New Delhi: Reliance Jio created ripples in the telecom industry after it introduced broadband services. The company stepped forward by offering the JioFi portable WiFi hotspot to its customers.
It seems that the company wants to try its hands in the Direct to Home (DTH) segment as well. Reliance will reportedly be launching its services in March or April this year. However, it is not clear whether the set-top box will connect to JioFiber or dish to provide users with content on their TVs.
The remote control reportedly has a mic button indicating that the service will also provide with voice-activated features. Besides, the set-top box houses an S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interface Format) port, an ethernet port, an HDMI port, and also a USB port.
The service can go public during March or April this year. The JioFiber broadband was also said to be going official during the same time, but only few cities have got the test offers in order to monitor how well the broadband services cater the consumers.
Like mobile, sources say, that DTH services will also come with free offers and eventually be low priced.
