Disney+ Hotstar had officially launched in Malaysia yesterday and with it another streaming service for the market which viewers have to choose if it is worth signing up for or not.
There is no doubt that over the next few months we are going to continue seeing new streaming services arrive in Malaysia with the cinemas shut and many production companies looking at releasing their latest content direct to TV.
Disney+ Hotstar is no different in Malaysia and with its acquisition of Marvel, it is causing quite the storm with its mini-series featuring the superheroes alongside the Star Wars Mandalorian series.
However can Malaysians afford to pay for another monthly service? It seems like Disney might be catching on to this and a recent tweet by @zhafvlog shows that Apple device owners are seeing another much cheaper option to subscribe to which works out to around RM5 per month only. Other device users however have not gotten this chance yet.
The RM62.90 per year plan is ideal for those who want a new plan but not sure of the high fees to commit to. Potentially they may only try the service for a year until their favourites are all watched and exhausted for.
Do you think this new Disney+ Hotstar subscription plan is worth the wait or will you signup for the standard monthly plan?
