Disney+ and the Disney Plus Hotstar are the same services, with different contents served in different regions. Disney+ was the streaming service available in the US and on the other side, and Hotstar was the streaming service that started and became available in India.
Later as a part of the expansion, Hotstar started the US streaming service, which was available under Hotstar US service. However, a few years back, Disney Plus and Hotstar combined in India and rebranded, and Disney+ Hotstar and Hotstar in US were discontinued.
Hotstar USA No Longer Available
The problem caused is that once the Disney Plus service started in India and was rebranded Hotstar as Disney Plus Hotstar, the Hotstar USA service was discontinued because, in the US, Disney is already serviced under the name Disney Plus.
Since the Hotstar in USA is unavailable, many find it problematic as they miss several regional contents available only on Hotstar.
