Select Reliance Jio postpaid customers at the end of June got the chance to access Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription for 3 months on a complimentary basis, listings within the TRAI Tariff portal have revealed. The listing in turn has been confirmed by multiple tweets from Jio Care during June which confirm that the offer was rolled out from Jio’s end to its postpaid customers.
According to the listings within the TRAI Tariff portal, Jio reported the promotional offer to TRAI on 30th June, which offered a one-time promotional benefit of a 3-month subscription of Disney+ Hotstar VIP for all Jio postpaid customers on active tariff plan. The benefit was non-transferrable and available only time to each Jio subscriber which could only be accessed if the customer remained on a Jio active plan. The promotional offer was available to Jio postpaid subscribers on plans with monthly rental above Rs 149.
The development back in June went under the radar but tweets from JioCare discovered by OnlyTech confirm that the promotional offer was indeed extended to Jio postpaid customers. Notably, Jio while offers Disney+ Hotstar packs for its prepaid customers, has no such bundled packs for its postpaid customers as of now.
The reporting came five days after it reported to TRAI its Rs 222 Special Tariff Voucher which was offered to Jio customers on annual packs who were unable to access Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription. Under the Rs 222 STV, Jio offered 15 GB unlimited data with a one-year subscription to Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription although the plan being an STV only offered validity coterminous with that of the existing pack.
