Giving tough competition to both Netflix and Amazon Prime is India’s OTT offering Disney+ Hotstar or simply Hotstar. Despite these two international companies gaining popularity in the Indian market, Hotstar still remains the dominant domestic player. Owned by Novi Digital Entertainment, a subsidiary of Star India, the media service provider has two tiers of paid subscription: the "VIP" tier and a "Premium" tier. While the first one is focused on domestic programs and sports content, like the IPL, the latter is for premium international films and TV series. Available in Hindi, English and regional languages like Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Marathi and Bengali, Hotstar boasts of a database of minimum 300mn active users. Headquartered in Mumbai, its content can also be seen in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.
