My friend who lives in India recently purchased a 65U7H Hisense VIDAA Smart TV. He was looking for the best streaming apps to watch movies, series, and live TV in one place. I suggested him install Disney+ Hotstar on Hisense Smart TV. The Disney+ Hotstar app is compatible with his TV model, so I guided him to install the app from the App Store.
Disney+ Hotstar requires a Super or Premium subscription to access. So, I told him to subscribe to any plan by visiting (hotstar.com/paywall).
In addition to VIDAA, Hisense Smart TVs are available in other operating systems such as Google TV, Android TV, and Roku. So, I have explained the procedures to get the Hotstar app on all Hisense TVs.
