After years of anticipation, Disney’s video streaming service called, Disney+ or Disney Plus was finally released last week, but Indian users will have to wait a bit longer as the service will arrive in India by the second half of 2020.
There will be no different app for Disney Plus as the service will be arriving in the Indian market via Hotsar, media reports said. The announcement was made by Hotstar India on its Twitter handle.
So far, there is no official announcement on the news, but Hotstar released the information while replying to a query on Disney+ coming to India saying, “Hi, We are working on bringing Disney+ to India. The launch date is yet to be announced; stay tuned. Thank you!”
