Reviews From google play store

Worst experience for now. Whenever I am trying to download of low quality, it shows that it will download at 81 MB. Please change the quality. At first, I was able toh download video at low quality in 23 or 30 MB. But now, if in low quality it will consume so much, then for other videos there will be no data left. Please, solve this issue. It's really the worst experience for me.. At first, I loved this app, but for now I am just hating this. I am not able to see my favourite serials.

All downloads expiring very fast. Not staying as mentioned in Hotstar. In TV series like Chernobyl there are subtitles missing in some episodes. Totally unfair. Very much disappointed. Don't steal our money with your fake advertisements. Extremely poor in settings. No proper settings feature available. I am very much irritated.

The amount of ads that you've put in between videos is just ridiculous!! Even though I have a VIP subscription I have to watch soo many ads and that 90 sec ones!! What a horrible experience. In a 10 min video there are 2-3 ads of 60-90 secs!! That's crazy

The app takes forever to load its home screen. and no, it is not due to network issue. all other streaming apps work fine. even hotstar web works through chrome browser. But the app won't load. i downloaded some movies due to this problem. but the app won't even load the home page to the point to select downloads from menu. fix this. i didn't pay for premium for this

I've been a user of this app ever since it was launched and right now, I have a very hard time streaming videos - an error pops up HP 4030 which I have no clue what exactly it is. Can someone guide me and tell me what that means? It was perfectly fine til this came out - I use TurboVPN to access it coz I don't live in India but even while I was in India, I got the same error but later on, it works. Now, my location is India but it really stopped working.

Sir we we are using your app since 1 year. When we use to download any video the MB used by it was 20-30. But when when we updated the app yesterday from that moment the download takes minimum 70-80 in low also. Sir please solve our problem. 1. Would it will continue with taking this much data ? 2. If no, then please reply my question and solve it. THANK YOU

I don't know if this is due a recent update, but the app will no longer open. The loading wheel keeps spinning and the home screen won't load at all. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, also tried clearing the cache/local data, but none of this helped. I can no longer watch Hotstar on my Android TV. Can you please help? Thanks!

I have been using hotstar since many years and was in love with this app. But now what happened to it. Why its using so much of internet. I just watched for 4 hour on hotstar that too in low quality and my 1.5 gb data just finished like that. Earlier i used to watch full day and and still have some data at the wnd of day. Please fix this issue

Stream interruption..!!...folks never make the mistake of subscribing to hotstar premium ..It's been two years, and the app doesn't seem to show any improvement when it comes to user's experience. Not only is the app slow but I have never ever watched a video that doesn't lag on hotstar. I deeply regret subscribing for the Premium pack. Thank you Wang

It's a horrible app. Even being a premium member, the experience is terrible. There is no dark mode for amoled screens and for comfortable night viewing. There is common no setting menu. We can't stop auto play of videos in news menu. I still have to watch ads during IPL even after I've spent a premium amount. It feels like I'm stuck with this app and subscription. Edit: Even after months of complaint no response or resolution. Atleast bring the dark mode and landscape mode for god's sake.

Latest episodes of English TV shows are always released very very late. It seems like a waste of money to pay for their premium service when people who watch from illegal sources spoil the episode for you. Its always been happening for months now and they always cite "technical difficulties" as the reason. Not even close to the other OTT platforms. Production houses and foreign networks are making a huge mistake by choosing them as their streaming partners in India.

I think the developer forget this app after making it. They never solve bugs. And most of the problem with seeing ads , that are irritating. After every 5 minute shows 90 seconds of ads. We are not here to watching your ads. I suggest to you , change your app name from 'Hotstar' to 'Addstar'. You gives priority of loading ads, after that the videos not playing. That take too much data.This app provides wrostever experience. You created 2 type of subscription. That are not value for money.

Great app. I've been watching all my series in this regularly. However since a couple of days I've not been able to watch any newly updated episode. The app crashes or hangs as soon as I click on the episode I want to watch. Please look into it as I do not wish to miss any new updates. Otherwise, it's a great app and has been running very smoothly.

