Star Sports, along with 100 other channels getting shut down by the end of this year by Disney

Walt Disney CEO, Bob Chapek declared that Disney will be shutting down 100 cable channels this year and will be shifting the focus to Disney+ as this platform is getting a good amount of traffic and better quality of content in recent times and have attracted the new youth towards his content.

Disney had already closed 30 channels last year and now they will be closing 100 by the end of this year. They will be migrating the content towards Disney+ so that people can still enjoy their favourite shows on a single platform. In India, the market scenario is different from other places and they have put up a good amount of entertainment and sports in Hotstar that a large number of people in India enjoy on their mobile phones, laptops, tablets and television sets at a very reasonable price.

Earlier this month, Disney also announced that they have crossed the 103 million mark in paid subscribers that will be growing at a very fast rate in the coming years due to digitalization of everything, easy to obtain and affordable data plans have made it easier to browse the content that is available for consumption.
