After six years providing a successful on-demand streaming service in India, Disney+Hotstar is finally launching in Thailand at the end of June.
The new-to-Thailand streaming service will allow Thais to watch shows and movies from Disney, PixPrar, Star Wars, Marvel and National Geographic, along with a slew of Asian and Thai entertainment.
Subscription prices for the service will be incredibly cheap, with consumers in Thailand getting an amazing deal for Disney+Hotstar compared to what western customers pay for a similar service.
So how much is Disney+Hotstar in Thailand?
Cheap enough that most Thais should be able to afford it.
How much is Disney+Hotstar in Thailand?
Prices for Disney+Hotstar in Thailand depend on whether you pay each month, or just go with an annual subscription.
Monthly subscription costs are 99 baht per month (approximately $3.20). If you pick up an annual subscription, however, that cost goes down to 799 baht a year ($26.65), or approximately 67 baht ($2.21) per month.
A subscription cost that is very cheap compared to the 240 baht ($7.99) monthly charge in the U.S., or the 2,400 baht ($79.99) per year subscription fee many Americans pay.
Special Disney+Hotstar price through AIS
If you are one of the millions of people in Thailand using AIS for your mobile services, you could also get the streaming service for a much lower rate.
This is due to AIS being an official distributor of Disney+Hotstar in Thailand, and thus offering a special rate of 35 baht (just over $1) a month to their subscribers.
