India’s leading telecom players have been aggressively trying to compete with each other. While the initial focus was to offer competitive tariff plans, it has now shifted to offer add-ons like Amazon Prime or Netflix subscriptions to seal the deal. Among the leading telecom players, Bharti Airtel, Vodafone and BSNL offer free subscription to these OTT platforms and the common denominator among them is Amazon Prime subscription.
Vodafone was the first to introduce the idea of offering a free subscription to Netflix and it was followed by Airtel, which started offering a one year free subscription to Amazon Prime. Recently, state-owned BSNL also joined the likes of these two players, to offer free Amazon Prime subscription worth Rs 999 to its postpaid and broadband customers. Here is a look at some of the prominent plans from these three players that offer free Amazon Prime subscription:
Bharti Airtel plans with Amazon Prime subscription
Bharti Airtel is offering one year free Amazon Prime membership to its Postpaid subscribers enrolled to myPlan Infinity postpaid plans. The free subscription is available only on plans priced at Rs 499 or above. The offer is not available with Rs 399 postpaid plan, which remains one of the most popular postpaid plans for the telecom operator.
In order to redeem this offer, Airtel users need to log in to their My Airtel app and then tap on the Amazon Prime Video icon in the featured section. Those availing this free subscription will need to have an Amazon account eligible for Prime membership.
