India-Pakistan Cricket Match Helps Disney's Hotstar Set Global Streaming Record The high-stakes India-Pakistan cricket match set a new global record for on-demand video streaming, with Disney's Hotstar attracting 35 million concurrent viewers. This achievement comes as a significant boost for Hotstar, which had been experiencing a subscriber decline. The event surpassed the previous record held by Viacom18’s JioCinema. Disney's strategy of streaming the ICC World Cup cricket matches for free in India is a countermeasure against competitors like Viacom18, which has gained substantial popularity and even outbid Disney for the IPL streaming rights. The success of the cricket match streaming is a beacon of hope for Disney, as the company is exploring options to sell its India operations, including Hotstar.
