  1. Helo Sagar,
    Good Day. I couldn’t able to install hotstar app in my computer. kindly tell me how to install hotstar app in computer.

    • You see i have shown you how to install hotstar on PC using bluestacks , if you are unable to install it using bluestacks then try using other android emulators like any or youwave. see if that works for you or not.

      • also there is no need to install any android emulator if we are having windows 10. Because there is an inbuilt store having hot star app only we have to install that.

          • It does download in windows 10 however it does not play as it asks for Adobe flash player. Have installed the same still it does not go beyond the message install adobe flash player

      • the bluestack didn’t work in my windows8.1
        so, i tried “nox player” instead
        but hotstar does open
        but it doesn’t play for long…
        an error occurs everytime “saying hotstar is not responding”
        please solve my problem
        i even tried using “andy ” but same problem occurs with that too….

    • The process is same for every windows device just download any android emulator and use it for running hotstar on windows xp.

  4. Bluestack says to update hostar but then in google play screen the update is saying download pending. Do you know from where to download the latest apk for hotstar.
