Download Videos From HotStar On Android

Lets face it that we love watching our favorite TV shows or last night’s game on the go. There are various services that allow the streaming of these shows and games on both mobile phones and PCs. Netflix is one of the most commonly known names when it comes to watching TV shows online. In India, HotStar is the main platform that people use to watch cricket on mobile along with many TV shows and Indian television serials. HotStar was launched by Star India in 2015, as a service to watch Cricket but ever since then, the platform has been extended to more than just cricket. The only problem that people face is that they are unable to download the videos on the application which causes problems when they wish to save videos to watch later without access to data.

HotStar has become India’s leading streaming service on Android for TV shows, movies, and cricket in many different Indian languages. Premium subscribers enjoy further benefits of having new movies to watch other than the normal old movies that are available to all. HotStar has made watching TV shows and movies easy but the only slight glitch is that you need a working internet connection to reap all the benefits of the application. Sometimes, people find themselves in a fix where they do not have access to fast internet and then they wish that they had downloaded the videos at a time when they had fast internet. Here are a few ways that you can download said videos on to your device, android and PC:

Android: Downloading Videos From HotStar on Android

1. Using the HotStar App Itself

This is the most legal and recommended way to download movies and TV shows from HotStar. The latest version of the application will allow anyone to download certain videos. The steps are as follows:

a. Download the latest version of HotStar.

b. Search for the video that you wish to download.

c. Check if the download option is available below the video player.

e. If the download option is not available, try some other methods that will be mentioned ahead.

2. Using third-party apps that allow you to download videos from various websites

There are many third-party applications on the Android platform that allow a person to download videos from various websites like YouTube, HotStar, etc. Some of these applications are TubeMate and SnapTube. The main difference between downloading using these applications and HotStar is that the videos downloaded in HotStar are available to be played later on in the HotStar app itself only, while the videos downloaded from the third-party apps can be played and shared just like a normal video file on the mobile. These would not be available in the Play Store but can be downloaded from their websites by searching through Google and downloading their .apk files. The steps in these would remain essentially the same.
