Here is what Jio TV Plus offers

Since many decades, television content has been broadcast-dependent without any possibility of interactivity from the user’s side. In the Reliance AGM 2020, the company claimed that with JioFiber Broadband Service, they are reimagining the television viewing experience and introducing interactivity into the mix. In 2019, the company had launched Jio set-top-box with applications that span across multiple genres such as entertainment, education, health, cooking, gaming, religion, yoga, and much more. With a simple Jio TV Plus download on the Jio set-top-box, a user can access 12 of the leading global Over The Top Media Services platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney Hotstar, Sony LIV, and many more will be available to customers. The company has also claimed in the AGM meeting that users will be able to search for shows and movies easily.
