While Star Sports retains the domestic broadcasting rights to IPL in India, JioCinema has the digital one. It’s part of the new cycle of IPL media contracts renewed last year, which is to last till 2027.

For those wondering, it was previously Disney+ Hotstar presenting the IPL cricket matches (till 2022), with the streams being available via Jio TV for the Jio Prime customers at no additional cost. That changed in 2023 when Viacom18 announced it’d host the IPL for free on JioCinema with 12 regional feeds, including English, Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi, Tamil, and Telegu, and in a crystal-clear 4K resolution.

JioCinema is supported across a wide range of devices, including streaming media players such as the Amazon Firestick. You can expect to catch all IPL 2024 matches on the big screen just by logging in with your mobile number*, with access to Ultra HD streaming and the multi-cam feature the service introduced last year.

*Anyone can log into JioCinema regardless of their mobile carrier. Whether you’re with Jio, Airtel, or Vi – it doesn’t make a difference. Just a heads up for those planning to stream over mobile data, keep an eye out for any special recharge promotions from your network. And for the rest on unmetered fibre connections, lucky you.
