  Reliance Jio Rs 149 revised prepaid plan: Comparison with Airtel and Vodafone plans
Posted by: nairrk - 11-11-2019, 12:27 PM - Forum: Cellular Services - No Replies

[Image: Jio-vs_airtel-vs_vodafone.jpg?w=759&h=422&imflag=true]

Reliance Jio has announced revision for its Rs 149 plan, which now comes with complimentary IUC minutes or calling to non-Jio numbers. Jio had earlier announced that it would start charging customers for calling to non-Jio numbers because of the high IUC or Interconnect usage charges, it was being forced to pay given its customers were making maximum calling to outside network. IUC rates in India currently stand at 6 paise per minute.

The Rs 149 plan will now come with 300 non-Jio calling minutes. But the validity of the plan has been reduced as well to 24 days, instead of the standard 28 days one sees on prepaid plans. Reliance Jio offers its customers unlimited Jio to Jio calls, 300 minutes of Jio to non-Jio calls, 1.5GB of daily 4G data and 100 daily SMS under the Rs 149 plan. This also includes a complimentary subscription to Jio’s premium apps. We compare it with other plans from Airtel and Vodafone, which are in a similar price range.

Airtel Rs 129, Rs 169 prepaid recharge plan
Airtel has a Rs 129 plan available in Delhi NCR with a validity of 28 days. It comes with 2GB data in total. Airtel’s plan has unlimited calls and there are no separate IUC calls. It also comes with 300 Local + STD SMS for customers. Other benefits include access to the Airtel Xstream App, which also has live TV channels and movies, and TV shows. The prepaid plan also brings access to Wynk Music with free music downloads.

Airtel also has a Rs 169 plan with a better deal of 1GB data per day. Once again all calls are unlimited and there is no IUC charge as such. The validity is longer at 28 days, but SMS is limited to 100 per day. The plan also includes benefits such as access to Airtel Xstream app and Wynk music. Compared to Jio’s Rs 149 plan, the Rs 169 plan has four days of extra validity, but the data is limited to 1GB per day, while Jio is offering 1.5 daily data.

Vodafone Rs 129, Rs 139, 149 and Rs 169 prepaid plans
Vodafone has a lot of plans in a similar price range of under Rs 170, though not all the plans show in all the circles. The Vodafone Rs 129 plan has a validity of 28 days and comes with unlimited local, STD and roaming calls along with 300 SMS within India. It also comes with 2GB 4G/3G.

Vodafone’s Rs 139 plan has a benefit of 3GB data in total for 28 days with unlimited local, STD and roaming calls. It also includes 300 SMS in India. The Vodafone Rs 149 plan was visible for Delhi/NCR circle and it comes with unlimited local, STD and roaming calls and 1GB of data per day along with 100 SMS per day. But the validity is 21 days and it also includes access to the Vodafone PLAY App which has free live tv and movies.

Vodafone’s Rs 169 plan has 1GB data per day with unlimited local, STD and roaming calls and 100 SMS per day. The validity is longer at 28 days. This also includes access to the Vodafone PLAY app.

  History TV18, FYI TV18 unveil local series ‘Ride to Conquer’
Posted by: nairrk - 11-08-2019, 06:41 PM - Forum: Television News - No Replies

[Image: Ride-to-Conquer.jpg]

MUMBAI: AETN18-owned HistoryTV18 and FYI TV18 will air ‘Ride to Conquer’, a four-part series produced by 24 Frames Films, that features four celebrities (Hindi Rock icon Palash Sen, Chef Kunal Kapur, Celebrity fashion designer, Kanika Goyal & wildlife photographer Sudhir Shivaram), on four journeys, riding across India, through differing terrains and landscapes in search of new and inspiring experiences. It will air Saturday at pm on HistoryTV18 and Sunday, at 8 pm on FYI TV18.

‘Ride to Conquer’ is about meeting new people, rediscovering rich traditions, savouring local flavours and exploring off-beat spaces. Each celebrity, an artist is his or her own right, seeks inspiration to create something fresh, something original. Unlike other travel shows, Ride to Conquer is about conquering the unfamiliar, stepping out of comfort zones and challenging the conventional, on a very short deadline! It affords viewers a never before inside look, at how inspiration finds its way into creation. It introduces audiences to the creative process, leading to the next great original.

AETN 18 president content, communication Arun Thapar said, “We are proud to present the limited series on our flagship factual entertainment channel HistoryTV18 and India’s No1 Lifestyle Channel FYI TV18. We continue to raise the bar with differentiated and innovative original content, breaking new ground and delivering immersive experiences for our discerning audience.”

