I heard was forced to pay rm5 extra. Unifi did not add any extra when they give disney plus. Maybe they save a lot.

Not heard memang by default already added in. laugh.gif
Yeah, I also have UniFi TV Ultimate package hence free for me. tongue.gif The only issue is now UniFi screwed up my phone no., ended up it’s having the same phone no. as Astro Disney Hotstar. Now I have one account with two subscriptions. doh.gif
UniFi FAQ mentions the registered no. can be changed after 30 days, I will do it. Then I can watch on 4 screens simultaneously rather than only two screens now.

Similar to how Unifi's app are re-subscribed monthly, your Hotstar account is renewed every 3 months. Astro are doing it by bulk, and that IMO is actually the reply from Hotstar to Astro, which Astro should not have forwarded to their user. I presume they forgot to turn it off

I also received this SMS, technically you are paying it every month right? It has been added into our Movie pack by default when they introduced Hotstar in June 2021. Movie pack users are forced to pay additional RM 5 every month.

then later i got a another sms

RM0 ASTRO: Please ignore the earlier SMS sent in error. We apologise for the inconveniences caused. Thank You.

Hotstar’s SG exit rumoured
No confirmation from Disney, StarHub

Disney is rumoured to be reconsidering the future of its Hotstar streaming brand, at least in Singapore, where the Indian entertainment and sports service is offered both direct to consumer for S$69.98/US$51 a year and as part of StarHub’s S$15/US$11 a month India+ package with a 24-month contract.

Neither Disney nor StarHub has confirmed or denied the rumours, which run alongside bidding for the 2023-2027 Indian Premier League (IPL) rights.

India’s Board of Control for Cricket opens the auction on 12 June.

As of today (30 May), StarHub continues to offer Hotstar as part of a 24-month contract and is promoting exclusive live coverage of India vs. South Africa from 26 December 2022.

Singapore is the sole market in Asia where Hotstar is offered as a separate standalone from the full Disney+ streaming platform. In lower-cost markets, the platform is marketed as Disney+ Hotstar.

In addition to live cricket, including the Indian Premiere League (IPL), Hotstar in Singapore offers all the Star India content, including Tamil shows, as well as Hotstar Specials premium drama.

Pre-Disney, in 2017, Star is said to have paid US$2.5 billion for combined broadcast/digital rights for five years, making the IPL 2018-2022 the world’s most expensive cricket property and giving Hotstar record global streaming audiences.

Speculation this time around is that the final amount paid for all rights could reach US$7 billion. The most valuable are Indian subcontinent broadcast, with a base price of more than INR180 billion/US$2.4 billion for all 370 games across the five years. Bidders include Amazon, Reliance, Disney/Star India, and Sony/Zee.

Other sources have told ContentAsia that Disney may also be considering a single united brand for Disney+, which would mean the Hotstar brand is being retired and content delivered as part of Disney+.

Disney sees our countries as their "low cost markets". And yet we don't get to choose to opt for the standalone Disney+ like Singapore dry.gif

Yes. Please. We want to have the choice to enjoy same great Disney+ experience as other countries do, not the Hots**t version. Thanks in advance.

Malaysia’s Astro reworks Korean line-up
K-Plus added to Korean Pack, Oh!K exits after 7 years
user posted image
QUOTE
Malaysian platform Astro has reworked its K-content line up, adding K-Plus to TV and streaming/on-demand platforms as part of the Korean Pack that also includes One, CJ ENM’s tvN and KBS World.
The revised pack signals the end of Astro’s carriage relationship with Warner Bros Discovery’s Korean channel, Oh!K, which goes dark at midnight on Tuesday (31 May) after about seven years on the platform.
The new K-plus carriage agreement adds drama, variety and music content to the platform, including titles such as The Killer’s Shopping List, Show Champion, Knowing Bros, House of Lies, Melancholia and The One and Only.
In another reorg, Astro is dropping Arabic movie channel, Art Movies, from 31 May. The platform is not replacing the channel.

TBH Korean content on OHK are outdated. If Astro adds VIU to its streaming lineup, that would be a comprehensive Korean content coverage, in addition to Netflix & Disney Hotstar. As for the linear channels, I guess Arirang is not on Astro as it focuses on news and documentaries with little drama and entertainment content, like RTM.

Singapore is not one of the Disney+ Hotstar market tho, they have the American Disney+ service. So this won't affect us even if Hotstar (which is actually to cater for the Indian expats living in Singapore) exits that country

Dependa on who is watching. I only care about Japanese drama.
I honestly think majority of Malaysians are fine with what the offering is right now.
