On Wednesday, at the 43rd annual general meeting (AGM) of Reliance Industries Limited, Akash Ambani demonstrated the latest product from Jio Platforms-the Jio TV+. This will curate OTT (over-the-top media) platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Hotstar, among others, into one app and will be voice-search enabled.
Last year, RIL introduced Jio Fiber and the Jio set-top-box. Akash Ambani said that through feedback from the set-top-box users, the company learned that one of the challenges faced was to discover their favourite content from various applications provided.
"This gave birth to Jio TV+, where we have aggregated all the content from over 12 leading global OTT players," he said.
These OTT players include Netflix, Disney+Hotstar, YouTube, Voot, Sony Liv, Jio Cinema, Amazon Prime Video, Zee5, Eros Now, and more.
The voice-enabled search feature will allow users to find movies and TV shows based on favourite actors, directors, genre and even mood categories from all the OTT platforms on one set-top-box with a single login.
Jio TV+ will also allow users to participate in live polls on TV channels. You will also be able to access online apps.
