General information about the company.
Disney+ Hotstar is an Indian brand of subscription video on-demand over-the-top streaming service
operated by Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution, a division of The Walt Disney Company.
The brand was first introduced as Hotstar by Star India as a streaming service carrying content from its local
networks, including films, television series, live sports, and original programming, as well as featuring content
licensed from third-parties such as HBO and Showtime among others. Amid the significant growth of mobile
broadband in India, Hotstar quickly became the dominant streaming service in the country.
Following the acquisition of Star India's parent company 21st Century Fox by Disney in 2019, Hotstar was
integrated with the company's new global streaming brand Disney+ as Disney+ Hotstar in April 2020. The
co-branded service added Disney+ original programming, and films and television series from its main
content brands of Walt Disney Studios, Pixar, Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm, and National Geographic alongside
the domestic and third-party content already carried on the platform.
Outside of India, the Disney+ Hotstar service also operates in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand, which
similarly combines entertainment content licensed from local, third-party studios, with the larger Disney+
