JioHomeTV, this is one of the upcoming services from the high-flying telecom operator Reliance Jio. As per the available information, Reliance Jio will offer Standard-Definition (SD) channels at Rs 200 and SD+HD channels at Rs 400, but what’s this service actually? Is it the Jio DTH service which was rumoured for a long time as ‘Will Be Launched Soon?’ And we don’t think that the JioHomeTV service is the much-hyped Jio DTH service as we confirmed the same via the company’s customer care team, local Reliance Digital Stores. So, it’ safe to assume that Jio DTH service is not going to launch anytime soon.
But the JioHomeTV could be the service which Reliance Jio has been testing over the last couple of years on the eMBMS or Enhanced Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service. Earlier, there used to be a JioBroadcast application in the Google Play Store, which is said to offer HD quality streaming service on Jio LTE-Broadcast test devices. The application no more exists on the Google Play Store (But the APK is still available on the web). As per our sources, Jio will be taking the JioBroadcast service live for all the Jio users in the next few weeks as the test trial has already completed.
