Airtel launches Rs 401 prepaid pack with free Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription
Airtel has announced yet another exciting prepaid data pack for the people in quarantine. The Rs 401 data pack launched by Airtel comes with a free subscription to Disney+ Hotstar VIP. The streaming app recently arrived in India to compete with the existing players such as Amazon Prime, Netflix and the local apps like Zee5 and Alt Balaji. With this new plan, Airtel plans to target the audience who are sitting under complete lockdown due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The pack not only provides data benefits but also gives free subscription to the Disney+ at no extra cost.
The new Airtel Rs 401 plan has its advantages and disadvantages too. On one hand, it might attract the customers with a free subscription to a streaming app while on the other hand, it can put off customers for not providing any calling or SMS benefits. Yes, you read that right. The Rs 401 data pack doesn’t provide voice calling and SMS benefits. The plan only provides 3GB data per day for 28 days. However, the free subscription that it provides is valid for 365 days.
The customers planning to recharge their numbers with Rs 401 plan should know that they can only avail this plan once a year. “Customer will be able to recharge with this product only once in 360 days to avoid wrong selling & customer issues,” Airtel was quoted by Telecom Talk as saying.
The Disney+ Hotstar VIP costs Rs 399 a year but if you are an Airtel subscriber, you can avail this plan as it would also provide data benefits up to 3GB per day. And even when your prepaid plan gets over, the subscription to the streaming app will remain valid for 365 days. Airtel also said that the customers can recharge their numbers with any other plan on the top of the Rs 401 prepaid plan.
