Notably, a state-of-the-art Jio Set-Top Box has been introduced to serve as a gateway to a comprehensive entertainment universe. This encompasses access to TV channels, streaming content, immersive large-screen gaming, and a variety of digital applications, as highlighted in the report.
Included in this offering is a dedicated Jio Smart Home app, featuring an innovative eRemote for the Jio Set-Top Box. This app also offers the convenience of using your smartphone as a gamepad for an enhanced gaming experience. Importantly, the Jio Set-Top Box boasts compatibility with JioCinema and JioTV+, as well as leading global streaming apps, further enhancing its appeal.
