Before dumping on Jio, remember, Disney Corp is really possessive and aggressive in terms of partnership and in every business they involved in. Not sure why everyone is dumping on solely one Jio even though they have proper track record of keeping lowest prices in all the fields they are involved in. I think negotiation with Disney failed or in the process of price revisement in B2B model. It's the only thing I can think of. If Jio was planning revision of prices it would have taken off all OTT platforms right?.

Whatever said and done, Jio absolutely revolutionalized Indian mobile data market. Remember the days we used to pay 250 rs for 1GB data??? We are getting spoiled by getting services for free.

@Altruist Yeah!! I remember paying hefty amount of money for airtel and Vodafone. I think they weren't charging whopping 250/- for just 1GB data. I ported my entire company's mobile corporate plan for almost all the available companies because of hefty fees. Like Vodafone, idea, airtel, etc. Finally now in Jio. There are still network issues even in Bengaluru areas. However, costs of mobile plan drastically reduced 95%. I remember one of my friend who was in love at that time had a some kind of couple plan which was costed around 3.5k/ month!!!!!  the guy escaped with her to marry and ne have a cute little kid and happily married which is rare sight in love marriages.

Hey @Jecker thanks for your comment, I checked again the Rs.1499 plan is not listed on the Jio website mobile prepaid plans list - https://www.jio.com/selfcare/plans/mobility/pre... 

Are you talking about the mobile prepaid plan or some other? since the article is about mobile prepaid one's.

Hey @n.r.mithaiwala149 I had checked in the MyJio app while writing the article and it was not available then or at least I could not find it (even had checked Gpay Jio plans as well). I have updated the article now. Thanks a lot for letting me know.

Hi Praveen, @praveensappali2006794 Jio may have a good track record of making highly affordable products and services.

But, we are also aware of Jio's marketing tactics of providing services at the lowest prices first and revising its plans and prices afterward (Nothing wrong. All part of the business)

Disney+ Hotstar may be aggressive in terms of partnerships but so is Reliance Jio in its business development and marketing. 

Lastly, as you also said, Jio is not the sole responsible party for this decision. Disney+ Hotstar is too. 

Thanks for your thoughtful comment.

TimesPrime is not honoring the membership purchased off Tatacliq. TN stopped supplying codes to Tatacliq a d now claim that any issues being faced by the consumers should be sent over to the Tatacliq team only.

Despite repeatedly telling TN that due to server issues the membership couldn't get activated, they are doubling down on their stubbornness. 🤬

Disney Hotstar now 'allows' you to watch the free movies in glorious pixelated avi-esque format... Earlier, the same movies were free to watch in HD. 😑
