Hotstar is the premium video streaming service basically provided in India. Here we’ll see the methods to get Hotstar premium service for free. Also, we do recommend to use paid services of Hotstar if you like it. But let start with what actually Hotstar is.
What is Hotstar?
So Hotstar is the streaming service now merged with Disney to provide Disney content also to its streaming platform. Hotstar has most of the content freely available and can be accessed easily if you are living in India. But if you are in the US then you cannot access any of the content of Hotstar freely. You need to use a Hotstar premium service only.
So in India, Hotstar provides most of the daily soap shows which are broadcasted on Star Plus are available for free. Below are the major content and plans available to binge-watch on Hotstar Premium Service and Hostar Free service.

How to get Hotstar Premium account for Free
Lets discuss about the ways you can get Hotstar Premium account for free or you can get it for minimal value.
1. Sharing of Hotstar Premium Account Username Password:
If you have a friend you is already using Hotstar Premium account then you can ask him to share his Hostar Premium user name password on sharing method. Currently, most of the people are using the Premium service on sharing basis. And it’s quite common practice to save money.
So, if you are a group of 4 people you can easily share the account details and watch the premium content easily.
Note: Hotstar do not allow sharing of username password. And only 1 person can access at a time.
2. Using Third-Party Apps to access Hotstar Premium Account
Well, we do not recommend using this tip to use Hotstar premium service as these apps can steal your personal data from phone which can go to sale on the black market. But still, if you are desired to use it then you can use an app called OreoTv.
OreoTV basically provides most of the Hotstar content for free but don’t think to get the service same as Hotstar premium with security concerns of course. There are other similar apps are also present which can be used but this is the one which is quite good overall in free contents.
3. Get a Jio Sim to use Hotstar Premium
Yes, you heard it right. You can use full Hotstar Premium service for free if you have Jio Sim with active subscriptions for incoming and outgoing calls. So once you have Jio number all you can do is install Hotstar App from here and JioTV App from here and just start exploring all the channels which come under Star.
But there is a limitation to Hotstar Premium service by Jio is that you can only access Live Channels and Streams such as Hotstar Live Cricket Streaming. You cannot watch Hotstar Premium foreign web series, movies with premium and all another premium related content.
Alternative to Hotstar: Netflix and Amazon Prime
In my view, Amazon prime membership is the best alternative currently present in India market as it cost only Rs 999/Year. And if you have 4-5 people then you can buy it for Rs 250/Year. Which is Just Rs 21/Year which is quite reasonable value right?
On Another hand with the same group of people, you can get Netflix at Rs 200/Month each person. Which is quite costly in term of money. But tough Netflix has more content you can get Hotstar and Amazon prime membership in less than the total cost of Netflix subscriptions yearly cost.
There are other plenty of options which I cannot talk on my blog. If you want a special offer code or free premium account for a few months we will provide a giveaway. Please comment in the comment box with proper email and few of you will get a premium account of Hotstar.
