Airtel Digital TV subscribers seem to be getting one year of Xstream Premium subscription for free. The telco is reportedly rolling out the benefit for select subscribers at the moment. As per a report by DreamDTH and a number of tweets, the Digital TV subscribers are getting text messages from Airtel about the free subscription. The message reads, “Congratulations! Airtel Xstream Premium Plan offer for 365 has been successfully activated. Enjoy access to 10000+ movies, TV shows and more on Airtel Xstream Smart Stick.” Interestingly, some non-Xstream box and Smart Stick users are also getting similar benefits.

It’s not clear whether this free benefit of Airtel Xstream Premium is limited to users with Airtel Xtream Smart Stick or regular DTH customers as well. We’ll update the copy once there is more clarity. That said, the subscription will be valid only for a year. The Airtel Xstream Premium, to recall, is a video streaming service from Airtel. The platform is available for all Airtel mobile customers for free. In addition to Live TV, movies, and TV shows, the Airtel Xstream app also includes exclusive content from ZEE5, HOOQ, and Eros Now.
In related news, Airtel recently announced that it’ll offer 1000GB additional data to new Xstream Fiber Home Broadband service customers. The scheme is valid for a limited period on all Airtel Xstream Fiber plans, except for unlimited data as well as prepaid broadband plans. The plans start at Rs 799 per month and come with Airtel Thanks benefits, such as a 12-month Amazon Prime membership and Airtel Xstream content plus Wynk Music. The 1,000GB additional data benefit will be valid for the six-month period, after which the remaining data will automatically lapse.
Airtel also refreshed its prepaid packs portfolio for its mobile customers with a handful of recharges that come with Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription for free. The new recharge comes with Rs 448, Rs 449, Rs 599, and Rs 2,599 denominations and up to one-year validity.
