Hotstar does not support chromecast amazon cast or any tv casting service. It also does not have a Samsung smart tv or any other smart tv app. Hence you are forced to watch it on phone or tablet. Very disappointing!

shardasam's Review of HotstarReviewed on 9/20/18 4:49 AM
I use to like this app a lot. But recently they are getting worse. They don’t upload their shows on time. Daily shows are not even available after 24 hours of the telecast. I think they should focus on consistency rather then advertisements. I think we should go with some other alternative..

App does not reflect the subscription made online No support for casting to smart TVs.
Thackett 's Review of HotstarReviewed on 9/18/18 7:29 PM
The app does not allow you restore purchases made through the iTunes Store, so I am paying for an unusable app. Even worse, there is no way to request a refund. The typical Apple process takes a user back through Hotstar’s web site, which does not load properly. FAQ and FEEDBACK pages do not load at all. Two emails requesting assistance went unanswered. If this company takes more cricket away from Willow, there will be terrible times for cricket fans in America. *Update 9/18/18 — technical support emails tell the user to call a toll-free number that no one answers. A waste of money.

i am crazy for cricket so i bought 1 year package from hotstar in usa. whenever i tune in to watch live matches on my chromecast or roku tv it is always bad quality(360p)(i have 100 mbps internet so no way internet is the problem here, all other video streaming apps works perfectly) i am literally shocked that star cannot fix such a small problem. even small company like willow tv has no streaming issues. shame on you hotatar. cricket is a better viewing experience with willow tv.

It’s perfect app for Indian tv show to watch your favorite and old shows. But Not many options for movies.
kay.ali's Review of HotstarReviewed on 9/15/18 4:06 PM
This app is very restrictive. Not sure why paid customers are restricted content while it is available on youtube and other places. I was trying to watch asia cup it and the App restricts you to connect your phone to your tv through hdmi. It does not even let you charge your phone and says that device is not supported while i have been using the same charger all my life. Only option is to use chrome cast as if everyone in the world has a chrome cast device.

This could be a better app for India. But other region members are not allowed to watch their own country videos and streaming. So unsubscribe from Hotstar. 3 star for their great streaming, multilingual.

nn2931's Review of HotstarReviewed on 8/12/18 3:56 AM
Cant understand why you had to slate Gerrard to get more viewers. Forget about the Liverpool supporters sentiments. From a purely marketing standpoint, you are trying to get more Liverpool fans to subscribe by firstly addressing them and then slating their legend. Creative freedom is one thing, this is just stupid.

hope lost salima's Review of HotstarReviewed on 7/10/18 12:38 AM
I was watching this movie Iss pyaar ko kya naam doon in Africa and when I came to the UNited States I tried finding a place where I could watch it took over a year to know about Hotstar. I was so happy that I was finally gonna be able to finish watch it cause am obsessed about that show. If I can tell am their number one fan. But what did I get instead, a big fat disappointment. Am so disappointed with Hotstar right now. I subscribed and everything but when I put on the show to watch it, it was in Hindi and I can’t understand Hindi. But I thought it might have subtitles in English. But there was no option which means no subtitles. Hotstar am really disappointed in you guys. Y’all got ma hopes up that I can finally watch the show. And then y’all disappointed me. Y’all made lose hope. Y’all thought me a lesson anyway, never get your hopes cause you might not be happy about the results.
Modern Dough's Review of HotstarReviewed on 6/9/18 10:32 PM
Overall a very good app, with a lot of content. Two major wishlist items: 1. Improve the search - provide filters for language, genre and year. ex: English, Drama, 2018 2. Live news. Would be great to watch news shows as they are being telecast. Overall, very impressed, but search is a major opportunity.

Thieves!!! You have to pay 10$ a month and still the content is available a day later. The premium content which is available in India for 1000₹ per year (~15$ per year) is not available here even though you pay 10$ per month. And moreover most contents like Bigg Boss is not available in U.S. Beware before you waste 10$

No digital rights for its own programs, why someone need to pay this stupid app. Never get live content, and catchup also with missing content.

