Back in April this year, Astro added Disney+ Hotstar to its 4K-enabled Ultra Box, but the more affordable HD Ulti Box did not have the service…until now. Beginning today, you can start streaming Disney+ Hotstar on the Astro Ulti Box.
This makes it more compelling to purchase Astro TV packs that have Disney+ Hotstar bundled together; the most affordable one right now is the Movies Pack for RM59.99/month (only for six months). If you want both Disney+ Hotstar and Netflix in the same TV pack, there’s Premium Pack 3 for RM99.99/month (also only for six months).
It’s worth noting that access to HBO GO is also offered in the Premium Pack 3 bundle.
Of course, you don’t have to purchase these TV packs to access Disney+ Hotstar on Astro’s Ulti Box. As long as you have an active subscription to the streaming service, you can log on to it without any issue. It’s just a little bit more convenient to include the subscription cost into a single bill, especially if you fancy other content in the TV pack.
To access Disney+ Hotstar on the Astro Ulti Box, just find for the streaming service on the home screen. If you’re already subscribed to a TV pack that includes the streaming service, follow the instructions below to get your login ID.
