  2. Sir maine hotstar 399 per year ka pack already liya hua to fir se subscribe krne ko kyu bol ra h

    • Please check if your pack has expired.
      With the 399 yearly pack, certain content is not accessible. If you are trying to watch the non-accessible content it may ask you to subscribe.
      If not then it’s better to contact Hotstar support as they shouln’t as you for the subscription again.
