Isn’t there any trick like VPN or something using which we can use Jio TV on WiFi? This is frustrating.


Lol. Get Jio Vpn…xD
problem here is users could turn jiotv into STB and run on thier ultra cheap WiFi. So jiotv stb launch will be doomed of no use. I don’t even know that Jio TV don’t work on WiFi….lol. i thought it’s vice versa….. always thinking how/why they offering unlimited TV with all TV channels and no conditions applied….:)


Yes you can use jio TV with wifi network,
I use it with wifi provided that you should insert jio sim in your mobile. As soon as I remove jio sim from mobile jio TV doesn’t work using wifi. For that purpose airtel tv works using wifi after onetime registration completed with airtel number.

This is only for JIOTV, genius. Web platforms have their own live streaming on Youtube.
