    The app experience is pathetic . The video keeps on freezing all the time and streaming is not at all smooth. Even after I download something the video does not seems to be smooth it keeps on getting interrupted after every 4-5 seconds. I'm facing this problem from past 3-4 months but even after 2-3 updates the app has not able to resolve this issue .

No IMDb ratings on movies.. it's a norm on all ott platforms.,do you want viewer's to go to external services to know about the quality of movie., .

Need to touch/active the screen every 2 seconds for a smooth flow. My app is updated and for the concerned's knowledge, I have tried playing with lower quality as well as on different Data plans. No help

    disney The content bus amazing. But the App sucks, the web portal sucks. It cannot maintain the high vidoe quality on 1 device at a time with a 20 Mbps WiFi. Netflix plays HDR content without lag on 5 Mbps. Watching it on laptop is nightmare. Same goes on Mobile/Tab App & also on Amazon Fire TV stick. Whats the point of having premium account when the video quality is as good as a VGA video output?

    movies Which genius in your app development team thought it would be a good idea to get rid of the 'save offline' feature? After the update I'm not able to download any files. That calls for a 1 star. Renders the app useless for me. Edit: this issue has not been resolved even after 3+ updates and a stern complaint on Twitter. I've lost all hope with the developers.

    stream Using it as a premium member, and what you get is third class screen quality, constantly hanging in between at the connection speed is 100 mbps. Android mobile, smart tv it works worse everywhere, it must be really difficult to develop such low performance everywhere, Even the smaller apps are doing way better, failed to understand why developers sleeping on it. So disappointing so disgusting. HOTSTAR DEVELOPERS ARE YOU SLEEPING???

    tamil I have Hotstar Premium subscription and I have to watch advertisements for each show. And those repeated ads are so irritating that I have stopped using this app. What's the use of buying that subscription if I still have to watch ads. It'll be fine if you give less contents in the premium subscription but don't force us to watch those ads. Have switched to the other live streaming apps and Amazon prime. Won't recommend this to anyone.

    Using this for my Samsung tv. This review is only based on the TV app. Content collection is huge. Major flaws: # Not all shows/movies have subtitles # Video quality is above average. # i don't think there is 1080p or 4k content. Bad for big tvs # there is no way you can change video clarity in tv app # Not able to see live channels in tv app. # Forwarding or rewinding is cumbersome, you cannot drag the seekbar ## If they resolve these issues, then hotstar would be the best among others.

    The newer latest version that has upgraded to Disney Plus style is not working at all. The app crashes despite clearing cache and reinstalling. The video speed feature is gone as one can watch at 1.5 or 2 or 3x. The feature to login with OTP doesn't work for me at signals doesn't come at my place and OTP doesn't come and also they don't have password support to login. They don't reply to the emails sent and also at Twitter they are not active & responsive. 1 star 🌟 till these aren't addressed.

    Pathetic app. Even the premium subscribers have to bear the brunt of annoying 20sec ads which is totally not cool. The quality of the video keeps on changing automatically even at the best internet speeds. The idea of a paid premium service gets killed by such experiences. Better stick to Netflix or Amazon Prime.

    Hotstar started on a good note by copying prime, but in March'20 it has hit a new low. Pathetic streaming consuming too much data. Even in that situation you have to see 7-8 ads in a 20 min TV show without an option to skip. Even YouTube is sensible enough to balance both the Data point & Ad feature. Hotstar you need to learn to balance, otherwise you will loose users faster than you will gain additional revenue.

    Pathetic!! Too much of advertisements and too long even if you are a VIP member. In a 20 min episode, there will be 3-4 break points and each time 3-4 advertisements of which each one is approximately 30 - 60 seconds and even longer. So, for a 20 min episode, you are forced to see for 25-30 min. Also, there is no option to skip those advertisements after 10-15 seconds. Disgusting!!! Remember, people dont play for such stupid useless advertisements

    The app is good in terms of the content. However since the month of January the mobile application is having too many issues. The video streaming is very erratic rather than being smooth. At times a particular episode starts automatically from the start in the middle of streaming. All the issues are in mobile application so please use this quarantine time and fix these issues.

    Why have you people removed live sports and movie channels. If we click on any sport channel it does not show live streaming . Only old highlight programs are available. Why? It works only if you have a jio or airtel sim because only these two have access to star channels not vodafone and idea. Shame on you . I subscribed hotstar vip only to watch sport channels.THIS NEW UPDATE HAS RUINED EVERYTHING. IT'S WORKING VERY WELL ON MY OTHER PHONE WITH THE OLDER VERSION.

    Bad. Slow as hell. Takes forever to load. Netflix works amazing while Hotstar barely works at all, AT THE SAME INTERNET SPEED. The selection isn't sorted well. Search options are nothing, compared to Netflix. There are no names of directors next to movies. The video play controls are infuriating. Also, not much quality queer content. If you search "gay" or "queer", nothing shows up at all. Wouldn't even give the 1 star if I could give less.

    The interface needs a lot of improvement if you have to compete with netflix and amazon prime video. And the following especially annoys me: 1) Inspite of choosing only english, I am still seeing hindi movies and tv serials in my recommendations. 2) The volume in news section is always on even if moving to news section and it automatically starts playing the video. 3) There are literally no settings linked to account, like langauge. 4) Option to hide various sections like news.

    Lots of problem are there with the app itself, there is no delete option even if full access is granted or if the premium membership is over.., another problem is while watching TV channels in hotstar live, most of them are not shown correctly as we see in TV and we cant even edit our account details (Username, Mobile Phone numbers, except passwords).... even when our subscription is over or fully subscribed....

I do love the content , so please take it as my honest opinion!!

