The live streaming services will be free on the mobile application of Disney+ Hotstar.

The team of Disney+ Hotstar have announced that they will not charge a single penny from the viewers during the matches of the ODI Asia Cup 2023 and also when the ODI World Cup 2023 event will start in India.

As mentioned earlier in this post, Disney+ Hotstar will be giving their paid services for free during the two main events like the ODI Asia Cup 2023 and ODI World Cup 2023 where the men in blue side will be participating.
This decision from the team of Hotstar and Star Sports Network came after they faced a loss of 12.5 million viewers during the TATA IPL 2023 season.
That happened because the JioCinema gave the live streaming services for free on their mobile app.
To compete with Jio, Hotstar has also decided to not charge anything from the viewers during the upcoming two events of the one-day international format.