Hotstar is bad, it’s only good for watching cricket If you want to watch shows of any other star channels Hotstar is very bad. You have to wait till it passes 12:00am of the current day to watch the episode which is ridiculous after paying for the subscription and no live streaming is total injustice for the price paid. This is a rip off

I checked my account and I can see the free trial till May 14th, but I can’t watch any videos on the app or website. It’s just an endless cycle of ‘Subscribe - You’re already subscribed’ screens.

Ivan_84's Review of HotstarReviewed on 5/3/18 2:31 AM
First the main pain points- Repeatedly being asked to login multiple times a week, super annoying. The fast forward and rewind features have bugs due to which rapid use of the buttons cause the audio to get out of sync of the video. Video resume is a must for a paid service like this and it is very annoying especially when combined with the issue above. Now the things that are good: Good picture quality and no buffering or getting stuck etc. Friendly and familiar UI navigation and search. Decent collection but for the $10 subscription one would expect this to grow.

Jahnavi Sharma's Review of HotstarReviewed on 5/27/18 4:38 PM
You know what is the difference between a Dog and a human watching Hotstar after IPL final, only Dog watches in excitement. And you get dizziness, nausea, fatigue, confusion, irritation, anger and what not after watching their bakwas ads and they run ads by saying that their ads are bakwas. I think that sums up the Hotstar story. Just waiting for IPL final to finish and I will scrap this channel.

.Just.Another.Bad.Review.'s Review of HotstarReviewed on 5/1/18 2:34 PM
One of the most unfriendly interface I have seen. You cannot filter content based on language within content type (TV shows or Movies). You can filter it in general, but then the list contains all the soap operas which I am personally not interested in. One MAJOR drawback is that I have to login every single time I open the app. That is just frustrating and plain dumb. Unfortunately I gotta use the service to watch IPL. Once that’s done, I will deactivate my service and lose the app.

In 2018, Hotstar cannot create a streaming app that doesn’t interrupt a live game with some CHEAP infomercial about a Sweat Stream Belt. PATHETIC!

But your stupid hotstar app doesn't allow to broadcast on my tv. You don't make an app for tv. You won't let anyone stream on tv. What is wrong with u? Also no discounts for students? Why? Worst coding ever. Zero logic in functionalities. Have a bad day ahead.

I have done everything required to view the content, it’s a simple model. now I have to call customer service and resolve all these petty issues. - some videos don’t play as they are not available in US. why would you include them in the US version of the app!! - Chromecast streaming is unstable Get your act together man! I should have gone with Willow or Sling, they work just fine.

Hi..The app is great.. But I wanted to watch IPL in my big screen Roku TV. Although Roku has Hotstar app and everything works like a charm there. but I CANT WATCH IPL MATCHES LIVE IN THERE. Any solution?

VigMei's Review of HotstarReviewed on 4/4/18 2:19 AM
I have subscribed Hotstar and been using it for few months now. In the recent past, when I try to log in to the app it’s asking me to subscribe. When I go to MyAccount it’s asking me to start free trial. When I click either of the option it shows Active subscription detected. I tried deleting the app, installed it again. Logged out and logged back in multiple times etc but nothing is working. I have an active subscription through App Store. Not sure how to reach their support team too.

This is a waste of an app that came to market too soon. Canceled it within the 1st month. Buffers a lot, poor quality and every now and then goes back to the start of the program, and does not connect well with my apple tv.. Bought for IPL but canceled and got Willow instead.

Took the subscription just to see IPL and not a single match was played without the playback error and app crashing. Tried on multiple devices and multiple installs, still the error continues.

After reading very bad reviews about Hotstar I got willow tv to watch ipl. Now since willow wants us to go and watch from Hotstar app...it’s doesn’t have apps or support AirPlay .
bdoshi1's Review of HotstarReviewed on 4/28/18 6:18 PM
We signed up on this app just to watch live cricket. It runs well with nice HD quality videos but that doesn’t happen all the time. Mostly it will either have connection issues or just will keep jumping around the screens, so, you cannot even watch the whole over. Sometimes it will have chromecast connection errors. I believe their only priority is to show ads and not live cricket. Willow was much better, I hope these big companies realize that spectators want to enjoy the shows without ads chopping them down. Hotstar, if you cannot take care of live telecast at this magnitude, please give the rights back to Willow so we can enjoy the sport!

