    I have bought VIP pack for live broadcast of IPL. But this app shows the problem of net while matches are going on but Facebook and YouTube do not show any problem of net. All other apps work well. I have bought the VIP pack only for IPL matches but it shows that there is a problem with the net even though it is not a problem of net. But as soon as the live broadcast ends, the movie starts playing on Hotstar. It is our humble request that this problem be resolved as soon as possibly.

    us Doesn't work, when it work video keep freezing while audio work fine. Mostly stuck when launch Have tried deleting data, cleaning cache, uninstall, install back, results are same all the time. Hire some good technical staff. These guys doesn't check app before uploading on g play, may be either they are not technically sound or may be they are careless. Now don't reply me by asking stupid questions like mobile make, OS version and all, better you check yourself before uploading app update,

    subscription First of all, even though i am a vip member it is loaded with ads. Which is not a good experience. I know that as per terms and conditions it comes with ads but atleast if i am paying money for it! So i should get fewer ads like at the start of the video and one in between and at the end of the video. I want to watch movie seamlessly with little compromise. But this VIP pack is like sabotaging the experience and money both! And 2nd is that i get popup of retry while watching live IPL!😔

    login I'm definitely going to post this on social media. Worst worst worst ever app that I have used in my life after taking a subscription. Buffering for ages for every single ball while watching a match. Why the hell do you guys cheat customer's in the name VIP/Premium service. The is for nothing. Just a waste of money. If I had the option I would even give 0 ratings....

    subscription usa Worst experience because there were too many advertisements.if you want to watch any movie show or match , you have to see all of the ads.if any person want to watch anything on this app, he will be charged 400 rs one year subscription charge + too many advertisement (* watch these ads are necessary). In short the all peoblems is watch all the ads ,slow app speed , hanging problem , ads after every 5 minutes and no option to skip ads after paying 400 rs.👎

    us login Disappointing... I am a paid member of hotstar and from last few days I am facing an issue with connection error when I am in my wifi(siti broadband in Kolkata). I have to switch back to mobile data (jio) than it loads up and than connecting back to wifi it works for few minutes and than issues starts. This is very frustrating and ruins the content experience. If this continues I'd rather not suggest anyone to opt for paid membership. Because one cannot enjoy contents only on mobile data.

    new movies Very bad experience...I don't know what happens to this app during the last 5-6 overs of any IPL match...I think this issue persists from atleast two years as I had faced similar issues during 2018 IPL...and the most disturbing thing is that neither the customer care team ever have responded on my complaint nor the developers have shown interest to resolve this technical issue... Hope I'll get response on this review...

    free trial Whenever I watch live matches on hotstar The stream runs by itself. Stops frequently starts to be buffring Whereas my network is very good and speed is more than 1mbps. hotstar needs to improve its APP. Because since only people with only vip can see live matches this has happened Watching has also reduced since then, yet the stream continues to stall.

    deals hotstar was good back then when there where less ads and subscription price were less. i was a premium subscriber until then. now im a vip subscriber just to watch ipl. now a days streaming quality is poor, sometimes it buffers while watching even though i have 50Mbps connection. this doesn't happen on netflix or amazon prime video even while streaming full HD. most of the english shows which i see are available on other platforms and i pay much less.

    The new update really screwed up the hotstar experience, whenever the data speed is reduced the video is paused which is fine but when the data speed normal the video stays paused and the audio carrys on , this is really annoying and I have to refresh every time it happens to enjoy the content. Please fix this...

    Worst ever policies. Received SMS for OTP login 100s times and mostly late night. Once some hacker changed his mobile for my Premium Account and I was unable to login as Password only sent to mobile rather email and password login. So some hacker used mybpaid account for so long till it was resolved by Customer Care. Why you cannot change the otp login to email+pwd combo like any other standard applications. Decided never to use this services again.

