IPL 2020 begins from today but this season is like gonna be like no season ever before. Owing to the Coronavirus outbreak in India, the tournament has been shifted to UAE with no fans allowed in the stadiums. But there are various steps being taken to make the experience from the homes of viewers more interesting.
How And Where To Watch IPL 2020?
IPL 2020 will be exclusively streamed in India over the Start Sports network and on online platforms through Disney+ Hotstar. The IPL telecast will be exclusively available for Disney+ Hotstar Vip and Disney+ Hotstar Premium members only. Using any of these, users can view the complete IPL season on their phone, tablet, laptop, or even Smart TV.
The Disney+ Hotstar Vip costs Rs. 399 annually and includes all sports along with Indian content. While the premium package is for Rs. 1,499 and allows the users to watch Sports, Indian, and also International content.
Innovative Features In Disney+ Hotstar
Disney+ Hotstar has come up with some interesting innovative features to enhance the experience of watching the IPL 2020 season over the App. Sitting at home watching the matches without any crowd noises certainly reduces the passion of the games. But earlier today Disney+ Hotstar released a press note announcing these changes.
Already, the app had interactive special emojis to show their support and emotions. Users can also chat with their friends and other viewers across the country. Watch ‘N’ Play is another interesting feature introduced by the app couple of seasons back to make the users earn coupons while watching the match by answering few simple questions.
But this time around, users will also be able to add ‘Hotshots’ and ‘Duets’ to make the experience even more interesting. Using ‘Hotshots’ users can add selfies showing their reactions and emotions of what’s happening in the game and interact with others. While ‘Duets’ is an opportunity for the fans to recreate certain shots, celebrations, and reactions of players or other templates available on the app. So now users can get ready by practicing some iconic celebrations like Gayle’s Hulk celebration, or David Warner’s jumping air punch.
Over the past few years, IPL has become the most loved sporting tournament in the country. After several months of the lockdown, we believe that this tournament can be a catalyst in ushering in new optimism and smiles in India, with millions of fans cheering together from all parts of the country. Our use of technology in presenting this immersive experience will not only set a global benchmark but also redefine the way we watch and enjoy sports in the coming years.
