Reliance announced Jio TV+ at its Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2020 on Wednesday. Jio TV+ is a content aggregator that brings Over the top (OTT) platforms, TV channels, various apps, and services together to its Jio set-top-box users.

During the event Reliance’s Aakash Ambani demonstrated the Jio TV+ User Interface (UI) brings together 12 leading global OTT platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney Hotstar, Sony LIV, and many more as the customers will be able to search for shows and movies easily.

One of the main features of Jio TV+ is that it requires a single login instead of logging in different apps separately. The voice search is much like Amazon Firestick’s Alexa. Jio mentioned that users can access various online apps from different genres from the Jio App Store on the set-top-box. “Through the Jio Developers program, any app developer can develop, launch, and monetize their apps,” Jio said.

“For decades, TV content has been largely broadcast-dependent without any interactivity. With JioFiber, we have reimagined this experience and brought interactivity to TV. Through the Jio App Store on the Set Top Box, one can access internet applications across multiple genres such as entertainment, education, health, cooking, yoga, gaming, religion, and many more,” Akash said at Reliance’s AGM event.

Akash also talked about Jio TV+’s unique interactive features. One of the examples is that the users will be able to participate in a poll or vote for their favourite contestants in reality shows. Furthermore, the realtime comparison of the votes in favour and the percentage will be displayed on screen.

Along with Jio TV+, Reliance also launched its latest innovation Jio Glass. “The Jio Glass is at the cutting edge of technology that provides best-in-class Mixed Reality services to give users a truly meaningful immersive experience,” Kiran Thomas at the event.
