Jio Home TV Service
Jio Home TV is going to be a new live streaming service or app where users will be able to enjoy live TV channels in both HD and SD format. According to the report, all SD channels will be available at Rs 200 and the package where both SD+HD channels will be streamed, priced at Rs 400 making it affordable to normal customers and smartphone users.
The new Jio Home Tv app will work on Enhanced Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service. This is a newly developed technology. As of now, most of the spectrums are taken by television & radios and telecom service providers. The big difference between these two types of the spectrum is, TVs and Radios use one-way communication which allows broadcasters to serve a large number of viewers. But in case of telecom networks, they need to provide two-way communication, and that’s why they can’t serve many users using a single tower.
But the Enhanced Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service will reportedly provide both types of communications at the same time, making it possible to serve more users the live Tv channel streaming as well as data, calls and SMS usage. It will be much more scalable and will allow the operator to serve the live streaming service at an affordable cost.
