    "I'd never heard of Hotstar but I read an article about it in a magazine and thought I'd try it out. It is a pretty good service for downloading some tv series, relatively unknown movies and an array of sports are also available via the app. I really liked that the service was free! With the free service though, the overall content is limited. So if you are looking for a lot of content you may want to look elsewhere, but if you'd like something free that might be a good addition to a service you already have and for free - then Hotstar is a good choice!"

    "The Hotstar site was not available to view in the US so I was directed to the US Hotstar site. What was interesting is that it did not have nearly the selection the first site had. The first site had lots of different movies and tv shows, both Hindi and American, but the "US" site only had Hindi options. This is not something I am interested in. "
