Netflix vs Amazon Prime vs Disney+ Hotstar

While the new price reduction of Netflix plans is tempting, the membership chargers and offerings are still quite expensive when compared to Amazon Prime or even Disney+ Hotstar. However, not forget, Netflix offers better and premium content when compared to its rivals.

With the increase in prices, Amazon Prime yearly membership costs Rs 500 more than earlier. Starting today, it is available at a price of RS 1499, previously priced at Rs 999. The monthly and quarterly plans are now available at Rs 179 (previously Rs 129) and Rs 459 (previously Rs 329), respectively. The benefit of a Prime membership is that, alongside subscription to the streaming platform, it offers shopping benefits and subscription to its Music streaming platform.

Disney+ Hotstar, on the other hand, now starts at a price of Rs 499 with single screen support. The streaming platform increased the prices of its subscription plans beginning September 1. The other two plans are priced at Rs 899 and Rs 1499 a year with support for more devices and screens at a time.

All three streaming platforms have their own set of pros and cons. Netflix offers a wide range of original and premium content, while Amazon Prime offers much more than just video content. Disney+ Hotstar, on the other hand, offers all cricket matches and other shows exclusively on the platform, which are not available on other platforms. So, to understand which platform is best for you, it all depends on the kind of content you watch.
