Initially, Hotstar was an Indian-only streaming service. However, its growing popularity and the reason that many Indian expats were living abroad compelled the owner, Novi Digital Entertainment, to expand the service to the UK, US and Canada.
Regardless, the streaming service delivers a power-pack TV shows and soaps, local and foreign movies and India’s favorite sports, Cricket.
Another aspect that Hotstar fans adore about the service is that it is compatible with a wide range of devices, including all the most-used devices such as Windows, Mac, Android, Chromecast and Apple TV, to name a few.
Indians just can’t live without Hotstar because it offers them a platform where they can watch top shows like “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai” or sports like “ICC T20 World Cup” free of cost.
But the most dreadful thing for the fans is that the service isn’t available outside India, UK, US, and Canada.
But, if you are moving to Australia for any reason, you have to bid farewell to Hotstar. The streaming service won’t work in Australia, even if you are a premium member.
Worried that you would miss out on many TV continuations while you are in Australia? No, PureVPN would keep that misery out of your life.
You need a virtual private network like PureVPN to watch Hotstar in Australia. Wonder, how?
Hotstar follows a somewhat similar method of tracking users’ locations as other streaming services. Needless to say, Netflix uses the same mechanism and so as Hulu.
It is your Internet Protocol (IP) address that gives off your location. The streaming service keeps an eye on the IPs accessing the content. As soon as a restricted IP tries to access the service, the system would immediately stop that IP from further accessing anything.
Moreover, the system would show the user an error message that informs the user that the content isn’t available in their country.
However, PureVPN lets you turn the table without alerting the Hotstar tracking system. When you connect to PureVPN’s Indian server, you will get an Indian IP address.
Once Hotstar sees that an Indian IP is asking for permission to access the content, it allows the IP to do so. As a result, you get to watch Hotstar in Australia easily.
Here’s how you can get access to the streaming service in your country:
Accessing Hotstar with a VPN may not be the end of your worries if the VPN you are using fails to perform well on your device. You may experience slow speed. You may experience continue connection drop.
