Telecom companies Airtel and Jio are now offering VIP subscribers of Disney+ Hotstar an upgrade to a premium subscription. Both telcos have been offering premium membership of Disney+ Hotstar to its prepaid customers.
How to upgrade
Disney+ Hotstar VIP users must log in to their account.
Tap on the upgrade option, which will show an option to upgrade to Premium by paying the balance amount.
The subscribers will have to pay an amount depending on the remaining time period of the VIP subscription. The balance amount will be deducted from the Disney+ Hotstar VIP annual subscription fee.
Until recently, as per Disney+ Hotstar did not consider promotional offers or coupons as direct purchases, and hence, did not allow users to upgrade to a premium membership. Earlier, one had to subscribe separately for the premium membership. However, now, users can upgrade by logging into their accounts and paying the remaining balance.
VIP subscribers can watch on one screen, while premium subscribers can have access to two screens of FHD quality. VIP users get only dubbed audio, while premium users get English as well as dubbed audio.
