The Indian telecom giant Reliance Jio recently teased its partnership with Disney+Hotstar VIP on its official site. Jio has previously partnered with Hotstar premium to give their users a complimentary benefit. The poster does not reveal much information about the partnership and we don’t know yet if it will be bundled with some specific recharge plans or it will be for all the Jio users.
The reason for this Partnership is because the main rival of Jio in Telecom, Airtel did the same. Airtel announced that the Rs. 401 recharge plan which comes bundled with one-year Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription, that usually costs around Rs. 399 and a 3GB data per day benefit for 28 days.
Disney+ Hotstar VIP offers telecast of numerous TV shows much before the actual show premieres on TV. It also brings access to Disney+ shows, movies, kids’ content, exclusive Hotstar content and live sports events like cricket, football and Formula 1. Soon enough, this app will have premieres of many of the upcoming Bollywood movies.
The company is yet to reveal the actual offer and when it will go live. Jio recently announced many new plans for people who consume high amounts of data like the 2399rs plan which offered 2GB data daily for 365 days. The total data offered is 730 GB. As of now, the teaser banner released by Jio only shows “Coming Soon” and we do not know the exact date when this plan goes live.
The teaser banner was first spotted by the telecom blog OnlyTech. Speculated pricing of this plan will be highly competitive with what Airtel has to offer i.e. Rs. 401. Its worth to remember that this is not the first time Jio is offering such services. Back in 2016, Jio provided a free subscription of Hotstar VIP for all its users.
