What is Disney+ Hotstar Malaysia?
The association between Disney Plus and Star India’s streaming service Hotstar platform resulted in Disney Plus Hotstar. Later in 2019, the acquisition of 21st Century Fox by Disney brought about Disney Plus Hotstar.
With Hotstar India’s infrastructure, Disney expanded its content library with a to z Tamil movies and other local content.
The branding Disney+ Hotstar was later introduced in Disney+ Indonesia, which is now followed in Malaysia. Similarly, Disney Plus Singapore and Disney+ Thailand have different branding as well.
Astro and Disney Plus Hotstar in Malaysia
Similar to Hotstar India, Astro is a subscription-based streaming platform in Malaysia. Disney+ Hotstar has collaborated with Astro in the capacity of an official distributor.
This makes it easier for existing Astro subscribers of Movies Pack to add on Disney+ Hotstar for a minimal amount. Alternatively, new customers can subscribe to the content library of Disney Hotstar with various value bundles.
However, it is essential to note that Astro does NOT solely distribute Disney Plus Hotstar. Instead, customers can directly stream Disney Plus via apps and other mobile devices or platforms.
How a VPN Service Will Help You Watch Disney+ in a Geo-Restricted Country?
The internet with which you browse has your local IP address. So what it means is that if you are in Malaysia, your internet connection will reflect your location as Malaysia.
Did you know that Disney+ restricts the IP address of the regions where it has not launched officially? Now you do! This includes countries like South Africa and Israel. Thus you won’t be able to watch Disney Plus in Israel or South Africa.
Hence a VPN service is essential to conceal and change your local IP address with Disney Plus’s officially launched locations. Therefore connecting to a US server with your VPN, the Disney+ tracker gets tricked by your camouflage IP address and thinks you reside in the USA. Thus, it allows you to access Disney Plus and stream the content.
