Reliance Jio is preparing to launch its own home broadband and IPTV or Internet TV service soon in India. The company which has disrupted the mobile industry of the country is now looking ahead for more endeavors. Recharge option for home broadband and Jio Link (Internet TV) is already live on Jio’s website.
Bharti Airtel is the company which seems to be most affected by Reliance Jio. The former has just launched its Internet TV set-top box in the country. Although it comes with top notch specifications and features, Airtel has made it pretty costly. You need to pay at least Rs. 4,999 to get it only for 3 months. If you want more validity, you can shred Rs. 7,999 and get all of its services for a year.
Jio, known for its extreme affordability will surely beat Airtel Internet TV with its Jio Link set top box. Nevertheless, both of them will sport similar features and bring a new standard of entertainment to Indian households. Even though we know that Reliance is working hard to launch its IPTV service as soon as possible, there is no specific release date.
Speaking of Jio Home Broadband, it is a high-speed wired internet service which is currently being tested for commercial launch in India. Featuring speeds up to 1 Gbps, it will bring new horizons to the India’s internet usage. Being a product of Reliance Jio, we highly expect the prices to be well within the reach pf common people.
Just like its broadband service, Reliance is also field testing its set-top box in the country. While we don’t yet know about its pricing, the Jio set top box supports tons of features, starting from recording live TV, streaming from the internet, playing from pen drives or hard disks, and several more. Stay tuned to know every detail about Jio’s broadband and internet TV services in India.
