‘When will I get Hotstar premium membership?’ that’s one of the questions in Jio’s official website’s faq section. It seems Jio and Disney+ Hotstar has finally managed to strike a deal as Reliance Jio has started teasing Disney+ Hotstar annual VIP membership with a coming soon banner on its website and app.
How to get Disney+ Hotstar annual VIP subscription For Jio Customer?
Since the banner only says ‘coming soon’ the telco is expected to reveal details in the coming weeks. Whether the Disney+ Hotstar will be a part of Jio Prime membership or it will be available to those who opt for specific recharge plans remains to be seen.
During the JioFiber launch announcement, the company stated that Jio will forge partnerships with various OTT players. The telecom operator already partnered with Disney+ Hotstar for their JioTV app that lets Jio subscribers watch Star Channels on Hotstar for free. With this upcoming annual VIP subscription, the company will be able to offer its customers access to a larger content library.
Jio competitors Vodafone Idea and Airtel have been offering such OTT service integration on selected prepaid and postpaid plans to their customers. Vodafone Idea came out with Vodafone Red plans with a complimentary Netflix subscription. Similarly, Airtel offers year-long Amazon Prime membership to its V-Fiber and postpaid Infinity plan users.
