JioCinema, the video streaming platform of Reliance Industries, has rolled out new subscription plans to take on Netflix, Disney+Hotstar and Amazon Prime Video, apart from domestic rivals in the Indian OTT market.

Last year JioCinema had rolled out a ₹999 annual plan for ad-free Hollywood content and ad-supported local-language programming and sports.Kids’ and family entertainment including titles such as Motu Patlu, Shiva and Rudra, and content from local-language TV channels owned by Viacom18, such as Colors and Nickelodeon, will also become ad-free, and serials will be available to JioCinema members before their are aired on TV. More than 20 TV channels from the Viacom18 Network will be available for streaming, the company said.
