Reliance Industries owned Viacom18, and Warner Bros. Discovery have signed a multi-year agreement. With this, JioCinema will become the home for HBO content in India. This is a big development as users in India were pretty confused about where they would be able to see HBO content again. To put it into context for you, HBO content was removed from Disney+ Hotstar on March 31, 2023. JioCinema will now be streaming both IPL and HBO content, which is a big loss for Disney Star.
