Jio cinema

Pros & Cons:


-CONCEPT: The main concept of the JioCinema OTT app is to entertain the subscribers, so they provide us new movies to watch, their concept very genuine which help the subscribers a lot, and the main concept I liked is that all movies are separated by the base of language.

- USER FRIENDLY: There is no difficulty to use this JioCinema, very simple to watch new cinemas, so many people like to watch this only, just we have to select a movie.

SERVICE & SUPPORT: The service & support given by JioCinema OTT app is very nice, in JioCinema there is no need to use of SERVICE of JioCinema but, at the first time when we are going to subscribe JioCinema, they will send us OTP as soon as possible, this will be done as soon as possible.



  • The user interface could have been better. 

  • On fire tv stick due to lack of video quality adjustment setting this OTT app consumes a high amount of data.

  • Buffers to maintain the highest quality

Now let's compare both the OTT App's and see which one is better to use.



Plan name 

Monthly Subscription Cost with number of screens 

Annual Subscription cost with a number of Screens

Disney+ Hotstar premium



Disney+ Hotstar VIP



Jio Cinema:

The platform is exclusive to Jio users only, with no additional charges.

In our general overview, we would say that Hotstar OTT app content varies by region and may change over time and there are so many different categories to look through, and then shows and movies within those categories to continue scrolling into. While Jio cinema has extended its services into many other areas, including offering application free streaming movies.
