Watch Hotstar from anywhere in the world

Online movie and TV streaming services like Netflix and Hulu have certainly changed the way these forms of media are being distributed. More and more users are subscribing to these services while more and more media companies are starting to launch their own versions to cash in on the trend. Hotstar is one such video streaming platform, and it is very notable in India. However, viewers outside of India will be disappointed to know that it doesn't work overseas. In order to get around this problem, the best thing to do would be to use a VPN. The Hotstar VPN by Truong Cymink is a VPN made specifically for Hotstar.

What is Hotstar and Hotstar VPN

Hotstar is a video streaming platform owned by Star India Private Limited’s subsidiary, Novi Digital Entertainment Private Limited. It has over 50,000 hours of movies and TVs ready for viewing. It also shows major sports events with live broadcasting.  Unfortunately, Hotstar is not available outside of India, but with the use of Hotstar VPN, viewers will be able to access Hotstar from overseas. Hotstar VPN has many servers, all of which are from volunteers. Users can also add their own tools as a server to help the app and other viewers.

The Hotstar VPN Performance

Sadly, the Hotstar VPN is very disappointing in terms of performance. It's easy enough to install. Just follow the standard procedure of downloading and running the installer file to get it going. Unfortunately, that's pretty much the only thing positive about it.  All of the servers offered by the app are from volunteers which means there are no dedicated servers that could ensure quick connections and high speeds. Unsurprisingly, connecting to the server takes a bit of time. Though the app states that the user has connected to the server, it's unclear whether the VPN is already running or not. Speeds are also not affected, although it may be because the VPN isn't working.  The biggest problem with this app, however, is its obnoxious ads. This app has a lot of ads, and you’d be faced with an ad two or three times even without doing anything on the screen.

Find Something Else

Rather than Hotstar VPN, it might be a better idea to invest on an actual VPN like Windscribe or ExpressVPN. These other VPNs will serve you well and serve you better than Hotstar VPN. You’ll be able to watch Hotstar as well as do a wide range of things with real VPNs.
