Have you all been living under a rock? Because the Indian telecom industry has been abuzz with word that Reliance Jio has launched its first-ever Cricket Plan. I know it might come as a surprise to most of you but yes, Reliance Jio is finally launching their cricket plan, albeit it is not called that at the moment. No more will cricket lovers have to suffer from what Canning and Gavaskar called ‘Cricket Saturdays’. The much-awaited JioCricket plan has finally hit the country and it seems like everyone has something to say about it! While there are some very good reasons for this new plan launch, most of us either love or hate them. So let’s dive in and see what we think about them.
What is Reliance Jio Cricket?
Reliance Jio’s new Cricket Plan is an offer that gives new and existing customers access to all ten major international cricket competitions. Customers will get access to the Indian Premier League, the Indian Super League, the Indian T20 Blast as well as the Caribbean T20 League, the Pakistan Super League, and the Sri Lanka Premier League. You can expect to pay around $80 for the first year of the plan. This is not just limited to cricket though. With plans starting from as low as $8, you will be able to access a ton of channels and content.
How Does Reliance Jio Cricket Work?
To start your subscription with JioCricket you have to have an active connection to a JioFi or digital plan. You can then log onto the JioCricket app and select your channels and services. Once your JioFi or the internet connection is up and running you can log onto the JioCricket app and select your channels and services.
What are the benefits of Reliance Jio Cricket?
Like most service providers, Reliance Jio offers benefits for their prepaid customers. One of them is the free subscription to Disney+ which is a great deal for India. The free subscription to Disney+ will last you one year and then you have to pay $39.99 for the full year to keep using it. This is something worth paying for.
Is it worth switching over to Reliance Jio Cricket?
Well, if you are a sports lover or a cricket lover this is a much-awaited plan by the telecom giant. But as we mentioned above, there are some great reasons for this new plan launch. One, this is a total revamp of the entire setup and user experience. You will no longer have to spend countless hours on the phone with various operators and get various plans and features combinations. Two, this new plan will be even more affordable. Remember, though, that this is only available for JioFibre customers. If you are not a JioFibre subscriber yet, you can still get a free trial of JioFibre and test drive the new plan. And three, this will be the first plan with Indian Pay-TV support. What will you do with your free year of Disney+? We recommend you take it up with the family and watch some Disney movies and TV Shows together. People are talking about it. So be sure to mention that you received the media gift from us in your feedback if you decide to purchase a plan from us in the future!
The Indian telecom industry has been dealing with major challenges for the last 2-3 years. Margin expansion was difficult, price hikes were extreme and customers were getting indifferent service. To survive, the industry decided to revamp its image, offering high-end plans that are expensive and may not be accessible to all. This will be the first time in India that the nation’s largest telecom operator is going with a sports theme. So, while it is good that they are trying to distinguish themselves from the rest of the industry, it will be even better if they can deliver on their promises. We believe that customers will come to love this new plan and that JioCricket will become a household name in no time.