Hindi rock star Palash Sen rides into the interiors of Punjab and gets energised by the incredible talent of Sufi singer Shaukat Ali. His meeting with instrument maker and musician Pritam Singh adds another dimension to the trip. Later he hooks up with local folk star Nazar Pandher and his son Saleem Khan to create a rocking new original song exclusively for the show.

Chef Kunal Kapur rides into Jodhpur and beyond, into the Rajasthan countryside to explore rural cooking techniques and flavours. He tastes traditional Rajasthani dishes that never make it to restaurant menus and learns how vegetables are grown in the arid desert. All, to create an unforgettable meal, with his own fine touch.

Fashion designer, Kanika Goyal drives through Karnataka, making her way to Coorg. On the journey, she takes in the verdant landscape, experiences a coffee estate, breaks bread with a Kodava family and attends a local wedding. All the time seeking inspiration for a brand new design. Back in her Delhi studio, her inspiration finds expression into a fabulous new garment that will star in her fall-winter collection.

And wildlife photographer Sudhir Shivaram heads into the wilderness of Valparai, teaming up with another photographer and a PhD student, who is studying the enigmatic Lion Tailed Macaque. Their quest – the perfect shot of the elusive Macaques, against the backdrop of the breath–taking the Western Ghats.

Producer Arjun Pandey who is 24 Frames director said, “As always it’s a great pleasure working with the team at History TV18 and Arun Thapar, President Content and Communications. We get to work on challenging projects and push the boundaries of storytelling. For me the idea is to inspire people to explore India, its beauty and diversity.”

Creative Head Chandramouli Basu said, “Unlike most shows that get repetitive because of a predictable format, Ride to Conquer takes viewers into a different creative world each time, in a different place. It was very exciting to create a show with a distinctive style, where each episode gives viewers a different unmissable experience.”

Director Radhika Chandrashekar said, “The team experience on the road, mirrored that of our anchors. We too experienced different areas of our country through different lenses – music, food, fashion and wildlife. Hope that magic comes through in the episodes.”

This is a very special story for all Indians and needs to be told to young India. Gandhiji has motivated generations of people across the world and with ‘Yugpurush’ we are bringing the story of his journey from being a young barrister to Mahatma.”

The Play is a heart-touching portrayal of the untold and profound relationship between Mahatma Gandhiji and his spiritual mentor Shrimad Rajchandraji. This theatrical tribute received an astounding response, as it was performed in 312 cities across the world, completing 1062 shows in seven languages in a short span of 1 year, running to full houses and standing ovations. The play won several prestigious awards including the Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award 2017 for ‘Best Drama’, the 16th Annual Transmedia Screen and Stage Awards and two distinct entries in the Limca Book of Records.

‘Yugpurush’ the play was also the first Indian event to be staged at the prestigious Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, LA where the world-famous Oscars Awards Ceremony are held.

Shrimad Rajchandra Mission Dharampur president Abhay Jasani said “We are fortunate to partner with one of the leading entertainment networks such as Viacom18, that defines entertainment by touching the lives of people through its programmes. The National premier of ‘Yugpurush’ is one such initiative by Viacom18 that will truly impact the viewers positively.”

D2h subscriber with deactivated account can avail 30 extra days for free, new long-term recharges

Dish TV’s satellite home television service company D2h has come up with a new ‘Loyalty ki Royalty’ offer for deactive subscribers. It is offering up to 30 days of extra service on six months and 12 months of long-term recharges. That said, the offer is valid for active subscribers as well. The DTH company has constantly offered new long-term recharge options to all its subscribers, and this is another addition to the list.

Earlier, D2h used to provide up to 55 days of extra service on a long-term recharge. But this new offer called the ‘Loyalty ki Royalty’ is for shorter period of time as well, reports TelecomTalk. As part of the offer, even the deactive accounts will get up to 30 days of extra service on 12 months of advance recharge. The offer is valid for subscribers who did not perform a recharge to their account over the last 30 days.

The ‘Loyalty ki Royalty’ offer provides seven days of free service on recharging the same channel pack for three months. But for the six months and 12 months recharges, D2h is offering 15 days and 30 days of extra service, respectively. The company also says the new offers are applicable for the active subscribers as well.

Earlier last month, Dish TV introduced a special Amazon Alexa skill for its D2h platform as well. The DTH operator with this new Amazon Alexa skill allows users to check their account balance, discover content and more. Users can simply trigger these actions through Alexa voice assistant.

People who are unaware, Dish TV already offers similar Alexa voice assistant features for their own platform users. The similar features will now be available for the d2h users, and they will be able to check for content, account balance and other queries through Amazon Alexa.