Supreme Taco's Review of HotstarReviewed on 4/28/18 6:10 PM
Live matches can jump randomly to any point +-3 minutes. Lost entire thread of CSK VS. MI. Did I mention it also suddenly goes live? It’s OK if there is 5 minutes delay, I can deal with that. But just jumping around it completely messes up the game. You are in suspense and suddenly game over!

Narial Taster's Review of HotstarReviewed on 3/4/18 4:27 PM
The app works ok but I REALLY do not appreciate being badgered with prompts to review the app, especially when I have taken the trouble to disable the In-App Ratings & Reviews option under Settings. One does not expect such cheap tricks and spamming attempts from quality apps or large, reputed developers. A request to the developer to stop this immediately.

Cyclonel09's Review of HotstarReviewed on 3/29/18 3:16 PM
At the beginning I liked the app. I upgraded to premium last month cause of it. But this month, after my subscription renewal the app started giving me error message every time I tried to watch a video. Contact their support team Tuesday. They told me to delete the app then redownload it, so I did. When I signed back in I was asked to upgrade again even though I already paid for this month subscription. I gave them my contact details and they keep telling me they are trying o contact me when I never received any call from them. It’s been over 3 days. They are ripping people off by taking their money and then stopping their subscription. Don’t waste your money.
Suba.antu's Review of HotstarReviewed on 3/29/18 3:14 PM
Hello hotstar, Few things needs to be addressed immediately, 1. Bring shows like big boss to US, this is a paid subscription, stop saying we don’t have rights. If u don’t have rights for certain programs then why did u ppl launch hotstar in the US. It is half baked even after 7 months. 2. Need a Samsung smart tv app. Small organization like Yupptv, willow has smart tv apps why not u? It will take less than a week to develop a app if u have a good developers. 3. Bring the shows to US on the same day and not the next day. My friends and I feel that INDIA FREE HOTSTAR is much superior than US PAID HOTSTAR. Need subtitles on every content you provide. I hope you guys take this seriously. In this piracy world it very easy to watch illegally but I respect the content makers for their work. It’s easy to use VPN which some ppl do but don’t make us do the same. Again it’s high time you need to bring changes or else goodbye very soon. Thanks, Dinesh

Amrit32518's Review of HotstarReviewed on 3/25/18 7:17 PM
First sign-up online and use the discount code there to avail the free trial of a month rather than getting one week only free thru app store and also the 30 percent discount for first billing month. Customer care at Hotstar also can't help. There is no mention of this issue and won't help you if you install the app and register it thru that. No option to add the promo code whole signing up from the app. Big hassle for someone who uses the one main email address and one credit card for such transactions.
Kushagrav's Review of HotstarReviewed on 3/23/18 7:00 PM
It took forever for hotstar to release in the US. I get it, rights and all, its difficult. But the platform is not user-friendly. I cannot resume a movie if I close the app. Have a recently watched or at least the last watched section so that its easier to go back to what I was watching. Arrange the episodes by date and not by name, episode 11 is after episode 1 which does NOT make any sense. Its a good platform with a lot of good content but it needs to be more user-friendly.
vinoth_iyer's Review of HotstarReviewed on 3/13/18 3:59 AM
The app is good to watch all shows and movies. But the app is unstable with chrome cast functionalities. I have to restart the app many times to regain cast. The unacceptable part is that app acquires full wake lock while it is casting. If the app goes to background it looses track of current video. I have to search the show all over again and re-cast it again. Please fix it.

mvenkata's Review of HotstarReviewed on 2/27/18 12:42 AM
I took hotstar subscription in Oct 17. It was a horrific experience where they deducted the fee for three months but I only got to watch it for say 15-20 days. There was some issue between Apple and hotstar and in the end I had to pay for it. Got calls from techs ( from a different person ) every time who could not solve the issue. In the end got fed up. I don’t need this service anymore to watch some lousy shows.

