New Delhi (Sputnik): Better late than never: the Walt Disney Company is gearing up to bring its content streaming services to India-the country with the world’s largest number of nostalgic millennials and new-age kids.

Joining the trend of online content streaming to cater to new-age kids, Disney’s much-anticipated video streaming service, “Disney+” is soon coming to India via domestic content platform Hotstar.

Launched in 2015 and with 300 million monthly active users, Hotstar is a subsidiary of Star India, which itself is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company.

US-based content majors like Netflix and Amazon are thriving in India, as the country moves briskly towards becoming the world's second-largest market after China for over-the-top (OTT) content.

By 2023, India's online video market will have more than 500 million online video subscribers, research reports suggest.

“Disney+”, content from Walt Disney Studios, Twentieth Century Fox, Marvel Studios, Pixar, Lucasfilm, and National Geographic will be available 'on-the-go' for Indian binge-watchers.

Hotstar confirmed the news that it will soon be streaming “Disney+” services on its platform in India.

​Netizens have already taken to social networking platforms to share their excitement about “Disney+” coming to India.

​Disney launched its content streaming platform on 12 November in the US while revealing its plans for rolling out “Disney+” in most of the major global markets by 2021.
