Disney Mulls Selling Indian TV & Streaming Business

Disney is reportedly exploring strategic options for its Indian business, including the possibility of selling or forming a joint venture.

The Indian business includes the Star TV channels and the Disney+ Hotstar streaming service.

While discussions are in the early stages, no companies have been approached yet.

Disney+ Hotstar is currently India’s most subscribed streaming service but faces increasing competition, particularly from JioCinema, which recently secured streaming rights for the Indian Premier League cricket.

Disney CEO Bob Iger has indicated that the linear TV business “may not be core” to the company’s future strategy.
