If you’ve been using the Disney Plus Hotstar Mobile subscription plan to watch content on your mobile, you’ll have to shell out Rs 100 more once your subscription ends. However, the extra money will now give you access to all content on the service. You still get only 720p resolution content, and the audio quality is limited to stereo. With the Rs 899/year Super plan, you will get 1080p content with Dolby 5.1 audio support. If you want 4K resolution support, and an ad-free experience, then you’ll have to go for the Premium plan, which costs Rs 1,499 per year.

The new Disney Plus Hotstar Rs 499 plan is an excellent choice for new users who consumer a lot of content on their smartphones. You can now watch all the shows and movies available on the service, and get access to 7 multiplex blockbusters same as the other plans.

If you are already subscribed to Disney Plus Hotstar under the old plans, you will have to buy the new plans only after your existing subscription ends.