E1Bart0's Review of HotstarReviewed on 12/23/18 12:43 PM
First off, no complaints about the content. There’s a lot of good content, a lot of original too. But if you are collecting $100 a year, I’m expecting Netflix quality or Amazon quality. I know you can never be at the quality level for the content but can’t you fix your app? Speaking of the app, I use this on my Apple TV, and the experience isn’t good at all. 1. If you pause a show and the Apple TV goes to sleep or screensaver mode, when I go back to the app, the show is gone but the audio continues. And continues. And continues. The only way out is to restart your Apple TV. 2. Good luck finding the show you want to watch without having to use the search function. You can’t sort, there is no reason or logic to the order of the shows shown and you will see a lot of shows even 10+ years old show above the latest or popular ones. 3. ‘Continue watching’ is a joke, most shows I watch never show up or even movies just go missing!!!

I subscribed for HotStar membership with yearly combined subscription of HotStar and Saavn. Its been few weeks and after repeated emails, HotStar customer support haven't yet figured out how to get Saavn subscription activated (they supposed to send a code to subscribe for Saavn and they haven’t sent one yet)
Basanta Nayak's Review of HotstarReviewed on 12/22/18 12:48 PM
Friends to let you know beware of Hotstar false promises. In November 2018 there was an offer for Hotstar along with Saavan and I have subscribed with this one. As per them Savanna promo code would be issued within 7-10 business days. Still I am following up with this to get promo code of Savanna always they says within 24-48 hours will be resolved but never got updates. Strange and worst part is that they haven’t admitted their mistakes nor share promo code. I hopes other similar customers might have faced same situation Request to others who have face the same situation and spread this so that others won’t affect this type situation

The app is geat but UI is a nightmare. Sports aren’t organized effectively. Watching old matches are a pain in the neck. Just for a comparison, in Willow all the matches are categorized by Date and Series seperately. Thats not the case in hotstar. When you have multiple languages for commentary, they should be categorized accordingly. Please stop throwing all in one folder and leave me with the task of searching a hidden gem. However the app is really good. I hope they improve the UI for sports.

The new update released does not work for Apple devices with ios 9 or less which is unfair. Some people have older Apple devices with Hotstar(with no capability to upgrade to new ios) and the app not working is forcing the hand in buying a new Apple device since you have already paid for subscription. This should be corrected.

doctorpuneet's Review of HotstarReviewed on 12/12/18 12:10 PM
If you ever had problem with the hotstar working, do not expect help from Customer service. They have hired most unhelpful agents who do not understand how customer service works and means. I lost of password and requested to reset giving them details about my account including purchase history, credit care information, my personal details but they said they can’t help if I cannot retrieve my personal email to which the password was going to. Unfortunately, I used an old email which I don’t use it anymore and don’t remember password, they said they will not provide me the password or reset link despite of all the credible information. It was disappointing. I have $99 subscription with them. Ultimately I was able to retrieve my old email password and access the us hotstar account else I would never be able to use $99 account.

Search the serial, look for episode and then fast forward to find the point where I was at. Absolutely frustrating experience every single time.

I then have to close the video go all the back to home screen and then play the video back. But it does not just simply resume! It starts from the beginning and you have to find and remember where it froze! It is just so annoying! After last update they fixed the subtitle thing. But today I found out that I can't find my last played videos on the home page. Why don't they have skip intro or next episode option like Netflix! Really you guys are doing a great job but please fix these problems for iPhone. Android version is much stable than Apple's.

When I called HotStar to cancel right away, they blamed Roku saying they don’t have my account. I called Roku and Roku is like a PayPal and they are a platform for TV service. At the end of the day, I ended up paying for a month $21.74 because they wouldn’t cancel.
akkiettan's Review of HotstarReviewed on 12/12/18 12:10 PM
Googled for apps streaming game of thrones, Hotstar site came up. In their website they didn’t mention a word about the content not being available in US till I subscribed for a year. The app itself has several issues like- 1. Gets stuck in the middle of a movie. Will have to exit and relaunch the movie to continue. 2. Much slower than Netflix. 3. There is no way to search with combination of filters like language, artists, genre, etc 4. Popular in lists stay the same and I have to scroll for several minutes to see something I have not seen yet. 5. Tons of tamil movies in hindi dubbed versions, but no originals 6. Tons of old flop movies 7. Search results display programs that say content is not available in my country after clicking on it 🤦♂️🤮 Overall, I would be really happy if I could get at least half of what I paid for a year in refund and you can cancel my subscription (used only for a month).

