Reliance Industries-backed Viacom18 Media will stream the FIFA World Cup tournament on its Jio Cinema app for free. RIL's broadcasting and digital media company Viacom18 clinched the deal to stream FIFA matches in India last year.
The FIFA World Cup tournament will start on November 18 in Qatar.
“The digital destination for the Football World Cup, which starts in November is going to be Jio Cinema. While Jio Cinema will post all other sporting properties that Viacom18 has such as NBA, the athletics Diamond League and ATP Tennis, among others, Fifa will be available to all telecom players including Jio, Vodafone, Airtel and their subscribers, across devices like iOS, Android and connected TVs," said Viacom18's sports CEO Anil Jayaraj said,
