Jio and Disney+ Hotstar are partnering up to offer free IPL 2020 live streaming for select customers according to a report by 91Mobiles. The company is looking to provide this benefit with two of its prepaid plans and with select Jio Fiber plans. The two prepaid plans to come with this benefit include the Rs 401 plan and Rs 2,599 plan, whereas, Jio Fiber customers with plans of Rs 849 and above will be able to avail the benefit. Jio customers who are not subscribed to Disney+ Hotstar or who do not have the free access will only be able to watch the content for over five minutes.

We reached out to Reliance Jio for a comment on this but were unable to connect at the time. This space will be updated when we are able to connect with the company.

To recall, Jio along with Hotstar has been livestreaming all IPL matches for the past few times using its JioTV app.

IPL 2020 will be commencing on September 19 and will continue until November 10. This is the first time IPL will not be taking place in India. Instead, it will be taking place in the UAE.
