Why Airtel Xstream Box is the Best Android STB Out There

Airtel Xstream Box is the Android STB (Set-Top Box) on offer from Bharti Airtel. The company offers it via its DTH (Direct-to-Home) arm called Airtel Digital TV. If you have been following the product, you know that it's price has been severely cut over the years. Right now, the STB is selling for Rs 1500 directly on the website of Airtel.

What's the Cost of Tata Play Binge+ STB?

If you are aware, there's another similar STB as the Xstream Box from a major DTH player in the market. The Tata Play Binge+ is the Android STB offering from Tata Play. With this STB, consumers can do everything they can with the Xstream Box.

However, there's a difference between the price of both the products. The Tata Play Binge+ is available for Rs 2199. Users purchasing the STB online can get a discount of Rs 200 using a promo code provided by the company. Regardless of the discount, the Tata Play Binge+ is considerably more expensive.

Both the companies also offer their own OTT aggregation service. Airtel offers Xstream Premium while Tata Play offers Tata Play Binge service. Both require customers to pay additional money.
