If you're a fan of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and are currently enjoying streaming it for free on Jio Cinema, you might want to take note of the latest news.]
The streaming service provider Jio Cinema plans to compete with major players like Amazon Prime Video and Disney+Hotstar by charging viewers for its content.
According to reports, the company will soon add over 100 new movies and web series to its platform.
However, the IPL 2023 match of the year, scheduled for May 28, 2023, will still be available for free on Jio Cinema. It is only after this that the company will start charging viewers for its content.
Jyoti Deshpande, the company's media President, recently revealed in an interview with Bloomberg that Jio Cinema plans to expand its offerings beyond cricket broadcasts.
Deshpande said that the move is aimed at challenging other players in the competitive Indian market and that the exact pricing structure for Jio Cinema's content is yet to be finalized.
The move is expected to boost the company's revenue and strengthen its position in the streaming industry.
It will also allow Jio Cinema to offer more options for its viewers. However, rest assured that you can still enjoy the matches for free on the platform.
Apart from streaming IPL 2023 matches for free, Jio has also launched cricket plans with 3GB of data per day, as well as additional data add-on packs and special vouchers.
The new Cricket Add-On packs are meant to help people who enjoy watching IPL 2023 matches live on their devices without having to worry about running out of data.
These packs will ensure that users can keep streaming the matches without any interruptions.
