Then there are the incumbents like Amazon Prime, Hotstar and the likes. In comparison, Hotstar costs you Rs. 299 per month, while Amazon Prime membership (including video and music streaming services) is priced at Rs. 129 per month.

So now that you know what it offers, let’s compare it with the brand’s other plans: Basic at Rs. 499 per month, Standard at Rs. 649 and finally Premium tier at Rs. 799 (all monthly charges).
