February 23, 2018 03:41 PM

After the huge success of Reliance Jio Sim, this time Reliance is going to hit DTH market in India. According to reports, it was said that RIL has tied up with TiVo Corporation which is a familiar name in entertainment tech world. Reliance Jio DTH service may get launched in April 2018 as expected.

What to expect from Jio DTH?

It is expected that the launch of DTH service from JIO will create similar ripple effect in the Dth sector as it did in the Telcom sector. It seems that Jio will once be the catalyst for change that the DTH industry has been waiting for some while now. As per the rumors, Jio will provide a powerful DTH service at nominal fees, providing facilities like Video Recording Facility, Video on Demand, Catch-up TV service, Network Video-Recording Content (Personal), Reliance Jio Android Set Top Box, More Channels in DTH Channel List and other key services to its customers.

Moreover, as per media reports, the DTH will also support a USD port, probably for playing your own media files. The rear panel has a 12V power input, RCA ports for two audio channels and video too. There is also an HDMI port, Ethernet port, and another USB port. Finally, there is a port for the coaxial cable connection.

The second USB port is probably used to connect devices that will be used to record shows for when you are away. The Ethernet port can either be used for debugging purposes or distribute internet connection over the television connection. Although, until anything is made official to the public, everything should be taken in a limited amount

Jio Set Top Box Price

As it is stated above, Reliance is yet to make an official announcement about Jio DTH. But as per the sources, it may launch soon. So, nothing much can be said about the official price of these services, but if one may extrapolate the ‘Jiotelcom price case’ and bank on the so-called rumors, well then, DTH industry is about to see a ripple effect this season, similar to the likes of Telcom industry.

After seeing all, its functions and features we can expect Reliance Jio DTH price around 1,000 only. Where other services providers are selling their boxes between Rs 1,400 to Rs 1,600, Jio Set Top Box will be a lot cheaper than these. But remember again, this is not the official price. Now, an estimated price of Reliance Jio TV set-top box can be said.

As per the monthly plans are concerned, Jio will once again be the people’s favourite, with the low cost plans it may have on offer for its customers. As per the rumors are concerned, the basic pack will be offered at just Rs.49, while other popular plans like Family pack & Ultra Pack can be selected for around Rs.200 & Rs.220 respectively.

The low-price pack will start from Rs.50 which is a lot cheaper than any other DTH services. This low price of packs will attract more customers towards Reliance Jio DTH service. And if this wasn’t good enough, there are various dth recharge coupons available online, that you can use to your advantage and get these plans at evener cheaper rates. To know more about the details, buyers can contact their local Jio stores. Jio official website will also publish about the packs of Jio DTH.

 So, need not worry about packs. Each detail would be known about every plan just after launching it on April’17. Now just wait and watch how Reliance beat all the companies in the television market. And it may bring a digital revolution in the country.

Salient Features of the Reliance Jio DTH

  • Jio DTH services will be available in Android setup box or Apple setup box for streaming of TV channels if the DTH channel is downloaded.
  • Jio DTH service plans will start at Rs 180 per month.
  • With streaming speed of 1 Gbps, the Jio DTH setup box will be backed by Jio broadband connection.
  • As a welcome offer, Reliance Jio is likely to offer 90 days free Jio DTH service to its users.
  • Reliance Jio DTH is likely to have 50 plus HD channels & more than 300 TV channels.


How will the Industry React?

Reliance Jio is set to introduced the DTH to bring the revolution in DTH services by offering the services at lesser price. It is expected that the competitors and so-called big players of this industry will probably go into a price-war with Jio, just like other telecom operators did, resulting in improved quality and reduced prices, ultimately benefiting the customers as a whole.
