Subscription cost for Jio cinema app

Unlike amazon prime, Netflix, Hotstar, etc., Jio Cinema is a part of an umbrella content service provider known as Reliance Jio. It is the sibling service of Jio Music, so to say. So if someone is a part of the Reliance Jio network and uses it, they can easily access Jio cinema with their mobile number.

So no matter where you are or which device you are using, all you have to do is put in your Jio number and an OTP, and you are sorted. All it will take is your Jio Id and Password with your Jio Sim to stream and enjoy your videos.

However, the content gets limited if you are not a Jio user. Honestly, at present, the options are quite overwhelming; even if you are using the plan of 149 a month, you will get access to Jio cinema.

Let’s take a look at the prices:

  • 1 Month Access to Jio Cinema is 149rs.
  • 1 Year access to Jio Cinema is 1699rs.

Also, as there is a 1.5 Gb of internet limit daily, once you cross this limit, you will get internet at the speed of 64 Kbps. So, there is another long-term plan priced at Rs. 9999 per month in which you will get 750 GB of high-speed internet; when it is crossed, the speed will drop to 64 Kbps.
