The Rise of JioCinema

Now, let’s talk about the competition. JioCinema has been making waves in the streaming world, giving other platforms a run for their money. They made headlines by offering free streaming of the FIFA World Cup 2022 and the IPL 2023 matches. Not stopping there, they even added HBO shows to their impressive digital library.


Disney+ Hotstar Strikes Back

With JioCinema gaining immense popularity, Disney+ Hotstar had to pull something out of their bag of tricks. So, they decided to step up their game and counter the competition with a game-changing move of their own. They announced that they would offer all their mobile app users free live streaming of the Asia Cup 2023 and the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. Now that’s what I call a Sixer!


Changing the Game Plan

It’s interesting to note that Disney+ Hotstar offered IPL matches and HBO content on a subscription basis. However, with JioCinema swooping in and taking over these two major streaming content providers, Disney+ Hotstar had to develop a new strategy. They had to ensure that they retained their viewership and kept cricket fans hooked. And what better way to do that than by making these upcoming cricketing events completely free for their users.

Disney+ Hotstar’s Perspective


Sajith Sivanandan, the Head of Disney+ Hotstar, shared his thoughts on the latest announcement. He said, “Disney+ Hotstar has always been at the forefront of India’s rapidly evolving OTT industry. We strive to enhance the viewer experience and delight our regional audiences. We believe we can further grow the overall ecosystem by making the Asia Cup and ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup available to a wider audience.” Kudos to Disney+ Hotstar for their commitment to keeping fans engaged and entertained!


JioCinema Expanding Empire

But hold on folks, the competition isn’t just one-sided. Reliance Jio’s JioCinema is not only taking on Disney+ Hotstar but also challenging all the major streaming services out there. They have been making power moves left and right. Apart from securing streaming rights for the IPL and HBO content, JioCinema recently announced that they would be streaming the upcoming season of Bigg Boss OTT, hosted by none other than Salman Khan. And guess what? It’s completely free for all users! Looks like JioCinema is going all out to win the hearts of entertainment enthusiasts.


The Premium Shift

However, in response to the mounting competition, JioCinema is also considering a shift in strategy. They plan to introduce paid content, starting with the coveted HBO library. JioCinema’s premium plan, priced at Rs 999 annually, is set to provide subscribers with exclusive access to premium content. With this move, JioCinema targets major rivals like Netflix, Prime Video, and Disney. The Results of this Action and Reaction of both the OTT giants will be seen in the near future.


Expanding Beyond Streaming

Jio is not just focusing on their streaming platform; they also have their sights set on developing other platforms. Take JioSaavn, for example. The telecom giant has recently introduced new prepaid plans that include a free subscription to their music streaming service, JioSaavn. This means prepaid customers can now groove to their favourite tunes with JioSaavn Pro subscriptions bundled with their recharge plans. The prepaid plans come in different validity periods, starting at Rs 269 and going up to Rs 789 for the most comprehensive plan.


A Winning Strategy

With these new prepaid plans, Jio is enhancing its mobile recharge offerings and aiming to provide JioSaavn services to its users, just like how JioCinema comes free with select Jio prepaid plans. It’s all about offering a comprehensive entertainment package that caters to every aspect of its customers’ lives.

So, my friends, watch Disney+, Hotstar, and JioCinema as they battle it out in the streaming arena. So all the cricket Enthusiastic Gear up your seats for an epic showdown as both the OTT giants bring you the best in cricket, entertainment, and more. Stay tuned, and let the games begin!
