Bharti Airtel will now allow its postpaid and broadband customers to subscribe to the ZEE5 Premium subscription via the “Add to bill” offer through the “Digital Store” section in the Airtel Thanks app. The terms and conditions along with the FAQ have gone live today for the new offer.
ZEE5 Premium content access will be available through the offer which can be claimed only against the mobile number through which “Add to bill” is opted in for, ZEE5 Premium content access will be activated only after the offer has opted in for the customer.
Airtel had back in August discontinued ZEE5 Premium subscription from Airtel Thanks Platinum benefits post which postpaid and broadband plans no longer offered ZEE5 Premium subscription. Airtel prepaid customers are currently able to either buy the Rs 289 ZEE5 Premium bundle prepaid plan or buy monthly quarterly, and annual ZEE5 Premium top-ups from the Digital Store.
The content access will be offered for 1 month from the date of subscription and continue for the full 1-month term even if the customer cancels the subscription during the 1 month period or ports out of Airtel or migrates to Airtel prepaid. The subscription purchased via Airtel will be independent of any existing ZEE5 Premium subscription taken by the customer elsewhere.
The subscription can be availed at Rs 89 according to the Airtel Thanks FAQ listing which will be added to the monthly bill. The subscription can be simply added to the bill through the “Digital Store”. The subscription will only be applicable on the number on which “Add to bill” has been availed.
Airtel One Homes customers will also be eligible for ZEE5 Premium “Add to bill” option with customers allowed cancel their subscription at any point of time. Airtel however will not offer any refund for the current subscription with the existing subscription deemed “paid for” and continue for the entire month from the date of your subscription.
