Reviews From google play store

The new update has removed the ability rewind back to any point of the match in live football matches. Now you can only watch it live or watch the desginated highlight points (which again are only for the bigger matches) . The fact that you could go back and watch the match from any time was the one standout feature of Hotstar and for some reason they've decided to remove it. I wish i could uninstall this particular update.


When I watch live football matches without signing in it works absolutely fine. As soon as I get VIP and log in cannot watch it even for five seconds without lag or the frames stuttering. To add to it there are ads for VIP when all I want to see is the premier league on weekends and am not interested in any other content on the app. Please process refund as it is a terrible experience even after paying.


I have a VIP subscription and you are showing to much ads in the content. Its very irritating to watching repeated advertisement. I think this app makers are greedy thats why they are showing too much ads. Hotstar is only 1 star aaplication just because of too much ads. I suggesting you when you are satisfy to the customer than after you will succeed in your ambition. Just think on it.


Edit 8: 1. Bad video quality. Even at high setting, a video which should have been at 1080p is shown at 480p :(. 2. Download speed is very slow. 3. Download failures, due to which I have lost over 10.8 GB in downloads. A very bad "Download Manager". 4. No full HD stream for matches.Very bad 5. Even highlights are not allowed on a browser, without logging in. Why? BCCI should intervene.


What is this DR 1100 error now? Cant you guys get these bugs fixed? Good content, aweful app compared to other online streaming apps like Netflix and Amazon Prime. Browsing interface is terrible, Doesnt have a genre wise seggregation, Download expire in 48 hrs. ( This is got to be a joke, i mean how does it matter till your membership doesnt expire).


Even though the content is good, the app is computer friendly and not easy to use on Roku and Android TV devices. I generally watch TV9 and Republic News channels, but you always have to use search function to look for these app and play. There should be a way to choose you favourite app or the app needs an overhaul to make it Remote Friendly where we have very few buttons to play with.


I have a hotstar premium account, but I still can't download premium videos even though I can watch those videos. While trying to download the videos I'm being automatically redirected to premium payment gateway. Morever, when I continue with the payment gateway, it reaches a deadend stating that I already have hotstar premium. Such a horrible app, I regret taking an annual membership in advance. There doesn't even seem to be a proper customer complaints redressal forum.


It was initially good and I enjoyed the shows, but after the recent update, every time I open the app it only shows up as "Oops, something went wrong. Try again later!" It's been 3 days and I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app. No luck. Don't know what exactly the issue is or when it will get fixed.


After the last update, during the time of playing any movie or anything else the screen itself divides into two sections. A small one and a large one, the movie is kept on playing on the smaller part but the larger part becomes hazy . Please fix this issue as soon as possible in the upcoming update.


All in all it's best of them all... But hotstar team the quality adjust feature isn't working like in previous version.. there is literally no difference between high and low quality and especially high and medium.. please look after that... Low quality must be there and work properly as currently not doing, so that less data is consumed..


Audio and Video quality is pretty bad compared to other OTT providers like Amazon Prime Video or Netflix. The Bitrate seems very low and 1080p doesn't look like 1080p when compared to other OTT Platforms. I played it on Firestick and OnePlus 7 on 250 Mbps and even iPhone the picture and audio quality is very pathetic. On Firestick, I have re-installed the app multiple times but the content I play stucks a lot even on Low Bitrate. Hope Disney+ is better and launch as a separate service.


the videos sometimes do not work and show that the video will start in 6s but never work and have to uninstall and reinstall the app to watch the episode. Also they say the tv shows will be updated in the app by 6 AM for vip members but they never give it by 6 AM. Sometimes they give it in the afternoon. This is really disappointing


I'm very disappointed with this app, the reason is.....while watching a old episodes on this app, the picture quality is much bad while watching it..... but t when I set quality at high it still shows a bad quality.....my internet speed is also good,.....it gives good response to f searching and more.....but the problem is quality of video when watching online. plz improve your service.


