Disney’s ad-free video streaming service Disney+ launches in the United States today and while its content may still be some time away from Indian audiences, there is no doubt the platform will have a lot to offer fans when it does reach the country. For starters, Disney is unlikely to launch the platform in India and, instead, route the original content created for the new OTT (over-the-top) service and its movie library to Indian audiences through Hotstar, the video streaming service owned by Star India, Livemint reported.
Hotstar plans to localise Disney+ movies and shows by dubbing or by adding subtitles in Indian languages, including Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. Hotstar’s original content titled Hotstar Specials is currently available in seven Indian languages.
