In order to Bypass Hotstar Phone (OTP) Verification you will need some items to get going

Here is what you need to get started

  • A device (in this example I will use Apple TV)
  • Access to a web browser
  • A VPN or DNS service (in this example I’ve inadvertantly used a combination of both but either one is fine so don’t let that confuse you.

Once you have all of the above items ready to go lets move on.

Step 1 – Close your apps

Seems obvious, but as the apps are geo restricted its best to close the apps altogether before starting. On iOS this involves double clicking home and swiping up.

Step 2 – Start your VPN or DNS service

Ensure your DNS service is switched on or if you use a VPN ensure it is connected to an Indian server.

Step 3 – Open Hotstar on your streaming device

Navigate to a premium item and click to play. You will then be greeted with a screen like this. This is where most people get stuck. But today we will learn how to Bypass Hotstar Phone (OTP) Verification without even using phone!

  1. Thanks for your work.
    Is the sms verification mandatory now for every time I want to watch sth on the laptop?
