The competition in the telecom sector has been hotting up for a while now and the biggest beneficiaries of it have been the end users, what with slashed down prices, enticing offers and endless freebies up for grab. The state-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has also joined the fray with lucrative offers to bait customers. Following the lead of key market players Airtel and Vodafone, BSNL is also offering one-year free Amazon Prime subscription to its premium postpaid plans users.
The offer is available for BSNL users with postpaid plans of Rs 399 or above and broadband landline plans of Rs 745 or above, who can avail the Amazon Prime subscription worth Rs 999 for a year at no additional cost.
An Amazon Prime membership not only gives access to the Prime Video streaming service that offers an interesting mix of shows, movies and Original series but also makes you eligible for unlimited fast and free delivery services on any Amazon purchases. In addition to this, you also get to stream music via Amazon Prime Music completely ad-free and access hundred of e-books on Prime Reading.
Speaking of the collaboration, Director and Head, Business of Amazon Prime Video India, Gaurav Gandhi, said, “Prime Video has received an overwhelming response from customers across the length and breadth of the country. We are thrilled that our association with BSNL will expand the reach of Prime Video to an even larger base of customers who can now enjoy premium content on a screen of their choice – be it their mobile device or the television in their living room.”
Chairman and Managing Director of BSNL, Anupam Shrivastava, was quoted by The Economic Times as saying, “We understand the customer shift towards a highly networked digital ecosystem. Customers today demand freedom and flexibility in shopping and streaming content online. Our collaboration with Amazon India is our commitment to stay ahead of times providing the best to our customers.”
