Reliance Jio will add another feather to its cap by launching the DTH connection along with Jio Fiber. This DTH service will also be called Jio Home TV and will be available with a very cheap and affordable set top box. It is said that Jio Home TV will have Enhanced Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (eMBMS) technology.
Since the launch of Jio Fiber is being delayed, reason being, it is a mammoth project plus some issues with the governmental authorities. Therefore, Reliance Jio, for the time being has shifted its focus towards setting up Jio DTH services.
The Jio DTH set top box does not need a broadband connection, it just requires the interested users to get themselves registered by filling in all their required details. The Jio DTH connection will be much cheaper and will be available at very reasonable rates than the other high cost DTH connections. So, customers thinking of dumping their current digital TV connections can surely replace them with the amazing Jio Home TV DTH connection.
Below are given some major details about Jio DTH aka Jio Home TV:
Launch Date: Diwali 2018 (tentative)
Installation charges: ₹1000
HD Channels: 50 HD channels can be viewed
Free Subscription: Yes, Jio DTH will offer free subscription for three months like the rest of the Reliance Jio services.
Current Status: Beta testing phase
Standard Definition Channels Price/Package: ₹200
High Definition Channels Price/Package: ₹400
This information was leaked out sometime ago and there has been no official confirmation released by Mukesh Ambani as yet, but, it is expected that Jio DTH and Jio Fiber will be available with these packages/plans by the end of this year.
It requires great time and effort to bring to reality such big projects, but Reliance Jio has been doing this task in the past years. So, customers waiting for the official release of Jio’s broadband and digital TV services need to have some patience and trust upon the Reliance Jio engineers for they will provide them with the best technology ever used in India.
