Videocon D2H India’s leading satellite TV service provider had showcased its next generation 4K set top boxes back in July 2014. Now these set top boxes are commercially available at the retail outlets as well as through the company’s website. 4K set-top boxes are available for Rs.6590 for new subscribers and for Rs.5990 for existing Videocon D2H subscribers looking to upgrade their set-top boxes.


4K offers an image resolution of 8.3 Megapixel in comparison to the 2 Megapixel resolution offered by full HD 1080p. The set-top box comes with a super USB port which will enable recording along with pause and play functionality for live 4K streams through external USB storage in the future. It also comes with the next generation user interface which Videocon calls UI 4.1.
