As the broadband and DTH segment gets competitive in its preparation for the coming of Reliance Jio GigaFiber, Hathway has the responsibility of adding new subscribers and luring in more customers. To do that, the Hathway Cable and Datacom has introduced a new offer wherein it is giving free Play Box Android streaming device with long term broadband plans. It is worth noting that just like other products from DTH service provider, this one will also do the job of bringing OTT applications on to your TV screen, and like the name suggests it will also come with the Android TV platform to make OTT streaming possible.
Hathway Play Box Complimentary With Long-Term Broadband Plans
Under this offer, Hathway has announced that it will be offering the Hathway Play Box to the subscribers in Chennai who opt for 100 Mbps plans or above for two months or more. Notably, in Chennai, Hathway offers four fibre based plans providing 100 Mbps to 300 Mbps speeds. These plans start from Rs 949 per month. For this offer, the subscribers will have to shell out a minimum of Rs 2,847 for a subscription of the 100 Mbps plan for three months which offers 1TB FUP limit monthly.

Similarly, we have confirmed with Hathway that this offer will be available in other cities like Hyderabad as well, but there could be a few tweaks depending on the city of service.
Play Box Android TV Based STB Features and Price
To recall, Hathway had launched the Play Box Android TV STB device back in January for a retail price of Rs 2,999.
