Jio and Disney+ Hotstar are reportedly teaming up to offer free IPL 2020 live streaming for select prepaid plan users and select Jio Fiber broadband plan users in India. The telecom operator is expected to offer free streaming to Rs. 401 and Rs. 2,599 prepaid plan subscribers. Both these plans already offer Disney+ Hotstar subscription but details regarding access to IPL 2020 live streaming were not certain till now. Jio Fiber subscribers on plans priced at Rs. 849 and above are reported to receive the same benefit as well, given that these plans already offer complimentary Disney+ Hotstar VIP annual subscription.
According to a report by 91Mobiles, citing sources, Jio will offer IPL 2020 live streaming benefits on two select prepaid plans and Jio Fiber plans priced at Rs. 849 and above. The two plans are priced at Rs. 401 and Rs. 2,599, and these packs offer combination of benefits, including talk time and data. This will now include free access to IPL 2020 live streaming as well. The report says that for Jio users not subscribed to Disney+ Hotstar or not having free access, the IPL 2020 streaming will be limited to just 5 minutes.
The Jio deal seems especially important as Disney+ Hotstar seems to be planning to restrict IPL 2020 streaming to Premium tiers subscribers this year, as per an online report. So despite being subscribers to just Disney+ Hotstar VIP plan, the Jio users with Rs. 401 and Rs. 2,599 plan will get to see IPL 2020 live. Same is the case with Jio Fiber users. When asked about IPL 2020 availability on Disney+ Hotstar VIP plan, the streaming service said it had nothing to share at the moment.
Also, there is no word on whether the users of Jio data add-on packs that also come with Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription will get to see IPL 2020 as well………Read More>>
