Vodafone Idea, now Vi, has introduced live TV channels on the web version of its Vi movies and TV service. Vi has updated its website which shows that it is now allowing users to watch the latest TV programmes from Live TV channels including Zee TV, DD National, Zee Tamil, Sun TV, Zee Kannada, Zee Telugu, Zee Bangla, Zee Marathi, Colors, and Big Magic. Vi users will get an OTP confirmation to check their subscriptions. Just last month, the telco partnered with Viacom 18 to give users access to OTT content from Voot Select. Vi now gives its users access to OTT content from Voot Select through Vi Movies & TV for free.

At this point, no other telco is giving a subscription to Voot content with prepaid plans. Vi's prepaid plans are priced at 699, 449, 299, 249, 1197, 599, 2399, 248, 399, 499, 555, 595, 795, 2595, and 819 are the prepaid plans that offer access to Vi Movies and TV classic access. All postpaid plans give full access to Vi Movies and TV.

Vi will also allow users to create a total of 25 profiles on the Vi mobile app. This feature allows Vi users to log in using 25 different Vi numbers in a single account, Telecom Talk which first noted the development reported. It does not matter if the users have prepaid numbers or postpaid numbers. The mobile number used for logging in Vi's application will serve as the primary profile, and the added numbers will be the secondary profile.

Yesterday, the telco announced that it will give unlimited high-speed nighttime data to users starting from 12 AM till 6 AM. This offer will be applicable on unlimited plans priced above Rs 249. The telco also gives its users benefits like the weekend rollover data benefits that allow users to accumulate and use up their unused data from weekdays over the weekend. Vi is also the only telco to give double data benefits on prepaid plans priced at Rs 299, Rs 499, and Rs 699.
