The service provides access to all the Walt Disney portfolio. This includes content under Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and National Geographic. The company is also providing bundled subscriptions with other streaming services including Hulu and ESPN in the United States.
Over-The-Top (OTT) streaming services giant Hotstar has long been rumored to bring the Disney+ content to the Indian market. However, with Disney+ launch in the United States, Canada, and the Netherlands, there is no dedicated announcement regarding the India launch. As noted previously, the service provides access to all the Walt Disney portfolio. This includes content under Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and National Geographic. The company is also providing bundled subscriptions with other streaming services including Hulu and ESPN in the United States. Moving back to Hotstar, interested fans were looking forward to an official statement regarding the launch of Disney+ by now.
Disney+ India launch details :
However, Hotstar has not shared an official statement regarding the launch of Disney+. Taking a closer look, one of the Hotstar Twitter accounts, Hotstar Helps reaffirmed its commitment regarding the Disney+ launch. The account confirmed that the Hotstar is currently working to bring the content to India. In past tweets, the company also confirmed that the content will be available on the Hotstar platform. This likely means that the service will not launch as a separate platform in the market. Though, this does confuse us when we look at the leaked India pricing.
Focusing on the leaked pricing, it looked quite official while somewhat matching Netflix India plans. It is also possible that Hotstar may add a third price tier to include the Dinsey+ content. This new segment will join the existing VIP and Premium segments at a higher price point. Hotstar has not shared the official launch date for Disney+ in India. In the meantime, we have shared a detailed guide on how to access the content now in India.
Disney+ streaming subscription price in India :
Amidst the lack of clarity, India news has likely discovered the potential price of Disney+ in India. We stumbled on the pricing for the service while trying to access it in India. So, Walt Disney is likely to price the Disney+ video streaming service at Rs 590 per month or Rs 5,900 per year.
The yearly subscription will allow users to save 17 percent on the monthly subscription. In addition, the company is also likely to offer a free 7-day trial to users at launch. All this information likely means Dinsey+ may actually launch as a separate service in the coming months.
