Hero Indian Super League (ISL) is the top football league from India which includes 10 teams from various locations. The 2018-19 season of ISL had started on September and the finals are scheduled to be on 2019 March. The league has started in 2013 without an official recognition from the Asian Football Confederation and later earned the accreditation. ISL is similar to the premier league and La Liga where the clubs can include players from other countries. The quality is not up to the mark but has been improving every year.
Hotstar is the online partner of Hero ISL 2018-2019 and claimed that millions of people are watching every ISL matches through their service. But due to copyright stands, Hotstar is available only in India and people outside India can’t access this service. There are no other online partners to broadcast this service outside India and it is so hard to watch the matches online outside India.
Today, we are adding some methods to watch 2018 – 2019 ISL from the USA, Canada, Australia, European Countries, GCC countries through your PC and mobile.
Hotstar Premium to Watch 2018 ISL from the USA, Canada, Australia or any location outside India
Star India’s digital video platform Hotstar is the official ISL 2018 online streaming partner. You can watch all the ISL 2018 games through Hotstar using the premium service. But the problem is that Hotstar has the rights to broadcast the live action only in India. If you try to access the service outside India, it will show Hotstar is currently not available in your region warning message. This can be easily done using a VPN software which has its server in India.
Personally, I always recommend using IPVanish for getting Hotstar outside India because, its rich with multiple servers from India. So if there are hundreds of people using the service at the same time, you won’t feel lagging or buffering. There may be other VPN tools too but for getting HD streaming try using IPVanish. Here is the guide to access Hotstar outside India using IPVanish VPN.
Step 1:- Go to IPVanish website and choose a plan. See the below image to get a brief idea about IPVanish plan and pricing.
Step 2:- Connect with an Indian server. You will get the best server if you try Quick connect.
Step 3:- To watch ISL on Hotstar, you should have a Hotstar premium account. It will cost ₹999 per year and will be less than US$ 15. Even though you are outside India, I hope you may have an Indian debit card / Credit card or Paytm to make the payment. You can’t make the payment using other country cards.
Once you have done the payment using any Indian cards or Paytm, you will be able to watch the matches. For 2018 ISL matches, Hotstar supports different commentary language options. You can hear the commentary in English, Hindi, Bangla and Malayalam language. So If you are a serious football fan and wish to spend a little bit amount to watch the stunning ISL matches, go with this option. Otherwise, read the following instructions.
