It's IPL season and fans are more excited than ever before. Thanks to the COVID-19 lockdown fatigue. This year's IPL is completely different with a new venue (UAE), new sponsors (Dream11), and possibly no live audiences cheering for their favourite players. The Indian Premier League is livestreamed on Disney+ Hotstar VIP and the app is adding some new social gaming features for fans to interact and engage with millions of others out there. Disney+ Hotstar VIP has added new features to the interactive Watch’N Play social feed. Let's get into the details now.
As before, IPL viewers on Disney+ Hotstar app will be able to replicate their emotions using customised emojis that can be accessed below the feed of the cricket match.
Coming to new features for IPL 2020, Disney+ Hotstar is adding the ability to add ‘Hotshots’ selfies or 'Duets' videos allowing fans to create customized videos showcasing their rendition of famous shots and reactions of their favorite Dream 11 IPL Heroes.
The best ones will be broadcast on Star Sports TV channels.
Notably, IPL 2020 will not be available for streaming for non-Disney+ Hotstar subscribers, even for a few minutes. Users will have to subscribe to either Disney+ Hotstar VIP at Rs 399/year or Disney+ Hotstar Premium at Rs 1,499/year to access live cricket matches.
To make this process easy for Indian customers, Disney+ Hotstar has tied up with Jio and Airtel to offer attractive telecom bundled packs to make Disney+ Hotstar accessible to more customers.
