Airtel TV Will Soon Be Accessible on Web With Live TV Service, Currently Under Testing

Airtel TV app, which is a popular Live TV and OTT platform for Airtel subscribers will now bring its services for web users

Highlights
  • Over the web, subscribers will be able to login using OTP to access Airtel TV
  • Airtel TV has 373 channels and more than 10,000 TV shows and movies on board

Bharti Airtel has not only revamped its prepaid and postpaid portfolio to make its plans attractive, but the Sunil Bharti Mittal led telco has also directed its focus on content. Whether it is video-on-demand, over the top content, music or textual content, Airtel has grown in leaps and bounds in the last few years. One of the most popular applications in the Bharti Airtel portfolio is Airtel TV which avails live TV to the users. However, the Airtel TV service was not available for web-users, but it seems that Airtel might be looking to change that. It has come to our knowledge that Airtel will soon be launching the Airtel TV service on the web as it has been seen testing it for users right now. The good thing is Airtel even providing Live TV service to the customers on the web version.

Airtel TV Content Now Easily Accessible on Laptop and Other Web Devices

We think that this new move by Airtel has been made to take on the likes of JioCinema and other competing OTT apps. It is worth noting that just like Airtel subscribers get access to Airtel TV’s wide range of movies, TV shows and documentaries, similarly, Reliance Jio also has a JioCinema app in its portfolio where subscribers can access this content for free. However, what’s unique about the new service by Airtel is that it will be accessible through the web and not only just smartphone apps. Previously, this wasn’t possible, and hence users were limited to streaming the content on Airtel TV app only on small screens. Perhaps, the only way to stream this content on bigger screens was through Chromecast, but thankfully the subscribers of Airtel won’t have to go through this ordeal to watch the content from Airtel TV on a bigger screen. The web version can be accessed at https://www.airtelxstream.in/.

Airtel subscribers will be able to log in on the Airtel TV website, where they will be able to access the Airtel TV content on their laptop, tablet or any browser. When Airtel subscribers open the site and play a show or movie of their choice, they will be asked to enter their number, upon doing which they will receive an OTP for logging into the website.

Having said that, Airtel is not providing the entire content available on Airtel TV on the desktop version. For example, the web version lacks ZEE5 content, but the telco might add them once it rolls out the service to the public. Earlier, the Live TV version was not available on the web version, but it can now be seen on the online portal as well which is a good thing.

Airtel TV Offering More than 10,000 Movies and TV Shows

It is worth noting for the subscribers that the Airtel TV application does not remain limited to movies or TV shows, but it also offers live TV shows to the users as well. Currently, Airtel TV is offering 373 channels to the subscribers, out of which 62 are HD channels. In addition to that, the application provides more than 10,000 movies to the viewers.

The Airtel TV app also has one upper hand over the JioCinema app since it is a standalone app which houses both LiveTV channels and as well as video-on-demand content like an OTT platform. But, this is not the case with JioCinema, as the application only avails movies and shows, but if you need to access live TV shows, then you will need to download the JioTV application.
