One more way to watch IPL free is use tata sky app and activate star sports 1,2 or Hindi. Tatasky setup box is needed in this case. This is the cheapest method, however if anyone knows better method pleas let me know…

I used to follow the same thing all these years, but this year I’m unable to watch it through Tata sky. It’s asking me to subscribe for a VIP plan to continue watching live IPL2020.
Do let me know if you are able to watch it through Tata sky app

yes same problem with tata sky


Shame on hotstar, IPL is losing its popularity. It should be broadcast free as it was always. It’s broke billions peoples heart. What I m paying for watching advertisements ? don’t promote VIP aur premium subscription like that.
Viewers of hotstar reduced drastically, they have to broadcast free.
just simple trick to bypass time limit and make available free for you.


Best Free option is only Thoptv they provide many sources so atleast one source worked yesterday they were down still some of sources working on thop tv. u have to check all

Hassle free option is hotstar subsciption which comes jio or airtel recharge instead of purchasing direct along with monthly cellular data & calling plan.

min plan  222 1 year hotstar not for all users this is only for who have yearly plan

Other than this dont waste time anywhere every other link will be banned immideately by disney.

RC222 is fine, will give you 1 year subscription along with 15gb internet

I’ve a doubt. If I recharge with a jio plan which is giving annual subscription of hotstar but the validity of jio plan is only 56 days. Still hotstar will continue if I don’t recharge again?

Even though its yearly subscription, you need to stay with JIO for 1 year to watch in HOTSTAR VIP contents. If you don’t recharge after 56 days, then obviously HOTSTAR vip will not work.

Yes..Its a yearly subscription.

No, you answer was wrong. If he didn’t recharge again, he can’t watch VIP HOTSTAR contents. Need to stay with JIO for 1 year to get that contents for free.


Can we watch Ipl on Android tv using 399 plan? Because this message suggests otherwise.


I am using hotstar vip using airtel 599 plan. Dont see any settings option in the app. Hate the autoplay of videos everytime you open the app. Consumes data and is annoying too. Any option to turn off the auto play / preview of videos on hotstar app?
