    These days telecom companies are trying to make bundle packs by offering OTT subscription. The Reliance Jio is no exception. The 4G VoLTE player is now offering Disney+ Hotstar subscription on a few prepaid packs.

    Let’s go through each pack and get the comprehensive details:

    Reliance Jio 598 Prepaid Plan:

    The Reliance Jio 598 pack offers 2GB/day 4G data and 100 SMS/day for a period of 56 days. This recharge plan also packs 1-year Disney+ Hotstar subscription worth ₹399 at no extra cost.

    As usual, the user gets unlimited Jio-Jio voice calling and 2000 minutes for Jio to Non-Jio calls. Moreover, the daily 2GB/day accounts to 112GB 4G high-speed data. Post the FUP, the speed is throttled to 64 kbps.

    It’s to be noted that there’s a regular Jio 444 plan that offers daily 2GB data, unlimited Jio calling and 2000 non-Jio minutes. That means, if you want Disney+ Hotstar subscription, then pay the difference of ₹154.

    Reliance Jio 777 Prepaid Plan:

    With daily 1.5GB data, you get another Disney+ Hotstar bundled pack. This has a validity of 84 days. Along with 5GB data as complimentary, this prepaid plan offers a total of 131GB data.

    In this pack, the user gets 3000 minutes of non-Jio.

    Reliance Jio 2599 Prepaid Plan:

    Similarly, there’s annual plan ₹2599 that offers daily 2GB data and 100 SMS per day for a period of 365 days. Along with daily 2GB data, there’s a 10GB complimentary pack on this Jio ₹2599 recharge plan.

    That means the subscriber gets a total of 740GB data. Post the daily 2GB FUP, the speed reduces to 64kbps.

    Along with Unlimited Jio calls, the user gets 12000 minutes Jio to Non-Jio calls. Disney+ Hotstar subscription worth ₹399 is the additional benefit.

    Similarly, there’s an annual ₹2399 plan that offers daily 2GB data and 100 SMS per day. It also packs unlimited Jio calling and 12000 minutes for non-Jio calls.

    Here, the Reliance Jio has charged ₹200 extra when compared to the regular annual pack. However, the complimentary 10GB pack brings down the difference to ₹100.

    What’s Your Opinion?

    When the telecom companies specify at no extra cost, one should consider that there’s something hidden. In reality, the hidden things are much costlier than the regular ones.

    Say for example, by paying an extra ₹154, you get Disney+ Hotstar subscription along with your regular pack. This comes with 56 days of validity. So, if you want to enjoy Disney+ Hotstar subscription for the whole year, you need to recharge this Jio 598 bundled pack for 6.5 times.

    That brings our extra spent value to ₹1003 (154x6.5). Instead, you can straightaway purchase Disney+ Hotstar subscription at ₹399 thereby saving ₹604.

    There are about 10 recharge plans in Reliance Jio Prepaid segment that are bundled with Disney+ Hotstar subscription. Except for the annual plan, all other plans do charge for the OTT benefit in the name of FREE.

    In contrary, the Reliance Jio 2599 Prepaid annual pack saves ₹300 and is a better pack to opt.
