupta.

Apart from its robust entertainment library, Hotstar is home to an unrivaled sports content offering. The platform offers a highly enhanced live cricket experience that includes HD quality, commentary in 8 languages, expert analysis, predictions, and highlights.

Live cricket events to look forward to include India vs. Australia Series in February 2019, the IPL in April 2019, and the ICC Cricket World Cup in May 2019. The platform is also home to exclusive surround cricket content with shows like Breakfast with Champions, Follow the Blues and Game Plan, making for a truly immersive experience for the cricket enthusiast.
