However, once the membership expires, you must pay 499 rupees per year for the Disney Plus Hotstar Mobile plan. The downside is that you will only be able to use content on mobile devices. You can continue to watch free content on all platforms, including Web and Living Room devices.

As there are no changes to higher plans, Premium will continue to receive all content. However, you will get support for 4 simultaneous displays, not just 2.
