Are you a great fan of Indian series and movies? If yes, then you should turn your direction towards Hotstar and watch whatever you want to.

Hotstar is India’s largest platform to watch premium entertainment stuff. It has a watch time of a hundred thousand hours. Hotstar not only streams movies and series but also other content like sports, entertainment shows, talk shows, and some other stuff.

Hotstar does not allow you to download videos legally. But, with every problem, there comes a solution. If you’re unable to download content the legal way, you should try it from some other ways.
