As you know, Jio is all set to launch its DTH set top box in India. The booking for DTH will be starting online on their official website. Before Rumors was that it will be unveiled in June of 2017 But there are reports now that it will launch this end of May 2017. With that Jio is also looking forward to launching 4G Volte phone priced at Rs 1500.What if I tell you that they have released some clue of the set top box on their official site? Yes, if you go to the recharge page of Jio you can see the sneak peak of Jio DTH.

Yes,  they are planning to introduce DTH Set Top box this year. Jio TV has already given 432 free channels to all users. This will set a big competition to the rival operator such as DISH TV, Airtel Digital TV, Tata Sky etc.
