Airtel has now bundled a one-year Amazon Prime subscription free with several of its postpaid plans.

It bundles Netflix for 2 months with a Rs 999 plan, and for a year with a Rs 2,999 postpaid plan. However, Vodafone's Rs 2999 with a Netflix subscription still costs more than getting a Jio SIM card and paying for Netflix.

The service is free to Jio…
