Telecom operators have been offering a whole host of features to its customers to keep them in their fold. There is now an offer from Airtel which is great if you want a subscription of Disney+Hotstar. This offer comes in just a few months after Jio offered a free subscription to Disney+Hotstar for its postpaid and broadband customers.
Now, Airtel is not doing the same and its customers are not eligible for a free subscription to the content streaming platform too.
You can check out the new offer on the Airtel website and it is applicable for some select postpaid and broadband plans.
So, in order for postpaid customers to be eligible, they need to be on a plan that costs above ₹499. For Airtel’s Xstream customers, they need to be subscribing to plans that cost more than ₹999 and higher.
This is how you can avail the offer:
In order to get the offer, customers will need to buy the eligible pack. Once that is done, you have to head over to the Airtel Thanks app and look for the offer under the #airtelthanks sanction. You can then apply the offer by logging into your respective Hotstar account.
So, what you get is the normal annual subscription to Disney+Hotstar. The plan you are getting costs ₹1,499 and it will give you access to all the VIP content and live shows. The VIP plan in itself costs ₹399/year and comes without any access to English content.
However, and most importantly, the offer from Airtel will not add on to any subscription that you currently have going on. If you are already on an annual subscription plan, activating this offer will disable the previous one and start afresh. So if you have just renewed your subscription for an annual plan, we suggest you don’t take this unless you don’t mind losing a few weeks/months – you will get to use the new plan for a full year though.
Now, if you have to move to a lower-segment on Airtel, the offer will be deactivated. Hence, you need to stick to your Airtel plan through this one year period.
We can safely assume that Airtel’s offer on Disney+Hotstar is better than Jio’s as Jio is offering the free annual subscription for plans above ₹999 for JioFiber. It is only offering the VIP subscription that does not come with access to English content.
