Airtel has introduced the web version of its Airtel TV app, bringing live TV and a host of premium content to the desktop.
Until now, the service was available only on Android and iOS platforms as an app. However, with web support now going live, subscribers can access Airtel's content library on any device using a Web browser.
Here's how to get started.
How to use Airtel TV web service
If you have an Airtel connection (Prepaid/Postpaid/Broadband/DTH), you can now access Airtel TV on the web as well.
To get started, you will have to visit the Airtel Xstream website and sign in using your mobile number (OTP verification required).
Airtel will then determine the type of your subscription-Premium, Regular or Lite-and then provide the content available for your subscription plan.
Here's a look at the content available on Airtel TV
Airtel TV offers more than 350 live TV channels across categories like infotainment, news, entertainment, music, sports, movies and so on.
The service supports multiple languages like English, Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi and others.
Alongside live TV, Airtel TV also offers content from some popular streaming platforms such as Hooq, ZEE5, ALTBalaji, Eros Now, YouTube and others.
Here's what you get with Airtel TV Premium
Airtel TV Premium subscription offers access to all the latest TV shows, movies, videos, Live TV and catch up TV. This subscription is available for all prepaid customers who recharge for Rs. 199 or more, as well as for all postpaid, DTH, and broadband customers.
Airtel also offers Regular and Lite subscriptions
If you recharge your prepaid connection for Rs. 99+ but less than Rs. 199, you will get access to regular Airtel TV which offers some TV shows, movies, Live TV and catch up TV but not the premium content from providers like Hooq.
Lastly, if you recharge for Rs. 99, you can access Airtel TV Lite which provides some Live TV channels.
