Tata Sky recently launched its Binge service that brings together digital content from Amazon Prime, Hotstar, Tata Sky’s own video-on-demand (VOD) collection, Eros NOW, Sun NXT, and Hungama Play on a single platform, which can be accessed via the PrimeTV Stick. In addition, the Amazon FireTV Stick is being given out for free as a part of an introductory offer.
Tata Sky Binge will cost Rs 249 per month, though access to the first 30 days trial period is free. So essentially, Binge subscriber will get access to content from different VoD platforms at a monthly fee of Rs 249. As mentioned before, this includes content from Amazon Prime and hotstar.
But each service has its own advantage and cater to different specialised demands. We look at what Amazon Prime Video, hotstar, and Binge offer in terms of content to help you make an informed decision on which service suits you best.
Tata Sky Binge at Rs 249 per month
Tata Sky Binge covers both hotstar and Amazon Prime subscription, plus it offers much more content from more VoD platforms and free FireTV Stick. Though it offers a lot more services, do note that Binge is limited to Tata Sky subscribers only. Amazon Prime Video and hotstar are open to everyone. With Tata Sky Binge, a user also gets the company’s own VoD service and access to seven days of shows.
Amazon Prime at Rs 129 per month
