Reliance Jio has finally started issuing its 4K Set-Top Box to the paid JioFiber users in various cities. Over the last few weeks, Reliance Jio is also migrating the JioFiber preview plan users to paid plans alongside acquiring new users with a paid plan. Reliance Jio did not issue Set-Top Box to paid users right away after the commercial launch for some unknown reasons, but now, it started distributing the 4K supported STB to the users who are on a paid JioFiber plan. For the unaware, Reliance JioFiber broadband plans start at Rs 699 and they go all the way up to Rs 8,499 offering speeds of up to 1 Gbps. Reliance Jio’s 4K Set-Top Box comes preinstalled with an app called JioTV Plus or JioTV+, which is a content aggregator app that brings together TV Shows, Movies, Video on Demand and your favourite Applications.

JioTV Plus: What is It and Who Can Avail It?

Broadband service providers like Airtel Xstream Fibre and ACT Fibernet are partnering with OTT content service providers to bundle paid subscriptions with their broadband plans. For example, Airtel Xstream Fibre plans above Rs 999 come with all the Airtel Thanks benefits like free Netflix subscription for three months, free Amazon Prime membership for one year, free ZEE5 Premium membership worth Rs 999 and Airtel Xstream app premium membership.

JioFiber subscribers on paid plans will also get access to OTT subscriptions, according to the company’s website. But Reliance Jio will be following an entirely different way of providing premium OTT subscriptions. While Airtel Xstream Fibre users can redeem the OTT service subscriptions and view the content on respective platforms, it seems like JioFiber customers will be allowed to view the content from the Set-Top Box.

For example, the JioTV Plus app integrates the content from OTT applications. According to Reliance Jio, the JioTV Plus service is “India’s first-ever integrated platform that brings together TV Shows, Movies, Video on Demand and your favourite Applications.”

Also, the JioFiber broadband plans above Rs 849 come with a minimum of three months of OTT apps subscription. As we have reported recently, Reliance Jio 4K Set-Top Box is offering a few Live TV channels to the users and they can be viewed from the JioTV Plus app itself.

Reliance Jio will likely announce its partnerships with OTT content service providers in the coming days or by the end of this year post which we will get an idea of what content will come bundled inside the JioTV Plus app.

JioFiber Broadband Plans Offer At least 3 Months of OTT Apps Subscriptions

Back in September this year, Reliance Jio announced the JioFiber broadband plans and they start at Rs 699. Besides the Rs 699 JioFiber Bronze plan, other broadband plans ship with a minimum of three months OTT apps subscriptions. The JioFiber Rs 699 plan comes with three months of JioCinema and JioSaavn subscriptions, whereas the company says the other plans come with three months of OTT app subscriptions, of which details are not known at the moment.

JioFiber Silver plan of Rs 849 will offer three months of OTT apps subscriptions, whereas the JioFiber Gold, Diamond, Platinum and Titanium plans come with an annual subscription to the same OTT apps. If a subscriber chooses any of the JioFiber broadband plans for one year, then they will get the subscription to OTT apps as well for one year.
