You might have noticed recently that after upgrading your Hotstar app that you are required to enter a code to watch content. As Disney has now become a visible element of the brand with the launch of Disney+ in India, they have also made some changes, mostly improvements, to the security of the site, especially in regards to region blocking. But this site is about Unlocking World TV, so lets get to it
Here is how to Bypass Hotstar Phone (OTP) Verification and pay for your new Disney Hotstar account without using an Indian bank card.
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.
- YOU DO NOT NEED AN INDIAN PHONE NUMBER 🙂
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!
Step 4 – Go to Hotstar.com
Note here that we are NOT going to the /activate URL. The verification, for Hotstar’s part is probably to try and avoid account sharing.
Once you go to Hotstar.com, sign in. But you have to do a series of steps for this as there are two ‘paths’ to login. We need the “unhappy path”.. which looks like this
Step 5 – the unhappy path
Click Premium – DO NOT CLICK LOGIN
click on a premium movie or show, signified by the green and white crown icon
The next step requires you to click on the “already a member – sign in”
Next you need to Login.
This step is critical. you MUST be logged into Hotstar BEFORE you click on the activate link. And in order to log in you need to, bizarrely, not use the regular log in link as shown in the first image.
Below you can see no number is completed. Just click “Have an email or facebook account”
Enter your password and /or email address and then click done.
Next we need to go to the activate link at Hotstar.com/activate
As you are already signed in. You will no longer be needed to put a mobile number in. Instead, your device will be cleared and you will see your user name, and a big green tick (slightly out of shot sorry) .
You will now be able to access your stream on your streaming device and you should see the video you original chose start to play.
Step 6 – Crack a Beer Open
Thats right, because you just Bypassed Hotstar Phone Verification without even using phone
