Sony LIV subscription plans: Price, Benefits

There are as many as four Sony Liv plans in India right now, each with its own set of content and benefits. There is a free membership as well that lets you enjoy select TV shows and movies, including The Kapil Sharma Show and TMKOC, on SonyLiv app and website for free without registration. That said, the free service is ad-supported and doesn’t include live sports, TV channels, and other titles that you get with Sony Liv Premium, Special+, Special, and WWE network plans.

1. Sony Liv Premium plan

Starting with the Sony Liv premium plan, it’s available with monthly, semi-annual, and annual memberships. These memberships come with similar benefits and catalogue of content, including Live sports, TV channels, Sony Liv original TV shows and movies such as Scam 1992, and Hollywood movies. However, the yearly and six-month memberships support two screens simultaneously, whereas the Sony Liv Premium monthly membership works on just one screen at a time. The plan also supports offline download, up to five profiles, and no ads (except in live TV channels). The SonyLiv Premium monthly membership is priced at Rs 299, whereas the yearly and six-month memberships cost Rs 699 and Rs 999 respectively.

2. Sony Liv Special+ plan

Sony Liv Special+ subscription plan loses a bunch of benefits you get with the premium account such as Live sports and original TV shows and movies, but you do get an ad-free access to Sony and SAB shows at TV time, Indian blockbuster films, and more. If you’re an entertainment nerd, then this Sony Liv plan is the way to go. The fee of this subscription plan is set at Rs 399 a year.

3. Sony Liv Special plan

Sony Liv Special plan includes all the same titles as the Sony Liv Special+ plan, but you’ll be served with ads. The Sony Liv Special plan costs Rs 199/ year.

4. Sony Liv WWE network

As the name would suggest, the plan is specially curated for WWE fans. Priced at Rs 399 a year, the Sony Liv WWE network plan comprises Live WWE events, NXT, and PPVs, unrestricted access to the entire WWE library, and exclusive WWE series, documentaries, and biographies.
