- Both SD and HD channels are said to be available in the pack
- Jio Broadcast app will likely be rebranded to Jio Home TV
- This is not expected to be Jio’s upcoming DTH service
As per a report by TelecomTalk, Reliance Jio is planning to soon launch its new Jio Home TV service that is said to be a modified version of the Jio Broadcast app, which was recently being tested for streaming HD content on select devices. According to the report, Reliance Jio will roll out this feature for all Jiousers, with a rebranded version called Jio Home TV. Do note, however, that this piece of news comes from an unconfirmed source and might not be completely accurate.
eMBMS is said to be a hybrid technology that combines the capabilities of TV channel and radio architecture to create a scalable solution for providing HD content in high volumes. Further, an active Internet connection will not be required for accessing this content as most of it will be placed in broadcast mode for offline access. An apparent confirmation from Jio comes through Reliance Industries’ third quarter report that specified the testing of Jio’s eMBMS testing pan-India.
Earlier this month, Reliance Jio had announced the deployment of Massive MIMO pre-5G/ 4G technology at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium and Delhi’s Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium to offer high speed Internet access and enhance user experience during IPL 2018.
