Ratings and Reviews
Iss phase ko kya naam doon. “PLEASE ADD ENGLISH SUBTITLES ON THIS SHOW”
I was watching this movie Iss pyaar ko kya naam doon in Africa and when I came to the UNited States I tried finding a place where I could watch it took over a year to know about Hotstar. I was so happy that I was finally gonna be able to finish watch it cause am obsessed about that show. If I can tell am their number one fan. But what did I get instead, a big fat disappointment. Am so disappointed with Hotstar right now. I subscribed and everything but when I put on the show to watch it, it was in Hindi and I can’t understand Hindi. But I thought it might have subtitles in English. But there was no option which means no subtitles. Hotstar am really disappointed in you guys. Y’all got ma hopes up that I can finally watch the show. And then y’all disappointed me. Y’all made lose hope. Y’all thought me a lesson anyway, never get your hopes cause you might not be happy about the results.
Very poor customer service
If you ever had problem with the hotstar working, do not expect help from
Customer service. They have hired most unhelpful agents who do not understand how customer service works and means. I lost of password and requested to reset giving them details about my account including purchase history, credit care information, my personal details but they said they can’t help if I cannot retrieve my personal email to which the password was going to. Unfortunately, I used an old email which I don’t use it anymore and don’t remember password, they said they will not provide me the password or reset link despite of all the credible information. It was disappointing. I have $99 subscription with them. Ultimately I was able to retrieve my old email password and access the us hotstar account else I would never be able to use $99 account.
1. Please add vijay live tv in this app for both usa and indian timezone. Vijay live tv has been removed by yupptv and others in usa. Do you have anywhere live tv options?
2.Same $10 for lot of tamil channels in YuppTV. here we watch only vijay for $10. There should be language wise package.
3.Add Date wise programs display options also. For e.g. if I choose 17-oct-17 date i need to see the list of programs telecasted that day. Same for 365 days each year. It’s very hard to find the specific programs which we are watching right now. Lots of old tv shows are appearing first. This will be really easy to watch.
Otherwise what ever we have in this app is perfect and great.
