JioFiber added VOOT Kids & Amazon Prime in JioFiber Set Top Box.
- The JioFiber set-top box soon will get support for Amazon Prime Video
- Prime Video on JioFiber is not free and requires a subscription of Amazon Prime
- Other OTT streaming apps on JioFiber include Disney+Hotstar, SonyLiv, Voot Kids, and more.
Reliance Jio on Wednesday strengthened its entertainment OTT applications offerings further with the introduction of VOOT Kids on its JioFiber Set Top Box. VOOT Kids is now available within the Set Top Box for JioFiber customers to enjoy the applications.
The break came courtesy of our community forum member Spandan who noticed the introduction of VOOT Kids on JioFiber Set-Top box earlier this morning. JioFiber STB has also got 2 new apps News18 India and Radio 35 Feel the Flow apart from VOOT Kids.
The introduction of VOOT Kids comes to a bit tad late given the fact the OTT app belongs to Viacom18 which is a subsidiary company of Reliance Industries.
JioFiber has consistently ramped up its OTT offerings with the introduction of OTT apps every now and then. JioFiber STB now has over 130 apps although more than 50% of it is random apps. To recall, JioFiber STB had recently got the addition of Amazon Prime Video to its offerings.
VOOT Kids is one of India’s first multi-format kids app from Viacom18. The app lets you watch your favorite shows, read books, listen to stories, and learn with fun, all in one place!
JIOFIBER FINALLY RECEIVES AMAZON PRIME VIDEO SUPPORT
Here is some news for JioFiber set-top box owners that should make them happy. The service has finally gotten Prime Video onboard after the app was seen missing after the launch of JioFiber. But, there is a catch here in that users will still have to buy Prime Video to access the service’s content. The service is not free. The Amazon streaming service comes with excellent shows like tales from the Loop, the man in the High Castle, and much, much more. If you’ve got the app on your JioFiber set-top box, here are a few fantasy movies on Prime Video that you can start checking out.
JioFiber was rather empty when it came to OTT services like Prime Video but has steadily been building its library by adding more and more OOT streaming services. Other streaming services on JioFiber set-top boxes include Disney+Hotstar, SonyLiv, ALT Balaji, and many more. The service still does not have Netflix support but worry not, as it should be added to JioFiber’s roster soon enough. It’s good to see the service add more OTT streaming services as this will only increase the viability of JioFiber.
In other news, Reliance Jio seems to be looking to take on video conferencing apps like Zoom, Google Meet, and more with Jio Meet. The company’s very own video calling app has not been launched yet but going by how Reliance does things, we expect an announcement soon. As previously reported and as a part of the #CoronaHaaregaIndiaJeetega campaign, Reliance Jio is also offering new customers a base plan of 10Mbps without charging any service charge. For existing JioFiber users, the broadband provider is doubling the data which is a part of the plan.
As the lockdown is extended for two more weeks, it looks like we all need a bit of entertainment in our lives, and with the addition of Prime Video to the JioFiber set-top box, there is now more content to consume for JioFiber users.
