IPL 2020 is only a few days away, and Reliance Jio has unveiled yet another recharge plan that brings along benefits for users who have not subscribed to Disney+ Hotstar yet. Jio’s new ₹598 offers a free annual subscription for Disney-owned streaming giant Hotstar.
While Hotstar has streamed IPL for many years, this year is slightly different. The streaming service will not allow free users to stream IPL matches at all this season. That means, if you are hoping to watch IPL 2020 on your laptop or smartphone you will need a Disney+ Hotstar subscription to do so.
With Jio’s ₹598 plan, you essentially save the ₹399 you would be paying to Hotstar for an annual VIP subscription. Bear in mind that it’s not the Premium tier, so if you’re watching TV shows and movies as well, you won’t be able to see most of them in English unless you upgrade to Hotstar Premium.
