Cricket fans can rejoice as Hotstar, India’s premium video streaming service dedicated to live cricket and entertainment, is set to launch in Singapore on November 1.
Audiences in Singapore will soon have front-row seats to a diverse mix of content covering live cricket matches, original movie series and premieres, shows from Star Vijay and Star Plus, as well as live news – all on one mobile application.
Subscribers of the mobile application will gain free access to the last four Dream11 IPL 2020 league matches, including CSK vs KXIP (6pm) and KKR vs RR (10pm) on November 1; DC vs RCB (10pm) on November 2; and SRH vs MI (10pm) on November 3.
Consumers in Singapore can subscribe to the service directly through the Hotstarwebsite (www.hotstar.com/sg) or the Hotstar app on Android or iOS devices for a subscription fee of S$69.98 (US$51.65) per year.
The service will be available on connected TV devices such as Apple TV, Android TV and Google Chromecast. All Hotstar users will also have access to two concurrent streams and unlimited download (excluding live feed) per device.
Furthermore, Hotstar has collaborated with StarHub, Singapore’s pay-TV provider, to make the streaming service accessible with Indian+ on StarHub TV+ service. Alternatively, all StarHub Indian+ subscribers on a 12- or 24-month contract will be able to access Hotstar, including the highly anticipated Dream11 Indian Premier League 2020 Playoffs and Final, starting November 1 at no additional charges.
