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:
HBO’s Latest HBO Originals HBO Populars Max Originals Warner Bros TV Series House of the Dragon The Idol True Detective Peacemaker Gotham Knights The Last of Us White House Plumbers Game of Thrones And Just Like That East New York Sucession The Sympathizer Big Little Lies The Flight Attendant The White Lotus The Regime Veep Dune: The Sisterhood Euphoria Chernobyl The Batman Spinoff: The Penguin Perry Mason Sex & the City Duster
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?
