It can be seen that the yellow and black logo of Hotstar has been replaced by a white and blue one. The logo of both Hotstar VIP and Hotstar Premium have been changed as the star and the crown icon were removed and there were only letter ‘V’ and ‘P’ to signify the two categories. The new branding was launched on Android early this week before the rollout on iOS a few days later.
