I got a notification in MI community app with screenshots that stated that I will get PRO subscription in Hungama.com app and my phone is an eligible one. I followed the steps and did not get any PRO account. I followed every step and logged in using my Mi.com account which I had used to buy my MI Max (Prime).
I even got an email from hungama.com after registration:

What I got in Hungama.com is normal account which has lots of popup ads.
Is this is a scam both MI.com and Hungama.com are aware about so that Hungama.com gets more members? At least I had not heard of this app before.
I have anyway asked Hungama.com for an update.

After reminder 5, I got a mail from hungama.com providing the terms and conditions, which included MI Max and purchased after July 1st. I have replied back with a screenshot of my phone's about page which clearly says my phone is MI Max.
After reminder 6 and tweting in twitter, I got a faster reply, but to say that they are investigating:
We are investigating your concern and will try to resolve it as soon as possible.
At least got a reply this time. Will wait for their resolution.
