The online streaming video service HOOQ has terminated its partnership with Disney+ Hotstar. This termination has led to the removal of DC and Warner Bros content from Disney+ Hotstar streaming service. HOOQ was a joint venture among Singapore telecom group Singtel (majority owner), Sony Pictures, and Warner Bros Entertainment.
In India, HOOQ content was also available on Airtel Xstream and HOOQ’s independent app but now the HOOQ content will not be available in India in any of these platforms. The reason is that the company has shut down and Singtel has filed for service’s liquidation.
What does this mean for viewers in India?
Bad news for DC fans is that Arrowverse is partially gone. The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow are not available on any streaming service in India anymore. However Arrow, Black Lightning, Gotham and DC Titans are available on Netflix. DC’s new Batwomen show is not launched on any OTT in India yet.
New episodes of HOOQ DC TV shows stopped appearing on the streaming service in mid-march and HOOQ claimed the reason to be technical issues. The picture got cleared in May when HOOQ officially announced its shut down.
You can still watch these shows on TV. The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman and Black Lightning air on Colors Infinity and Supergirl on Zee Café.