    It is good. The only thing is that there aren't subtitles in movies. I find that really frustrating. I have reported it many a times, but there are no subtitles for some movies. Also the sound quality is also very low. The sound clarity is only there for 5 minutes in a movie. I thought it had been my problem, so I downloaded it in my tab. No use. It has a lot if movies and serials and I give it a 4 star. Please give subtitles for serials also. Cauz I don't understand hindi and want subtitles.

    Worst streaming app on play store. It gets stuck even when the number of people streaming is very less. Even if you have good connection , it'll show buffering symbol. I clearly see it's backed by low configuration backend machines or poorly written code that can't handle concurrent request very efficient. Maybe you could learn from Netflix ?

    Its a great app, the collection of shows and movies are also good, but not enough. I've reduced 1 star because it's features are not as good as other streaming apps, like screen on screen and skip intro features. Add those features too then it would be an perfect app

    Home page does not load sometimes. HORRIBLE! The homepage doesn't load sometimes. You can't watch anything because the entire screen goes blank with no contents in it. I'm not sure if its the bug or something else. Can't even watch love IPL games. It happens often these days. It shows an error "Something went wrong. Please try again". It also buffers a lot. Very irritating. Kindly sort this issue soon.

    It is one of the worst streaming platforms available. Every now and then, it shows 'something went wrong. Please try again.' Then I am to reinstall it and in the process end up loosing all my downloads. And whenever I click on some videos to see the info, it automatically starts playing which is awkward in public places. It is nothing compared to Netflix and Prime video.

    Never before have I used an app which is so unstable and full of bugs, which you need to pay premium for. The contents are great, there's no doubt, but the app, it's a total disappointment. It hangs often, the UI isn't friendly, it's slow, there's no ease of use. This app needs redesign & needs to be optimized. I have no complaint except the app. The overall library is great.

    Ads are annoying. I've paid for subscription and still the ads are there. What's more annoying that two adds come one after another and you can't skip them. What is the point of paying if you are bothered by ads every once in a while. The price of subscription is very decent with the VIP coming at ₹399(Previously it was 365😥) . You can watch IPL, Bundesliga, Tennis, EPL and even Formula 1.

    1. Very poor interface- really really needs an improvement. For this alone I am giving you 1 star. 2. Regular buffering problem 3. Why do videos start when it is merely selected to view more details? 4. Why do we have to select video quality each time? Why can't we set a preference? Long way to go to before you even come up to the level of Amazon Prime; Netflix is a long way to go though.

    Today While watching bigg boss Telugu season 4 I am getting a prompt that media services are not available on the device. But when I play IPL match it was working, without any prompt. How could that be? If one doesn't work, then others also shouldn't be working. How come one has media services and other doesn't? Every 3 days update comes and this is how you maintain things!!!.

    Interface is full of bugs, When you watch a series first it didn't show you what you watched and second you need to go back and then select the next episode. And thus is very annoying. Please fix this as this bug is not resolved since over 8 months of me noticing it. Update: please fix the dismiss button on the notification. I don't follow the match on my phone.

    Sucks. Always buffering. Viewing shows/ movies on Android app is *always* choppy. Works better when you cast but even then not all videos can be cast (why?) and quality auto-switches to poor. On a browser, it starts to buffer and eventually gives up. You need to reload. I actually checked the network tab and most API calls remain pending *slow clap*. I'm just riding out my subscription. It's not even worth using your friends account/subscription for this one. Its like they just don't care.

    The worst of OTT platforms out there. Poor quality streaming with stable high speed(100 Mbps) internet. I usually use this to watch live matches and it's the most irritating experience(Live is a myth with this app). Lots of Ads even after I paid for subscription. Becoz of the poor streaming quality, I have to restart several times and it's always start with an ad, even in between overs. If Disney doesn't want to ruin their reputation, the need to get rid of hotstar partnership.

