But like every other major streaming service platform, Hotstar is also geographically restricted to certain countries of the world. Currently, it is accessible by viewers located in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Canada, Singapore, and the United Kingdom.

But don’t worry. There’s an easy solution to this problem. By using a virtual private network, viewers that aren’t located in any of those countries can also get an opportunity to stream Hotstar.

For example, people in Australia can connect to the Indian VPN server, change their actual IP address and location, and comfortably stream Hotstar in Australia.

But with so many award-winning TV shows, movies, documentaries, and other available content, viewers can easily get confused when deciding what to watch.
