KUALA LUMPUR, June 2 Disney+ Hotstar has officially rolled out in Malaysia yesterday with a single subscription option of RM54.90 for 3 months.
If you check out the listing on the Apple AppStore, it appears that there are two additional options that are significantly cheaper.
According to the In-App Purchases section at the bottom of the listing, you will find a total of three subscription options:
Disney+ Hotstar Quarterly    RM54.90
Disney+ Hotstar Monthly    RM11.90
Disney+ Hotstar Annual    RM62.90
If you do a comparison, the current RM54.90 quarterly plan costs RM18.30/month, which is more expensive than the monthly subscription.
Whats even more interesting is that the annual plan only costs RM62.90 for a full year which is effectively RM5.24/month.
However, theres no option for you to select a monthly or annual subscription for now.
When we try to sign up on an iOS device, the app only provides a single RM54.90/3 months option on the subscription page.
It isnt clear if this is a mistake or could this be new options that might be rolled out in the future. We cant seem to find these monthly and annual plans on the Google Play Store and the official website.
As a comparison, Disney+ Hotstar is significantly cheaper in Indonesia.
Their monthly plan costs 39,000 Indonesian rupiah (about RM11.29) while the annual option is only IDR 199,000 (about RM57.60).
If youre an Astro Movies Pack customer, Disney+ Hotstar is already included in your plan since they have increased the price by RM5 extra for all Movies Pack customers.
To activate it, youll have to link your mobile number to your Astro ID here.
Unlike most video streaming platforms, Disney+ Hotstar uses your phone number and a 4-digit SMS verification code to login. SoyaCincau
