Hotstar has been rebranded to Disney+ Hotstar ahead of the launch of Disney’s new streaming service (Disney+) on the Disney-owned streaming service (Hotstar) later this March at the start of the 2020 Indian Premier League season. The new branding is now available on both Android and iOS, after first debuting Monday on the former. Disney+’s blue colour theme has replaced Hotstar’s green one, with both “Hotstar Premium” and “Hotstar VIP” also remodelling their icons — just the letters “P” and “V” instead of the old crown and star, respectively — and dropping “Hotstar”.

The new branding — Disney+ Hotstar — comes alongside the arrival of content from Disney’s back catalogue, including movies such as Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Cars 3, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, and A Bug’s Life, and TV shows in Gravity Falls, Timon & Pumbaa, Disney The Lion Guard, Mickey Mouse (Shorts), Doc McStuffins, Tangled: The Series, Aaron Stone, Jungle Junction, and Sofia The First. Most, if not all, of the new content in available in four languages: English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. VIP users get access to everything, but you need Premium for English-language.
