Tata Sky Binge Service Offering Streaming Content for Rs 249 Could Be a Better Choice Than Separate Subscriptions

To rival the effect of video-on-demand sites and OTT apps, Tata Sky has introduced its own service called Tata Sky Binge

Highlights
  • Under this service, Tata Sky offers Amazon Fire TV Stick Tata Sky Edition to the customers for Rs 249 per month
  • The service could be a better beneficial deal for subscribers instead of buying the separate subscriptions of these services

With the advent of over-the-top services which allow the users to stream video on demand content online, the DTH industry has been affected. However, the DTH companies and the service providers are putting up a fight of their own. Tata Sky, one of the significant DTH providers of India has also launched its own service called Tata Sky Binge which allows its subscribers to access content from various streaming sites like Hotstar, Sun NXT and Hungama Play on their TV. It is worth noting that the Tata Sky Binge service is available to the users for a meagre price of Rs 249 per month. However, even with that price tag, the question arises whether or not it would be worth it for the users to buy the service from Tata Sky or would they be better off subscribing to these streaming platforms on their own.

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.

Fire stick cost 2499 to 2999- bank offer during offer sale. New volume remote one is not that useful to spend extra. Install thoptv and other free streaming apps. Only NF,prime,sunnxt is left for subscription. Even content in NF,prime can be streamed for free with dead terrarium like apps. Tatasky deal is a never ending burden. More over family account sharing lowers subscription bill even more.