I am a Premium account holder in the hotstar app. I used to love watching live matches in it since i can rewind to the crucial moments of the match. But now with the new update i cant use that feature anymore. Please bring back the feature to rewind into important match moments, during a live cricket stream. Thank you


I have a Cloudwalker tv, iam able to watch the Hindi movies but when it comes to prime content despite having paid subscription the content doesn't play and displays the message that your device is rooted. While on mobile I can watch any content uninterrupted. Please guide how to resolve the issue of rooting.


Collection is good but customer service is worst rather I should say there is no customer service at all. I subscribed to its VIP plan but suddenly it was stopped. I kept emailing the team a number of times but there was no response even a single time. Very bad experience.


Hey kindly work on your live football match preview like @sonylivindia give a proper score card,there one can watch highlights of imp moment of the match in live match, and proper substitution key moments etc are also elaborated by them so learn something from them.


Video quality is not good for tamil language and also some serials are missing like shivam. For mahabharatam serial it is available in hd for hindi language while the video quality is very poor in tamil language. Moreover no option to delete viewed history. Instead of paying for this app it is better to watch the show in torrent.


I love the quality of streaming content, but ads are horrible even in paid subscription. I use hotstar on my android tv and many times ad comes up when streaming and it keeps repeating itself 2-3 times and then another ad of same company showes up and it also keeps repeating. I have to press back button on mobile and launch my show to see the actual streaming content. Also stop advertising bloody gambling game ads like Rummy which are banned in real world. How can playing online is legal?


While scrolling down the seasons and episodes fastly they are going to first episode of that season it makes a great problem and in past the seasons are kept line wise it is very easy to scroll very useful. This time I am not satisfied with the update and make an English subtitles


It's is the best entertainment app of India but the app contains too much ads, it's very hard to skip a part of video of shows because every 3 to 4 minutes gap there are ads. Even after taking subscription of Hotstar premium and Hotstar VIP, the annoying ads are problematic for me. Please fix it or do something.


Too many adds of duration about 150 seconds duration at least 3 times in twenty minutes show even after paying. What's the difference between television and hot star then? Its irritating to watch the same adds for long duration again n again. Try to reduce the add duration or add skip to the adds.


i paid for premium account, then after few days i logged out from it, now when I'm logging in its showing no premium account membership...help !!! what the hell is wrong with this app Today again i updated the app n re-log in into my account and its saying i dont have premium membership.... Kindly do something about it.


It's not working at all after update , not even a single video is playing, it shows error while I try to download any video. What is the benifit of taking paid membership if you can't watch any content on this application?


Completely worst app,,,why we have to pay yearly subscription charge to watching live channels?? Others app are not taking any subscription charge for watching live channels,,,,... completely ridiculous and irritating 😠😡 and now I'm going to uninstall this annoying app 😠..


Big Security concern! I have a premiun account linked to my mobile number. I have doubts about my account being misused or hacked. I am unable to reset password. On checking i realized, Hotstar only allows password change for account linked to email id. So i am unable to reset the password for account linked to mobile number. So disadvantages 1) Cannot link email account and mobile number to same account 2) There is no option to reset password for account linked to mobile number 3) There is no option to logout from all devices as well. This is a huge security concern Hence the rating.


App is very good for desktop and mobile version but not looking good for SMART TV . I am using hot star in my smart TV and unable to scroll by remote control. It previous version was good for SMART TV but after upgrade it's totally waste my time. Hotstar team please make changes for smart TV. Thanks


It used to be a great app until they decided to remove seek bar from live football games as well as the live highlights right below it. Those features made Hotstar stand out. I for one wouldn't be renewing.


While watching cricket when we want to go to specific event..like wicket fallen...when you click on that...The match starts after the wicket fallen...then what is the use of on cliking on an event when you are able to watch that specific event...Neither they have any rewind or forward option...Useless app...Stupid Design


Apart from minor streaming issues ..The app works perfectly fine. However The user based recommendations needs revamping.comparing to youtube and prime video..Hotstar lags way behind. Also some times the videos are not added in continue watching section and one has to manually search it to play further.


