  • Airtel Xstream Lite plan has been announced
  • Airtel Xstream Lite downgrades Xstream Premium users
  • Airtel Xstream Lite brings access to only 11 OTT apps

Airtel offers a wide range of apps with its plans for free, meaning it doesn’t cost you anything extra to access apps like SonyLIV.

Airtel XStream Lite: What is it?

The upcoming Airtel Xstream Lite plan is a trimmed-down version of its Xstream Premium Plan which offers access to over 15 OTT platforms. These platforms include SonyLIV, Eros Now, ShemarooME, Hoichoi, Ultra, LionsgatePlay, Epicon, ManoramaMax, Dollywood Play, Divo, Klikk, Namaflix, HungamaPlay, Docubay, SocialSwag, ShortsTV, Chaupal, Kanccha Lannka and Raj Digital TV.

However, the new Lite plan will offer access to just 11 OTT platforms. Streaming services such as SonyLIV, Dollywood Play, etc will no longer be accessible for its broadband users for free. The new Airtel XStream Lite plan will consist of the following OTT platforms:

  • Eros Now
  • Lionsgate Play

Airtel XStream Lite: Which users are affected?

As reported by TelecomTalk, Airtel Xstream Fiber customers on the Rs 499 and Rs 799 plans (non-Black) and Rs 998 and Rs 1098 (Airtel Black users) will be shifted from Xstream Premium to Xstream Lite plan. While this would be a bad news for new users, those who claimed access from the Airtel Thanks or will claim access before March 31, 2023 won’t be a part of the change. In other words, these users will not be downgraded to the Lite plan.

Broadband users who plan to claim Xstream service from April 1 will only be able to claim the Xstream Lite plan. The validity of its Lite plan will be one year, similar to the Xstream Premium plan. The Lite plan will not be charged for. Airtel will continue to offer its Xstream Premium plan for other Xstream FIber customers who subscribe to plans with higher prices than Rs 1,098.
