While we await the official rollout of Jio Fiber, Jio is gearing up to launch Internet-based JioHome TV services. The SD and HD TV packs are already listed on the official Jio Website and cost Rs. 200 and Rs. 400, respectively. But these are listed as first recharge voucher and eventual rates may vary.
Reliance Jio Fiber service has already been in the testing phase in several circles, and it makes perfect sense that Jio would want to target DTH market in the next stage of its digital revolution.

Recently, Jio extended free subscription of all Jio apps including JioTV for another year for its Jio Prime members. New members have to pay a nominal fee of Rs. 99
So, should you postpone renewing your DTH subscription? Well no, this could still take a while since there is no official word yet and Jio services are known to miss launch targets (or Pseudo-targets that we hear of).
