Our Take

Both Airtel Xstream Box and ACT Stream TV 4K device offers similar features. But, ACT is offering these services in only four cities. So, we believe that this will not help the company grab more shares in the set-top box market. And, there is a huge difference between the pricing as well. The Airtel Xstream Box is available at Rs. 3,999 with all offers, while the ACT Stream box is available at Rs. 4,499 without any offer.
