First look of Reliance Jio smart hybrid set-top-box is here
Reliance Jio hybrid set-top-box (STB) is about to offer live TV service, OTT content and much more through its JioFiber broadband connection.

During the recent AGM, Jio only mentioned about its upcoming hybrid set-top-box (STB), which will provide live TV service, OTT content and much more through its JioFiber broadband connection, but there was no demo or preview of it. Now, first time ever, Reliance Jio’s hybrid STB has been revealed in images by a user.

The images shared by DreamDTH showcase the Reliance Jio hybrid STB in blue color with company’s branding logo on top center of the STB. It can be seenthat it carries various connectivity ports just like an internet router. The Jio box gets an entry port for the coaxial cable of the MSO, an HDMI port, an Ethernet RJ45 port, one USB 2.0 and one USB-3 ports. Presently, the software interface information is not yet available, but it is assumed that Jio hybrid STB could run Android OS with custom UI.

Reliance JioFiber, or previously known as JioGigaFiber, service is all set to commercially launch next week on September 5. The telecom operator has been testing JioFiber in beta stage for about past a year now. As part of the announcement at the AGM, Mr. Mukesh Ambani revealed that Reliance has received more than 15 million registrations from over 1,600 towns in previous one year.

The company has not revealed the exact details about the tariff plans for JioFiber at the AGM. However, the commercial launch is just about a week away so we will just have to wait and watch until the cat is out of the bag. The only thing that Reliance revealed is that, the plans will start from Rs. 700. The plans will go all the way up to Rs. 10,000 depending on the bandwidth as well as the data allowance. In addition, it has also mentioned the JioFiber Welcome Offer during the AGM announcement.
