Jio has some special cricket plans for its customers that will help you watch all the IPL matches live and in realtime thanks to the Disney+ Hotstar subscription it comes bundled with. 

These special Jio Cricket Plans come with a year’s subscription to Disney+ Hotstar VIP worth 399 free.

Indian Premier League (IPL) season is just around the corner and like last year, official streaming partner Hotstar has put the live matches behind a paywall. Does that mean you cannot watch the matches at all without a Disney+ Hotstar membership?

No. You can still watch the matches on Hotstar for free, the stream will just be delayed by five minutes. If you are ok with that you have nothing to worry about. But if you are planning to keep up with the cricket matches real time, you need to get a Disney+ Hotstar membership.

Now, the premium membership for Disney+ Hotstar costs 1,499 for a year and the Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription costs 399 for a year. If IPL is all you plan to watch on Hotstar, the VIP plan works just fine.

Jio is bringing you this VIP plan, free of cost with some select prepaid plans.

Valid for one year, the Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscriptions come with the special Cricket Plans Jio has announced for this season.

Under these Cricket Plans, there is a 499 Cricket Pack that brings you a year’s subscription of Disney+ Hotstar, 1.5GB of daily data that you can avail for the whole of the cricket season (56 days).

There there is the 777 quarterly subscription that gets you the Disney+ Hotstar subscription, 131GB of data, unlimited voice calling and free access to Jio apps for 84 days.

There is also a 401 plan that is valid for one month and gets you 90GB of data, unlimited voice calls and the Disney+ Hotstar subscription.

The 2,599 plan has a validity of 12 months, comes with 740GB of data and unlimited voice calls along with the one year subscription to Disney+ Hotstar.