I've paid for a premium subscription, and I feel duped. Why is the video buffering so trash even if my internet speed is close to 100 Mbps? Why doesn't the app take any regard to the video quality I've selected and renders the video at a God awful 144pi? Waste of my money, not going to resubscribe.


I hate the fact that Hotstar gets stuck every time I cast something on Google. Without Chromecast, it works fine. The video quality is extremely poor on Chromecast and it gets stuck many times. Fix this and I'll rate the app 5 stars


The UI has to be made way better. It is different on different devices. *Needs option to block certain programs *Should be able to log out of all devices *Should be password protected instead of just OTP authentication


After the last two or three updates it always says pl-100 error for the new free videos on my lenovo k3 note... I could only be able to view the free videos after three or four days... If u cant support the low end devices kindly let us know so thatwe dont waste our time using your app... This is really frustrating...


Worst Worst app, it doesn't have option to edit their account details, like name, phone number first name, last name, date of birth. These are the basic details for any member. Stupid developers and stupid innovator. Every one are stupid who involved in developing this app.


I have a vip A/C in hotstar app.While watching movie on hotstar so irrititing(reason below explained) to me. Finally, After using this app I choose to 1⭐ One of the main reason advertisement. Eg: If you want to watch a movie in hotstar app.you have to spent extra 30m i.e. unskipped advertisements along with movie time suppose movie time 2:40hr(movie) plus 30m(Ads)-While watching movie Every 15-20m completion of movie getting Ads from starting to end of the movie(almost 15-20 ads must watch)


In my 100 Mbps connection, it takes ages to start the actual video to play .. I have set video quality to high still this app has its own brains to degrade the quality of streaming .. I am not sure why developers are being paid the salary which they are getting in hotstar


Chor app Deducted money from my account for subscription and now it's says you it's unsuccessful. Not even able to login through mobile number which i did initially. Waste of money and time , horrible experience.


The app is not working with wifi in any of my devices like phone or Android TV i don't know why but it always keeps loading..i can't watch any of the shows or movies..but when i switch to mobile data the app works fine..i have 100Mbps wifi connection.


The worst experience was that of taking membership, because even after taking membership, watching a movie at least 5-6 times a day shows advertising and that too for 40 seconds. If those people do this in the cinema hall, then what will be your condition?


I'm Premium user , there is a lot of restrictions on downloads like we can only downloads 5 movies or shows at a time. And also the validity is 7 days. Thats so much irritating. I don't think i renew my premium subscription after this.


Being a premium user I can't open hostar on my redmi 4 phone . Videos are not playing. I sent feedback but nothing happened. It happened after updating MIUI 11 ( mi software update) . Any solution ????


There are repeated additions to this and it does not even close, the same IDs are seen which are seen and I am very bad experience, in this we have difficulty in watching our episodes.


Filter options is really very bad. When you try searching for Kannada movies it will list everything related to Kannada. Unable to search what you want. I tried searching for Telugu movies it listed everything and I am not sure which one is movie and which one is Serial


I am using Hotstar in china. The issue is the servers dont work in China and if i use VPN then the app says to switch off the VPN. Kindly provide some way to use it here in China. I have paid for VIP subscription.


Very poor video quality on my Vivo V5s in this app. Inspite of a good network speed and turning to high quality in video settings, the quality of video is very low and not even worth watching.


Don't buy the premium. It will keep on buffering no matter what. Even if you have 20mbps or 50mbps or 100mbps or even a fiber connection for that matter, it will crash.


Consumes lot of data.. 35 mins of series (luther) episode consumes 900MB of data at normal quality of viewing.. Amazon prime is much better when it comes to data saving.. Definitely not renewing my hotstar subscription!!


The app is good but there is bug in app after new update. When I play video and started with medium quality and when I chane in high quality the quality is change in low. So please fix this bug.


Very bad experience. The video will not play at all. Once you excited the app, it is gone. You have to retry, retry and retry as hell. Not worth a single rupee subscription also. 😡


I'm a premium member and everytime I watch a match in it, firstly it lags and most of the times i have to refresh it to get it recovered and ended up losing the minutes.


