JioCinema Set to Stream the Gems of HBO and Warner Bros in India

Jio Cinema and Warner Bros deal

Recently, Ambani’s JioCinema has risen to prominence as the largest platform for live broadcasts since they made it available for free (with ads). Indian sports fans now have access to the IPL 2023 in unprecedented quality and range of features after being able to experience the 2022 FIFA World Cup last year. Now that JioCinema has made a game-changing decision, Indian audiences will be in for a real treat again as it has now collaborated with Warner Bros. Continue reading to learn more.

JioCinema Partners with HBO and Warner Bros

Viacom 18-Jio Cinema India has entered at the right moment to sign a multi-year agreement with Warner Bros to bring their content back to us. This is not just a huge win for team Ambani and also for us as we get to see our favorite shows returning and lots of new original shows like the new Harry Potter series, The Idol, and more available to us on day one same as other countries.

For those who don’t know, it was recently when HBO and Warner Bros content made its exit from Disney+ Hostar, one of the biggest streaming platforms in India. This was because its deal with HBO came to an end. While the Indian audience was left disappointed, the JioCinema-HBO deal is good news. Now, fans would be able to enjoy shows like The Last of Us, House of the Dragon, Peacemaker, and more.

JioCinema will now be the new home of the HBO Originals, Max Original, and Warner Bros content starting this May. We also know about the shows that will be available on JioCinema. Some of the popular streaming content confirmed are as follows:

SucessionThe SympathizerBig Little LiesThe Flight Attendant
The White LotusThe RegimeVeep Dune: The Sisterhood
EuphoriaChernobylThe Batman Spinoff: The Penguin
Perry MasonSex & the CityDuster

As of now, we don’t know anything about the subscription plans. It was rumored very recently that JioCinema is becoming a paid subscription platform and with this new deal, we can expect that. It is likely to be renamed JioVoot (after a collab with online streaming service Voot) and have a base plan priced at Rs 99 for three months.

This isn’t concrete so we will have to wait for more details to arrive. That said, it’s a huge relief for us as we can finally enjoy HBO & Warner Bros content again. As the latest season of Succession is currently airing, we can now easily catch them up on the JioCinema streaming platform. Do you think this is a great move for the Indian fans? Let us know in the comments below.

  • It’s interesting. I think this will be a major blow for not only Hotstar, Zee5, etc, I think this will affect Prime Video and Netflix, too, even if ever so slightly. The thing is, quite a part of the population just wants recreation and if they get it at much cheaper rates, there is nothing more desirable for them. If Jio continues to attract shows and movies from other platforms, especially exclusives, it will be a game changer. Of course, I hope there is a catch – Jio users get discounts! The “free” JioCinema that’s always included in the recharge packs, I hope this continues to reflect! I am leaving a comment, but do you guys reply back?

    PS: I wish Anime were included as one of them, too, though. Haven’t given up hope, though! I’d rather pay Jio than Crunchyroll!
