The Walt Disney Company is all set to launch the Disney Plus Hotstar version for its Indonesian audience this September.
The news came from Disney CEO Bob Chapek himself while presenting the Q3 earnings of Disney through a conference call. An official Twitter account of Disney Plus Hotstar Indonesia and a tweet later sealed the deal.
Chapek stated in his conference that, “I’m happy to announce that we will also be rolling out Disney Plus Hotstar on September 5 in Indonesia, one of the world’s most populous countries. By year-end, Disney+ will be available in nine of the top 10 economies in the world.”
Disney Plus Hotstar is a merger of Disney+ and Hotstar, a wildly successful streaming platform in India. The collaboration launched in March and has to-date attracted countless subscribers and users.
It caters to movies and TV shows for Disney Plus and successfully airs all the local Indian content, local news, and sports channels.
With COVID-19 at its peak and theatrical release of movies postpone, Disney Plus Hotstar’s new “Multiplex” has become a home for all the upcoming film releases directly on the platform.
The streaming site offers free content for its non-subscribers, while all the popular uploads remain for premium members only.
