India's Flipkart eyes stake in Star's Hotstar

Walmart Inc’s Flipkart unit is in talks to buy a stake in Star India’s video streaming service Hotstar, the Mint daily reported on Monday, stepping up the e-commerce firm’s battle with Amazon.com Inc by expanding into video content.

Flipkart eyes stake in Star's Hotstar


The reported talks with Hotstar come at a time when there is high demand in the country for video streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, which offer original content shows like “Sacred Games” and “Breathe”.

Hotstar, owned by Twenty-First Century Fox’s Star India unit, launched in India in 2015 - about a year ahead of streaming giant Netflix and nearly two years ahead of Amazon Prime Video debut in the country - remains well ahead of both in terms of its popularity with domestic users.

Hotstar has been offering premium content like HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and live-streaming of popular Indian Premier League cricket for an annual subscription of 999 rupees ($13.90).

Hotstar has denied any such talks with Flipkart, but said was open to partnerships that can help grow the Internet ecosystem in India and beyond, the paper reported.

Flipkart and Hotstar were not immediately available for comment.

Flipkart has already tied up with Hotstar to launch a video advertisement platform in July. Hotstar is also one of the Internet partners for Flipkart Plus, its customer loyalty program competing with Amazon Prime.

Walmart acquired about 77 percent of Flipkart for nearly $16 billion in what was the U.S. retail giant’s largest-ever deal and a move to take on arch rival Amazon in a key growth market.

Flipkart, along with its fashion units Myntra and Jabong, is slightly ahead of Amazon in India’s online retail, according to Forrester estimates.
