Charge will be 299 Rs. from next month and includes some OTT apps subscription.
(Disney + Hotstar Sony LIV Zee5 Voot Select Curiosity Stream Voot Kids ErosNow SunNXT Hungama Play ShemarooMe)

Worth it? Alternatives?

Also, amazon prime comes free for 1st 3 months… Does it get cancelled as soon as I discontinue binge subscription? (Someone who has discontinued after free trial, please guide)

300 is too much imo. You get erosnow sunnxt shemaroome free with jiotv.
You can buy 6 month zeetv for around 30 rs on dd.
Sonyliv is 500 for 1 year like without any trading, just buying directly as gv.
Hotstar, i think would be Vip which will be around 250 for year.
Voot select is going for 60 for 6 months, not sure tho
Remaining curiosity stream – only if u are interested in sci docu.
So total around 1000 to 1200 for a year excluding prime and curiosity stream
So not worth it IMO.

The website talks about some Firestick Tatasky edition “at no extra cost”. So do you get the device free? But you still have to pay for your tatasky connection right?
Does not make sense.
Better to dump tatasky completely and buy a firestick and go for the paid apps.

Useless actually. Better buy directly instead.

Yes the firestick device is free which itself is worth 3999 Rs. on amazon.

As per calculations by @TestV above, OTT costs works out to ~ 100 Rs. per month.

So I am effectively paying Rs. 200 per month for the device.

Given it’s dth bill, through some payment offers, 15-20% discount would be generally available. So Rs. 250 per month.

Is firestick worth it? Or cheaper alternatives are better?

You can get firestick at cheaper rates during sale. And its “tatasky version” and not normal firestick. So it is expected to be a crippled version of the real thing.
As I understand, this is in addition to your regular tata sky plan. So 400-600 for regular plan plus 299 for this. About 900. Taxes will be extra. Then you have to pay for data additionally.
For 999+tax, you can get a Jio fibre connection plus all channels.
Clearly not even a good deal.

as others have pointed out, you can get most of these subscriptions at a really low price and then u can use any tv stick to replace tatasky itself with zee, star, colors and sony channels with their apps and news channels are mostly free, if fire tv is expensive go for mi or nokia stick.then use half of the monthly saved amount for faster internet connection. you’ll be good to go. plus you can watch things anytime you please unlike tv’s fixed schedule.

It depends on how much you use Premium Membership. If you want to buy it, 750 is the lowest price you can get, AFAIK.
