Jio revises Disney+Hotstar plans
Telecom companies have made developments that came along with Disney+ Hotstar plans benefits. While Airtel revised some of its plans, Jio is now adding data benefits to these plans. It will offer up to 10GB of additional data along with its Disney+ Hotstar plans. While the telco has increased the prices of these plans directly in line with the pricing of the basic Disney+ Hotstar plan, it now aims to give users additional data at no extra cost.