Most of the disney content are 4k. 4k contents should be available to all as the number of Android tv users increases day by day. thats all!! bug report- incredibles 2 doesn't have English audio

    Good app, but too many ads means too many ads. Is this a social app or an advertisment box? If we are going to watch a 20mins video, long ads makes the video lengthy. So better to watch on tv. Realy disappointed. I wish they will solve it on next update or in any other way. At present i will give only 1 star.

    This review is for the Hotstar app on android,not the service.I have no complaints about the service/content, except for the blatant self censoring. The app has improved a lot but leaves more to be desired. The interface is still clunky and finding stuff to watch is still a task. Better sorting options similar to Netflix app would be a great improvement.

    Need Skip Intro button and optimised streaming, it buffers and gets pixelated even with high speed wifi connection if video is bring to forward. Thanks for the dark mode, it would be better if the dark color would been completely black. Need 1080p playback for Live matches. Please make the video player more sleek, subtitles a bit thin, these feel a bit clumsy sometimes. Please improve search results and add cast, director info of shows, movies.

Majority of the controls dont wprk most of the time. unlike the mobile app there's no option to change the video quality and most importantly the audio commentary while cricket matches are played. Update: the app is becoming bad to worse. No there's no option for a subtitle either in the TV app. How can you guys develop such an underdeveloped app.

    After the logo change now documentaries are being added to premium which was working with VIP in all regional languages. Better remove the VIP subscription and change it to single package as premium. Utter cheating and waste of subscription. This way they are trying to earn more asking users to subscribe for premium membership. Time for apps to rule than STB's. Future could be worse.

    today I can see there is a new feature kids safe mode which is good , but other issues still persist. 1) Only 5 downloads allowed even for premium customers, u cannot watch more in long journeys😣. 2) if by mistake you delete the downloaded episode then u can't download the same again upto 48hrs🤪 3) And the most important part for few users is that there is no option of watch history reset, you can remove from continue watching, but if someone clicks on the show the timeline is not reset.

    App is ok overall but lacks few important features, like my videos(previews) start playing automatically even on data and their is no setting menu in the app to change it to play on wifi only or don't play, and you guys are keep adding and removing Disney+ icon, personally I think separate Disney+ icon in the middle was great option and their is also no option to the search result to show only movies, shows, serials or documentaries, etc.

    I used to love watching arrowverse shows on the app but since I updated the app the latest episode aren't provided on the app. There seems to be some kinda error so it would be quite a favour of you to resolve . Besides this new content issue I have found hotstar to be a 5 star app so it would be a great help if you guys can resolve this.

    Just had a query regarding the app. I am a premium member, and i saw on 10th March that the Disney plus shows and movies were updated. However i can't see the Disney plus logo or the seperate tab anymore after the last update. Can't find shows like the Mandalorian anymore and the search has become really bad too. For example , if i search Captain America, only the movies which were present before the Disney plus update are shown and only if i open popular movies category i can see the others.

    I wish there was an option of less than 1. Till the time I hadn't subscribed the videos were streaming absolutely fine but as soon as I signed up it turned out to be a different story all together. It's so damn frustrating and wish I could opt out now.

    Great app. There is no media playback issue. Content is great. And the Disney collaboration is even better. But the UX lacks in departments like settings, login experience is pathetic, missing basic options like log out of all devices, can't merge mobile and email accounts. Need to improve such UX.

    Worst. Infact ridiculous and very irritating. First of all app stopps working random several times. Second ads Shou be skippable. One don't have that much time to sit in front of TV to watch something that is why uses this app. So that he/she can watch those things here on the app but if here also I have to waste my time like tv then I would rather like to sit in front of TV only. Better uninstall this app from phone free some storage. It is very irritating.

    I feel this app is more like a Streaming Service for Advertisements rather than that of Movies, Serials or Web series. Initially Hotstar as a Streaming Service became popular because of the fact that around ~80% of the content were free but now In order to watch New Movies or series you have to be a member and for Non premium members it's just Ads.. Also the continue watching feature forces you to login to the app. In fact when you look at the subscription plans it's just expensive @ 299/month.

Hope you realise, I am a paid user & not your beta tester.

    This app is quite data heavy when u r playing content, if u do not choose the video quality while streaming, on auto setting which is default , it's guzzles up 1 gb data in one episode, so make sure that u choose d data setting before playing, u will have to do this for all episodes as it goes back to auto setting when the next episode starts

    This is a paid app but still why the hell do they stream adds in the middle of the programs when we watch on our phone. This app doesn't allow you to watch the programs for free so when we pay for what we watch they are not supposed to stream an interrupting add( that too several annoying times)for their own additional profit.

    Wonderful app but company seems to loot. All other movie apps gives you alert for auto renew if it is specially yearly. Last year I activated when cost was 799 and I dont watch English movies much. Recently they launched new price at 399 something but before I could activate that they renewed at 799. This shows how you treat customers and loot them. But anyways by doing this you loose trust of customers I won't pay from next year. 399 is vip and 799 premium is majorly for US series and movies.

Prime Video and Netflix have much better apps, and even Jio is better at ad management. There's lots of room for improvement. PS Now they've added autoplay, the one most criticized Netflix feature... it's like you want us to hate the app.

Make sure subtitles are on in all episodes when we play and give more options for subtitles as to keep the back box of subtitle to transparent or larger subtitles option 4. Remove watermark option of hotstar while playing video this only damages our tv oled display with water mark

    Spending Rs.999/- for membership and now Premium content only downloaded once and that is only for 48 hours. What the logic of premium membership ? Why Hotstar decided, how many times and in how much time i watch content on your app ? Really frustrating !! Lack of Hindi langauge support to most of the English movies. Lack of Marathi content. @Hotstar please learn something from Amazon Prime Video.
