As per the Disney support team, the reply is quite straightforward forward doesn’t let you know what’s the actual reason behind such an issue. They said, “We will not be able to take part in this opportunity at the moment.” Now you may ask then, what’s the reason?

Well, we should mention that the Disney Plus Hotstar application and web platform is already available in India to stream all the uploaded content including sports, movies, news, TV shows, web series, and more. As the service has its own app and platform with its own subscription plan and a wide range of users across the country, Disney may not be interested in bringing its content on consoles.

Meanwhile, Disney has announced new subscription plans for the Disney Plus Hostar service which will gonna come into effect from September 1, 2021. In the end, it completely depends on Disney what to do because they can easily bring out a console-specific app that can offer all the existing content which are available for mobile and web users. So, both the situation and decision are quite amusing right now.
