The postpaid plans include Rs 499, Rs 699 and Rs 1,099 personal packs, and Rs 649, Rs 799, Rs 999 and Rs 1,348 family plans. These plans now offer an annual Disney+ Hotstar VIP membership as well as Vi Movies & TV access to users.
On the other hand, the telco is still offering ZEE5 Premium subscription with iits Rs 355, Rs 405, Rs 595, Rs 795 and Rs 2,595 prepaid plans.
