Disney+ Hotstar India launch April 3

Entertainment giant Disney has just announced the India launch date for its streaming service, Disney+. The company will formally launch its much anticipated Disney+ Hotstar service on April 3, 2020. This announcement comes weeks after the company conducted a limited test for some users in India. The new date comes just weeks after the company postponed the initial launch plans. Disney had initially planned to launch the service on March 29 with the start of the Indian Premier League (IPL). This delay likely happened due to the ongoing global pandemic coronavirus. Coronavirus has delayed IPL while pushing the entire country in a three-week-long lock-down. The new launch date is just about a week after the initial launch. As part of the launch, the rest of the details remain somewhat identical. Also Read - Here's why Disney+ Hotstar India roll out is delayed