Hi. Great app. The only issue I have is it's inability to auto rotate to landscape. Portrait mode is not really convenient.


This yes very good app for watching shows before TV. I have subscription of Rs 365 for year and I enjoyed it lot before TV as well as movies also because of long advertisement I give 4 star. ads disturbing lot.


Wrost app in terms of productivity. You can't minimise the player and browse other items in the app.and also even can't split the screen as well. Sometimes even in premium there are same repetitive advertising this is boaring. Bhai advertising do par boaring mat banao ki Banda app ki switch kr de..


Please add a feature to keep some shows (like Vaishno Devi) on top or we can make them favorite so that everyone and specially the old age people can find them easily and watch. Please implement this feature for Android Mobile and TV both.


Mostly works well, but the lack of a media session is annoying - can't use play/pause buttons. That and the quality settings sometimes stop working - High quality behaves like Auto instead and shows bad quality video.


downgraded this app to 1star rating. It does not have smooth continuous playback due to buffering. Even after downloading the movie it still plays the same. Solution was to open Hotstar website on chrome browser and play the movie then it's fine.


You guys suck. I bought Rs 299 pack of Premium for one month but you gave me VIP for 1 year. Now upgradation isn't happening and the app is getting hanged all the time. Fix it as soon as possible. My time is running out.


Till now the experience has been really bad. As an app the user interface is bad. The app does not cast most of the time. Also when it's clear there's internet the app says no internet


Worst recommendation system, Video quality automatically shifts even when one is selected. Play next button selects random previous episodes, not next. Looks like they have been having trouble with easy old data engineers.


It's really getting worst day by day. Its takes a lot to download and contains lot of ads while watching any show or movie it"s really irritating i don't know how this app gets 4.1 rating


From the previous update movies are Playing in a horrible aspect ratio and there is no pinch zoom feature to correct it, for example if my previous videos were playing in 70% of my screen area now they are covering only 40% .


After the recent update picture quality has reduced so low its not even clear at high picture quality... Very disappointing n so unsatisfied...pls work on it asap... We r paying for VIP package n such a low picture quality so inconvenient


This app is worst even after getting premier this app show so much ads that i got frustrated by it. That too one ad twice thrice..this is really frustrating.I request to hotstar team to please remove ads atleast for paid users this is not good.


Best app for watching best tv series like got,himym etc. But the two things about this app i dont like . It requires too much data for watching the videos and the other one is safety feature so the users are not able to take screenshots


When I started to watch it first episode was working properly when I go through the second episode I paid 365 for yearly plan and again started to watch the second one it is not showing properly it is reloading


Are you kidding me? Too many ads even after taking VIP account. One ad is fine, two might be okay three four five ads to watch a movie. Just don't be too curious to spin money.


Every time there is some issues when ever I try to open it then I uninstall n then again installed then app will start..... I took a membership also but due to this prob now no membership is there don't know why it's happening


This app are really poor. That's why This app mentioned that hindi language. I am mother thonge in Tamil language. However I should not understand in hindi Language. I feel bad this app. I have check in this app in setting language I have choice tamil and telugu but compulsory language hindi. I hate hindi language


Worst ever app Cannot forward, there is no preview during selection, no preview during moving the video forward, does not resume from where we left Shut down this app or get this stupid thing fixed.


I have a premium account and able to login and see things on my laptop. But when i am trying to login using same details in mobile app says this user not registered with us. I am out of Indai and I am stuck please help me.


I never write reviews but this app is such a waste of money that I had to. Imagine paying for an app only to see fuzzy quality and on top of that the app censors out words throughout the movie and warnings such as "smoking kills" throughout the movie. Better off watching movies on youtube with ads because not like the quality or viewing experience is any better.


There is a very good application we get to watch cricket live but there is a problem like 10 minutes 9:00 minutes 2 minutes runs. After that the sound stops automatically and the photo does not come.