I tried to reach the customer care service, and after one month, my issue get solved. Now on Sep 2020, again I am facing the same problem and nobody is replying to my mail. As this is the IPL season, I want to use the Hotstar but due to this problem, I couldn't. I can say that I wasted my money in Hotstar.

    Horrible user experience. 1. Why just dark mode. Atleast follow the system theme. It is too much strain on eyes. 2. Why autoplay video with sound on home screen. If I mute the video, close and then open the app again, it plays in full volume next time. If you want to feature something in homescreen do it without the sound or atleast respect user's choice of muting. 3. If you close app accidently while casting and reopen again, the video starts playing on phone as well as TV

    At first, I gave this app 4 stars but now I am reducing it to one. I wouldn't have givrn that 1 star too if it was not necessary. This was a very good app but iy is doomed after collaborating with Disney. Now, I can't even watch free content on it on TV. I need subscription for it. This app is very bad now. End this collaboration if you want your good reviews back.

    Can't download movies, cannot load , no subtitles in movies and many episodes missing in many shows. What was an amazing app now has become a NIGHTMARE. All of this became like this after an update. I recommend anyone else reading this review don't waste 399Rs or 1,449Rs on this poor subscription. So don't agree with content. Ads even after VIP subscription? And if you will switch to premium, you will face ads even in IPL. Shame on you. I will switch to Amazon Prime.

    Best OTT platform ever made. Content is so good and has a huge library. Why rated 2 star ? Old UI. We need improved UI with new elements like other platforms in an organised manner. Suggestions can be improved based on what a user watch. Recommendations can be improved a lot. Team needs to work on this for betterment as only content can't make it win the race but also user experience needs to be taken care of. Thanks for reading. Hope you will work on this.

    This app has the worst payment options I've ever seen. Its like they want to actively discourage subscriptions. I want to use the app, I want to pay, but they won't accept just any card, it has to meet their standards!!! And for a monthly subscription, they will not accept any other payment modes. The rest of the world has moved on people, there are 10 different payment modes on all other streaming services but hotstar is still clinging to Doordarshan standards!! Worst experience ever.

    This app is getting on my nerves! I'm soo damn pissed. It was working well till yesterday night. And today it got logged out all of a sudden and won't log in. It says my password is incorrect whereas I never changed my password..also I am not receiving any emails if I give forgot pass. I even checked the spam box for mails. No emails at all! This Sooo frustrating. I have paid for my subscription and it won't work! 😤

    On live cricket casting, it gets stuck sometimes and keeps loading, but without user clicking on "Go Live" it gets hanged forever. I think it should 'Go Live" automatically as we may not have phone near by always. It is very annoying when it struck and never recovers. What is the point in waiting if you can not auto recover, instead you can skip and go to live stream without user have to click "Go Live".

    It used to be good but it became a dustbin since the last update. Whenever I downloaded a movie, I used to download it in medium quality. But then I thought to download it in high quality. But when I download some movies in high quality, it doesn't download saying that you have downloaded this movie once. You can't download it again. All premium/VIP movies will be downloaded once. But they are not VIP or premium at all.

    The downloaded videos also do not play. Have to delete them and then either re-download and watch immediately (which if not watched even for few days, won't play later on) or watch online. Total NONSENSE with downloaded videos. And this is not a recent issue. I've faced it hundreds of times but today was my limit to hold back writing. And the best part is, developer probably doesn't even know or is too bothered to fix the issue!

Flashes wierd messages 'You are Traveling' or 'Allow to update location' though the location/ GPS is on and updated in Google Maps, Weather and other apps, and to top it all-- There is something wrong. Please try later. Not expected from a big name like Disney+ Hotstar

    Match Video gets stucked after every 2-3 minutes, while audio continues in background of stucked video. One has to wait for a minute to appear an icon of "Go live", then after touching on "Go live", match video gets resumed. Please add "Refresh" option for such -stucked video- problem. Too much buffering. It spoils enjoyment of every IPL match. I can't watch any match because of buffering every 10 seconds and have to compromise by watching Highlights only. Do something yaar...

