    1. Kashi Hegde, the VIP was priced at 365 and now is 399.
      Premium was 999 and will be 1,499. But, for what they’re offering, we feel it is a steal deal.

    1. We think it’s absolutely worth. Just for the comparison, in the US the Disney+ is priced at $69.99/year and we’re getting it for just around $19.90(INR 1,499).
