JioCinema Premium can now be purchased as a monthly subscription in India, the streaming service announced on Thursday. The Viacom18-owned platform will allow users to stream movies and TV series – including content from HBO, Paramount, Peacock and Warner Bros. – ad-free, up to 4K resolution, along with the ability to download content for offline viewing. The Default plan will allow streaming to one screen at a time, while the Family plan will increase that limit to four devices.

The subscription page on the service’s website reveals that the JioCinema Premium plan is now priced at Rs. 29 per month with single-screen access, while the Family four-screen subscription costs Rs. 89. It is worth noting that the mention of ‘special introductory prices’ for both the JioCinema Premium plans suggests that these plans could eventually be priced at Rs. 59 and Rs. 149 per month for the individual and family plans respectively.

Previously, JioCinema Premium was available as part of an annual subscription that was priced at Rs. 999. This plan is no longer listed on the streaming service’s website, which means customers will have to opt for the monthly plan. With the ongoing introductory prices, the effective price of the JioCinema Premium personal plan is Rs. 348 — much lower than the older plan. Meanwhile, the Family plan effectively costs Rs. 1068 in one year.

At its current price, JioCinema costs less than Netflix, Disney+ Hotstar and Amazon Prime Video. The cheapest Netflix plan in India costs Rs. 149 per month, while Disney+ Hotstar and Amazon Prime Video cost Rs. 299 for a one-month subscription.

Meanwhile, JioCinema’s website says that both individual and family plans will offer ad-free streaming, except for live content and sports content – including the Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket tournament. The platform will continue to offer access to sports content for free, along with advertisements that will still be displayed for subscribers who opt for any of the JioCinema Premium plans, according to the platform.
