Airtel's video streaming app Airtel TV will offer free, unlimited access to the upcoming Vivo IPL 2018 and Asia Cup 2018 via the Hotstar app. For this, Airtel is rolling out an updated Airtel TV app with a dedicated cricket section for easy access to curated content like live match action, scores and match highlights. IPL 2018 will be held from April 7-May 27.
Keep track of teams, scores, matches on Airtel TV
Airtel TV will allow users to follow their favorite teams, keep up with leaderboards and upcoming schedule, and be abreast with the latest updates of the ongoing matches. The new version of the Airtel TV app will also feature interactive games and contests.
Get on the latest updated version of Airtel TV app
To be on board with the offer, users will have to install the latest updated version of the Airtel TV app on both Android and iOS.
