Reliance Jio has introduced a new feature to the popular Live TV streaming application JioTV. JioTV users can now watch the ongoing Nidahas Trophy cricket matches in five different camera angles, and Jio is calling it as India’s First interactive sports experience for consumers. For the unaware, Jio has recently bagged the rights to telecast the tri-nation Nidahas trophy happening in Srilanka. With this new feature, JioTV consumers can interact with the game while watching it.
The latest app update brings a host of new changes and viewers who’re watching the tri-series can customise their viewing experience by selecting the view from five different camera angles, experience audio from stump mic & stadium ambience which gives an immersive feel, choose commentary in a language of their choice – Hindi, English, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada.
Alongside these features, users will also get access to leading cricket experts and commentators including Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra and Gaurav Kapoor. And as usual, JioTV users can also watch catch-up content in case they’ve missed a ball or a six.
Jio is currently enabling more users to watch Live TV on smartphones. Bagging exclusive rights of Nidahas Trophy is already one of the massive achievement for the company as most of the users (including me) are streaming live matches on JioTV app itself.
Reliance Jio says that it has put the power of technology in the hands of the consumers, enabling them to challenge status quo. Till date, viewers are fed a single feed with broadcaster controlled video, commentary and score-boarding. With this innovation of digital interactivity, the game-viewing experience will get redefined and am pretty sure every cricket lover is going to enjoy these new features.
Lastly, JioTV users need to update their app to the latest version of the app from the relevant app store- Google Play Store or Apple App Store. Reliance Jio has recently added 10GB free data add-on pack to JioTV users.
