The best way to watch the India vs Netherlands T20 World Cup 2022 match is via the Disney+ Hotstar app. Disney+ Hotstar is the official streaming partner for the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 and will offer you an unparalleled experience without any doubt. The app is available on Android and iOS smartphones, Android and iPadOS tablets, and almost all smart TVs.
Star Network has the TV broadcasting rights for all the major ICC tournaments in Asian countries like India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, and the Maldives, so in order for you to be able to watch India’s upcoming match, you will need to have a Disney+ Hotstar subscription handy.
If you are an existing Disney+ Hotstar subscriber, you probably don’t need to do anything but invite your friends over for the match, prepare some food, grab some popcorn, and enjoy the match. However, if you don’t have the subscription, you will need to opt for either of the three subscription plans the platform has in store for you:
Disney+ Hotstar Subscription Plans
|Plan Name||Plan Cost||Number Of Devices||Streaming Quality|
|Disney+ Hotstar Mobile Plan||₹499||Single Device||1080p|
|Disney+ Hotstar Super Plan||₹899||Two Devices||1080p|
|Disney+ Hotstar Premium Plan||₹1,499||Four Devices||4K|
Though this table will help you decide as to which plan to go for, we recommend opting for the Premium Plan if you have a 4K TV, as it offers 4K quality. It will enhance your overall viewing experience. Plus, since the plan allows for simultaneous streaming on up to four devices, you can always split the overall cost between four individuals and enjoy the match at the same time. This will essentially make the overall per-person cost less than ₹400, which is even lesser than the Mobile Plan. Sounds good, right?
With this being established, if you still don’t want to spend this much on the Disney+ Hotstar subscription, what about getting it for free? Too good to be true? Well, there are chances that you already have an unused Disney+ Hotstar membership in your pocket, and you aren’t even aware of that. Read further to know more.

India vs Netherlands T20 World Cup 2022 Match: Tips For Watching Without Buffering Issues
Now that you know the potential costs involved in watching the match, let us also address one very important factor: watching the match without interruptions. By interruptions, we don’t mean someone knocks on your door while the match is at its peak. We certainly cannot avoid such distractions. But we can certainly avoid the much-dreaded buffering while streaming the match.
To ensure a buffer-free streaming experience, here are some steps that you can take:
- Close all other applications and programs that are not needed at the moment on your device, as they might be consuming crucial system resources and internet data.
- Remove other devices that are connected to the same network and provide maximum juice to the device you are watching the game on.
- Clean up your browser’s or app’s temporary files and cached data, which slow things down.
- Reset your Wi-Fi router.
- Check your VPN connection. Sometimes, a VPN (Virtual Private Network) adversely affects the internet speed, as every data packet has to be encrypted and then decrypted at a remote server. This potentially causes video buffering problems.
- Pause the stream for a few moments and let the video build up a bigger buffer. This is not the most ideal solution, but this will ensure that you don’t have to get interrupted constantly.
- Reduce the video streaming resolution or quality. This, again, is not the most ideal solution out there, but if your internet speed is not apt, rather than getting stuck with the stream constantly buffering, you might as well watch a reduced-quality stream without any interruptions.
