There are price wars going on between OTT platforms and we are not complaining. The latest on the discount list is Disney+ Hotstar. Some users are reporting that the streaming platform is offering them a plan of as low as Rs 49 per month. No official announcement has been made about such a plan for now, but users have taken to Reddit to share screenshots of the monthly plan.
It looks like Disney+ Hotstar is sharing the benefits of this new plan with select Android users. However, the new plan is only available on mobiles and tablets. according to a screengrab share By Tech Only, the company is offering 50% off for a new Rs 99 plan. The price tag of Rs 49 is introductory in nature. Disney+ Hotstar support confirmed that it is only available for certain Android users.
The plan allows the user to watch content on just one screen and with a maximum resolution of 720p. This plan also offers stereo sound quality. Another caveat is that the content will contain ads that users will see. However, all Disney+ Hotstar content will be available to its users. The company may eventually announce and then roll out the introductory offer to more users.
Another streaming giant that has upped its game in recent times is Netflix. The US-based OTT platform was brought to India in 2016. The streaming giant was offering plans at the same rate from the beginning till last week. The prices of almost all the plans have been cut by up to 60%. The cheapest plan now starts at Rs 149 per month which offers mobile-only viewing and a maximum resolution of 480p. User can stream content on only one screen.
The highest plan, which was earlier priced at Rs 799 before the price cut, is now being offered at Rs 649 for the same benefit. Users get up to 4K resolution with support for four different profiles that can be accessed simultaneously.
