Disney Plus was scheduled to be launched in India on March 29, but the company postponed the launch date due to Corona Outbreak in India. Now today it is coming out that Disney Plus is going to be launched in India on April 3, in view of which Hotstar has increased its subscription price. However, the currently increased subscription price is not being reflected on Hotstar’s website.
Those of you who don’t know the company had a plan to launch Disney Plus in India on the day the Indian Premier League was going to start in India. That is, on 29 March, 2020. But seeing the Corona Outbreak in India, neither the Indian Premier League started nor the Disney Plus service launched.
Why is the Walt Disney Company launching Disney Plus in India during lockdown?
Now you must be wondering what happened in these four days that the Walt Disney Company is launching Disney Plus during lockdown in India. So the thing is that video streaming has increased a lot during lockdown in India. Video streaming in India has increased so much during the lockdown that YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Facebook have been downgrading the default video streaming quality. These companies have reduced the video streaming quality so that network congestive problems do not arise in India. However, looking at all these data, it seems that the Walt Disney Company does not get a better time to launch Disney Plus in India. Hence Disney Plus is being launched in India on 3 April.
Hotstar Subscription Price Increases
