With Disney+ joining forces with Hotstar to launch in India, one of the most popular streaming platforms in India received even more recognition and scores of additional Disney titles, including movies, documentaries, series and cartoons.
One of the major appeals of Hotstar has been that it offers seven native Indian languages — Hindi, Bengali, Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil, Marathi, Kannada — in addition to English and this also carries over for the available subtitles on the platform.
Hotstar’s collaboration with Disney+ brought a vast collection of titles and most of the ones not in the native language have an option of turning on the subtitles to make it easier to understand.
If the audio is muffled or you’re unable to understand the accents, here is how you can enable subtitles in Hotstar on Android and iOS app, as well as their website on PC.
