Bro, I also had same problem, I was missing hotstar in my big 50" screen, but I got a solution, GOOGLE CHORMECAST, chromecast did it job wonderfully, it works in my non smart tv too, check full details on hotstar app site at hotstar for smart tv guide

It had cost me around 3k inr, it is worth of each penny.  check its features and stop waiting for smart tv version.

Regards,

Nash

had written to hotstar team for this and got below reply

 

Currently, our Hotstar App is not compatible with Smart/Android TV. However, it is in the Development phase and will be made available soon. Once we upgrade our platform to HTML 5 it should be compatible with WebOS as well. As this may take a while, your patience is appreciated. 

In the meanwhile, you can watch videos on your Smart TV using a Chromecast, Apple TV and Amazon Fire Stick Device.

Nice discussion

I want to share my experience with hotstar I am from the USA, and I had face a lot of issue in accessing Hotstar in the USA, but finally, VPN sorts out my problem now I am watching the hot star in the USA without any hurdle.