Drkarthikg's Review of HotstarReviewed on 12/11/17 3:22 AM
Good: 1. All available shows are in HD. 2. Streaming on Apple TV and iOS app are very good 3. Live cricket telecast on indian matches 4. Allows 2 screens at the same time Bad: 1. Higher subscription fee for no much content. You will feel disappointed when you find there is no live tv streaming and you cant find all your favorite shows,particularly if you come from YuppTV. 2. Apple Tv app keeps asking to activate the app every day, which is really annoying. 3. Program organization is not so user friendly and frustrating. You have to go through bunch of useless programs to find one or 2 shows that you watch. It would be great if programs can be filtered using date and have a section only for latest ongoing shows. 4. Shows won’t get added immediately after telecasted in india. Programs are available only after a day (after 12 AM EST) 5. Not all shows from star are available to watch. Particularly the international format shows like big boss. This is a deal breaker.

I pay monthly subscription. After logging in I am unable to see any programs. It still shows the same login page.

I have purchased subscription from Apple. However app doesn’t recognize purchase. When I try to start new trial it pops out a message that you already have an active subscription. Contacted Hotstar and got a suggestion to contact Apple. Contacted Apple and got a suggestion to contact Hotstar. My credit card is charged and I find it in iTunes subscriptions. However hotstar won’t activate membership. It is a mess between iTunes and hotstar.

Lots of videos I click are not available in my region. And a while back, the same videos were available. It’s very frustrating to search for something and then select it and then it gives you an error message. At least they shouldn’t show these videos. I also get notifications of videos and when I open them they are not available in my region 😡😡😡😡

I am loving it so far and quality is amazing. Please add old movies from 90s like chandni and other popular movies.

Psrinu's Review of HotstarReviewed on 1/10/19 12:56 PM
Pros: - Cheep option to see Indian content Cons: - app navigation is horrible: no filter for language at account level. You have to perform multiple steps to get to your language - not a love tv - not all the program from local channels are available: example Bigboss tv show is not available on Star Maa tv - not all the movies telecasted on local channel are not available Very disappointed with the app navigation and the content in this app.
Izzy5708's Review of HotstarReviewed on 1/10/19 12:56 PM
Downloaded this app in October to watch cricket and some Indian shows. Initially subscribed for the monthly plan to try it out. Looked good and worked so I got the yearly subscription. Couple months later my purchased vanished and I couldn’t use the app. After jumping through hoops and waiting about 2 weeks for developers to respond I contacted Apple and sorted out with them. App developers still haven’t gotten back to me about the issue. Now the app wants me to subscribe again to Hotstar premium. Complete scam. Do not subscribe.

Poor quality and waste of money.
Zenit19's Review of HotstarReviewed on 1/10/19 12:56 PM
They took away malayalam channels from dish network to make me watch through internet. I don’t want to take out my network speed for that. The customer service is the worst. Never get anyone or never get a call back.
NDPSLK's Review of HotstarReviewed on 1/10/19 12:56 PM
We paid yearly payment and what we got is not what we expected. We thought the episodes would be current but they are not. We can only see the episodes from day before for most of the shows. We expected this to be not live but at least current.

Even after waiting for 3 months into my annual membership, I have not received my Roku player. This is absolutely unprofessional way of doing business.
aieplane's Review of HotstarReviewed on 1/10/19 12:56 PM
Some my show do not have subtitles. It should have stayed on the television. Using the app on the phone is very depressing.
VRThota's Review of HotstarReviewed on 1/10/19 12:56 PM
Where is customer support? They kept the line on always busy mode. It looks like scam to loot people.
K. Seepersaud's Review of HotstarReviewed on 1/10/19 12:56 PM
So disappointed program from Star Bharat and some other channels do not have subtitles at all. Otherwise Hotstar is amazing. I will only continue with Hotstar if those channels mention above have subtitles.

This is very bad to ask premium membership for watching stupid MAA TV Telugu serials. Why I can’t watch with membership? This is very BAD..
doeswe's Review of HotstarReviewed on 1/10/19 12:56 PM
I can’t watch any serials form USA. I’m very disappointed that hotstar is not letting anyone watch anything there and whenever I try to watch it says not available in your country. I can’t believe people form USA watch the most and now we can’t watch it because it says not available. My only hope is to watch serials in hotstar with no problems.
