Vodafone Sports details
This service, claims to be one-of-a-kind service and maybe it is something to have on the go. But why should you go for this instead of selecting from a multitude of apps that can do the same? Well, it seems Vodafone has answered this question by providing users with packs.

This plan is designed for those people who don’t generally have a fad for sports but become sports fans at alternate intervals – you can watch a match for Rs.10 / Rs.20, download a video clip for Rs. 3/ Rs. 5, and get some cricket wallpapers for Rs. 3.

This plan is targeted at those users who like to catch up on a series such as IPL. A series is priced Rs. 49/ Rs. 99/ Rs. 150, while archived video clips are available for Rs. 30/ Rs. 50.
How to activate it?
You can either visit live.vodafone.in/sports or message <SPORTS> to 111 on your Vodafone smartphone.
But these are not the only charges, you will have pay Rs. 5 a day and Rs. 150 a month which crushes the whole deal.
Wouldn’t some apps be a better idea? On the upside, the service is available for both smartphones and feature phones and might be more useful for feature phone users, who tend to not get access to apps made for this purpose only.
