How to watch IPL 2020: RR vs CSK live stream on your smartphone or tablet
Star India is the official broadcaster of IPL 2020. They also have the digital rights for the live streaming of the games. To see the games on your smartphone or tablet, all you have to do is download them Disney + hot star App on your device. In contrast to previous years, you cannot watch the games for free on the platform with a delay of 5 minutes and you have to subscribe to the service. Fortunately, it doesn’t cost a bomb.
You have two plan options there – Disney + Hotstar Premium or Disney + Hotstar VIP. The good news is that you don’t have to subscribe to the more expensive premium plan if all you’re into is sports. The Premium tier has a monthly plan of Rs 299, but mind you, the tournament lasts almost two months and it will cost you Rs 598 if you take this route. So it would be wiser to go for the VIP plan instead, which costs only Rs 399 for the whole year. In addition to cricket, you also get access to other sports, local language films, TV series, etc.
Once you’ve installed the app, just launch it before game time and you’re good to go. The Disney + Hotstar app also supports casting if you have a Chromecast connected to your TV. That brings us to our next option.
How to Watch IPL 2020: RR vs CSK Live Stream on Android TV or Chromecast
If you don’t have a DTH connection but have an Android TV or Google Chromecast, you can still watch the game live on your big screen. All you have to do is launch the Disney + Hotstar app on your smartphone or tablet, select the live match stream, then tap the casting icon at the top, select your Chromecast or Android TV and watch it transfer. Just make sure your phone / tablet and Chromecast / TV are on the same Wi-Fi network.
If you have an Android TV or an Android-based TV (AOSP), you can install the Hotstar app directly on the TV and access the match stream from there. Either way, you can have your phone free for other things.
How to Watch IPL 2020: RR vs CSK Live Stream on Non-Android Smart TV
If you have Samsung or LG Smart TVs running Tizen and WebOS, respectively, don’t worry! You have the Disney + Hotstar app for these platforms too. Reinstall the app on the TV and select the live match stream.
If your Smart TV has a Linux-based operating system, as is the case with Philips Smart TVs (Saphi OS) or some older models from Panasonic, Vu or LG, the Hotstar app is not available for these platforms. So what you can do is mirror your phone / tablet screen to the TV using Miracast which is supported by most smart TVs. Find the screen mirroring option on the TV and your phone / tablet and sync the two. The instructions and nomenclature can vary slightly from device to device, but nothing you can’t figure out for yourself with a little help from Google.
The catch here is that if you want an uninterrupted broadcast of the game, you cannot use your phone for any other purpose. Alternatively, you can launch the internet browser on the television (if you have one) and go to Hotstar.com, log into your account and start watching. However, this may not work on all TVs. A much better alternative for a far better overall experience is to invest in a video streamer.
How to Watch IPL 2020: RR vs CSK Live Stream on Amazon Fire TV Stick or Android Streamers
So if you’re stuck with a TV that doesn’t have one Disney + hot star App, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to opt for an Amazon Fire TV Stick or one of the Android streamers like Mi TV Stick or Mi Box 4K. You can simply download the app on these devices, log into your account and watch the games live. And that investment wouldn’t be limited to just watching IPL 2020. Not only do these streaming devices support most of the popular OTT platforms, but they also offer a far better user interface and viewing experience when consuming content.
How to Watch IPL 2020: RR vs CSK Live Stream on Laptop / PC
If you get stuck on your PC or laptop, just visit Hotstar.com, log into your account, and enjoy the game. I am assuming that you are good at multitasking. If you don’t want to invest in a video streamer, you can connect your laptop to the TV with an HDMI cable to enjoy the game on a big screen. Extend your desktop and let the match play on your TV while you continue working on the laptop screen
