With the new plans, the streaming platform is focussing on video quality and the number of devices on which content can be streamed simultaneously. While the plans focussed more on content availability. Because Hotstar VIP members had no access to Disney Originals, Hollywood movies, and international content. 
Hotstar VIP plan was mostly focussing on the Indian content. With the new plans, Hotstar is making its content accessible to all paid users. However, the video quality and the number of devices will vary as per the plan. 
The company has also introduced a new mobile-only plan similar to other competitors such as Netflix and Amazon prime video. But Hotstar subscription is still more affordable in comparison to competitors.  

The existing subscription plans of Hotstar are still available. So if you want the VIP subscription worth Rs. 399 then you can still purchase it. With the new mobile plan which will be available starting 1 September, users will also get access to Disney+ Originals, Hollywood movies, and more content. 

What is your reaction to the new plans of Hotstar? Do you think Hostar VIP is better than the mobile plan. With Hotstar VIP, you get access to limited content, but you also get the option to watch across all devices.
