Reliance Jio is planning to launch its Jio DTH service very soon.
As we can see in the picture Jio DTH Set Top Box is ready. We can expect the launch of Jio Broadband service and Jio DTH together.
The new pictures are quite different from the ones leaked earlier, which had revealed a round set-top box. Leaked in February, the images had a Jio-branded remote along with set-top box which had a circular top as seen in above picture which was a new design.
However, new leaked images suggest Jio has the common rectangular design for its set-top box after all. The pictures show a blue box with Reliance Jio branding on top as well as new set-top box. The device has a number of ports including a standard cable connector, HDMI, USB, as well as audio and video output. There’s also an Ethernet port, which will allow users to connect to a modem to offer broadband.
If you are using any other DTH service then you must be paying around 250-300 per month. Jio DTH plans will be around Rs. 180-200. Also JioTV is said to offer more than 360 channels, at least 50 of which will be in HD. There will be a seven-day ‘catch up’ option to . This content is not saved locally, but on Jio servers and pulled in as per demand. Users will be able to use a voice enabled remote to search by channel, show, category or even by the names of actors.
Just like its data services, Reliance Jio is expected to offer its DTH services at much lower prices than its rivals. The leaks hint at the fact the services might launch pretty soon in the coming months, starting with Mumbai. To recall, the company had said that its Jio fibre service will offer high-speed Internet at up to 1 Gbps speeds. With Jio fibre, users will be able to stream and play high-definition games with multiple players and buffer 4K videos easily.
Jio never wants to charge customers until they are satisfied with the service provided. So, you can expect Jio to offer 90 days of free Jio DTH service as a welcome offer promotion.
