Asia Cup 2023: Disney+ Hotstar allows free streaming of Asia Cup 2023 and ODI World Cup 2023 for Mobile Users: Disney+ Hotstar will stream the Asia Cup and World Cup 2023 for free in India. Disney+ Hotstar paid a record fee for the rights, but they are making it available for free to attract new users and increase their market share in India.

This is a big deal because the streaming rights for these tournaments are usually very expensive. The Asia Cup 2023 is scheduled to be held in Sri Lanka and Pakistan from August 30 to September 17, 2023. The ICC ODI World Cup 2023 is going to be played in India from October 5 to November 19, 2023.

Both events will be played in one-day international (ODI) format. This will be the first time that Disney+ Hotstar has streamed major sporting events for free. In 2023, Jio, the streaming rival of Disney+ Hostar, streamed the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 for free.

This move is part of their strategy to become the leading streaming platform in India. Overall, this is a big win for cricket fans in India. They will be able to watch the Asia Cup and World Cup 2023 for free, thanks to Disney+ Hotstar.

Why is Disney+ Hotstar Streaming Asia Cup 2023 and World Cup 2023 for Free?

Disney+ Hotstar is streaming the Asia Cup and World Cup 2023 for free to attract new users and increase its market share in India. Other streaming sites, such as Jio Cinema, Amazon Prime Video and Sony Liv, pose a significant threat to the company.

By airing the Tournaments for free, Disney+ Hotstar aims to get an advantage over its competitors and attract more viewers. It will be interesting to see whether this move by Disney+ Hotstar will be beneficial for them or it will be their end.

Disney+ Hotstar vs Jio Cinema:

Since Last year, Disney+ Hotstar and Jio Cinema have been fighting for the streaming rights to big sporting events. In 2023, Jio Cinema paid a record fee of around $2.9 billion for the IPL digital streaming rights from 2023 to 2027.

The move by Disney+ Hotstar to watch the Asia Cup 2023 and ICC ODI World Cup 2023 for free shows that the streaming company wants to regain its market share after getting a massive loss in subscribers due to the IPL 2023.
