  1. Not worth it. Same shows except the ones from Curiosity Stream can be streamed for free via Vodafone Play which supports Chromecast and MX Player for TV.

    I don’t get what Airtel is thinking here. Why put a premium paywall for their customers while competition is offering complimentary access.

    • Even Jio Cinema supports Chromecast and has an Android TV app as well. As for Curiosity Stream content, now even that has left Airtel Xstream, so it’s not at all worth paying the 499 for.
