The second phase (UAE Leg) of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) is scheduled to begin on September 19 in the UAE. In total, 27 league matches will be played before the top four teams qualify for the playoffs.

The second leg of IPL 2021 will also stream online on Disney+Hotstar live. That said, the Disney+Hotstar plans are set to undergo some major changes following September 1.

The Rs 399 VIP and Rs 299 Premium plans will be discontinued and replaced by Rs 499 Mobile and Rs 899 Super plans. This is likely to affect Airtel, Vi and Jio, Disney+Hotstar VIP plans as well.

Disney+ Hotstar new plans to watch IPL 2021 Live

The details of Disney+Hotstar new plans are as follows:

  • Disney Plus Hotstar Mobile: As the name would suggest, it’s a mobile-only plan. It will offer content to smartphone users in HD quality. The plan is priced at Rs 499 a year and supports one screen at a time.
  • Disney Plus Hotstar Super: The new Super plan from the streaming platform offers HD content and supports two screens simultaneously. The plan is compatible with all devices out there, including mobile phones, laptops, and smart TV. It’s priced at Rs 899 for a year.
  • Disney Plus Hotstar premium: The premium plan costs Rs 1,499 and offers 4K content. You can also stream the content on as many as four screens at a time.

Unlike the existing VIP and Premium, the Hotstar Mobile, Super, and Premium plans offer the same catalogue of content. Subscribers of even the most basic Disney Plus Hotstar plan will be able to enjoy the same web series, TV shows and movies in the original language as the priciest plan.

Now, you must be wondering how to watch IPL 2021 for free. The answer to that is there are no legitimate ways to do that. However, a great workaround is to go for certain Vi, Airtel and Jio recharge plans. These plans offer data and voice call benefits alongside subscriptions to Disney+Hotstar. Now, the subscription will allow you to watch IPL 2021 free without subscription at no extra cost. It is all included in your chosen prepaid recharge plan.

VIP users will most likely be able to upgrade to the new Disney+Hotstar Mobile, Super, and Premium plans after they come into force. In case, your Hotstar VIP plan is expiring or has expired, recharge your mobile number with select Airtel, Vi, and Jio recharge packs now to get the subscription for free and watch IPL 2021 online in India.
