After a sensational free internet tide that washed over the nation with excitement Reliance Jio is ready with next big launch. A sense of insecurity and a visible graph of loss surged among telecom companions like Airtel, Vodafone. As a result the JIO counterparts slashed their internet prices and offered unlimited free calling (just like JIO). The JIO impact is so huge that there are talks about Vodafone – Idea merger.

So, Jio Sim and Jiofi (portable WiFi) have already got their share of applause and it’s time for Jio to mark a remarkable place in Direct to Home (DTH) service in India. The expected launch is scheduled for April and there are speculations about set of features JIO DTH will offer like connectivity to JIO Fiber (broadband) . An image is doing rounds on the internet of a black setup box (and it is not a regular flat box) and a remote control. Soon, market experts started their predicaments based on the image. The most interesting one is the presence of a mic button on the remote which confirms the audio control actions, S/P Digital Interface Format port (for output audio), Ethernet port (probably for a connection to a broadband modem), HDMI as well as a USB port on the set-top box.
The broadband called JioFiber is expected to go on the floor officially around March. However it will all depend on how well does the testing process goes. Meanwhile, we all are enjoying free high speed 4G JIO internet and free calling as well. It will be interesting to watch JIO DTH competing with its established counterparts like DISH tv, Tata sky, Airtel DTH and Videocon DTH.
