Other prepaid users, on the other hand, can also get this pass for Rs 251 which is called ‘Cricket Season Pack.'
“This is the first of its kind cricket pack launched by a network that is made for video and can enable millions of people to watch what they love, where they wish,” the company said. Along with the recharge, Jio has also launched a mobile game called ‘Jio Cricket Play Along’, which will be available in 11 Indian languages.

“Spanning 7 weeks and 60 matches, Jio will redefine the second-screen experience through its real-time interaction during the match time. Jio aims to bring people together to celebrate the most loved sport in the country by turning spectators into participants, getting India closer to Cricket, their favourite teams and players by providing an engaging experience for cricket fans in India,” Jio said.
Besides, the company has also announced a new TV show dubbed Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan Live, featuring comedian Sunil Grover and sports anchor, Samir Kochhar.
“This is going to be one of my most refreshing characters. I get to collaborate with some of the finest artists like Samir, Shilpa, Kapil and Viru paji to make India Laugh. You will see me as Professor LBW (Lallu Balle Waala) in the show, who is a self-proclaimed cricket expert. Jio is known for changing the game and this time, it’s Cricket. India has never seen Cricket through the lens of humour before, and I am looking forward to batting on this pitch,” Sunil Grover said.
“The show premieres exclusively on MyJio app, available free to both Jio and non-Jio subscribers, on April 7, 2018, with original LIVE episodes, releasing every Friday, Saturday and Sunday,” the statement said.
