Disney Plus Hotstar Premium Offers Add Free User Experience

Despite being a paid subscription service, Disney Plus Hotstar VIP users have to tolerate ads across the service, which is a bummer. However, that's not the case with the Disney Plus Hotstar Premium users, who can enjoy an ad-free user experience.

One Disney Plus Hotstar Premium Account Supports Two Screens

If you have a single Disney Plus Hotstar Premium account, you can concurrently stream content on two devices. If you are a Disney Plus Hotstar VIP user, then, you can only watch the content on a single device. This makes sure that a Disney Plus Hotstar Premium user can watch a different show on his phone or laptop while the same account can be used to stream content on a smart TV at the same time.

Disney Plus Hotstar Premium Offers High-Resolution Streaming

If you have a 4K television in your home, then, it is best to get the Disney Plus Hotstar Premium subscription, as it offers up to 4K resolution (on supported movies and shows). The maximum resolution offered by the Disney Plus Hotstar VIP account is 720p, so, you end up watching low-resolution content, as most phones, laptops, and televisions now offer at least 1080p resolution. When it comes to audio, both plans offer Dolby 5.1 audio output, again on supported devices.

Disney Plus Hotstar VIP Is Almost Free, Disney Plus Hotstar Premium Is Expensive

Last but not the least, the pricing, which is the major deciding factor to choose between these two services. Most telecom providers are now bundling Disney Plus Hotstar VIP subscriptions with nominal recharge plans, this means, most users can actually get a free annual Disney Plus Hotstar VIP subscription.

When it comes to Disney Plus Hotstar Premium, one can either get a monthly subscription for Rs. 299 per month or the annual subscription costs Rs. 1499, which makes it a much expensive plan, especially when compared to the price of the Disney Plus Hotstar VIP subscription.

Which One Should You Get?

If you are happy with watching Indian movies, streaming live sports, and if the ads do not bother you, just get the Disney Plus Hotstar VIP subscription. However, if you are into pop culture, then, you need to get a Disney Plus Hotstar Premium subscription. Do note that, one Disney Plus Hotstar Premium subscription can be used on two devices. So, get this subscription and split it with your friend or family.
