Hotstar Premium Won’t Work with JIO Sim

Recently if you’re using Jio sim then you will be facing a simple problem that is you won’t be able to use hotstar premium with Jio sim. Yes the Jio net is not working with Hotstar premium.

The problem that’s arising for everyone is that once you tried to login in with your account details then it will redirect to your login page of Jio Sim. Also there is a login error when you try to skip it. So on complaining to hotstar this is what I got….

Hi Dipraj

Your existing premium membership will not work on Jio Network. We have integrated Jio Tv and Jio has not launched the premium service till now, your existing subscription will not work on a device that has a jio sim. You can continue to use this on other devices with non jio sim.


So basically if you’re using a jio sim then you need to wait till Jio network finally allows premium subscription features or else it’s a waste of your membership plan 🙁

I hope this helps, if you’ve any confusions then you can pitch that below.

  • Thank you so much! I was wondering why my hotstar stopped working suddenly.. Glad I searched and glad you had blogged about it!

  • There is a work around, if you already have a pre existing hotstar account. Just go to sim card manager (android) and switch off the Jio Sim. Close hotstar app and delete all cache data. Also switch on wifi. Restart your phone. Now open the hotstar app and the normal sign in page will appear instead of the jio page. Enter your credentials and sign in. Once you have successfully signed in you may switch on the Jio sim. It will work like a charm. However you will need to remain on wifi.

    • Thanks for the info. I didn’t have to do all that. Basically you can put the phone on airplane mode, clear app cache and the app will ask you a normal sign in page. Then on switch off the airplane mode.
