Even with firestick, you’d need some subscriptions like hotstar VIP (to watch live cricket) and prime to watch movies.
Also, should consider your internet plan as well. Unlimited is recommended.1080p shows consume bandwidth quickly.
I have a 40Mbps 3TB per month plan (airtel). My family is slowly shifting to firestick completely.

Worst idea

Internet connection must be faster with unlimited data which no one gives for now

Netflix: 800rs
Prime: 130rs (1000/yr)
Hotstar: 300rs (1000/yr)
Broadband: 750rs+
And you have to subscribe to even more for getting all the stuff you get on cable.

Total = 1980rs+ per month.

Firestick extra: 2400-3500rs.

How is this economical?

Bought at 1200 only…but prime should be there always….plus hotstar subscription….and WiFi connection (which is only possible in developed metro cities)
So not possible for everyone

I use JioTv with FireTv, and then there are tons of free TV software to go with. I pay around Rs.500 for 40Mbps wifi line

Both the app are free of cost. So nothing apart from Internet cost.

You just need a good internet connection, and you can enjoy all the channels for free.

Also now youtube has most of the Hindi and English news channels live apart from tons of movies and interesting videos.

Do airtel broadband allow flexible recharge plans?
I mean no payment for a month/reduce payment for a month/holiday period?
This could help us reduce the effective cost.

The plan costs 999 + taxes.
Probably was a limited time offer that I was able to grab.

Just to add here, I don’t like the interface of Oreo/ thop tv. Not very user friendly with firestick remote.

The biggest challenge is to changing your mindset from watching “whatever is coming on tv” to “whatever I want to watch on TV”. Its very hard to come up with something to watch. My parents in the end just say “just turn on Sony channel on dth” because they’re habitual of watching whatever is coming (along with ads).
Apps like sony liv, allow you to watch shows for free after they have been telecasted on normal TV.