I am a very old user. I have been using this app since a long time. But recently there seems to be an issue with the video. When i play the video, there is absolutely nothing on the screen... No sound no video no nothing. The subtitles keep on working though.. pls look into the matter.. otherwise you'll lose an user.. i request you

Did you guys tested before publishing latest version to public users , why I am telling one good feature that you guys included in app , but you know it's not working most of the time specially when I m connected to web browser. Video quality has been set to High but it's actually showing low quality video hazy video which is totally embracing. Although I have premium subscription in Hotstar. I don't think this is very useful feature that you guys given to us . Check before deploy to production.

Everything is good in hotstar, except it's viewing screen issue for Cricket matches. My phone is Redmi k 20 pro, and when I view match in full view mode screen got cutted down from upside and downside. Hotstar can't allow to take screenshots otherwise I would attached screenshots too. This problem is coming after last 2 updates of hotstar. Please resolve this problem as soon as possible. Otherwise people will move from hotstar to Jio cricket where they can see full picture.

Alot of ads even though you buy a vip subscription. The ads are also non skippable and irritating as you have to watch an entire 70 to 90 seconds ad to continue watching even after paying so much. I surely won't buy a subscription again just because of the ads. Sometimes you watch a video for 30 seconds and then you might skip ahead, but if the ad lies in between then you will have to watch the entire ad for gods sake. The experience was worst. Please remove the ads or at make them skippable

Hotstar has to be the shittiest streaming platform there ever is. Even when the picture-in-picture mode is on the Hotstar app on my phone, it doesn't play in the background like Netflix or Prime Video. The subtitles never work in the downloaded videos. Why are you charging so much money when you cannot fix these basic things?

Lot of bugs with the new update. Videos getting struck in between for quite a lot of time, making video watching experience a irritating one and also I couldn't change commentary language for cricket as I choose whatever language it plays commentary in telugu. Over all this new update sucks and irritating and I don't know how Q&A team allowed this update to get released without checking. (Especially Bigg Boss 3shows)

It's very good app. It is easy to use. Also the info of movie/show is good. Plus this app also work with android tv. It always shows us every episode which have we missed..... At last I would say that whoever had written any bad reviews he is totally mad or his/her network is less

The app is worst, the people who have developed does not know how to solve bugs. I have taken both premium and VIP..but I cannot access both at the same time..I login with either phone or email to access it differently..And even after I login, I am not able to watch the Indian content in india itself..the app says "the content is not available in your region"..what kind of joke is that..I have tried watching in app or mobile browser even wrote a query to hotstar and searched on google as well

My experience is good in this app but there is one show (dil dosti dance) which don't have full episodes on this app .There is one-third episodes on this app of this serial .And I want to see full episodes of this serial. If you uploaded all the episodes of this show then I will give you five star rates for this app.

Thw worst app I ever saw in my life everytime whenever I see any thing on it first of all ad comes my question is that what is the need of ads what you get from showing the ads to the people tell me and second is that when you are already having hotstar premium then what is the need of having hotstar VIP tell and answer me . Who ever is reading this comment please I request that don't download this app it is the worst app filled with too many ads

Its v sad only coz of the adds. Whats the point of paying for an app to watch adds every 2 mins. In a 20mins serial there are 10 adds. Then why should we buy the app. It's so annoying same adds plus 60 to 140 seconds. Every 2 mins an add. Its terrible.. we shud watch serials on TV than on hot star. And you cant even skip the add after a few seconds. Pls do sumthn about it. Thanks..

Worst app ever, It can't even draw internet from the serever to play match. While using this app it looks like that my internet is not working while My internet is giving me 5 mb/s speed in YouTube and 0 kb/s in hotstar. And it's not just the first time I have been facing this issue. I think this issue is there trademark.

Need to improve UI for searching and filtering contents. Please include more options to sort and filter content. Its difficuilt to find new content like regional films.Providing latest uploaded for each categories instead of just popular will be good. A more customizable UI will bring in more users as sometimes its frustrating and time consuming to choose a content..

I'm a VIP member and I had to sit through 40 second ads while watching videos and miss few seconds of football due to ads. If you had told me that I'd have to sit through ads even after I pay you, I'd never have opted for a membership.

After paying a premium amount for my account just so i could access the premium content...its disappointing to only realise that all the content tagged premium doesnt offer a seemless experience...every video tagged under premium irrespective of the series or season flickers soo much that it hurts the eye n is very difficult to watch. Would request the hotstar team to look into this and get it fixed ASAP.

