Amazon Prime Video India vs Netflix vs Hotstar

However, when it comes to Amazon Prime, it members is not required to pay any extra charges for the Prime Video service. A member can watch the contents on three devices simultaneously. Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, and Hotstar all are available on Android and iOS apps, on the web browsers

Regional Content

Netflix’s catalog is heavily loaded with English language content; you can find Hindi movies as well but the regional language content is quite limited and not well categorized.

Hotstar covers English, Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Malayalam, Marathi, Telugu, Gujarati, Kannada languages contents. Hotstar is one of the best for regional content categorisation.

In Netflix there is no option is available to change the streaming quality as the resolution of streaming depends upon the plan you have taken.  Whereas, the playback screen on Hotstar offers settings and display resizing options. However, in Amazon Prime Video, it has an interesting feature as IMDB integration into the app, which provides you a lot of knowledge about characters in a movie or TCV Show in real time as the video is playing.