    Issues that most of the users are waiting since ages to be fixed in this App : 1. poor live video streaming quality 2. too much buffering 3. super heavy and laggy - hangs & freezes a lot 4. eats huge chunks of mobile data. 5. payment page gets stuck forever - can't even able to enter the details. Acquisition by Disney only increased the old stuff & content with higher subscriptions charges and long unskippable Ads!

    Plus side of the app is the live streams that is does. Hence the one star plus. I am jiotv user that directs me to hotstar for f1 live content streaming. While I am redirected, if the app has an update available ot forces me to update. I can understand sometimes it might be a must to have an update but everytime forcing to update is a bad user experience. Hope hoststar gets better at this or fixes this. For this minus 2 stars. Content wise need a lot of improvemnt hence one minus there.

    They removed many shows. I loved 1 show. It was there on hotstar since 2014 . A few months before also it was there. Now when I thought of watching the rest the show is missing. I emailed hotstar and they told due to music copyrights issue they removed. I don't understand why they didn't remove it before. It was viewable for the past 6 years then what is the use of removing now.

    Too many issues yet to be fixed. Live streams like IPL hangs frequently and then auto seeks to keep up with live stream, I have missed many good moments of matches due to this. There is no seek option to replay these moments for live streams. Also, no PIP mode for the app yet which was introduced in Android 8. This product is not worth considering the premium subscription amount its charging.

    Terrible experience. I have the fastest mobile internet connection available in the country and every single one of my apps works blazing fast with it....... except hotstar. It has become unbearable since the Disney update. Takes a painfully long time to load live sports, ads buffer as well, video freezes mid stream, stream suddenly goes 3 seconds behind outta thin air, video quality keeps dropping even when set on high, "Report an Issue" feature in the app is useless. Heavy improvements needed.

    I think now it's a time to uninstall the app. They just need a money not a user's. Without users they won't get money. Some are not in subscription but from them the Hotstar getting money via adds , then why the hell asking for subscription. Without subscription there are 💯 million users , if you do like this without subscription no IPL matches view in Hotstar, then all will uninstall the app, and your app don't get the users, and it will be deleted from the playstore.

    If I already registered for annual pack so why every time when I open the app, always ask to recharge for a premium pack. That premium pack advertising page has no exit option. Once I close your app, and repoen app after that my shows goes to start. I'm not happy for your service. Improve it ,if customer already registered then why you asking for next level (premium) pack. If we want to purchase premium pack than we update our pack.

I'm not even able to set the quality to high while casting. It's fine while watching on mobile btw. I'd love to give a five star rating based on the content that is available.

    I was a premium user for last year. These guys has increased the price ridiculously for yearly premium. So I stepped down to VIP tier. But, it shows ads. What's the purpose of having membership when you force users to view the ads? Ads should be only in the free version. A big thumb down to the horrible level of greedy DNA that you have demonstrated. You should only separate app content based on VIP or Premium tiers. Ads should not be there for users who has active subscription.

I think it will take the mobile data extra and told , have to recharge and waste our money

    It is worst, the content is very limited in VIP subscription. Only IPL is given that is good. There are few Tamil Hits but that too in its original sound no hindi dub. There is very less difference between Hotstar free and Hotstar VIP subscription only IPL is added feature. So it is waste of money matters. So VIP subscription is bad, this much of content I can get anywhere else very easily and that too free.

    The worst app ever I used. Out of all other apps like Netflix, Prime, Zee5, AltBalaji, MxPlayer this app's performance is devastatingly bad. On most of the occasions it shows 'Something went wrong try again after some time'. For no reason it will say you "You may be travelling and please restart". Sometimes it logs you out automatically and you are unable to log in and even if you uninstall and reinstall the app still the problem will persist. No wonder people are giving it low ratings.

