Reliance Jio has brought new plans to offer its consumers just in time with IPL 2020 just around the corner. Jio in collaboration with Disney+ Hotstar has teamed up to launch the ‘Cricket Dhana Dhan Jio Dhana Dhan’ offer. This offers up to one year’s Disney+ Hotstar VIP membership with a few of its prepaid plans.
The company has introduced two new plans – Rs. 499 and Rs. 777 for the subscribers. These new plans offer Disney+Hotstar VIP subscription priced at Rs.399 for a year alongside data and voice benefits. This is coming in just weeks before the commencement of the IPL 2020.
Though, there is no confirmation whether IPL 2020 live streaming will be offered for Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscribers or not. However, some reports suggest that live streaming will be restricted to Disney+ Hotstar Premium users only. Meanwhile, there have been no confirmations or announcements by the OTT platform yet.
Anyhow, Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription currently allows for the live streaming of sports. If no changes are made, then IPL 2020 live streaming is for free for these Jio subscribers.
Details of the new plans
The new Jio prepaid plan of Rs.499 offers 1.5GB high-speed data daily for 56 days. After that, it gives unlimited data but at a reduced speed of 64Kbps. This is only a data pack, and voice and SMS benefits are not part of this plan.
