Want to know about Jio Fiber TV in Details?

Well i have got your back on all your queries. First of all let me clarify a few things. Jio fiber offers the Jio settop box free of cost with its Rs 2500 fiber connection no matter which plan you opt for.

The Rs 1500 installation however does not include the settop box.

You can use this set-top box to watch LIVE TV and other content that it has to offer.

To know more about the premium plans click here. Jio Fiber used to offer free TV with certain Annual Plan recharges, however those offers have been subsided in the new plans.

Does Jio Fiber TV Use Data?

Jio fiber TV operates on the latest android version 9 & for now works only with internet and hence consumes data.

It can be connected over wifi or through the Ethernet cable. It is not mandatory that it shall work only with jio fiber router. Infact you can connect it to any broadband provider or device that has wifi hotspot/ethernet capability and enjoy the services normally.

Even you can connect it with your smartphone or JioFi/Airtel hotspot and use normally but the connection should be stable and of high bandwidth. ( Most phones offer a 2.4Ghz band only )

Jio Fiber TV Cable

Yes Jio fiber TV set-top box has a conventional cable port apart from being blutooth, wifi and Ethernet enabled. Jio fiber TV cable will soon be available to its users. Den and Hathway networks shall provide the cable connection as per Jio reports.

Jio Fiber Tv Data Usage Per Hour

Using the Jio fiber Set-top box to watch TV and other content roughly consumes about 2-2.5Gb of data per hour on a 42” FULL HD/4K Tv.

If you plan on using the Jio fiber Settop box primarily, ditching your conventional settop box to watch TV and other content be sure to have a plan that provides high data cap and at least a speed of 30+ Mbps.

If watching TV is your main intent opt for at least a silver or above plan..

To watch LIVE TV and stream other content on television/laptop make sure to connect the jio fiber tv settop box to a 5Ghz band as streaming on large screen devices needs more bandwidth.

Connecting it to 2.4Ghz band shall lead to buffering and will not provide a great experience.

Jio Fiber TV Remote

The jio Fiber TV remote that comes bundled with it pairs itself over Bluetooth to the Jio Fiber set-top box. As it connects over Bluetooth the range is pretty good and has a distinct advantage over RF remotes of conventional settop box. The Bluetooth implemented is blutooth 5.0 and hence has very good battery backup alongside a stable long range connection.

Jio Fiber TV Video Calling

Jio Fiber TV offers video calling but to call using your tv you need to purchase the Jio Tv Camera that comes as an accessory. It is a simple plug and play device and connects via USB to the Jio Fiber Tv.

Can Jio fiber TV replace the conventional settop box?

The simple answer is yes it can and has even the ability to turn your boring normal TV to smart TV as it is an hybrid settop box and operates on latest android 9. The initial booting time is also fairly low at 20 seconds and starts up almost immediately from sleep. By conventional settop box standards this is fast. I know now how slow was my Videocon dth HD.

Does Jio Fiber Offer TV Channels?

Yes Jio Fiber TV offers LIVE TV channels.

As of now Jio fiber TV offers 300+ channels through its Jio TV+ app. Do not confuse this app with Jio TV that most of you use on. Jio TV is entirely dedicated to portable devices such as smartphones and tablets while Jio TV+ app is especially developed for Jio Fiber Settop box.

Jio TV app offers more channels than the Jio Tv+ app. Now you must be asking then why not install the Jio TV app on the set-top box and use it instead of the Jio TV+ app.

The thing is you cannot do so. Jio store in Jio fiber set-top box doesn’t have the Jio TV app and Jio has restricted access to install apps from third party sources via USB on the Jio TV set-top box.However i did try all permutation and combination but all in vain.

Besides as of now Jio TV app is neither available on Jio Store or play store for android TV’s. I did try sideloading the Jio TV app on my android TV through USB, it worked but the orientation was wrong.

Jio TV app is optimized & compatible with portrait and landscape mode but only in portable devices and not on TV’s.
