We are living in the Golden era of Television. Your favorite movies and shows are just a button click away.
Gone are the days when you had to wait for a movie to premiere on television. You couldn’t even pause it to go for a bathroom break!. Thankfully our lives are much more comfortable now with media service providers like Hotstar, Netflix, which contain a wide variety of content.
Although these services come with a bouquet of benefits, there are many downfalls to it as well. There is also a question going around “How to Delete Hotstar Account?”.
Deleting an account is not that easy of a process. I have the perfect guide for you, which will help you delete your account smoothly in a matter of five minutes.
Before we get into the “How to delete Hotstar account”. If your reasons for deleting the account are similar to the ones that I have mentioned below, you may have other options rather than deleting your account.
- You are getting a lot of spam mails from Hotstar, these mails are bothering you, and you are missing out on relevant emails due to this. To avoid this you can unsubscribe from emails or can move all Hotstar emails to the spam folder.
- You want to cancel your subscription as you don’t want to pay any more, but you don’t exactly know how to do that. There is a way to cancel the Hotstar subscription without deleting your account.
If your reason is something other than the above two, maybe you feel that the content Hotstar provides is not suitable for you or your family, or you have kids at home who don’t do their homework and keep streaming day in and out. Whatever your reason may be, below is a guide to help you delete your Hotstar account.
How to Delete Hotstar Account?
First, before deleting your account, you need to make sure that you are not a premium member of the Hotstar Application.
In case you are a premium member, then you will first have to unsubscribe from Hotstar Premium, after which you can delete the account. Follow the guide on How to cancel Hotstar Subscription.
Deleting your account is not a straightforward process; there is no direct way provided by Hotstar on their website or App for account deletion. Your only option here is to drop an e-mail to the Hotstar support team.
How to delete Hotstar account via Email
- Log in to the email account that you have registered with Hotstar. You don’t need to send the email with the registered account. You can send it from any email account that you own, but you must be extra careful to mention details of the Hotstar registered account (could be an email or a mobile number) in the email that you send. On the contrary, if you decide to send the email with the registered account rather than a random email id, then the entire process will go on smoothly.
- You will need to compose an email and make it out to [email protected].
- You can keep the Subject as “REQUEST FOR ACCOUNT DELETION” or “HOTSTAR ACCOUNT DELETION.”
- In the body section of the email, write about why you want to delete your account and request for deletion. I have given a sample template below.
