Hotstar is one of the best apps for watching the English Premier League and Game of Thrones in India.

One of the most affordable paid content streaming apps in India at the moment, the Amazon Prime Video app is offering year long premium subscription at just Rs. 500 (although a pricing update is due in December this year). Apart from getting to see some of your favourite American TV shows, you also get a ton of Indian TV and movie content. Amazon is also developing some exclusive TV programmes for India.

The best part about the Prime Video subscription is that you get the Amazon Prime membership with it as well.


A popular but somewhat costly service, Netflix is as good as it gets if you want to enjoy high-quality TV shows and movies from around the globe. Netflix is constantly expanding its Indian films and TV library and is also planning some originals series’s for Indian audience. The basic subscription of Netflix is Rs. 500 for a single user.
In case of Netflix subscriptions, it is better to opt for the costliest monthly plan, which comes at Rs. 800 and lets you watch (up to 4k quality) content on 4 screens. You can pool with interested friends for the subscription and thus have access to Netflix by spending as much as you do on a Hotstar subscription.


One of the largest content streaming apps which offers content from over 200 Indian TV channels, YuppTV also has a popular following in India.
