Disney+, with its original catalog, has arrived in India weeks ahead of its scheduled launch date. Disney revamped its video streaming service Hotstar in India early Wednesday and populated Disney+ titles on the platform.

The service is currently available at no additional charge to existing Hotstar subscribers, though the premium tier carries a new sticker price of Rs 3,588 ($48) for a year.

The “Disney+ Hotstar” currently offers more than a dozen original titles from Disney, including “Diary of a Future President,” “Disney Family Sundays,”
“Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings,” “Encore,” “High School Musical,” “The Mandalorian,” and “The World According to Jeff Goldblum.”

Some users have pointed out that the in-app player is not able to stream some titles seamlessly. And that the titles are available in full-HD (1080P), instead of their native 4K resolution. Hotstar in India has yet to add support for 4K.

The early rollout of Disney+Hotstar comes at a rough time for Disney and Hotstar that have received criticism for censoring John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight” show.
