Disney+ Hotstar down? Account access denied to users

The problem message that users are getting when attempting to log in is also being shared in screenshot form on Twitter by users.

Many users in India can no longer access Disney+ Hotstar. There have been more than 500 reports of the outage on Downdetector.in. The problem message that users are getting when attempting to log in is also being shared in screenshot form on Twitter by users.

In response to the downtime, Disney+ Hotstar stated that the service is experiencing unanticipated technical difficulties across our apps and website. The streaming provider has guaranteed that their staff is working to rectify this as quickly as possible. The cities with the most number of reports are Delhi, Jaipur, Lucknow, Kolkata, Nagpur, Hyderabad, Mumbai, and Chandigarh, according to Downdetector’s outage map.


Users of desktop and Disney+ Hotstar have both voiced similar complaints. The problem has reportedly persisted for around 45 minutes, according to users.

Users of Twitter who attempted to log into their accounts on Hotstar were dissatisfied and started posting videos and images of the error message that appeared on their computer or mobile device screens.

On a lighter side, a few users on the microblogging platform initiated a meme fest. Some others attempted to use Hotstar’s Indian audience’s inability to witness Australia’s batting display as evidence that the website was down. A user aptly captioned this still, referencing the Shah Rukh Khan and Zayed Khan movie Main Hoon Na from 2004: “Hotstar, when Australia is batting well against India. #hotstar #CricketTwitter #INDvsAUS.”

Currently, Team India is leading the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 1-0. After crushing Australia by an innings and 132 runs in the first Test in Nagpur, the Rohit Sharma-led team entered the second game of the four-match series. India’s team made one adjustment. For the second Test match, which is currently being played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, Shreyas Iyer was reinstated to the starting XI. Iyer was chosen rather than Suryakumar Yadav.

On the other hand, Australia changed two positions in their starting lineup. Instead of Matt Renshaw and Scott Boland, Travis Head and Matthew Kuhnemann will play in the second Test match.

In the second Test, Australia’s captain Pat Cummins won the toss and decided to bat first. After removing David Warner in the 16th over, seasoned India bowler Mohammad Shami secured the game’s first wicket. The second person to leave was Marnus Labuschagne for 18. Two balls later, Aswhin removed Steven Smith to give Team India the advantage. After dismissing Travis Head, Shami claimed his second wicket. Peter Handscomb and Usman Khawaja are both in the batter’s circle.
