Top Free IPL Streaming Apps For Smartphones
The 11th edition of Indian Premier League is just around the corner. There will be a grand inaugural ceremony on the 7th of April. This season, we have 8 teams battling for a single trophy. If you are an IPL enthusiast, then here are the top three free IPL streaming apps available for Android and iOS. However, some of these apps are carrier specific and work only with a certain telecom operator.
Hotstar is our first pick of the lot. In fact, Hotstar has been offering free streaming for different Star-only cricket tournaments since its inception. With Hotstar, the user will be able to enjoy other regional content, cinemas and Hotstar exclusive titles. However, there will be a few seconds of delay in the streaming and one can overcome that by subscribing as a paid member. Do note that Hotstar offers free one month of premium for free of cost.
Reliance Jio Network now has 100 million subscribers and the company is offering free IPL streaming for the entire customer base. One has to download the JioTV application on iOS or Android device. If the user is connected via Jio network, the JioTV logins automatically using My Jio credentials. Jio TV offers free IPL streaming not only in English and Hind but, also other regional languages including Kannada, Telugu, and Tamil. The company has also announced new Jio Cricket Season packs for Rs 251, which comes with 102 GB 4G data for 51 days (2GB/day).
Airtel TV is the latest addition to the free IPL streaming services. Download the Airtel TV app and register using your Airtel number. If you are a first time Airtel TV user, then the company is offering free 1GB 4G data for the first 3 days. Along with the IPL season 11, one can also follow the ongoing Common Wealth Games 2018. Like Jio TV, this app is limited to Airtel subscribers and works well for both prepaid and postpaid users.