    You have increased your subscription after merging with Disney plus. But it is of not much use. Original Disney plus regularly uploads new contents which are not included in Hotstar. On the contrary, you have removed many old contents. There are only a lot of old Disney movies but no Disney shows except Hannah Montana and Suite Life and even those are not complete. What's the use of upgrading to Disney plus and increasing the rate to 1500?

I think I am not going to renew my subscription of Hotstar anymore. If a small bug cannot be fixed even after a year is utter disgrace or just Novi Digital.

Data consumption is way too high, CHROME CAST DOESN'T WORK ,always buffering never plays properly. Thousands of ways to embezzle money but zero ways to provide customer service. If download to watch offline, chances are u can't. Most Disney+ shows or movies arent dubbed like Netflix does. ADS, ADS & ADS. I won't be renewing my premium subscription until app doesn't work accordingly.

    Something always goes wrong with this app. I'm unable to watch anything since a week. Everytime it's showing something went wrong. What's the use of paying for the subscription then. I have tried opening on other devices too but it's the same. It needs to be improved a lot.

    What the hell.. the app's been hanging, showing rotating sign, since 30 mins.. even after setting the speed to Low, and while my conn speed is 15 Mbps. Really frustrating and irritating.. I have been a really unhappy and harassed customer till now, may it be cheating on Ads, forcing me to subscribe twice, very high subscr fee, poor service, etc.. unlike any other OTT services till date. Shey...

    The app won't load. Other apps are working fine. That means it's not the internet problem. I have missed many live matches. Whenever I start the app it just go on loading and won't open at all! It was working fine at least before subscribing to the VIP! Now it's not working at all!

    Ever since Disney took over Hotstar.. The app is terrible. I have subscribed to vip plan and it freezes every time I'm watching a live match.. I found an alternative third party app which streams live matches for free which works absolutely fine without inconvenience.. I'm not going to renewal your subscription again.. Good bye!!!!

    What the hell is wrong with hotstar today? It just isn't playing the content consistently at all. Keeps buffering and stopping everytime with a message that says unable to playback (NM-4030). I have a superfast internet and am getting a speed of over 200MBPS right now. I am able to play everything but live cricket match. Completed the troubleshooting by clearing cache and data and turning off my fire stick device, login again and same result. Uninstall and reinstall doesn't work either.

    I have been using Hotstar on my Mobile and the experience was good. Recently I subscribed to the Premium pack of Hotstar from my Mobile App , but was surprised to see that I could not access it from my Jio fibre TV connection . Even the response from their hello email id has not been encouraging. So I guess I stand to lose my money if I cancel the subscription now. Good experience turned to bad experience. Hope Hotstar is able to solve my issue

    What is the problem with this app, when I go to see highlights of match it automatically skips to next video after few seconds when the video I want to watch is taking time to play due to bad network, revert it back or I will cancel my subscription, very bad product manager you have replace them, realise your mistake guys, I can practically stay on app and it will scroll down the complete list automatically without actually playing any video

Also the suggestions of this is very bad, suppose i search any international match like ind vs aus, they shows me a domestic matches like ipl. I totally disappointed to this and it gives very bad experience to me...

    This is the worst App I have ever seen, because when we see other streaming apps they support 4k like Amazon prime, Netflix, Hulu. This app only supports 1080p even if we have an annual subscription of ₹ 1499. It has only selected content which supports Dolby. Even after charging 1499 you guys are giving the best. This is not worthy.

    Need major improvements! It's so frustrating to watch in anything on this app! It plays videos on 144p even when you have set to quality to high or medium, doesn't take your command! Can't enjoy movies like that! And when somehow it allows you to watch on better quality, the data consumption is so damn high that you will end up finishing you 30GB per month pack in just 2-3 days! Faced no such issues on Prime or Netflix..

