Avoid Hotstar ads and watch your movies peacefully- 2020

Do you always feel hotstar ads are way too annoying, at least the time when you can’t skip it? Same goes with me… There are many application who’ve a fixed rule, that whenever a user uses his platform he/she must watch a 20 sec ad. Same goes with hotstar app, Whenever you watch a movie, they provide you a ad before the movie starts and ,at your favourite scenes of movie, and if you skip certain part (example from 11.02 – 38.03). Hotstar will provide you a ad. So I’ve found a amazing trick were you can remove or skip hotstar ads.


Before i tell you how to remove hotstar ads: Let’s recall how ads used to appear previously and now

If you were a usual Facebook user before 10-15 years, or I may say a normal web user who used to use social media for playing games, and to talk with other people around the world. The ads were at very low stat as of now. I remember how youtube change the evolution of ads – from no ads- to skip 5 sec ads and now watch 5 sec ads and then skip it. But as of now ads are used everywhere, for marketing, promoting your business, promoting a product and much more. The statistics of ads grown drastically compared to 6-8 years back.

Not only for marketing, The advertisers pay a hell lot of money to show their ad for best keyword(ex: banking related info have a CPC (cost per click) of 50-80$ per click) That means a advertiser is paying 50 dollars to an ad company (google) to show ads on specific keyword.

Also the publishers like a blogger, youtubers earn well due to this ads. So it has some pros and cons too.

I’ll teach you two things, how to remove hotstar ads from as well as from the Official Hotstar app.

Let’s go for the Desktop version first.

This is the most easiest way which will definitely work for desktop users, Things you need to do now:

  • Open Google Chrome browser on your computer, Sign in with your gmail account 
  • On your right side of the chrome you’ll find 3 dots click on it.
  • 4th last Option will be more tools click on it.
  • Now head towards extension 
  • On left panel of extension page you’ll see 3 lines written before extension.
  • Click on it and find Open Chrome web store,
  • This will bring you to Plugin page where you can install any plugins available – for ex Dark mode plugin which will change your whole chrome with a dark theme.

# note: Before installing any extension read it’s terms and conditions carefully, While installing extension, it will tell you that this extension can read all your data. So if you don’t have anything confidential go ahead with extension.

That was all for how to disable ads on

Time for the Second trick Only for mobile as well as TAB users :

One thing is for sure this trick will also do the same work as written above in a safest way also without installing any extensions on your phone.

Without wasting time let’s focus on How to skip or remove hotstar ads from app


So Let’s get started:

Hotstar provides various free types of free content, like shows, movies etc. But the problem is the annoying ads pop up every time when you play a new video or skip to a specific part. Some ads are way too long around 20 sec, Everyone gets bored when the ads pop up. With this trick you cannot remove ads, but with using some speed  I can help you to remove hotstar ads without waiting for 20-30  Seconds.


  • Open your Hotstar app,
  • Play your any favourite movie :
  • I’m playing Arjun Reddy

Let’s learn How the hotstar ads algorithm works here:


  • Here’s one thing, no matter what video or a show you play, Hotstar’s default setting will play a ad of 5 sec that you can’t skip.
  • Concentrate on green line and the white spots.
  • The Green line is used for fast forward or backward the movie and the white spots indicates that once you green line hits the white spots, A ad will appear.
  • Whenever you pass this time duration for example 25.38 have ad spot.
  • So if you pass through it you’ll get an ad for above 20 Second.
  • If you skip from 15.00 to 26.00 then too you’ll get an ad.
  • There are around 6 ads in a film. (All the ads are placed in such way, were users search for that particular scene, In this scene it was were Amit promises he won’t do it again.)


Now How to remove hotstar ads while playing a movie.

  • Whenever you’re at a point where you know a advertisement is going to pop up you need to remember the time duration, and the location of ad (white spot).
  • After knowing this, press back button on your phone and leave the movie.
  • After Pressing back button it will show you a preview for continue playing movie.
  • Click on the movie, as soon as movie starts click on middle of screen instantly and a green line will pop up with no ads.
  • Directly jump to your time duration.
  • That’s it, now i know this bit tricky but trust me it works all the time.
  • You’ll get 2 seconds window for performing this trick (else ads will be back again)
  • You just need to be little quick and should know the exact position of green line and the part you want to play.
  • Practice it multiple times and You’ll definitely thank me.
  • This trick works for mobile as well as TABLETS  perfectly.
  • I may call it as a glitch from Hotstar.

Now you may think that going for this trick is too difficult, rather than getting a hotstar ad free apk and surf without ads.

That’s not the scenario, Google pays a lot of money for it’s security, Before few months app install scan feature was enabled for all mobiles who has play store installed.Whenever a user installs an app, It would be scanned and verified by google scan feature. So the user should not face any type of hacking activities.

Installing a modified apk will increase the chances of hacking.  Let me tell you why, When you install a application from other sources, a settings popup which will ask you to allow app from unknown sources. (This means you’re allowing a unknown source to install modified apk.) Although you may have heard a girl was conned for 1 lakh Rupees through a PAYTM KYC Scam by allowing permissions to the app. Modified apk does the same thing, Once application installed it will ask you for all suitable permissions.
