Reliance Jio may launch JioHomeTV offering SD and HD channels soon

If the latest rumours are anything to go by, we may soon see the arrival of Jio Home TV in the Indian market.

Reliance Jio may be gearing to launch new service called Jio Home TV, which could turn out to be next market disrupter after the telecom operator took on some dominant telecom players with its VoLTE-enabled mobile network. Under this, the company will offer SD channels at Rs. 200 and SD+HD channels at Rs. 400.

By using Jio's new service, users won't have to rely on an active internet connection as the company could broadcast some content for offline viewing even in HD, the report added. The report also notes that the upcoming JioHome TV service will be a separate service altogether and not be a part of company's DTH services that has reportedly been postponed by the company for now.


An executive said that Xiaomi and Reliance Jio senior officials have met several times in the last few weeks to talk about the deal. The eMBMS technology combines one-to-many broadcast systems used by TV and radio channels and one-to-one architecture used by telecom service providers.

While there has been no confirmation or announcement from Reliance Jio regarding this, the company previous year, during its quarterly update for the third quarter stated that it had successfully performed eMBMS broadcast streams across India. There are also chances that the rumored JioHome TV could be a rebranded version of this JioBroadcast app. However, it must be noted that the information presented above comes from unofficial sources, which means that it should be taken with a pinch of salt.

It can be noted that the aggressive play by the cash rich Reliance Jio in the segment has led to massive pain among the incumbents, and led to a slew of corporate actions including exists and nearly forced mergers and acquisitions. However, it is still unclear if JioHome TV service will replace the long-rumored Jio set-top box or will launch as a separate new service. Share your views with us in the comments section below.
