After testing the same on the MyJio app and social media, Jio has released its Disney+Hotstar offer. A 1-year subscription of Disney+Hotstar VIP is given to all the prepaid users who recharge with plans of Rs. 401, Rs. 2599 or the 4G data vouchers. You need to note that the Disney+Hotstar VIP subscription costs Rs. 399 at present. You are essentially getting the subscription for free. This is because the subscription is being offered on top of the usual benefits that you get with a Jio recharge.
Before launch, Jio put out its offers on social media. The operator has been showing teasers of the launch for quite some time. This has generated some interest among customers for sure. However, Jio is definitely not the first telecom operator to do so. While Jio rolled out with this feature in June, Airtel had offered the Disney + Hotstar VIP subscription back in April. The one-year subscription can be enjoyed on the 401 plan on Airtel. You can recharge with a plan from both these operators on the Airtel Payments Bank platform.
How would you claim this offer?
The process of claiming the offer is very straightforward. The first thing you should do is to recharge your number with one of the Jio recharge packs that offer this benefit. The Rs. 401 monthly plan and the Rs. 2599 yearly recharge plan is among those. You can also get the benefit of the Rs. 612 plan and the Rs. 1208 4G data voucher. The 612 plan would not add to your validity. It will have the same validity as the base plan, offer 72 GB of high speed data and 6000 minutes of calling from Jio to other numbers. The 1208 plan is 8x Rs. 151 plans. You will get 240 days of validity with 30 GB data per month.
The Airtel Payments Bank platform will earn you some cashback. However, you need to keep in mind that if you would like to continue with the Disney + Hotstar VIP, the JIO account needs to remain active.
The offer has been given only for prepaid users, and it has not been clarified as to how long this would remain available. However, you should note that Jio offers only the VIP subscription of Disney + Hotstar. This is not the Premium version. The VIP subscription offers dubs in the local language of Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney movies. However, you will get Hotstar Specials, live sports, and kids content through this subscription.
If you do not want to make mobile recharge with a Jio plan, you can choose a 4G data voucher, too, for the Disney + Hostar VIP subscription. Jio is cheaper than the other telecom providers, and it offers a very good network in most areas. With these recent offers, the company is trying to stay right at the top and dominate the telecom industry. Though it does not offer unlimited calling facilities, the offered calling minutes from Jio to other connections are mostly quite sufficient. Otherwise, you have the option to recharge when you run out of talk time.
