Hotstar, the Indian streaming giant owned by Disney, sets a new record of witnessing maximum number of online streamers i.e. 18.6 million users during the final tournament of IPL’s 12th edition. The video streaming company broke its own record of 10.3 million concurrent users during the last year’s IPL season.
Today Hotstar has more than 300 million monthly active users while the others like Netflix and Prime Video struggle with less than 30 million subscribers in India.
Not only in India, but Hotstar is even popular in foreign countries like US, Canada, and the UK, where Indians living overseas are desperate to watch Bollywood movies and cricket online.
