IPL 2023 will be streamed live for free on JioCinema, which is owned by Reliance. Fans of cricket can be happy because they are about to see something that has never happened before. Some reports say that Jio, which is owned by Reliance Industries, will stream the 16th season of the Indian Premier League for free.
This is sure to get a lot of attention since cricket is the most popular sport in India and the IPL is the most-watched cricket league in India and around the world.
Streaming the FIFA World Cup 2022 was a big hit.
- Jio’s OTT platform, Jio Cinema, recently showed the Fifa World Cup 2022 for free. Besides that, the games were also shown live on their brand-new channel Sports 18 in the Jio Tv app.
- This was a huge success, as over 32 million unique visitors went to Jio Cinema and Sports 18 to watch the FIFA World Cup games. They plan to do the same thing again in the 16th edition of the IPL.

Free streaming of the IPL will change the game.
- Reports say that Jio will live stream the IPL in 2023 in 11 languages. This includes English, Hindi, and other languages from around the world. Every year, more and more people watch the Indian Premier League. Over-the-top (OTT) platforms have grown over the last 3–4 years and have been a great value for money.
- This is also likely to make more people watch the IPL 2023 on digital platforms, since it will be free to stream the games once the broadcasters get the rights to digital streaming. Also, customers of Reliance Jio will benefit the most because they won’t have to pay extra to stream live cricket games, which they couldn’t do with Disney+ Hotstar.

The task will be hard for Jio.
- IPL has a huge amount of traffic, so JioCinema needs to be ready for the huge amount of traffic during IPL matches. It had a lot of trouble streaming the FIFA World Cup 2022. At the start of the event, many users reported problems with the OTT platform. The problems were solved in the end, but they know that the IPL will be a whole different ball game.
- Compared to the World Cup, it needs a lot more viewers on average, and JioCinema has a lot of work to do to make sure the games go smoothly.
- They will be very ready for the IPL in 2023 because of the challenges they face. To remind you, Reliance Jio paid Rs 23,578 crore for the digital rights to the IPL for the next five years (2023-2027). Star India paid 48,390 crores for the TV rights.