I have given only 2 stars because hotstar's video quality is good but in my smart TV (sony) I installed it . It work good for some months but after few months there is a bug in it I start a serial the video is started but the audio is not started it there is no voice in the serial . I request to hotstar team that fix this pls .

If I have a zero stars option I will give that rating only. After paying amount for vip I have to bear with adds (40 seconds everytime) and after completion of add ( without skip option) sound unsync with the video. Even free video streaming apps are providing small adds with skip after 10 or 15 seconds and perfect audio in sync with video....

M extremely disappointed with this app now. Previously i was happy with bcoz i can put all my serial's on download and it will get it done also high quality mb was like 60 n 70mb was happy with it.. But now suddenly it become 250mb 300mb and its not getting downloaded n always comes FAILED ERROR AND I CAN’T PUT ALL MY SERIALS ON DOWNLOAD ALL GOT FAILED AFTER FEW TIME...... REALLY DISAPPOINTED WANT REFER ANYONE.

Enjoyed the App alot and took the premium subscription but from last month the videos keeps pausing autometically when treamed through chromecast and restart with 20/40 secs jump. Seems like the show keeps running but the video is paused. And this is not the live shows.. Team please take care of this or else it becomes really frustating sometimes when u r waitching ur fav shows and this happened..

Hello sir, I am hotstar VIP member When i see ind vs SA live test match and want to see key moments then it always show 4-5 second forward of key moment This is very disaapointing. Please solve this problem in your next update. For example - if some one out and i want to see key moment of out so it will start from when batsman going to pavilion instead from the ball on which batsman got out...... Please slove it Thanks, Nishant agarwal

Worst app, i will never recommend anyone to buy the subscription of this app bcoz there is lots of add after the subscription also. If u r watching video of 30 mins then there is 15 mint of adds and that is so irritating. If we r going to see that much of adds after buying the subscription then what's the meaning of subscription we can watch all those drama, news on tv or on other site also. I m so dissappointed with the app

It is a very entertaining app and good but I dont know why are you playing a 90 second ads , I am not able to watch full vedio clearly, When i forwarded the vedio 90, 70 ads were playing automatically And why aren't you providing the skip ad option and iam watching one-fourth ads in a vedio and apart from this iam satisfied in watching my favourite shows from your app Please work on that providing "skip ad" option

Facing big issue in app as since yesterday whenever trying to watch Ind-SA match there is audio problem. Yesterday it automatically setting Hindi commentary and there was no Audio changing option and today automatically setting South Indian audio and even if I am again and again selecting English audio while watching highlights, the audio is setting to South India audio only. Please fix the issue urgently.

Premium content was not working on my Blaupunkt android TV earlier. Raised the matter with the TV manufacturer and after the latest update. Its working. However, there's now no way to pause, fast forward or rewind playback. Only skip function works. Still happy with Hotstar.

It is one of the most irritated and frustrated app i have ever used in my life. Yesterday i have downloaded two episodes of some show, and now it is showing that your downloaded videos has been deleted. I mean what the hell is this whats wrong with this app. This is really very annoying. 😠😠

What's premium about your service anyway? 1. My watchlist keeps mysteriously disappearing. 2. Random video+audio previews start playing while browsing. 3. No SETTINGS in the app! Where are the options to: - disable autoplay - set streaming/download quality - stream/download on WiFi/Data These are bare minimum.. Netflix/Amazon added them years ago. * WON'T be renewing my plan * High time you start DISCLOSING real QUANTIFIABLE info in release notes instead of a lame 'added awesome experiences'.

They are bloody scammers. Dont know value of money. The VIP feature is just a scam. How many ads will they keep ranging from 15s to bloody 90s. Are we fools to watch in app or what when it is the same ad time in TV. I understand you have to keep ads but it doesn't mean you exploit by having 90s ad . Worst app experience for video watching. If you have some remorse you can reduce the length of ad . #Prime for the win #netflixisgod

I have taken the premium membership for a year. Now its not even logging in, with email . And the phone number they are asking is not even mine.. I have always logged in with id and password. You should include options of sending your passcode to email Id. Or include some more options..

Since last few weeks Hotstar Chromecast casting is almost always hanging. I paid for premium membership but if I can't consistently cast the screen on my TV using Chromecast why should I continue? Please fix this issue at the earliest. All premium programs when cast hang or get stuck after a couple of minutes.

