JioTV App Increases its Channel Base from 368 to 412

Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Jio launched its 4G services in September 2016 together with a range of premium Jio applications. These include TV streaming, music and movie streaming, and digital wallet applications, among many others. JioTV has been one of the most popular apps on Google Play offering users access to some of their favorite TV shows. The app has now added a collection of 44 new channels, bringing up JioTV’s channel count from the earlier 368 to 412.

Number of channels included

Of the channels included, 9 belong to the entertainment segment, 18 to the news segment, 3 to the music segment, 4 to the movie segment, and 6 to the devotional segment.  While earlier, there were 112 news channels, the recent addition has taken the number to 130. Additionally, there are 99 entertainment channels in all now. The number of music channels sums up to 34, while the movie channels total up to 36. The collection on JioTV also includes a channel on infotainment business news and two channels in the lifestyle segment.

The most comprehensive channel list

Jio is among the first mobile TV apps to offer such a large number of channels. This easily makes Jio’s services similar to those offered by multi-system operators (MSOs) and direct-to-home (DTH) operators. JioTV includes channels offered by the leading broadcasters in India. These include Discovery Networks India, TV Today Network, ABO News Network, Sony Pictures Networks India (SPNI), Star India, NDTV, Turner India, Viacom 18, TV 18, Sun TV, and ZEEL.

Rich digital experience

Through JioTV, users can enjoy live television channels. If they miss out any program, JioTV’s past seven-day collection of shows will enable them to view the missed episodes. The app is also Star India operated, Hotstar’s digital partner. Moreover, Google Play has recorded about 10 to 15 million JioTV downloads by users.

Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Jio has strengthened its customer base with over 50 million users. Although the total worth of apps, including JioCinema, JioMags, JioMusic, JioXpress News, JioMoney, Jio Cloud, and JioTV for a month is Rs. 1,250, all these applications are currently offered for free under the Jio Happy New Year Offer. This offer, which is valid until the end of March 2017, gives users access to free data services as well as Jio apps. Before this new offer was introduced, customers were using the services available under the initial welcome offer. Existing as well as new Jio customers can conveniently avail of the Jio Happy New Year Offer. However, the only difference that exists between the former offer and the new one is the revised data limit. The Fair Usage Policy (FUP) limit for the former was 4 GB, while the FUP limit for the new one is 1 GB. With a customer base of more than 50 million, the company intends to increase the number to 100 million by the end of March 2017.

Summary

Reliance Jio’s TV app, JioTV now has a total of 412 channels. The Jio Happy New Year Offer also gives customers access to free data and app services.
