Vi (Vodafone Idea) has partnered with Viacom 18 to offer premium Voot Select content on its digital platform - Vi Movies and TV app. Voot Select is a premium paid service that enables subscribers to watch select episodes before they are aired on TV channels and also offers access to premium original content like Asur, The Gone Game, and more. Separately, Vi is also offering 50GB of additional data with its year-long Rs. 2,595 prepaid plan to mobile app users.
Starting with Voot Select, the Vi Movies and TV website and app now offer content from the Voot Select catalogue. Download the Vi Movies and TV app from Google Play store or App Store to access Voot Select content. Users will have to login using the OTP method to access the premium content offering. Separately users can also head to the Vi app > go to the Vi Movies and TV section to access Voot Select content for free (after logging in).
Voot Select offers access to international content, originals, movies, network shows and 54 linear channels. It brings originals like The Gone Game, Crackdown, Asur, Illegal, and The Raikar Case. Voot is also home to premium Hindi shows of Colors and MTV like Bigg Boss, Roadies, Splitsvilla, and Khatron Ke Khiladi. Apart from this, Voot Select streams international shows like Shark Tank, Top Gear, The Office, Tin Star, Nancy Drew, and Pink Collar Crimes.
Apart from this strategic partnership with Voot Select, Vi has also introduced a 50GB additional data benefit on its year-long Rs. 2,595 prepaid plan. This development was first spotted by Telecom Talk, but we can see the offer in the mobile app as well. This additional data benefit is only offered to mobile app users, and subscribers who recharge using the website will not see this benefit. This app-only benefit is showing up in all circles where the plan is active.
The Rs. 2,595 prepaid plan has a banner that reads ‘50GB extra'. This means Vi subscribers get additional 50GB data alongside the data benefit that already comes with the prepaid plan. The 50GB data can be used anytime during the validity. The plan lasts for 365 days, offers 2GB daily data, unlimited calls, 100 SMS messages per day, and one year of ZEE5 Premium subscription.