Not much new movies is getting added to the list. We do not have regional movies added. If added also the voice is dubbed. There should be option for both. Sports highlights always play's in hindi we should get choice to choose the language.

While watching live match there is option of key moments but when we clicked the things have been already happened. The only we watched is advertisement. So i would like to request to hotstar to arrange key moments at right time i.e just to be happened not after. If you solve it i will give better rating in future. Thank you

(THIS IS A REVIVE AFTER USING HOTSTAR FOR 6 MONTHS)Well, hotstat has covered prettymuch everything, but i think its not of any use, beacause so many of indians depend on mobile data and an average indian may have 1.5 GB data per day, this 1.5 GB of data can be exhausted in just 1.5 hour that too on just on medium quality(definitly not HD). Hotstar also cant be used by two or more accounts simultaneously. So with all these disadvantages(despite disney coming)i dont think hotstar worth 1000/year

Now another problem, HOTSTAR never ceases to disappoint. Earlier they were showing football highlights for live F1. Now, I wanted to watch test highlights of India vs South Africa in English and they are showing me highlights and commentary in TAMIL, KANNADA, and all other languages other than English, I mean this is ridiculous. I don't have anything against any of these languages but the problem is that I don't speak and understand any South Indian languages.

For the last few weeks the download sizes of the shows have increased Dramatically. Star plus shows which used to be 24 MB in low res are now between 35 MB going up to 100 MB +. I request you to please look into this matter urgently. I am watching the shows on hotstar app and not on any other devices or thru any other apps

Stream is good but very bad in downloading.App takes too much time in downloading and stops downloading and i need to restart the app to resume the download and also takes too much data extra on redmi k20 pro. I am an Hotstar VIP coustomer and i am not happy with the service.

The video keeps on pausing and stops buffering and it's getting a little too annoying for me. So if you want me to renew my subscription when the time comes fix the problem. P.s. my browsing speed is really good.

The update is worse I can't choose the language while watching highlights for Ind vs SA. It is playing based on location. It would look better with option to choose the language. Even though I have check the English language it keeps on Playing in local language for me it's Telugu.

It doesn't allow me to watch anything on my smart TV as it say we need vip subscription were as I can watch cricket match in my Mobile without any problem. kindly look into it as we can watch normal shows, live cricket match in smart TV without any subscription. There should be only subscription for the web series

How have these changes been made? Ago, Diya aur Baati show, if you watch any episode, it used to have video quality low,medium and high but now low and medium only comes and low had 25 MB download, now low 83- 87 MB download. Please change it to the previous one. THANK YOU

I've been having issues with the app for past couple off week. The videos stutter and don't play smoothly. Everything is very jerky. I don't think it's a speed issue, coz other streaming apps work fine. If it helps, I am using Nokia 6.1

Video gets stucked randomly and plays in small window on a corner even after updating the app there is no improvement , it's quite irritating, earlier there was no such problem what is happening with this app first ad now this to watch a 25 minute show you have to waste about 40 minutes DISAPPOINTING

It is a good app and has good contents, but Why do I have pay for VIP or Premium Membership, if you are going to interrupt with Advertisement for all contents. It is fine for free viewers but, for Members too!! It is irritating. Neither Amazon Prime or Netflix does so!!

Hot star app has lot of bugs in app. 1.When casting the app to smart TV ,the pictures get blurred 2.Even though I changed audio language to English but still audio language is telugu 3.Hotstar VIP subscription if used by 2 users also we get errors opening VIP video saying that the video is already opened by other user but that is not possible

Slow loading of channels . Settings are not found to control streaming quality.Most important is being a VIP membership why I am getting very frequent ads.This is disgusting. How to set streaming quality could be auto,medium or high these settings are not found.This app is installed on my Tablet. Some add's sound is very high and can damage eardrum. Must be noted and control the add's volume.

It's an amazing app but the video quality and the fact that it hangs sometimes makes it bad premise I've been using it since a long time allows me to watch all serials. Pls try to remove the VIP thing as I have to watch the episode the other day that makes it useless. Pls work on it

App sucks big time. When I fast forward a video, it gets rewinded instead. Audio and video is not synching at all. Above all, I'm not able to enjoy my VIP membership since the video wouldn't load even after trying 1000 times. Frustrated and fed up !!

