For fans of Star India’s TV content offering, a Hotstar subscription is, more than ever, a must-have.

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.
