Vi (formerly known as Vodafone Idea) has launched new prepaid recharge plans along with one-year of Disney+ Hotstar Mobile. The new plans start from Rs. 501 and go up to Rs. 2,595. Customers also get benefits such as data allocation, unlimited voice calls, and SMS benefits with the new prepaid recharge plans. Vi has essentially added Disney+ Hotstar Mobile subscription to its old prepaid plans and bumped up their prices. In addition to the launch of the new prepaid plans, Vi is bundling a one-year subscription of Disney+ Hotstar Mobile with all its postpaid plans starting from Rs. 499. The latest move is essentially to stay competitive against Jio and Airtel as both are also offering specific plans with Disney+ Hotstar Mobile.
