Disney Plus Hotstar mobile vs premium plan benefits
Before we get down to the differences, it’s worth mentioning that Disney Plus Hotstar Mobile and Premium both offer the same catalogue of content. You would be able to stream live sports including IPL and all movies and TV shows in the original language. However, the Disney Plus Hotstar Mobile only allows you to stream content on a mobile phone (or tab) screen that too at max video quality of 720p resolution and stereo sound.
The Disney Plus Hotstar Premium, on the other hand, can be used to stream content on any screen, including smartphones, laptops, smart TV, and streaming devices. The subscription also supports 4K resolution and Dolby 5.1 to enhance the overall experience.
