Adding on to that, these android STBs is said to be bundled with Google Play services, yes, there will be some pre-installed games and apps offered to the users instantly right after the installation.
However, to compete with Reliance Jio DTH service, which is yet to be launched, the largest DTH service provider, DishTV has added three new regional HD channels to its portfolio, including Zee Marathi HD, Zee Bangla HD, and Colors Marathi HD is working to add more in the upcoming days.
On the other hand, Reliance Jio Live Television services will come with 300+ channels initially, and the users can also add up more channels of their future later, along with using the "catch up" feature, which will allow the users to track the shows and movies that were broadcasted in the past seven days, without recording the shows.
Other than these features, a user availing the Reliance Jio DTH services can watch a video on one device, pause it and resume the same movie in other device using the same credentials.
