Can I watch Hotstar outside India? How to register a Hotstar account? How to pay for Hotstar?
Hotstar India is one of the best streaming services in the world. At Hotstar India, you can watch cricket, Premier League, Disney+ movies and TV shows, HBO content, and much more. But, how can I watch Hotstar outside India?
I will split this article into three parts. Read the part that you are interested in.
I have a Hotstar account, but I am outside India. How can I watch Hotstar?
If you are in Europe and try to visit Hotstar, you will see a screen looking like this.
If you want to watch Hotstar India, you will need to get an Indian IP address. The best way to get an Indian IP address that will help you watch Hotstar outside India, is to use the VPN services of SurfsharkVPN.
I have included a link to the SurfsharkVPN website below. They have a 30-day money-back guarantee on their VPN services, so if you do not like it, you can easily ask for a full refund.
You can use one SurfsharkVPN subscription on more than 10 devices at the same time. SurfsharkVPN has applications for Windows, Linux, Macintosh, iOS, Android, FireTV, and more platforms.
When you have purchased your SurfsharkVPN subscription, download their VPN application and connect to a server in India.
You can now visit hotstar.com and watch all the content available!
A VPN will encrypt your online activities. As a result, nobody will be able to spy on your activities. Besides this, you can also use the VPN to change your IP address. As a result, you can bypass geographical blocks, making you able to watch Hotstar outside India, to watch BBC outside the UK, to watch NBC outside the USA, and so much more.
I have a registered Hotstar account, but my subscription has expired, and I cannot renew it because I need an Indian payment card to pay for the subscription!
You need a VISA/MasterCard or some other payment card registered in India to pay for your Hotstar subscription. This is really complicated if you do not live in India. But, there is a way to fix this.
You can register a Fiverr account and let the following user do the job for you. This is a person in India who will help you pay for Hotstar, and of course, they will earn a little bit from doing the job. I have used this service myself several times, and it works very well and is very quick.
When you visit the Fiverr website, create an account and contact the seller directly (send the seller a message). You will then get all the instructions and help you need from there.
I don’t have a Hotstar account and I live outside India
This isn’t easy. To register a Hotstar account, you need an Indian phone number. You cannot use free Indian SMS services online, because they do not work. So, you can try to contact the person with the Fiverr job above, but it will most likely not help you.
So, find some person in India on a chat channel, on Facebook, on social media, on Steemit, or somewhere else. Ask if they would be so kind and register a Hotstar account for you. If they do that, then you can go back to step number two in order to pay for the actual Hotstar subscription when your account is ready.
