Ever since Reliance Jio has launched alluring mobile data offers, it has made other telecom operators to keep themselves active and made them come up with the new idea to attract more customers. Allied to that Bharti Airtel has come forth with a new proposal called “Airtel Xstream” contradictory to Reliance JioCinema web portal. Airtel has now launched a web version of the Airtel TV app which will allow users to stream videos and movies on other devices as well such as Laptops, Desktops, Smart TVs etc.
The spokesperson of Bharati Airtel, Sunil Bharti Mittal says he wanted his company to stand out of the competitor list and bring some revolution in the telecom industry. These days content offerings have remained the same in almost every company and in this stiff competition Bharti Airtel wants to stand unique and thus to introduce Airtel TV app. And now it’s open on the web for other device users as well.
What is Airtel Xstream?
Airtel Xstream is the web version of Airtel TV Service. Now you can watch favourite Movies, Live TV Channels, Web Series, Videos online on PC, Laptop and other devices.
Bharti Airtel was expecting the hype with the introduction of Airtel TV app and expecting customer redirection from Jio and other apps. Airtel subscribers are given access with Airtel TV’s range of movies, shows and documentaries for free. With its web version, you can watch 100+ live TV channels as well as content from different platforms like Alt Balaji, ZEE5, Eros Now, HOOQ, and Hungama on the web.
Earlier the service was accessible only on small screens; conceivably to stream the content on bigger screen was possible through Chromecast. But now, Airtel has resolved the problem and subscribers can watch on a bigger screen through web version i.e. www.airtelxstream.in.
How To Login To Airtel Xstream Web Portal?

- You can also select Movies, TV Shows and Live TV option from the left menu.
- Premium contents are also available on the web version, however, you have to pay for the packages.
Can I Watch Live TV Through Airtel Xstream Portal?
Yes, live TV functionality is also added on the web version of the Airtel TV. Airtel Xstream is not just restricted to TV shows and movies, the company is offering live TV shows also. Presently the company is providing 373 channels to its users on its application. The application is also stuffed with more than 10,000 movies to the subscribers says Airtel company spokesperson and the number is expected to be at higher in the near future. However, as of now, only 100 live TV channels are available on the web version of the app.
What is Xstream Premium, and How do I Get It?
If you opt Premium subscription then you can access to the entire catalogue of the latest TV shows, movies, Live TV and more. The premium tag on any content means you need to subscribe for a premium subscription. If you are an Airtel Prepaid user (active on bundle recharges including and above of Rs 199 in value) or Postpaid or Broadband or DTH user then you are eligible to watch premium contents.
Can I Watch Xstream Contents on TV?
The company will soon launch the Xstream Smart Stick device which allows stream contents directly to your TV. You need to connect the Stick via HDMI port of your TV with an external power supply.
Upon providing all these mentioned services the Airtel TV app has banged the JioCinema app due to its stand-alone application which provides both movies and Live TV channels in a single app, and that is not in the case of JioCinema App. The JioCinema app lets its subscribers view only movies, and for live channels, users need to download JioTV application which is exasperating. Also, Jio TV is not available on the web to offer access to Live TV channels. So thanks a ton to Bharti Airtel for this easy to use application and offering TV channels on the Web.