    I have Amazon Prime video and Netflix and this is the shittiest app ever. VIP members can't even watch the movies in English..You have to be a premium member to watch the English movies in English. Really??? Had to watch Avengers Endgame in Hindi and it sucks. And they just won't accept any cards for payment. Not even SBI platinum cards. It has the worst payment options ever. If possible, I'd give this app negative 5 stars

Sort that out ad is not a problem the worst is the screen gets stuck while playing due to which need to restart the whole video. I'm a premium member and this is the level of service they give for people who purchase their services. No need of so many ads

    After every update of the App, the App doesn't open for 3 plus hours. It simply asks to please try again later. Also says to restart the app stating that I have travelled somewhere and location is changed. Kindly fix these issues. The application doesn't look like user friendly since all the shows are jumbled.

But when ever i try to run the stream through Tata sky app from any other device the stream is smooth no lags. Note : whenever i open the hotstar app(without Tata sky) the stream just run fine without any lag or buffering) it lags only when I open hotstar through Tata sky link.

    There is no option to customize what I like to watch to be there on top of my dashboard. Always some uninteresting stuff on top and notifications for Cricket which I never watch. I have been using this to watch EPL. Worst part is I have no option and hence use this app. Everytime I have to search for my match and then watch while random stuffs keep appearing on top. Live with this.

    The only reason I had to install and subscribe this app was hbo content. No other ott in india provides it, hotstar's interface sucks, at times videos don't even play and app has to be reinstalled again. Whenever you search something, you hardly get information on what you are looking for, but app displays tons of daily news content. I hope hbo and disney come up with their own ott in india and put an end to this non-sense stupid app.

    Consuming too much of data even with "low quality" setting. When you have high speed of Mobile data and the settings being changed as "low quality", still the data consumption is same. The "low quality" is not working properly and taking almost 800-1024 MB of data per hour which is too worst.

    Too many adds. One simply can't watch a show peacefully without being bombarded by loads of ads. When a user has paid for the subscription, I don't see the need to push ads - that too every five minutes. YouTube can show ads as it's free. Paying to get ads is plain horrendous. Please stop this.

    It is bad as it does not allow more than two devices to login at the same time and dosent even give the option to buy more expensive plan to support more than 2 devices like pri. And every time it asks for an OTP but sometimes you don't uave your phone or u are in another's house and you want to login to hotstar and it's impossible. Not every body carries their phone everywhere they travel this feature shoul be removed and user should be able through facebook as it is also a safe medium to login

While playing on TV app and suddenly power goes down, video progress is not saved, it can save in local tv cache and resumed.

    If you want English content, never buy vip subscription. It will give you just so called dubbed content on Hollywood movies, and even if you want to upgrade to premium there is option not available for android phone users. Because only iPhone user can upgrade to premium, then why don't you tell it before??? Why would I use a dumb iPhone and waste more money? Meh! Totally disappointed with thos application.

    1.)There is no payment options from debit card other than those 3 banks(icici, canara and one other). And for using SBI debit card they force us to buy yearly membership. Monthly subscription is not there for other cards like SBI. Same with PAYTM, wallet payment is only allowed when you buy a yearly membership. 2.) It consumes a lot of internet data, a 20 minutes exhausted my 1.5 GB data even when i lowered the video quality to low.

    Despite 4G connections, this app takes forever to play a video. Whereas, if I stream at Netflix or Prime through the same 4G network, the quality is amazing. Those apps have better streaming quality. Hotstar is slow and at the same time inefficient with respect to the video quality.

    Why i am really disappointed for this app is : 1) There so many low rated movie which also need premium membership 2) lot of movies and show are in premium membership more than 80% 3) Even if you take VIP membership you need to watch boring advertisments 4) There is a very little entertaining stuff in VIP 5) VIP include mostly old movies only. That's why i decided i will never choose VIP+hotstar pack next time if they don't do any progress in there app containt..

What a rubbish app. I have tried ot with several net connection but it still is not olayung properly , what is the use of paying a premium when you have to watch the match on jio tv . Seriously very disappointed.
