- Vi Rs 2,595 prepaid plan now offers a Disney+ Hotstar VIP annual subscription
- The free ZEE5 Premium subscription included earlier has been removed
- The daily data limit has also been dowgraded from 2GB per day to 1.5GB per day
Vi’s Rs 2,595 prepaid recharge plan now bundles a free Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription. With this, the plan joins the telco’s Rs 401, Rs 501, Rs 601 and Rs 801 prepaid plans that offer the OTT benefit. When Vi (formerly Vodafone Idea) launched these plans last month to take on Airtel and Jio, it was still missing a top-tier, long-term Disney+ Hotstar bundle from its lineup.
Notably, Airtel and Jio offer Rs 2,698 and Rs 2,599 annual prepaid plans respectively with a free Disney+ Hotstar VIP membership. With the revised Rs 2,595 prepaid recharge plan, Vi can now go head-on with these two competing plans. Let’s take a look at what the plan offers.
Vi Rs 2,595 prepaid recharge plan: benefits, validity
Vi has revised the Rs 2,595 prepaid plan to include a free Disney+ Hotstar VIP membership. The plan comes with a validity of 365 days. It’s worth noting that this plan used to offer a free ZEE5 Premium subscription previously, but this has now been removed in lieu of the Disney+ Hotstar VIP benefit. In addition, the plan used to offer 2GB data per day to users, but has now been revised to offer 1.5GB data per day.
As for the other benefits, the Vi Rs 2,595 prepaid pack offers truly unlimited voice calls within the country and 100 SMSes per day. Apart from the 1.5GB daily data for the duration of the validity, the pack also comes with Vi’s Binge All Night offer, which lets users consume unlimited data between 12am and 6am every day without deducting data balance. Additionally, it offers the Weekend Data Rollover benefit, which lets you carry forward unused data from Monday to Friday over the weekend. Lastly, the pack offers access to Vi Movies & TV Classic.
