    Hotstar's streaming service is very good engineering wise, it works well even when slow internet services in India.

      This was the first time I heard of them... But looks like they are killing it

      They are pretty huge in India, more subscribers than Amazon prime and Netflix put together

      Bleeding money like crazy though. Most use free ads sponsored subscription, which is a net loss. Still impressive subscriber growth though even though it’s not revenue positive. Something like only 3% is paid subscription.

      Disney will most likely shut it down once they migrate hotstar users to Disney+ in India

      Aren't they using Akamai for Cdn hosting and live streaming? They are not scaled to handle 10MM Tps

    • It was not acquired by Fox, it was incubated as part of 21st Century Fox’s Star India (a Fox company)

    The App is so shitty. During worldcup with 16mn viewers, the quality of stream became horrible

    Good time for a careers page too. With Disney, Warner, and NBCUniversal all launching major streaming initiatives this space is about to get interesting.

    It mainly streams sports content. Below average selection of movies or independent content. It has hit bonanza by owning IPL streaming rights and few other sports leagues.
