Hello everyone,

Yesterday a coupon “TESTCOUPEV” was floated all over the internet by Sonyliv that offered a one-year subscription for just Rs 1.

The coupon was working absolutely fine and ******** users claimed the offer.

The subscription was live.


Sony tricked users to collect a large sum of money and even user data (worth several billions).

After a few hours, they removed the subscription from all the users.

Now, they have robbed Indian users. They got a large sum of money and data worth billions (that they wouldn’t have got in the upcoming 4-5 years for sure).

All the users do have the SMS from Sonyliv as well.

Let’s promote this post and reach out to the consumer forum and make Sonyliv compensate for the same.

Alternatively, they can refund the users, delete all the user data that they collected with this fraud stunt and issue a public apology.

User data is worth billions. That’s a trick maybe Netflix should learn and it will not drop 20% in one trading session. toungueout

Market prices of OTT services like Voot, Sony liv and Zee5 have drastically fallen since they were bundled in paytm first and timesprime, you can get them at a fraction of actual selling price from trading section here smile
Whether they are still worth or not is a matter of personal preference.

Op Thinks Sony Gets Data Only From SonyLiv 😄😄

When Already It Mentioned TEST in coupon Op thinks It is Genuine 

Many dimers already knows it will be cancelled we are not expecting it will be honored 

when Amazon / Hotstar not honored subscription then why sonyliv?

As per me it is their error not purposely done

SonlyLiv is crap. The software doesn’t work properly. I had subscribed once for 1 year and just used it for a few days and never used it after that. The app was displaying only 20 items in the list of movies in each section and they did nothing even after is raised complaint. I won’t take it even if it is free today.

I don’t think 1 Billion people are interested in Sony LIV. At Max they would have got 1-2 million (very liberal figures).

I don’t think any streaming service worldwide has 1 billion active users, its technically not possible smile
