A lot of factors in the telecom industry have led to the rise of the OTT economy in India. While Reliance Jio has fuelled the massive data volume consumption in India, other content players like Netflix, Hotstar, ZEE5, Amazon Prime Video and others have arrived with an enormous library of video content to satiate the users’ needs of good movies and TV shows. As a result, people are consuming video on these sites at an unprecedented rate. Now, even Netflix has launched a Rs 199 per month plan, which will allow mobile users to watch their favourite shows on their smartphones or tablets. But, you have to agree when we say that watching videos on these platforms tends to consume a lot of data. As such, you need a prepaid plan on your SIM, which can support the Netflix addiction that you may be harbouring.

Reliance Jio Data Packs for Heavy Video Consumers

For the convenience of the users, we have considered that a 2GB per day data pack would suffice for the users without going overboard on the spending.

When it comes to the most economical choice, the subscribers will have the best choice of Rs 498 prepaid plan, which has the least per GB price. In case subscribers feel that 2GB data won’t suffice on their daily data pack, then they can opt for the Rs 299 prepaid plan with 28 days validity which offers 3GB data per day. All the above plans also come with free unlimited calling, 100 SMS per day and access to Reliance Jio apps.
