  • You can livestream IPL 2020 on these apps if you don’t have Disney Plus Hotstar subscription

The 13th season of Indian Premier League (IPL) has begun. If you’re wondering how you can watch IPL 2020 online without Disney Plus Hotstar subscription, we’re here to answer just that. The IPL 2020, as you may know, is being played in UAE in isolation – meaning there will be no spectators or fans on the stands. IPL can only be watched live through Star Sports network or its online streaming service Disney Plus Hotstar. The latter holds the exclusive digital rights of IPL 2020, but it comes with a paywall that restricts the content to only paying subscribers in India. However, there is a workaround to watch IPL 2020 online free if you don’t have a Disney Plus Hotstar subscription yet. Here’s how you can live-stream IPL matches without a Hotstar subscription.

Disney Plus Hotstar is the sole streaming platform for IPL 2020 matches. However, access is limited to only paid subscribers. You need to have either Disney Plus Hotstar VIP or Disney Plus Hotstar Premium subscription to live stream the matches. For anyone not subscribed to Disney Plus Hotstar, the online IPL 2020 live streaming will be limited to just 5 minutes.
