Bhai logo…. at present, I have been using DEN HD Box which is costing me Rs.620/per month for all the channels. We do not watch much TV Channels now-n-days. We have Fiber Connection with 300 mbps speed. So I was thinking of getting rid of HD Box and purchasing a Android Box or something like this.. need your valuable suggestions smile

  • Is there any Android Box ( or any other thing ), where I can install JIO and watch channels in HD Quality?
  • Anyone with Voice Command Remote / Google Assistant would be more useful.
  • It will be used be wife as well so it should be simple in use… not very technical.

Any suggestions / comments are highly appreciated smile

This comment if based on purely my observations and experience:
Jio TV does not work on Android Box (its kind of hit nd miss) Earlier versions used to work, but they stopped after few days, now it asks login.. and I said its hit and miss..
Even if it works, UI is not that intuitive for android Box(Big screen) Mouse is needed.
Jio TV + (which is extracted from Jio set top box) needs an active Jio plan of 999 or above
Others can add their own experience..

Thanks @getready & @wackophant for your reply smile

Having JIO TV, the idea was so watch normal channels, if anybody wants to see anytime.
Is there any other way to watch normal TV Channels without fee?

Or I should go with SonyLiv, Color TV et. etc. subscriptions? But if I do this, it will be cost effective and I need to keep on switching the Apps while TV Channels are convenient and doesn’t need broadband wink

You can give thoptv a try
May not be convenient as DTH/Cable TV but you will get used to it

Even with ThopTV, you need device with widevine L1 certification for HD streaming

Buy a firestick. You are currently paying 620×12 i.e. about 7.5K per year. Even if you take all subscriptions at full value, total subscription cost will still be less than 5K. And you can further reduce cost by Timesprime/Flipkart coins etc. You already have a broadband so no additional cost on that account.
You will need Hotstar, Sonyliv, Zee5 and Voot.

I’ve used smart TV’s, firestick, but still normal DTH connections gives the most satisfaction. Even with a fast internet I struggle to use these.

@xuseronline My friend. Long time no see.
Btw, i am using https://www.amazon.com/Android-TV-Box-Quad-Core...
I knew i won’t be paying money for each each when TRAI implemented the new rule. Bought this box directly from China in 2k19 and it’s almost 2 years everything is just working fine. No cable tv no dish no issues whatsoever.

Nope!
Den is Cable TV smile

Yes I know its cable TV but they are replacing the DEN set top box with Jio set top box.

check there are videos on youtube which are more then a year old.
I have hathway and my provider offered to replace with jio for 250 rs, on the box it was mentioned not for sale.

Also jio box has USB, not sure if its for recording or playback.

there are 2 variants of jio box, hybrid one for fiber broadband and one for cable tv.

This is what some reviews say – You can use thop tv in thop tv due to copyright issues jio tv is named as jasmine tv , and only download thop tv for android tv and side load in your device

Thanks bro, I have 100 Mbps jio fibre connection. Wil it be good enough for 2 TV?

Noob Question – How to side load these Thop/Jasmine/Allium TV apps? Do I need to buy some connector or any other tool?

100Mbps is more than enough
For side loading just use the usb 2.0 slot on Mi Box ( Pen drive / HDD )
