If you are an Hotstar subscriber, it allows paid users to download eligible premium content on their device. The good news, Game of Thrones is available to download on Hotstar. But before you proceed, there are a few things you should be aware of.

Hotstar says that downloaded content expires within 7 days of download and 48 hours since you start watching, which is fairly common among the OTT players and there's a dedicated section within the app to view all the downloaded content. Hotstar lets users download all premium content only once throughout your plan’s validity, which can be problematic at times.

Also, you can’t have more than five videos downloaded at a time for offline viewing.

“Since we are not the content owners, we have to implement the policies that content producers mandate. We suggest that you download limited episodes, finish watching them and then download more,” says Hotstar.
