However, according to our friends at Amanz, there won’t be any support for Disney+ Hotstar Malaysia on gaming consoles like Sony’s PS4 and PS5, Microsoft’s Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S, and the Nintendo Switch, as well as on Smart TVs. At least, these platforms won’t be supported at launch, but there’s no telling when or even if support will ever arrive in the future post-launch.
