Bundled offers for OTT platforms are becoming more popular than we expected. Membership for services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney+ Hotstar can often be seen bundled with the purchase of new gadgets or even with prepaid recharge plans. However, this doesn’t mean all OTT platforms you see on the web are legit. We recently spotted a fake Disney+ Hotstar membership being sold on Flipkart for a price of just Rs 99.

The fake listing on Flipkart was apparently selling a year’s membership of Disney+ Hotstar for just Rs 99. Check out the screenshot which looks very real and believable. However, it is not. A year-long membership for the streaming-service costs Rs 399 per year. The listing has since been taken down, thankfully. However, it is imperative that users do not fall for scams like this, which will eventually pop up again. Also Read - Disney+ Hotstar finally adds 4K streaming for supported TVs

There are plenty of scamsters out there on eCommerce portals like Amazon and Flipkart trying to dupe you of your money. They come off as lucrative offering something expensive at an unrealistically low price. However, these offers, deals, and other “grab-it-before-its-gone” scams are definitely not real. Always look for the plans of an OTT membership straight from the official sources. A golden rule of thumb to follow while shopping for pretty much anything online is this – If it seems too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.
