DTH operators have been focusing more and more on the OTT offerings as they have been for the satellite TV channels. As a result of this, we are getting to more services which bring OTT content to the TV screens alongside the traditional TV channels. The biggest example of this is none other than the Tata Sky Binge service. Under this service which comes for a measly price of Rs 249 per month, the subscribers get a special edition of the Amazon Fire TV Stick which allows the users to access OTT applications on your TV. But, this is not where it ends. The Tata Sky Binge also bundles complimentary subscriptions as well which spares the additional expense for the subscribers of the service. This is also the reason why Tata Sky Binge can help you save a lot of money which you would otherwise spend on OTT subscriptions.

Tata Sky Binge Service – Amazon Fire TV Stick Tata Sky Edition

Another name which comes to the users’ minds when it is about upgrading their TV to a smart TV with various subscriptions services is the Amazon Fire TV Stick. For someone who has a simple TV without any quirks, the Amazon Fire TV Stick is one of the best options to choose from. However, with the Tata Sky Binge Service, the subscribers get the Amazon Fire TV Stick – Tata Sky Edition complimentary. The market price of the Amazon Fire TV Stick, when brought separately is Rs 3,999. While using the Tata Sky Binge Service, the Amazon Fire TV Stick will be available for subscribers without an upfront payment. The Amazon Fire TV Stick goes into your HDMI port and uses your Tata Sky subscriber to log-in.

One of the advantages of getting Tata Sky Binge is that you are exempted to pay any upfront price for the Amazon Fire TV Stick. Also, on making a price comparison of these products, it is not hard to conclude that Tata Sky’s Binge service is actually a steal deal since the combination of these services would make your bills soar sky-high. For example, the Hotstar subscription is available for Rs 299 per month or Rs 999 per year, whereas the Eros Now subscription is available for Rs 99 per month of Rs 950 per year. When you are paying for Tata Sky Binge Service, since these costs are already covered, you get a pretty sweet deal for your money.

Perks of Tata Sky Binge Service

The thing to keep in mind here is that the Tata Sky Binge service has a drawback of not coming with bundled content from Netflix, Voot and ZEE5 which is something that you will have to keep in mind before going for this choice. Even with that, the subscribers can decide to install these apps on their Amazon Fire TV Stick and in case they have an existing subscription on these platforms, then they can use it to access content on their bigger screen. In addition to this, subscribers of this service will be able to access the Tata Sky Video on Demand (VoD) library with more than 5,000 titles of TV shows.

Tata Sky Binge Added Benefit: Free Amazon Prime Membership for 3 Months

One of the added benefits of the Tata Sky Binge service is that the subscribers of the service will get to access free Amazon Prime benefits for 3 months straight. Under Tata Sky Binge, the consumers will be able to access the Amazon Prime Video content through the Amazon Fire TV Stick Tata Sky edition. Not only this, but as part of Amazon Prime membership the customers will also get access to Prime Music, faster deliveries and exclusive Prime deals as well. After the three month period, the subscribers will only have to pay Rs 129 per month to keep their Amazon Prime subscription going.

Comparison Against Standard Version of Amazon Fire TV Stick

This a genuine question which a lot of Tata Sky subscribers might have – whether to get a separate Amazon Fire TV Stick or get the Tata Sky Binge subscription. To which we would say that the Amazon Fire TV Stick only makes sense if you want to own it. But, if that is not a concern and you are ready to give away your Tata Sky edition Fire TV Stick, then the added benefit of bundled subscription and the easy monthly payment scheme is something that is better than the upfront cost for the standard Amazon Fire TV Stick.