I appreciate your service but before updating hotstar i required less data what i mean is i watched 6-7 episodes of doctor who i required nearly 400 mb on low quality. Today i updated hotstar and i just watched 1 episode just a single episode in same low quality but i got charged with 296mbs ? I checked everything there was no other process running on my device. There is no sign of data loss by any other applications or services in my data usage. What happened? Can you reply me plz.....

I don't even like the interface of the app & in full screen mode I don't even know why a white line is coming below can this be is irritating to watch video...& Please try to adjust the substitles also there should be some options to re arrange or atleast put subtitles above the picture

I was unable to play any video in the hotstar. When ever I press play button again it turns into pause mode. I can't play any kind of video. If I forwarded it just forwards and still in pause mode but I couldn't see any video playing.

The app is the worse streaming application. I am paid customer and all I get is full of ads and scrolls below and I can't watch a match properly. Better to beg for money than making it in this way. A big -10000 for this application and the people behind it

At first it was working gud, recently having lots of issue, screen is getting stuck only audio is going on, even though after having gud internet connection it takes ages to load and sometimes I stopped watching because of getting bored of waiting, seriously disappointing.

I wanna tell that this is disgusting ! nowadays in hotstar sound is only not coming sound is coming only for ads not for videos how can we watch the videos without sound and ADS nowadays it has become 80 to 90 min why shall i see stupid advertisements in youtube also we have an option to skip ads but here no first it was ok 28 to 30 sec but nowadays it has become 80 to 90 sec what the hell!

i am watching three serials and after the reset of my smart tv in hotstar when i am start watching my serials there was no sound in only my serials and when i checked to verify that in other serials also there was problem but in others there was no problem in other serials you only stopped the sound of my serials. means that if we do not get premium or vip so would do like this.

Streaming experience is streaming is not smooth in peak hours. Although available content is good,It almost negate by worst app experience You guys can improve on customer support.only communication is through email. After facing video playback issue which I send email to customer support but their reply isn't helped. After searching the internet finds out clearing catch and restart the phone then only videos are playing and so many already faced the problem.

Love the app and all.But seriously?? Why are there so many ads. I know u guys are making a lot of money through but two ads in between every episode and that too for 80 or 90 seconds is bit too much

Really bad app. It starts playing a video in some random language and won't change the language even if there are options. This has happened so many times now. The videos don't load well. It opens new window for every video which is a nightmare. Overall terrible experience. Would not recommend.

Ads r very lenghty there r connection issues i face them very much i bought hotstar premium but i think it is useless to buy b'coz not everyone has access to high speed data quality is very poor on low and good and video suddenly stops downloading n video is not downloading when i am on other app or when my screen is off

Hotstar should add the feature of signing out of all devices available so that people dont misuse the premium account. As at times you have to provide someone your account and then it gets misused till eternity, you cant force them to sign out too.

When ever i choose to select my language which is kannada after selecting, later it automatically turns to Telugu. I don't know why?just resolve this problem as soon as possible. Other than this apps runs well.

Watching cricket anytime anywhere is great with it just an issue not able to use my full screen display as it zoomed in and the scores are hidden which is not good to watch on . Please give an update for watching on big notch display phones so that no content is hidden while using the full display

Its too good.. . Please fix the key moment features, it shows the video which is already happened already, & thats why we need to wait for the reply to watch that moment. Thats very irritating. Thanks

Experience is undescribable. Movies, serials and news are not getting played. Only sports is getting played in the app. If we want to see other than sports, internet will stop working.

No option to Sign out from all devices : my mobile was lost, while i signed out/change password from all the apps, same cannot be do on Hotstar, even after changing password someone is watching/downloading the premium content. Even after writing at customer support no reply was provided

Absolutely thrashworthy and unintuitive UI. Pls work on it and try to make it smooth and comfortable. The UI elements are not properly arranged. The episodes are here and there and its too untidy. And this green accent is annoying.

Sorry to say this. I am uninstalling this app now. Because my phone gets restarted everytime after the end of each ad.. Moreover i feel tat the time of each ad to be reduced or skip option to be enabled..

