- Jio has announced five new recharge plans with Disney+ Hotstar mobile subscriptions
- The new plans have been launched due to revised Disney+ Hotstar plans in India
- The new plans offer unlimited voice, data, SMS, Jio Apps, and other benefits
New Jio recharge plans in denominations of Rs 499, Rs 666, Rs 888, Rs 2,599, and Rs 549 have been announced in India. While the first four are all-rounder packs, the Rs 549 recharge plan is a data add-on recharge. All plans offer a subscription to Disney+ Hotstar mobile. The new plans have been launched as a response to Disney+ Hotstar revising its subscription plan into three tiers – Mobile, Super, and Premium. All three plans now offer unrestricted content to users with limitations on the number of devices supported and resolution offered.
Considering Jio only offered Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription for free with its prepaid plan in the past, a revision was due soon. The new recharge plans will be available for recharge starting September 1st, 2021, the same day when new Disney+ Hotstar plans come into effect. Here’s everything you need to know about the new Jio recharge plan and free Disney+ Hotstar membership.
Jio Recharge plans with Disney+ Hotstar Mobile subscription: benefits, validity
Jio recharge plans in the past offered free annual subscription of Disney+ Hotstar VIP plan to its users. The VIP membership was priced at Rs 399 per year and offered limited content access with ads. However, the OTT platform revised its plans to introduce three new tiers last month with unlimited access to all content and no ads.
As a response to this change, Jio has introduced unlimited Disney+ Hotstar mobile access for a year with four new plans along with the existing Rs 2,599 annual pack. Users will now be able to enjoy unrestricted Disney+ Hotstar content including Disney+ originals, Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, HBO, FX, and Showtime titles, among others.
Jio has also announced that existing Jio customers on active Disney+ Hotstar plans will be able to continue enjoying the existing benefits until their current Disney+ Hotstar subscription ends. The new recharge plans will be available from September 1st.
