Indians react to How I Met Your Father not available on Hotstar India but Disney Plus explains why

HIMYM fans are going through a roller coaster of emotions after How I Met Your Father starring Hilary Duff debuted on Hulu on Wednesday. Fans in the US can stream the series on Hulu and although the show was expected to land on Hotstar India on the same release date, the mouse house’s OTT has once again disappointed its Indian subscriber base.

The first two episodes of the sequel to How I Met Your Mother is already available to stream across all regions. But fans in India have been raising queries with Hotstar over the unavailability of HIMYF. In fact, Twitter has been flooded with fans’ pleas asking when the series will release.

UPDATE: How I Met Your Father is now available on Disney Plus Hotstar

The good news is Disney Plus has responded but the bad news, with a vague reply from the support team. “Hi! The show How I Met Your Father is not available yet due to some unforeseen technical issues. Our team is working hard to make it available soon. We regret the inconvenience caused,” read one tweet from Disney+HS Help to a query from a fan. The same response has been provided to every Disney Plus India subscriber on social media. Readers can check out some tweets below.

Unfortunately, it remains to be seen when Hotstar would include the new series in its catalog. Earlier, MCU Indian fans were also disappointed when Eternals was released in the standard format rather than IMAX Enhanced. Added, Subscribers in regions such as the US, Canada, UK etc can stream over 22 Marvel films in 1.9:1.

Earlier last year in December, K-drama fans were also campaigning for Snowdrop’s release on Disney Plus Hotstar. Though it’s yet to arrive, the OTT did assure a later release date.

Note, a report from Whats On Disney Plus states How I Met Your Father would stream on March 9, Wednesday in regions such as Canada, Australia, UK & more. However, it also says 19th as the official release date for India.

How I Met Your Father also stars Christopher Lowell, Francia Raisa, Suraj Sharma, Tom Ainsley, Tien Tran. Recurring stars for the show are Daniel Augustin, Kim Cattrall, Ashley Reyes and Josh Peck. The series is a 20th Television production, a division of Walt Disney Television.