Cricket highlights video clarity is low even at high quality. It initially starts with low clarity and then transitions to high quality after 5 minutes! . I have 100 Mbps net speed and your quality is really poor


It's not loading the homepage when I'm using Airtel 4g network. But it works well with my bsnl broadband very well. I checked my sim and also did a speedtest I'm getting 15mbps in downstream and 6mbps in upstream. Kindly fix this problem.


It worked well for the first few days and then I was not able to view any live content whatsoever. I was stuck with the repeat shows only.


I paid for vip account then after few days I logged out from it and now when I'm logging in its show no vip account membership...what the hell is going on what's wrong with this app..kindly do something about it


Sorry for this (3 stars)😠😠 Because when are seeing any movie , past episodes of any serial there are lots of annoying and unwanted advertisement appears.that is so annoying Plz make it sure to stop such type of things to be happend


Can't play video when I am on a call. All other video playing app like YouTube works when I am on call. Hotstar can't do a very basic thing like this. disappointed


This is the most amazing app I have used. It shows tv shows, movies,news and much more for free. It also shows us the tv shows before tv just for ₹365 per year. I Just Love This App!


This app literally consumes data like water. The streaming is not optimised. Compared to other apps, the data consumption per hour is too much.


Pls don't update this , im fed up of seeing ads , latest update make us not to see hw much is the duration of ad , I'm really fed up with the number of ads ,we can't even skip to any particular area of Any show without seeing ads


your ads have no botton to Skip or back. It's rubbish, I don't have do anything when ads menu is open.😠😡 Please solve it's, Otherwise everything is good 👌


It is just for a time pass. It is good but why does it stops after using twenty times. It creates many things like many cereals,movies,matches and many other things and etc.


I cannot able to watch full screen on Android TV box, Earlier I used to watch but after the latest update I cannot watch full screen. Is there is any solution to watch full screen on Android TV box?


This is worst app because simultaneously popup adds n advertisements are always occur.. Adds take soo much time to complete and adds will be repated even after 1 minute... This app is only for advertisements and popups.. Worst app


I think its a great app but some old shows which are really good are not in list and they have to be in the list. For me particular show is 26/12 which was on life ok channel.


The contents are great but i found few bugs on the new update. when i delete the download video its take to long to delete and the second one is while playing online video sometime its keep breaking its too irritating.


The app is very nice. But too much of ads disturbs you too much. Please reduce ads while watching. Or else it would have been great app for entertainment.


After updating the app it's not loading any single videos. Team should respond back to the customers. After 15 Nov 2019 release it's not loading videos.


This app is worst..... Now we have to do payment of VIP hotstar than only we can see new and latest episodes.... It is very bad...And if you want that people should give 5 stars than u should remove the payment of VIP hotstar..... It is my suggestion to you if u like my suggestion than please reply


I am premium account holder.Some times even i put the video quality as high,it is showing the video in low quality only (it has to buffer and load with high quality right....) .


While downloading is too slow, even having high internet speed, its too slow, i am using prime video and netflix which take 1 minute for 1 gb, i have to wait for 15 minutes for just 450 mb.


Worst app ever....cant see downloaded serials...whats being downloading the serials..and bot able to watch when m free..voot and ozee is better apps then hotstar...i have problem why i cant able to see downloaded serials ...fix this problem as early as possible


Whenever I try to connect with screen mirroring with my TV it won't support voices visible but video is not why this application won't support screen mirroring.


I purchased hotstar vip few months ago, but it's still asking me to pay $49.99 for subscription. Horrible experience. Kindly give a solution.


It keeps on crashing after 2 mins of use. Earlier used to work fine. I think it is the new version.


Worst app. Lots of add Even though purchasing app so much of add . They play each adds around 20 to 30 episodes in a single serial . In every break they play 3 mins of ads. All are repeated ads only Worst app Hate this app


How much add we have to see.... its a add machine!!!! Already paid for vip,then pay for internet charge, still we have to face so much adds.... its irritating.... please do some thing....


So many adv ... When ever I try to watch any live content (sports) it show me 5 - 10 min of long adv every time at start , so frustrating to watch this adv and waste time
