Reliance Jio Prime Members, Reliance Jio, Reliance Jio Prime Membership
Mukesh Ambani led Telecom giant Reliance Jio stated that Reliance Jio Prime members will get one year of complimentary benefits for free, as Reliance Jio Prime Membership is going to expire on march 31st 2018, All Jio Prime members who have subscribed to the exclusive membership benefits till March 31, 2018 will get another year of complimentary prime benefits at no additional fee.
For new Jio users, the prime membership continues to be offered at an annual membership fees of Rs 99 as one year free membership is for existing Reliance Jio Prime Members only.
Over the last one year, the prime membership has offered Jio customers complimentary access to content bouquet that includes Live TV channels, movies, videos, and songs, as also value on overall tariffs.
The existing Jio prime members – who join on or before March 31, 2018 – will be required to download MyJio app and register their interest in getting complimentary membership for the next 12 months to continue enjoying the benefits.
“The continued availability of the Jio Prime membership to new subscribers reiterates Jio’s commitment to deliver a differentiated digital life experience to Indians…,” the statement added.
Reliance Jio’s disruptive entry into the Indian telecom market in 2016, had unleashed a no-holds-barred tariff war that forced incumbent operators to slash data and voice rates. The resultant hyper-competition, however, bruised the telecom industry, eroding revenues and profitability of operators and taking sectoral debts to nearly unsustainable levels.
To get these benefits, users can download MyJio app > express your interest in the complimentary offer and that’s about it, the renewal process is not automatic, and you need to apply to get the Jio Prime extended service for one more year. But considering the network has 175 million users, and most of the subscribers would likely have the Prime membership, it is possible some customers may not see the message to extend the subscription. If that’s the case with you too, there’s one thing you can do.
You are probably not seeing the message to extend Prime as you are not an active Jio user despite purchasing the Rs. 99 subscription. If you don’t see the banner asking you to get service for another year, force quit the app and stream videos for 15 minutes or so using – and this is important – Jio 4G data of the number whose membership you are trying to review. Once you’ve done that, start the MyJio app once again, and login using the same number — you should now be able to see the banner message prompting you to apply for Jio Prime membership renewal.
Once you see the message, you just need to follow the standard renewal process. Tap on the Get Now button in the banner, and you will see a message saying the operator is extending the subscription for one full year, and the numbers registered to you below it. Simply select the number whose Prime subscription you want to extend from the list, and hit Proceed. Your subscription will get renewed in a couple of hours.