Resolution of videos are not upto the mark 😥😥😥😥 even if i choose high resolution!!!! Please at least 720p resolution we can expect if anyone choose high resolution videos or movies or web series, CAN'T WE ????????????????????????????????

What is it with this new wierd issue? When i watch the highlight of cricket, it's no more available and categorised in different languages. Sometimes it opens in tamil sometimes in Hindi. I'm not able to play it in English.

Overall it is a nice app, but you are increasing its add duration time day by day!!!! Last time it was 120 sec that also for a 20 min show.....This is unbearable!!!!

Syncing errors PI-1 NAS... this is what I have been seeing since 2 days on my LED TV... these errors are seen only when we are watching STAR MAA SERIALS... play back errors... being a premium member I am facing these issues... please resolve

Very expensive subscription 1 Rs/day (365Rs/annual) you should make it cheaper & too much ads. Already you are earning from ads...who will prefer think first nowdays Along with any 90 day recharge or more prepaid plan Tv app subscription is free. Who will prefer Hotstar ? Example. Jio - jio tv (live tv) hotstar not live at all Airtel - airtel Tv (live) Who will subscribe in 365 Rs annual ? I will recharge my number & can see free on other apps as complimentary service they are giving....

My overall experience with it is good but from yesterday night hotstar isn't loading on my phone it do not mean that my net is slow. It is well and fabulous and only hotstar is not loading rest of the apps are well working please help I am unable to watch my favourite serials

Even if you are premium member, there is no use. They provide only old movies. There is no new movies in there except that u can watch serials before they air. It's really bad

Everything is ok but the downloading speed of videos is very slow even though I have a good internet connection.... I think your servers are slow. And there is no subtitles shown in the downloaded video, please add it.

Got premium membership. Tried streaming the bigg boss show. Able to cast it to Chromecast. But no media controls to rewind or fast-forward. It stays in will shortly stream. But in mobile when scrolled nearly to 40 mins the show starts. Worst app. False promises.

Key moments in Cricket stream is the poorest experience. On click to watch a wicket , you get to see only batsmen walking back followed by 6 advertisments continuously. So poor for an app to be like this. Developers are hearing this? Worst user experience.

Lot of bugs. When I try to play a video it stucks, pauses and buffer, Even though the internet connection is fast. If I select English as audio language in cricket it plays Telugu. Worst app

No subtitle on downloaded videos after recent update. Please fix it. Offline subtitle aren't available for Game of thrones, season 3,episode 3. Please provide subtitle for old episodes as well.

I would have given 5 for the earlier version but these days adds are too annoying. It's more like watching something on TV. Adds these days lasts for more than a minute which is why I even stop watching stuff on hotstar these days.

A lot of Ads are being Showing that makes so irritating and annoying. We are Paying to jio for the data and after that all apps started earning by making premium memberships and Middle income families who can't afford to pay you are showing Long lasting Ads. So Annoying..

Making the app better is fine, but releasing the updates everyday doesn't feel good... release the updates once in a month or atleast once in two weeks and not in everyday.. whenever i open the app it asks me to update which i dont feel good

What's the bloody problem with this app now.. It's using too much data to download a file.. Really pathetic and disappointing too.. If it's 100mb file it's eating double than that.. I don't know how you guys gonna fix this problem..

One small suggestion.please have a setting to select a video quality for all the of now if i want to select medium quality instead of auto on all the videos,ive to select it everytime an episode changes.and also please have a little more quality contents.which everyone would love to enjoy.

All premium content can be downloaded only once. This is very bad service. Even after making payment for premium subscription, we are not able to download the videos more than once. This needs to be updated.

Really great app for streaming sports and cricket but one option I would like you guys to add a option to go back and forth in the stream with a 30 sec option or marker on video length I want to watch as per my convenience but currently there is no option for that back then there used to be option for that

Lot of time hangs and also the display pixels are very poor. Even in HD picture has seperated pixels. It doesnt work properly on firestick as well. Full screen issue also sometimes.

Worst app..specially its VIP feature..just waste of money. After getting VIP you will only see ads not the content. They bring VIP concept just to make people fool and to force them to either watch ads only or to subscribe to there most costly product called premium.

Why Hotstar is taking much more data for downloading daily episodes now ????? Earlier it was approx 50MB for one episode of 21 minutes, but now it is increased to 270MB approx. Kindly get attention to this issue as soon as possible.
