Jio Fiber has expanded its postpaid subscription options, introducing six “entertainment plans” which are promoted for their “zero entry cost” for new customers. Starting at Rs. 399 per month, the new Jio Fiber postpaid plans offer access to up to 14 over-the-top (OTT) content delivery platforms at an additional price of Rs. 100 or Rs. 200 — depending on the number chosen by the subscriber. Streaming platforms available under these plans include Disney+ Hotstar, Zee5, Eros Now, and SonyLIV. Existing prepaid users can also migrate to one of these new Jio Fiber postpaid plans.
The new Jio Fiber postpaid plans are available to all users from Friday, April 22, Jio said in a press release.
New Jio Fiber users who sign up for one of these postpaid entertainments won’t have to incur an “entrance cost”, according to the company – because the required internet box (gateway router), set-top box and installation are included at no additional cost. However, customers will first need to register for at least three months, which helps Jio retain users and cover initial costs.
Unlike new users, existing Jio Fiber users can migrate to any of the new postpaid entertainment plans using the MyJio app by paying one month in advance.
