Free Movies for JioFiber Customers: Now, Watch movies at your home the same day they released

Free Movies for JioFiber Customers: Mukesh Ambani on Monday unveiled the plans for his fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband service, JioFiber, wrapped with a host of goodies like lifetime-free voice calls and plans that offer free high-end TV sets and set-top boxes. He shared the ideas at the 42nd annual general meeting of Reliance Industries. He has bundled JioFiber with subscriptions to leading premium video streaming services and intends to introduce a disruptive concept for watching new movies.

“Premium JioFiber customers will be able to watch movies in their living rooms the same day these movies are released in theatres,” he announced. 

The commercial launch of the service is set for September 5 and the monthly plans start from Rs 700 and go up to Rs 10,000. While JioFiber has shown a promising proposition, experts feel it will not disrupt the media industry the way Jio had disrupted the telecom sector.

Jio Fiber is currently not commercially available and is only live on a preview basis in major cities like Mumbai, Delhi-NCR, Ahmedabad, Jamnagar, Surat, and Vadodara, etc. As per Jio, the telecom operator had received over 15 million registrations from 1,600 towns during the beta phase and now, the company claims that it will be reaching out to 20 million residents within these towns commercially in the next 12 months. 

Free Movies for JioFiber Customers: Now, Watch movies at your home the same day they released

First-day-first-show movie release seems too ambitious as theatres demand an eight-week exclusive window. We will have to see how Jio will circumvent this issue. So, sentimentally, the announcement is negative for PVR and Inox Leisure, but we are not worried yet,” Dokania said. “Pricing (of JioFiber) is attractive but not jaw-dropping and hence, all other broadband players will not have to shut shop tomorrow,” said Rohit Dokania, senior vice-president for research at IDFC Securities.

He, however, added that one has to wait and see what is being offered in the Rs 700 plan.

At the meeting, Reliance Jio also announced that the landline service with Jio Fiber will be offered to customers with free voice calling benefits for life. This could phone service would be bundled with all plans, starting with the most basic Jio Fiber plan that starts at 100MBPS speed and priced at Rs 700. 

The company has also announced Free Movies for JioFiber customers. Premium JioFiber Customers can watch new movies at home the same day they are released in theaters. This service will be launched in the …

WhatsApp Fingerprint Activation: How to activate WhatsApp’s ‘fingerprint authentication’ feature

WhatsApp Fingerprint Activation: WhatsApp has rolled out a new feature for its Android beta users. According to a report, the Facebook-owned messaging app has finally released the Fingerprint Lock feature in the latest Beta version of the Android app. The feature has reached the beta users after it was spotted as a hidden feature few weeks back. It is being reported that there are many other features along with this that WhatsApp is working on currently.

However, it’s important to note that WhatsApp has already released this update for its iOS beta users and launch for all iPhone users may be under progress.This new feature of Whatsapp Fingerprint Activation not only adds an extra layer of security for the users of the world’s most popular messaging app but will also make the popular third party locking apps redundant. This new development comes six months after biometric authentication was introduced in the WhatsApp iOS app.

The feature is available for all Android beta users who are currently using version 2.19.221 of the app.

It further add that beta users can double-check the version by clicking App info which can be found under “Help” which will be available in the settings icon. Android users who are not using this version of the app will have to upgrade their app by going to the Google Play Store. But if you still are unable to find the feature then it is suggested that you delete your app and reinstall it. After that, you will have to go to the “Privacy” section where you will see the “Account” option and then you will be able to activate the feature.

You can then select how often you would like to authenticate your identity to use the app. The available choices are to “automatically lock” you out of WhatsApp “Immediately”, “after 1 minute” or “after 30 minutes” of inactivity. For instance, if you chose the first option, the app will ask for your fingerprint every time you open it. While this is ideal if you are big on privacy, it could get annoying for those who use it frequently. However, you can still answer WhatsApp calls without this authentication.

Once users activate the fingerprint feature then they will have to authenticate it by putting their finger on the scanner. Another important feature about this upgrade is that it will users will be able to hide the text …
