Reliance Big Tv Offers Free HD Channels for 1 Year
Reliance Big Television on Wednesday announced the launch of a brand new plan in its Direct To Home (DTH) services in India as part of the Indian government’s Digital India initiative. The Anil Ambani-promoted Reliance Big Television, with this new plan, claims to offer “free access” to both free-to-air channels (up to 500) for a period of five years as well as pay channels (including Hi-def channels) for a period of one year. Pre-booking for the set-top box will begin on the official Reliance Big Television website from 10 am on March 1, subject to stock availability.
With its latest Hi-def HEVC set-top box, Reliance Big Television will offer features like schedule recording, Universal Serial Bus ports, YouTube access, and simultaneous viewing and recording of Television shows. Pre-booking will be accessible via the official website. An amount of Rs. 499 is payable to confirm the booking; with an additional Rs. 1,500 payable on receipt of the set-top box and outdoor unit.
Once free access to pay channels ends after the 1st year, Reliance Big Television clients will need to recharge their set-top box with a monthly amount of Rs. 300 from the second year onwards to get the refund of the initial amount of Rs. 2,000 on completion of 2 years of successful monthly installments. Which implies that clients will be eligible for a refund 3 years after the initial purchase. The amount will be refunded in the shape of account recharge value.
“Today, Reliance Big Television is going to mark the onset of a brand new dawn in the way Indians have been accessing entertainment on their Television sets. Starting from today, entertainment comes efficiently free from cost, with the most recent offer by Reliance Big Television. Now every Indian household can enjoy top quality home entertainment & students may have free from cost access to education content with latest Hi-def HEVC set Top box,” said Vijender Singh, Director at Reliance Big Television, commenting on the development.
