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.
