Disney+ Hotstar is in the process of making user registration mandatory. Currently, the streamer is offering the option to skip login for 20 times for the unregistered users. Having user data will allow the streamer to personalize content and ad targeting for the users.
The streamer also has introduced picture-in-picture mode on the website recently. The feature which was available on android on iOS apps earlier was discontinued to bash bugs as per the support team. PIP mode popping up on the website is an indicator the feature is coming sooner rather than later.
Earlier this month, Disney+ Hotstar has suspended its services on smart television and connected TV apps for the non-subscribers. TV devices will need to either have a VIP or Premium subscription to enjoy Disney+ Hotstar content.
